Hamswell House

For this breathtaking editorial shoot, we drew inspiration from a quintessentially English country garden. Hamswell House, an incredible stately home wedding venue in the Bath countryside, was the perfect backdrop for our vision. The colour palette was a lively nod to spring - combining yellow, orange and peach tones with a vibrant pop of lilac.

All For Love London enhanced the existing wisteria growing up the house, creating an abundant, immersive archway at the entrance. Sally Bean designed two couture gowns for the editorial, which combined delicate, ethereal details with striking high-fashion drama.

We designed an elegant, colourful tablescape within the Hamswell House water garden, which offered panoramic views of the rolling Somerset countryside. Lilac table linen provided a playful pop of colour, whilst clear ghost chairs subtly reflected the shimmering water. Patterned tableware was topped with watercolour-adorned stationery, and delicate, hand-embroidered bows added a touch of femininity and luxury.

Overall, this shoot felt playful, heartfelt and nostalgic - I couldn't help but reminisce about my childhood spent growing up in the countryside and spending hours on end outdoors. The images represent everything we stand for at Rachel Dalton Weddings - combining unparalleled design with attentive details that will be sure to evoke meaningful memories.

bath, somerset
