The fabulous Bex from Oakleaf Weddings and Events contacted me to ask if I wanted to supply a cake for her upcoming styled shoot. I couldn’t wait to be involved! The brief was “Bright and Botanical” which sounded amazing. The venue was East Riddlesden Hall, a beautiful National Trust property in (surprisingly enough) East Riddlesden, Bradford. The barn has just had some new full height glass doors installed and they let in so much light. It’s an amazing space, complete with fairy lights to add a bit of sparkle.
We were kept company by the ducks too.
These are a few photos from behind the scenes. Obviously I can’t reveal much, and my photos aren’t a patch on what the official photographers Caitlin + Jones took, but it was a fabulous afternoon with glorious weather. Styled shoots are a chance to push boundaries and come up with new ideas, and we worked a little bit of magic at East Riddlesden Hall!
Lynne from Stems Design created floral arrangements which were out of this world, Hannah from All Things Borrowed provided the most fabulous props, the dresses from Hayley at Glory Days were beyond beautiful (and she had MADE THEM herself) and the model Tasha looked beautiful with make up from Sarah Isaacs and hair by April Bull. We also had crockery from Whitehouse Crockery and stationery from Lorna at EYI Love.
Here’s a “proper” image from Caitlin + Jones as a bit of a teaser – I can’t wait to see more!
