An Essex Wedding - November/December 2023 (Issue 113)

the Pussycat Barnfields was the destination of choice for this whimsy, woodland shoot Images courtesy of Laura Beresford Photography Shoot coordinators Marina Moore and Victoria Taylor took inspiration from the classic poem The Owl and the Pussycat’ for this whimsical woodland bridal shoot. Every detail from the picnic platter, the copper and wood signage, bamboo furniture, and the luxury Pampas archway was carefully thought out. Marina adds, “Our magical aisle was delicately lit, showing potential couples the possibilities in this new outdoor venue, Barnfields. The colour palette was rustic and natural with hints of gold, black and copper, mirrored in the groom’s suit and our bride’s alternative gold dress. The cake and stationery picked up hints of the theme with feather detail, which looked so pretty.” It’s safe to say, the show-stopping image of this shoot was the rowing boat filled with flowers by Charmaine.
