The weather can be unpredictable and make it difficult for photographers to capture gorgeous images. Luckily for bridal boutique manager Camilla Britten and her colleagues, the weather cleared up just in time to capture this gorgeous image. Camilla explained to us what inspired them: “With four incredible dresses designed by Berta Privée and Instagram influencer Ella Ravenscroft as our model, we knew this shoot would be one to remember. We decided to stick with the popular geometric trend to create a modern and luxurious feel. We only had two hours of dry weather, and the photographer, Jeff Langhorne, did an amazing job of getting all the shots we needed in such a short time scale.”

Here at Your Surrey Wedding, we love seeing local suppliers working together to create showstopping images. Douglas McNeil, the events manager at Guildford Manor told us how this image came to be: “Guildford Manor is a family-run wedding venue set within nine acres of beautiful countryside in the South Downs. The hotel recently underwent a refurbishment and now boasts more than 50 comfortable rooms, a gym, a swimming pool, a spa and much more. We organised the shoot to capture extraordinary shots of the property and to highlight local suppliers' work. From hair and make-up to venue styling, the team had everything covered. Our resident peacock, Percy, also got in on the fun with a gracious cameo in front of the camera. It was a great day and we're really pleased with how the photos turned out.”
