Rustic Farm Shoot – Rachel Lilly Photography

I do love a styled shoot, and when I stumbled across this beauty on Facebook, I just knew I wanted to feature it on Dotty Vintage Weddings.

Rachel Lilly, the photographer on the shoot, launched herself into the wedding industry a couple of years ago, and was passionate about organising a styled shoot, full of beautiful rustic details and charm. The couple featured in the shoot were some of Rachel’s first clients, as opposed to professional models, and I think they have a natural connection that is just gorgeous.

The shoot brought together a fabulous collaboration of wedding suppliers in May, who worked on location at the farm that belongs to Rachel’s grandparents.

Rachel explains, “I’ve grown up with the farm being a big part of my life, and as my interest in photography grew and grew, so did my realisations of how beautifully rustic and photogenic the place was. My camera and I know all of it’s nooks and crannies well now, so to me, it made perfect sense to use it for this shoot.”

Rachel continues, “We think it worked really nicely. There’s a real charm to the wonky greenhouses and the disheveled Arcon Prefab that my Granddad purchased after the war to house his chickens in!”

The little wooden trinkets and accessories, along with the amazing lace chair covers come from Wedding Creations. Our Editor has already been eyeing up goodies for her wedding in September!

I was very excited to see the work of the amazing Jenny Fleur, who has just written the latest Expert Column in the current issue of Dotty Magazine. I’m a big fan of a rustic buttonhole for the groom and his menfolk, and this one is no exception.
