I arrived an hour before the photoshoot to scout environments for the “first look”.
I was allowed to open two beautiful front doors and voilá the park opened up at the back of the castle.
When I arrived to Sophie and the bridesmaids, she told me that she designed the dress herself in collaboration with Ivory&Grace in London.
She also bought a second dress for the party, I tok a few photos in the beautiful backlight from a window.
The next thing that caught my eye were her shoes, I placed them in a window with the wedding venue in the background.
I’m always looking for light, want to create atmospheric images that tell a story.
When we spoke on the phone the week before I said “I think of Gatsby, elegant and timeless” Sophie replied “Spot on”.
John’s father had bought cigars for the photoshoot, we had decided it would be a fun prop.
