With Game of Thrones season 7 coming up, we thought it would be the perfect theme for a styled bridal shoot at the stunning Berwick Lodge.
The wedding venue, build in 1890 has a quirky but elegant feel to it and the gardens offer a woodland look, with a few surprise ornate structures.
Two dresses were used from the dress designer, Lisa Keating. The first was a bead encrusted corset in pale gold, laced up with ribbon. This was worn with a long net skirt with lots of layers which created a whimsical look.
To top off the outfit we added a lace cape which gave a regal feel to finish the outfit. I made a head piece out of twisted hazel which was sprayed gold and sprinkled with beads.
The second dress was a similar soft gold colour, again with beaded detail over a silk underlay and long train. We alternated using the cape with this dress to show the versatility.
The flowers were a natural forest look with bright contrasting reds and purple to add a pop of colour to the photographs. The lovely green ferns and foliage set off the unusual flowers perfectly, and orange florist wire intercity wound throughout the whole bouquet.
Lisa Elliot also made an incredible flower headpiece for the second dress and even decorated the garden swing and table for us.
The table consisted of ornaments from the Lodge along with a few props that I managed to source, including a 17th Century sword! The key fob is actually a room key, but we exchanged it for a more in style one for the day.
It’s amazing once you have decided to do a styled shoot how many opportunities and ideas present themselves and when the option of a white horse came up I jumped at it.
He was the perfect prop, even though they do say you should never work with children and animals I do like to push myself. So taking much care with the silk and lace dresses Lili managed to pose amazingly with bare feet and a few horse nibbles. A much-earned apple was his treat at the end.
The shoot was really relaxed and we explored the gardens trying out as many ideas as we could. I even got the chance to take a couple of shots with my Lens baby (lensbaby.com) and used a crystal to capture a more experimental look.
