Pennard House, a handsome country estate in the gentle Somerset countryside, was the setting for this editorial which demonstrates how to retain a chic, neutral wedding colour palette, yet still incorporate warm tones in your florals and details.
It was shot entirely on film by luxury wedding photographer Liz Baker, to ensure a raw, natural look. Liz conceived the project and originally gave this editorial the title “Go Gently” after a line in a favourite song. Called Underneath the Stars, the song is a beautiful modern folk song by British folk artist Kate Rusby (click here to listen). Inspired by this title, Liz joined forces with Emma Joy the Wedding Planner to create a collaboration which focused on keeping things simple and serene.
Notes from The Photographer
Pennard’s quintessential English manor and Emma Joy’s gentle styling brings to mind scenes from a Jane Austen love story. The epitome of dreamy Georgian elegance, Pennard House’s laid-back style has been the backdrop of choice for fashion and interiors editorials over the years, and is available for your exclusive use.
Going gently on the senses with a warm but pared-back palette of yellow, gold and a touch of blush, with the finest of barely-there makeup and tousled hair from Tracy Pallari. Going gently on fashion with an elegant Chantilly lace dress handmade by Naomi Neoh London and intricate hand-crafted accessories by Victoria Fergusson. Going gently on nature with seasonal and foraged florals from Grace at Bramble & Wild, and artisan silks hand-dyed in Cornwall with cinnamon and turmeric by Sian of Lancaster & Cornish.
Handlettered and watercolour deckle-edged paper goods created by Laura E Patrick, and rolled beeswax candles, finished the look. L.K.Bennett shoes and an Antique Jewellery Company ring ensured the finest British style was represented, and Leanne (the Baking Chick) created two breathtaking, minimalist cakes.
We demonstrate here the beauteous possibilities when you invite thoughtful creatives to work with you on your wedding design. Creatives who work from the heart, making with their own hands, working together to produce a truly one-of-a-kind wedding.
