From the excitement of a first date to the promise of forever, Taylor Swift has written about it all, and Sophie of Photos from Sophie was in synch with Taylor all along the way creating this shoot.
The team wanted to base this shoot on young love and the songs that represent it best. The fantasies of finding real love, and what it would be like. Sophie thought of every detail — like choosing specific poses to represent lyrics or recall iconic music videos and transitioning the dress colors to represent the ever-changing emotions of love. The bride wore pastel green to represent a calm love that comes with settling down into forever. The pink dress is all about vibrancy, fun, and the thrill of the early stages of falling in love! It’s also similar to the dress worn in the “ME!” music video when Taylor is sitting on the rooftop. Sophie chose the blue dress at sunset to represent the end of the story — perhaps even the sad melancholy that comes with love and certainly a color that Taylor references often.
The shoot took place at Marleybrook House in Kent, a country farmhouse venue with fairytale charm; acres of peaceful woodland, pathways leading to pretty walled gardens, and a vibrant vintage fairground. Basically, the perfect setting for a wedding inspired by Taylor Swift! In between the gauzy pastels and fairytale-like setting, Orchard Blooms Floral Design took the theme and ran with it. Bunches of colorful blooms elevated the sweetness of the day. The cake display took hints from Taylor’s song, “Wonderland,” with its colorful teacups and dreamy cotton-candy vibes.
