Ice the Cake’s network focuses on bringing fabulous wedding suppliers together. So I was absolutely delighted to hear about this fantastic shoot organised by a member & showcasing so many others with such a sensational result. For today’s post I hand you over to Frank Millar…
Frank said: “I was so excited when Aria of Crystal Bouquets Boutique told me of this amazing location and idea, which would end up being a two day shoot.
Day one was Marie Antoinette’s world as seen through an artist’s eye and captured on camera.
Day two’s shoot was Mad Hatters Tea Party, as seen through the eyes of well mad people!
From a photographers perspective, I have never come across such a great venue for an indoor shoot. The colour splashed all over the house, from the floors to the ceiling and everything in-between, its a photographers paradise. Even outside is amazing!
Teamed up with the best top end suppliers made us create a shoot that can then be replicated for anyone booking the actual venue for a wedding or hen party. It really is a fantasy turned into reality.
The house and all the art in it was the original inspiration however the opulence of the era provided an elegant alternative for a wedding shoot drenched in the sugar and gold colours.
We wanted it to feel like we were part of those beautiful rich paintings of that era but more importantly to show brides to be that they can easily enjoy the very same surroundings captured in the shoot. Whether they book the venue for afternoon tea and bridal shopping just like the girls in the shoot or have their actual wedding there, they too can be part of this gorgeous fantasy world.”
