Alternative wedding inspiration

Louise Rose Couture | A beautiful collection of alternative wedding dresses

I was thrilled when the wonderful Louise from Louise Rose Couture got in touch about photographing her new alternative wedding dress collection. Along with Rachel (our lovely model) and Paula (make-up and hair!), we braved the cold to create the below ♡ 

These dresses are absolutely beautiful and I would love to photograph one of my brides wearing one! Each dress is made lovingly by Louise herself and she sources all the material herself too. I love it when couples choose to focus on local smaller suppliers when planning their wedding. Plus, who could resist such a beautiful dress!? (Oooh I really want to photograph a wedding with a black wedding dress, can someone please make this happen? :D) 

We were really lucky to have permission to hold this shoot at Gilbert White's house in Hampshire. Gilbert White absolutely loved nature and his local countryside so this location was absolutely perfect and really suited the look of the dresses. Couples are able to get married at this gorgeous venue, either in the rustic barn or the intimate and historic house. I would love to photograph a wedding here  ♡
