Chase Vodka Summer Cocktails by Wedding Yurts

One of the most popular parts of our service at Wedding Yurts is most definitely our Yurt Bar – this amazing space is always packed out at our weddings and at this time of year, our signature cocktails are an absolute must.

We just love creating new cocktails, especially from local and seasonal produce. Of course, because we spend the summer months travelling around the UK hosting yurt weddings, our version of ‘local’ changes on a very regular basis!

The idea behind the shoot came about when Lindsay (the stylist) and I were exchanging some ideas about a collaboration in the summer. She’d been wanting to do some styling using fresh fruit and veg and wild flowers and so I got thinking.

The more we talked, the more our ideas took shape and along came the Great British Summer theme. We wanted to incorporate everything typically British about the summertime – fresh British strawberries, hay bails, deck chairs, pimms – all with a vintage ‘rule Britannia’ glamour twist.

I bought the most beautiful 100 year old British flag – and the results speak for themselves.

This shoot was my absolutely favourite, and so much fun to shoot! Blonde bombshell models, a vintage car, and one of the settings was a strawberry field. So dreamy –
