An Ode To Autumn At Talhenbont Hall
A dream location, amazing suppliers and one of the sunniest November days EVER…our Autumn shoot at Talhenbont Hall was nothing less than perfection.
Our aim was to create a beautiful, natural shoot to showcase the hall and the talents of our amazing industry experts to the max. Our models were our very own Ella and Talhenbont owners Alicia and Paul’s gorgeous little girl Daisy. The girls hit it off instantly and their cute little bond shines through on every shot.
The stunning Essence of Australia and Morilee gowns along with the super-pretty flower girl dress were provided by the gorgeous girls at Bellissima Brides in Brimstage.
Working with the highly-acclaimed Richard Milnes Photography, the stunning images really do capture the day which was an absolute joy from start to finish – how many shoots end with everyone sat round the table in front of a toasty Arga eating homemade chicken soup and piles of cake! When can we come again guys….
If you haven’t heard about this slice of Welsh heaven yet – why not! A relative newcomer to the wedding world, this stunning venue hosted its first wedding in 2018 and owners Paul and Alicia have poured tonnes of passion, energy and hard-graft into creating a truly magical location for your big day.
Alongside the magnificent hall and awe-inspiring gardens, this year the pair have transformed the former coach house into a stunning celebration space which is licensed for ceremonies and perfect for parties.
With stunning photo opportunities at every turn and its very own microclimate (we actually had breakfast on the terrace in November!) it has to be one of the most magical places to say ‘I DO’ in the region.
Award Winning ‘Glam-Squad’
When the team from locally based hair and beauty experts Moncrieffe arrived bright and early and armed with more kit than you could shake a stick at – we knew we were in safe hands.
The two marvellous Meinir’s created two stunning looks across the day, with an elegant up-do for Ella and beautiful soft curls and messy braid for Daisy along with stunning make-up to enhance the overall theme.
The talented team were a joy to work with – on hand throughout the day to tease and top-up where necessary keeping our gorgeous girls looking perfect throughout.
Styled To Perfection
How lucky were we that one of the most talented florists and styling guru’s in the North was actually having a little half term break at the Hall!
Having helped the team dress the venue for a recent open day, Anna-Liisa from the renowned Manchester based Springbank was our unofficial stylist for the day! And what a result.
In between whipping up show-stopping autumn inspired bouquets and dressing outdoor ceremony areas, she was behind camera with Richard, checking the shots and adding extra blooms, floral touches and accessories so each shot was styled to perfection.
It’s All About The Images
Richard Milnes was absolutely the right photographer for this shoot. Supremely creative and with an eye for that perfect quirky background or un-posed natural ‘moment’, Richard not only put our girls at total ease on the day he really drove the shoot creatively from start to finish.
A total professional who obviously loves what he does, he really helped make the day a total pleasure and we think this shines through the images.
