Brilliant West-Midlands-based photographer Jo Ager from Iris & Ivy Photography who is known for her relaxed, natural photography and her intuitive use of light was behind the concept for this beautiful country house wedding shoot, working with many of the industry's best professionals.
Here is what Jo had to say: “My idea for this styled shoot concept was based around a modern luxe style that meets fine art for a truly contemporary couple. We kept it very simple and sleek with added elements of romance and elegance. There was such a lovely calm atmosphere on this shoot, which gave me a quiet confidence and I think it brought out the best in everyone."
To define the style Etiquette Event Styling brought this vision to life by touching on timeless florals using gorgeous green foliage and ivories but with a twist that oozes modern chic. The table was layered with textiles that draped down one of the tables to give a fine art luxury feel. Using gold against a neutral palette of grey worked as a sophisticated colour pop lining all the plates, glassware and cutlery. The lit candles finished the look adding an air of romance. From the modern elegant style of the gown and tux to the sleek hair and makeup, the simplicity of the stationery and the cake… All these elements helped create this timeless look ending with an ever-so-popular Champagne tower.”
This special photoshoot was held at the beautiful Glewstone Court Country House, nestled deep in the Herefordshire countryside and set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, overlooking the Brecon Beacons. Glewstone makes the perfect Country House wedding venue and a great seeting for a photoshoot! The Grade II listed Manor House still retains many of its Georgian and Regency features dating back to the 19th century, including the stunning spiral staircase rising from the entrance hall to a magnificent landing. The team there were great to work with – it's a true family-run business.
