I was scouting this old abbey for clients when the idea of a ethereal bridal shoot came to mind. Inspired by the mystical atmosphere of this stunning old Abbey, this shoot aimed to tell the story of a future bride, just before her engagement – a suspended moment in the restful calm of a hallowed place.
The feeling was so present in the walls, the stone arches and terracotta floor that I wanted the design to reflect it through a minimalist and clean style – a simple table setting with beautiful stationery and some muted fall colours in the flowers and candles brings a warm and elegant atmosphere.
In the middle of the strong elements of this venue, a young barefoot girl with an ethereal innocence moves, the fluid fabrics of her dress brings life, contrasting with the austerity of the place.
