Country Diary

A Wedding Photo Shoot inspired by a book Edith Holden’s ‘The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady’. This shoot had to be natural, soft and as romantic as possible, but with a modern edge.

Country Diary

Jennifer Jane loves a wedding, she's a sucker for romance and that's why she loves her job as a wedding photographer.

This shoot was inspired by a book she read as a child Edith Holden’s ‘The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady’.

Jennifer Jane's vision for this shoot? It had to be natural, soft and as romantic as possible, but with a modern edge.

The incredible venue was Hillersdon House which was the perfect place, with its abundance of beautiful grounds, fields, kitchen gardens, lakes and flower beds as well as geese and swans and deer on cue.

The Grooms look was modern and laid back with jeans, white shirt, waistcoat, bow tie and braces, whilst the bride was elegantly traditional, with the soft lace reminiscent of the Edwardian era but brought up to date with a modern two-piece from Lovely Bridal in Honiton.

Laura Elisabeth Avery MUA kept the brides make up simple and natural but still bright. The Updo Girl swept the Brides hair up into a jazzy updo and then used a specially designed hairpiece by The Lucky Sixpence which included green leaves and small white flowers.
