Our favourite shoots most often involved nature and beautiful gardens and THE LOST GARDENS OF HELIGAN in Cornwall, UK make for one stunning backdrop. Lying undiscovered for years, the gardens have been lovingly restored to their former glory and in the future will play host to unique and beautiful weddings surrounded by nature. The very talented TAYLOR & PORTER took advantage of all the gorgeous greenery and styled the shoot using gowns from CLAIRE PETTIBONE‘s new Romantique collection – which with their gentle, flowing silhouettes worked perfectly with the organically grown seasonal florals by our favourite British florists THE GARDEN GATE FLOWER COMPANY. Antique jewellery from LITTLE JEMS were added for a touch of elegance. Louise from TAYLOR & PORTER said, “I wanted to capture the magic of wandering through such beautiful, peaceful gardens and stealing moments together surrounded by birdsong“. I think she’s done that to perfection and then some!
