A Romantic Wedding Wonderland at Dunsley Hall, Whitby…
Photography By Georgina Harrison.
Good Morning to our lovely readers, we hope you all had an amazing week so far and of course, Valentines. Whilst we may have drank lots of (a little too much) vino and over indulged on the choccies, we are still wishing we could do it all over again.
To cure the Valentines blues we have a real treat for you on the blog today, and it comes in the form of a gorgeous styled shoot that took place at Dunsley Hall, a picturesque country house that is nestled on the North Yorkshire Coast, near Whitby.
Our extremely talented approved supplier, Pamella Dunn very kindly shared with us this dreamy shoot and we are crushing over just about everything.
So, without further ado, here is Pamella giving us all the behind the scenes details of the ever so pretty goings on…
“Can you image my delight when approached by the talented photographer Georgina Harrison as she shared her ideas for a very special fine art shoot in the beautiful North Yorkshire coastal town of Whitby? I adore the seaside, long walks along the shore line breathing in the sea air, so from the beginning I knew this project was going to be a personal investment too.
The location and charming Victorian wedding venue on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park was just waiting to be rediscovered. New owners are restoring the stunning manor house, maintaining the stylish essence of a bygone era with luxurious decor, furnishings and fabrics. The spectacular setting has a seductive charm which I found impossible to resist.
The grounds take in breathtaking views, manicured lawns, graceful eucalyptus trees sharing pretty meadows with fruit trees and wild flowers; I was lost in styling heaven. The natural flow and abundance of original wrought iron fencing, gates, stone work and meandering paths stole my heart and I will forever have a fondness for this special place.
Reflecting the beauty and peaceful calm of the surroundings the design was soft and sympathetic, using seasonal wedding flowers of fragrant white lilac, eucalyptus and peonies. The colour palette was cool and subtle with chalky whites, velvety muted greens, complemented by rich fabrics that billowed in the breeze. I wanted to create something achingly beautiful and truly authentic, a style that was thoughtful, and perfectly in tune with the romantic setting and venue.
I think by now you have guessed I loved everything about this collaboration, and I hope it illustrates that dreams really can come true in this idyllic North Yorkshire costal hamlet.”
The totally gorgeous dresses were provided by Diana at The Little Pearl Bridal Boutique – An award winning boutique, situated in the lovely historic market town of Pickering, North Yorkshire.
