Modern Alice in Wonderland! Fairytale Wedding Inspiration at Marleybrook House…

Alice in Wonderland Wedding…

The concept of this fun bridal shoot was inspired by Lewis Carroll’s adventures of Alice in Wonderland, and was held in the gardens of Marleybrook House, a 17th century thatched cottage in Kent. The photoshoot takes us through the story of Alice; including down the rabbit hole, a mismatched botanical Mad Hatters Tea Party, the Queen’s Croquet Ground and the Secret Garden.

I just love the youthful, modern bridal styling and eclectic wedding decor ideas…

“Down the Rabbit Hole” is the latest in my Fairytale Bridal series, a concept born from a love-affair with fairytales. I adore the idea of turning these iconic characters into brides, and telling the story of their wedding.

I met my co-planner, Valentina, through our mutual love of everything whimsical. We wanted to create a modern interpretation of Alice – as if our childhood favourite had returned to Wonderland as a bride-to-be. We chose Chloe Lee as our photographer, as her fun, colourful style and great eye for detail was the perfect fit.

We couldn’t have asked for a better setting than Marleybrook House, with its cottage- like quirks, fully working vintage funfair, and exquisite gardens.

The girls behind the event, Alex Cvijovic who runs The Vintage Parade a unique event company and Helen Ruff editor of Margot’s Wedding magazine, are experts in the wedding industry.

Alex said “We wanted to inspire bridal styling outside of tradition and show our customers that they don’t have to follow convention to rock a wedding”. As you can see the models were out and about at a variety of locations in the city, who would know this was shot in one city.

The idea for this styled shoot was based around the Danish concept of HYGGE (pronounced hoo-guh).

When I was planning the details my aim was for whoever looked at the photographs to get an overwhelming sense of contentment and coziness. You know those “ahhh” moments when you have a sip of hot chocolate, put on a new pair of warm woolly socks, wrap yourself up tightly in a knitted nanny blanket or receive cuddles and kisses from someone you truly love…yeah all those feels!

Hygge is very much about embracing simplicity and authenticity. Ashridge Barn has been restored so beautifully with lots of wonderful original features being left exposed. The rustic decor and mixture of textures throughout the room add to its charm and worked so well with the shoots theme.

For the colour scheme I chose to use soft greys and pale pinks, which gave a lovely modern and contemporary feel as well as being feminine and
