I’m so pleased to be able to share this incredible Jane Austen inspired shoot set at the beautiful Prior Park College in Bath, that I photographed recently. The shoot was the brain child of Lauren Alexander Weddings, who coordinated and styled the shoot.
It was the most amazing day and I was so lucky to be able to work with some of the best wedding suppliers and small business across the South West. Set against the backdrop of Bath and some of the most beautiful Georgian architecture, reinforcing the Austen theme, The shoot showcased two main looks for the Bride and Groom. A more traditional wedding look that was sympathetic to the ‘Austen’ look and then the second look which was a modern take on the theme.
The shoot was shot at the stunning Prior Park College a fabulous venue for a wedding. With stunning architecture and impressive grounds, and situated overlooking Bath, it provided a beautiful backdrop for the shoot. Together with a lot of hard work and some incredible products; From the amazing flowers, hand-sewn hankies, Georgian wallpaper patterned boots, and out-of-this-world wedding dresses to authentic styled cakes, luxurious calligraphy styled stationery and some gorgeous hair and make-up, a wedding styled shoot reminiscent of Jane Austen came life.
Lauren said she wanted to create something that was beautiful, classic and achievable for a couple who cherish the little things; who see the importance of sustainability, and who love colour used in an elegant way. But most importantly appreciate a little quirkiness. She definitely did that.
