These beautiful images were conceived and styled by wedding photographer Masha Unwerth, whose goal was to design an aesthetically beautiful day about two people, through playful use of contrasting textures and incorporation of stylish modern wedding elements.

There images are made all the more beautiful by inclusion of the short and sassy puff sleeve gown by our directory member, the super talented Kate Edmondson Bridal Couture, whose website I recommended you bookmark and Instagram account I recommend you follow instantly.

“The key inspiration for this shoot is a beautiful Grade II listed country house in Northiam. Brickwall House is set amongst a stunning historic garden, within a 60-acre estate in East Sussex.”“The style and detailed ornamentation of this Jacobean Manor House became the base for the colour palette of black, white, green, gold and neutral.”

“The lovely models were Jessica and Damon, as a modern bride who is keen to personalise her wedding, one way to do it is to wear something daring and contemporary.”
