The Lake District is famous for its scenery, welcoming locals and popping the question. To celebrate its beauty, a groupof suppliers teamed up to create this shoot. Planner, stylist and venue wedding manager Annabel tells us more: "The Barn in the Fells has recently opened and already has bookings from couples who have got engaged on the surrounding fell tops! This family-owned farm has moved the sheep out and has been busy creating a spacefor some glorious, rural events. We wanted to highlight that a wedding can be planet-friendly with hiring not buying, local not shipped in, seasonal and natural products. Every choice we make when creating a wedding should be put through a green filter. Can our choices be better for the planet? I believe they always can, from simple elements like recycled paper to hiring décor instead of buying it.
"This shoot was styled to showcase the Lakeland slate that covers the barn.The pastels blend well while enhancing the eye-catching table settings, massive beams and wonderful lighting. The models showcased romance and flirty humour, even getting some attention from a newborn lamb! Szintia and Chris took to their first modelling experience with ease, bringing love and laughter to the day. The outfits from Carol's Bridal Boutique were chosen to stand out against the strong lines of the barn and surrounding fells. For this shoot, we all wanted to highlight this stunning space but also show what can be done with sustainability in mind and without compromising the design."
