If these photos don’t put a big fat smile on your face then we may need to have a talk. Because we are loving this brightly styled shoot by photographer Courtney Horwood and Casey from The Heirloom.

Using a collection of cleverly coordinated props, Courtney and Casey turned Old Forest School into something so cheerful. Casey says “the woodland setting is simple and unfussy – but mixed with fresh, bright and bold colours that ‘pop’, this rustic backdrop that is Old Forest School transforms into something extra special”. By using vibrant, chevron prints within the table-scape and the dessert display, this team of creatives were able to provide a beautiful contrast to the stark, white table work.

Jess from Honeysuckle Rose was also there to create beautiful bouquets to compliment the bright table settings and fun-loving theme of this shoot. Jess says, “Ben and Nicola were such a fun couple, I wanted the flowers to reflect their joyful love for each other – vibrant happy colours, roses, jasmine, freesia and balmy perfumed herbs were the perfect combination.”

Dressed by Sally Eagle Bridal and Hazels House and with makeup by Lilybeth, bride Nicola looked georgeous against the vivid fuschia, orange, yellow and teal tones -a quirky cast of colours guaranteed to breath life into any room.
