Into The Woods : A Romantic Yorkshire Woodland wedding shoot at Escrick Park

 This dreamy woodland-inspired wedding shoot captured perfectly by Lianne Gray, portrayed beautifully how the intimacy of a small wedding can be achieved in the most romantic of settings.  The venue was the fabulous Escrick Park Estate in York; set in an ancient oak clearing, this outdoor open space provides rustic benching with an archway crafted from dried oak branches to create a special space for your 'I do's'.

Lianne had a vision of capturing the shoot in the golden hour - just as the sun was fading - which provided the most beautiful lighting for the shoot.

To suit the natural surroundings the team used rich red tones shot through with gold to create drama & to tie in with the Shakesperian element the shoot had.

 I adored creating the wedding calligraphy for this shoot; Sally Jane Calligraphy supplied the hanging table/seating plan in the picture above, a table runner - complete with Sonnet 18 handlettered on, place cards, table name & menu's - all with a nod towards the Shakespeare theme.

There was a line up of truly fabulous Yorkshire wedding suppliers & we had such a lovely afternoon/evening pulling this shoot together. The images are beautiful & it was great to seeing it featured in You & Your Wedding magazine earlier this year.
