Game of Thrones – Styled Wedding Shoot at Berwick Lodge in Bristol – Sansa Stark

Floral images for site decor

With Game of Thrones new season coming to a close what better theme for a styled bridal shoot at the stunning Berwick Lodge.

Built in 1890 the wedding venue has a quirky but elegant feel, lending itself to classical weddings through to more offbeat brides.

  Vast gardens and woodlands allow creativity and ideas to flow and a few ornate garden structures add to its beauty.

I didn’t realize until meeting our model Lili in person just how much of a lookalike she is to the inspiration of the shoot  Sansa Stark.

Makeup and hair were kept very simple and between Jo ( Berwick Lodge), Lili and myself we were quite proud of the outcome.

A home made head-piece of twisted hazel, sprayed gold and sprinkled with beads crowned the first outfit.

Both dresses were made and designed by  Lisa Keating.

The first, a bead encrusted corset in pale gold was laced up with ribbon.

Paired with a long net skirt the billowing layers created a soft whimsical look.

The outfit was topped off with a beaded lace cape giving a regal feel to both looks.

The second dress, a similar soft gold colour with beaded detail overlaid a silk underlay and long train.

A stunning wedding bouquet with contrasting red and purple flowers added a little colour to the photographs.

Expertly designed by florist, Lisa Elliot who constructed the second headpiece while also decorating the garden swing.

The styled table consisted of ornaments from Berwick Lodge along with a few home sourced props including a 17th Century sword!

Once the Games of Thrones theme was choosen opportunities and ideas were a plenty.

The option of a white horse came up so I jumped at that.

He was the perfect prop, even though they do say you should never work with children and animals I do like to push myself.

So taking much care with the silk and lace dresses,  Lili managed to pose amazingly with bare feet and a few horse nibbles.

The shoot was really relaxed and we explored the gardens trying out as many ideas as we could.

Even getting the chance to take a couple of shots with my Lensbaby and crystals to capture a more experiment look.
