Styled Shoot: Elegant English Summertime Romance by Hannah Brooke Photography


Styled Shoot: Elegant English Summertime Romance by Hannah Brooke Photography

DATE 9 October 2020

As summertime fades, we are desperately holding onto the sweet romance of setting sun, warm air and vibrant surroundings. This shoot, captured by our brilliant guest list photographer Hannah Brooke Photography, epitomises such days – duly reminding us that summer 2021 is perhaps trumping Christmas as the next big thing to look forward to…


Beautiful Bowcliffe

With the brief an elegant and classic British summertime wedding, there was no doubt in Hannah’s mind when choosing a fitting setting – the rural climbs of Bowcliffe Hall, in Bramham, West Yorkshire.

With sprawling gardens and captivating countryside views stretching over 28 acres of private land, this stunning country house hotel provided the perfect backdrop for Hannah’s elegant English wedding vision to take shape.

Superstar Suppliers

Handpicked by Hannah herself, everyone involved in the shoot brought something unique to the table.
Having met model Jodi at a real wedding she shot in March (which was featured exclusively on Belle Bridal’s blog, Carly & Dan at the Woodlands Hotel), Hannah captured the effortless romance between Jodi and her real life partner Liam as if it were their actual special day.
Passion, love and natural happiness are evident in every single shot, testament to the unobtrusive nature of Hannah’s photography skills.
Vanessa at Wild Flowers provided utterly blooming bouquets, with pops of pale pink accentuating rustic greens, while accessories from Starbox Designs and Jo Bagshaw added optimum bridal bling.

Trad Attire

Tradition was the name of the game when it came to the bride and groom’s getups.

Gown – Romantica of Devon Pure Collection Style PB107, The Bridal Affair

Jodi donned a beautiful Romantica of Devon gown resplendent in ivory chiffon and lace (supplied by our guest list boutique The Bridal Affair), while Liam was a picture of gentlemanly perfection in a Marc Darcy three-piece from Master Debonair.

Suit – Marc Darcy Eton Three Piece, Master Debonair

Luxe details, fresh fashion, picturesque Yorkshire beauty – it was the perfect recipe for a sumptuous summertime styled shoot, captured magnificently by Hannah and her lovely lens.
