If you're dreaming of a colourful summer wedding then this Mediterranean inspired shoot at the beautiful Almonry Barn in Somerset is full of ideas for a summer wedding! Last summer I organised a bridal shoot with a team of fabulous wedding suppliers to bring you this gorgeous Meditteranean style wedding inspiration, featuring a beautiful silk wedding dress with lace detail by Ailsa Munro and a colourful citrus-infused colour palette of yellows, orange and pink tones and gold / gold leaf details.

DRESS

The beautiful silk design dress with lace detail (“Maymie”) is by award-winning South West dressmaker, Ailsa Munro. Ailsa's fine art wedding dress designs are absolutely stunning and her bespoke collection of dresses are perfect for brides looking for a vintage, personal style.

Maymie is a traditional silk crepe wedding dress with delicate white lace, with hand pieced lace sleeves that delicately cover the shoulders and a chiffon covered bodice which delicately integrates the lace detail.

HAIR, MAKEUP & ACCESSORIES


Louise Alway and Laura Le Page created a beautiful and natural look with hair and makeup for model Sarah, who wore gold accessories by Victoria Fergusson Accessories and rose-pink shoes with gold detail by Emmy London.
