When we first set eyes on ‘The Red Wedding Dress’ otherwise known as Florette from White One by St Patrick, we fell head over heels … hard! This dress is as incredible in white as it is in red, but there is something about the punch that this dress packs in this vibrant red that is guaranteed to have heads turning for all the right reasons.

So when we had the opportunity to collaborate with some other local suppliers on a photoshoot for an alternative wedding, to say we jumped at the chance would be an understatement! Fast forward through a few weeks of planning and we found ourselves on location with some fabulously talented wedding industry professionals, not to mention the incredibly beautiful models for what has resulted in the breathtaking photographs below.

The location for the photoshoot was Cleeve Hill near Cheltenham. Cleeve Hill is the highest point in Gloucestershire and offers breathtaking views that extend to the Malvern Hills, and on a clear day even further to the Black Mountains of Wales. We have to say that we are so pleased with the way the photos have turned out, for an alternative wedding look they are absolutely on point.

Of course, we could not blog about this shoot without crediting the amazing talent involved…
