Elegant Davenport House Shropshire Wedding

Shropshire Wedding Styled Photography


Woooahhhhh….check out this beautifully elegant Davenport House Shropshire Wedding styled photography shoot from last month!! I worked with total babe Alice Northrop from Alice Northrop Creative to create a ‘Vanity Fair at the Oscars’ inspired wedding shoot! I adore the Vanity Fair portraits which come out every year after the Oscars of the rich and famous and wanted to create something with the same glamour and elegant vibe.

Alice and I came up with a mood board on Pinterest and Alice had a fab vision with the flowers. Sarah from Petals by Sarah came on board and immediately understood Alice’s vision and supplied us with the most gorgeous flowers to fit with our vision of blacks, dark greys, deep greens and pops of colour. Full list of flowers used, below.

Davenport House, a Shropshire Grade 1 listed Georgian Country House, was the obvious choice for the shoot. Renovated to a beautiful standard, with high ceilings and windows stretching from the ceiling to floor – it was perfection for the whole shoot and really lends itself to gorgeous side light, dramatic images. Our stunning mermaid skirt crepe La Sposa dress was from Hagley Bridal Studios, and the bridal boutique’s owner, Louise, was a dream to work with on the day – nothing was too much for her. The stunning hair up do was created by Louise Price Hair Designs and she used the hand-made hair clips from Jenny at Shropshire Jewellery Designs, worked into the hair. Lucy, our model, looked amazing and I had to keep commuting on her smile – gorgeous!

Lou Paper provided lush dark wedding stationery with sweeping lettering and elegant water colour detailing – which looked fab styled out on the table with ribbons from Silk and Purl. Alice styled the table with colourful plates and gold cutlery. The beautiful three tiered cake from Sugar and Bloom, dark blue with splashes of gold, sat perfectly amongst everything.

A selection from the day are below – I’ll be posting more to my social media so keep an eye out!
