An Autumn Themed Styled Wedding Photography Shoot with Chantelle and Billy at Knole Park

On a cold and wet November day around 20 other photographers headed over to Knole Park for a beautiful styled shoot.


Myself and the incredibly talented Frances Sales rounded together some of our favourite wedding suppliers to collaborate in an autumnal themed shoot. We were lucky enough to have a real couple on board, Chantelle and Billy who suited our theme perfectly. We especially loved Billy's beard, and how handsome he looked in the tweed suit from Frasers. It goes without saying that Chantelle is a stunner, especially in that Kate Beaumont dress (even if she did have to get changed in a public toilet). These two had so much cemistry and were naturals in front of the cameras! 

On the morning of the shoot it rained more than we had seen all year. It wasn't quite the crisp autumn day we had expected but everyone worked so well together, without a grumble to produce some wonderful work.

The following images were all taken at Knole Park, staring work from the following suppliers:
Hair & makeup: Gina at Bambi Salons - http://www.bambi-salons.co.uk/
Flowers: Kim at Floral Elements - http://www.floral-elements.co.uk/
Dresses: Kate Beaumont - http://kate-beaumont.co.uk/
Cheese ‘cake’: http://www.greys-cheese.co.uk/
Suppliers, if you are reading this thank you so much for your contribution in putting together this fantastic work. I couldn't recommend you all enough!


The morning began with Chantelle and Billy being beautified, lots of standing under umbrellas and some some set up shots. 
Chantelle brought these beautiful shoes seen above to go with the dress... but let's be honest, she was in wellies most of the day!


While we were shooting, our incredible florist Kim had set up this gorgeous picnic table, assembled from vintage crates that Frances found at a car boot.
Kim also decorated the fantastic 'cake' of cheese from Greys Cheese. It looked scrumptious with all that texture!



We didn't have a lot of light on a short Autumn day but before we packed away we wrapped grabbed a lovely warm blanket to wrap Chantelle in, and took a few final shots. I love the colour, along side that suit.
