Balbirnie Styled Shoot

by Lifetime Photography

at Balbirnie House Hotel


Inspired to showcase three different styles of wedding look within the one venue, this creative team balanced inside and outside locations perfectly. We love the light and the energy of this shoot. Pretty a-plenty…

Tell us about the inspiration behind the shoot?
Using both interior and exterior locations, the shoot was designed to capture three main styles: vintage, classic and bohemian, showcasing the unique style each supplier had to offer.
Keeping these three styles in mind, we had to consider how to use the venue effectively to convey these clearly.
And how did you go about styling it?
For the classic bridal look we decided that the best locations for these photographs was using the newly furnished interior spaces in the hotel. The vintage and bohemian styles, we felt, were better suited to the beautiful grounds using spots previously unvisited.
It was with the intention that the images from the shoot would be used to capture the imagination of prospective couple’s looking for their perfect wedding venue and seeing Balbirnie in a way that they had possibly not previously seen it.
Although all suppliers had worked at Balbirnie before, we were encouraged to try something a little different to capture photographs that broke the normal stereotypical ‘Country House Wedding Venue’.
From location to choice of outfit, floral arrangements to make up and hair – all of this was considered when trying to achieve beautiful images for the three different styles.
