Today I have the pleasure of unveiling the photo shoot I styled for The Millbrook Estate, in collaboration with Lucy Shergold Photography. As I said in yesterdays post this all came about when we met the lovely Kate and Bob Boothby, who own Millbrook and decided to create a shoot that showed off their beautiful and quirky grounds…and so Bob came up with the Mad Hatter’s theme, as it meant we could incorporate some of the estate’s more unusual features – and have some fun! You can see the inspiration board here


A great excuse to meet and work with some very talented local suppliers; Lucy and I were introduced by the Boothby’s to the lovely Leisa of Devon Catering, who supplied the pretty (and very tasty) cupcakes and we also took the opportunity to invite Sarah Bayley of Two Green Monkeys, who came on board to show off some of her gorgeous crafts, as well as uber talented florist Allene Daly and the wonderful hair stylist Claire Mathers of Creative Wedding Hair, both of whom I’ve booked for my own wedding!

We decided that this shoot should be about how couples can best use the venue for their wedding day, the look needed to be inspirational yet attainable…that was our priority and so we chose not to borrow any wedding gowns or jewellery – instead our aim was to show off how to use the space, inspired by the surroundings…

Some months ago, photographer Lucy Shergold and I were invited to take a look around a small and intimate North Devon wedding venue, The Millbrook Estate. Owners Kate and Bob Boothby have worked tirelessly over the last few years to create a relaxing haven in Devon and following our introductions to each other, an idea was born to collaborate on a photo shoot that showed off the quirkiness of the unique and beautiful Millbrook grounds.

Here’s the inspiration board I created for our Mad Hatter shoot…

I got to work with some amazing suppliers and will be showing the results on the blog tomorrow. Be sure to drop by to check out the results!

With Love, Boho Bride xx
