Chewton Glen Wedding Photoshoot
Earlier this year we received a phone call asking us to take part in a wedding photoshoot at the incredible Chewton Glen Hotel and Spa in New Milton.
It was such an exciting idea and we immediately said yes, whilst scanning the rails in the boutique, picking out gowns that would suit the stunning settings of a ‘Chewton Glen Wedding’. This has been an extremely popular venue with a number of our brides and it is clear to see why! The Hotel & Spa is set in 130 acres of picturesque English countryside right in the heart of the New Forest.
After a couple meetings with our partners for the photoshoot, who are all local businesses, we settled on the shoot being centred around the ‘Walled Garden’. The Walled Garden is the perfect outside space in a simply magical setting, the aromas of the herbs and stunning flowers surrounding the wedding ceremony pergola were perfect.
The dresses that we settled on for the shoot needed to be exquisite. We would need some incredible gowns to to help steal the show and not be overpowered by the stunning setting. We selected wedding gowns from our designer collections including Suzanne Neville, Augusta Jones and Jesus Peiro.
Our floral contributors led by Emma, Arcade Flowers, wanted to bring a victorian decadence to the floral display, and there was certainly an abundance of drama! Emma created a stunning bouquet for brides which included Roses, Clematis and Orchids.
Also featuring in the photoshoot were Fancie Buns Cakery who create show stopping cakes and sweet treats. The display at Chewton Glen featured a four tier iced cake decorated with stunning sugar flowers and fine lace, with yummy macaroons and cake pops for the table. The display was so chic yet had a beautifully traditional feel.
Photographs were taken by the immensely talented Abi Chadwick. Her photographs have graced many front covers of glossy magazines. We were in awe of watching her work. Keep scrolling for a selection of the beautiful images.
Hair and Makeup was overseen by Annette at Elegance Bridal Coiffure. Annette created an elegant and understated look for our model, which is perfect for the ‘classic’ bridal look, with warm nude tones and sheer pink lip colouring.
Dahlia Hill, who has recently started her own wedding planning business ‘Dahlia Hill Weddings’, was the person who brought us together for the shoot. Dahlia has a wealth of experience in planning weddings across the globe and we are lucky to now have her based in Hampshire. She is happy to assist with as much or as little as brides require on the lead up to their big day.
We are thrilled to announce that this stunning photoshoot will be featured in the Dorset and Hampshire Wedding Magazine later this month!
