At a time when weddings are small and togetherness is so precious, English wedding photographer JADE OSBORNE worked with planner THE STARS INSIDE to create this chic, pared-back inspiration for couples looking to celebrate simply, in their own way. She tells us, "We wanted to highlight just how special and luxurious an elopement celebration can feel even with minimal decor, particularly when the details and location are chosen in an intentional, meaningful way. For the outfits, we were inspired by playful trends à la Coco Chanel, for the modern bride wanting to be both elegant and comfortable at the same time. We chose a monochromatic palette with crisp white, black, and gold detailing - we wanted it to feel timeless, but a little bit bold too! We experimented with block colours, juxtaposing contemporary, asymmetric florals with the classic architecture of an early 18th-century country mansion in the glorious English countryside. Our focus was on the moments and on the emotions – no crowds, no frills, just love"
Captured at HAWKSTONE HALL - a luxury country manor home in Shropshire, it features a simple white bouquet of roses from BOTANICS FLORIST and a modern monochrome stationery suite by DWYNWEN CREATIVE. Stunning gowns from HALFPENNY LONDON and ALENA LEENA BRIDAL were the perfect visions of romance for a modern bridal look.
