Ian Stuart Wedding Dresses, New Collection Shoot

It was wonderful to be asked to photograph some of our favourite designer wedding dresses this past Autumn, we've been lucky to photograph real brides in many of Ian Stuart wedding dresses over the years and without doubt they are some of the most stunning wedding gowns from a UK bridal designer.

Many brides have always imagined walking down the aisle in a large white wedding dress but it's fun to see that other less traditional colours can work and be just as beautiful. The wedding dresses are all part of the new Ian Stuart wedding dresses 2013 Supernova collection and we were amongst the first to see them. The dresses featured as part of the shoot were Carmen, Vanity Fair, Kahlua, Monsoon and Orange Blossom.

The concept was include a little Autumnal colour as well as show off the designer dresses against a stunning backdrop, a really cool wedding venue right on the Dorset coast called Pennsylvania Castle. Huge thanks for Tracy at Wedding Time Bridal Saloon in Dorchester supplied the dresses (if you are in the search for your dream wedding dress you must visit Wedding Time in Dorchester) who trusted us with the dresses and looked after all the models for the day.

Thanks goes as well to Angela of Angela's Floral Design for creating the bouquets as well as being mum to Chole, one of the models for the day along with Nicole (one of our past wedding clients!) and Jo of Penn Castle. Hair design by Helen of Salon on the Square in Beaminster did an amazing job and our own Teri was the professional make-up artist for the day (as well as creating many of the images below!).

East Close Hotel Wedding in the New Forest, Akiko and Keith

There are so many weddings we need to get onto the blog (our facebook page seems to have been updated more often recently but the blog needs some love as well!)

We love all kinds of weddings (which is a good thing really!) and love it when couples put their own personal touches to their day. Akiko and Keith's Autumn wedding at the East Close Hotel in the beautiful New Forest was one which included many well thought out details that were very meaningful and personal to them and their families.

One of the personal touches was Akiko's traditional Japanese wedding Kimono, so much colour and fun to photograph, made all the more special because of her families connection as traditional dress makers in Japan. Special attention must be paid to Keith's waistcoat, the material for it's construction was his grandfathers Kimono, so very cool and a wonderful way to not only personalise wedding details but to include memories of loved ones and create new memories.

The East Close Hotel on the outskirts of the beautiful New Forest and we have had the pleasure of photographing there many times. Such a wonderful venue with elegant high ceiling ceremony room and beautiful natural light from the doors leading out to the patio area. We always love to use environment for wedding photography and the venue is almost another guest at the wedding and certainly will form part of the memories of the day. If you do get chance to visit the East Close Hotel do look out to the gardens and check out the largest copper beach tree in the New Forest, very beautiful.

Thank you Akiko and Keith for inviting Teri and I to be part of your wedding day, we felt honoured to be part of such a special day and even though neither Teri nor I speak Japanese it was obvious how much love there is for the both of you, many congratulations! :)
