Natalie and Maxx acted as models for a Snow White and dark fairytale themed wedding shoot. What started as just a pretend handfasting ceremony ended up being really moving and emotional for the couple, so they decided to actually make the commitment for real!

Beautiful actual handfasting took place, and it was really special and very intimate, no planning just a big fat ‘Let’s do this!’ After this, the whole shoot took on a party feel a proper celebration of these amazing people – It was like it was meant to be with every aspect of the styling suiting them perfectly.

Natalie’s stunning outfit and head wear were made for her by Debi at Powdered and Waisted. The corset and ruffles were the perfect style of dress for the theme. Her boots were by House of Elliot. For the bride’s bouquet and floral arrangements, Charlotte opted to use trailing ivy and apples, rather than any florals. The groom was wearing a simpler look with brown pants, a white shirt, a whimsy bow tie and a boutonniere.

The green, red and earthy colors were then reflected in the grazing cake table created by Graze with Me as well as the stationery and extra table decor.
