A gloriously Gothic Wedding shoot at Ettington Park

Posted on February 25th 2016

So way back January, just after the New Year on the very first day back at work (and probably not quite ready for work) I got together with some infinitely amazingly talented people to complete a bridal shoot at the awe inspiring Ettington Park Hotel.

I was approached by Charlotte from Vintage Chic Wedding Fairs to complete a cake for the shoot which was to have a gothic bride/Modern Miss Havisham theme to suit the very beautiful surroundings.

So we had an amazing day of beautifying, laughing, dodging the rain and taking loads of photo's that were then featured on the top award winning wedding blog Mrs&MrsPandP . Take a look at all the very emotive and somewhat eerie venue, amazingly lush florals, just beautiful styling with some amazing ideas and lovely props, a truly perfect gown for the occasion, exquisite hair and makeup (expect nothing else from Sarah Russell) and of course some very funny, very lovely, very gorgeous people.

Following few official photo's by Sarah from Nellie Photography.

Before the shoot itself I drew up a moodboard and sketch for Charlotte to OK of the cake which incidentally was one of the largest I have completed to date (as you can see the design changed ever so slightly the day before). The cake was to include antlers, sugar flowers, edible silver leaf, vintage fabric and cobwebs.

But enough from me. Here are the gorgeous photo's of the cake by Sarah at Nellie Photography for this gorgeously atmospheric styled shoot.

I also got a bit snap happy behind the scenes with my own camera (as usual) and here are my little sneaky pics of the day.

So that was a bit of wedding porn but now for the important bit - the suppliers.

It's been a busy old year here at The Sugared Rose HQ with some ups and plenty of downs. But I wanted to end the year with some positive loveliness and who doesn't love a touch of Christmas? So I thought I share a few photos from a very christmassey shoot we took part in for Elens Wedding Photography and Thomasina Brides.

2017 so far in pictures

Posted on August 24th 2017

I had a little look around the site today and was very ashamed to see that I had not completed a blog post since April! All these promises of regular posts and updates and I have yet again failed and let life get in the way (oops!). So I thought as I am still in the midst of a very hectic season and spending a hour or so on every wedding to post is not on the cards right now (unfortunately), I would just post a quick photo filled run down of 2017 so far.
