Here, the lovingly restored 18th century round house makes the dream canvas for an ethereal wedding scene styled with the lightest hues and fresh, contemporary accents.

'I was drawn to the concept of honesty in a photo shoot with hints of reflective surfaces and accents of clear acrylic, vintage crystal coupes and contemporary styling in a frosted, bleached, dreamy vibe, whilst keeping it super romantic,' explains Phoebe Stanaway of Elisabeth Shell Events who styled the shoot.

'I knew I wanted to feature shimmery lunaria and pearlescent capiz shells as key elements to tie into the concept, and a muted colour palette with lots of fresh white linen and cotton.'

The luminescent qualities of the lunaria and capiz shells work beautifully against the crisp whites of the tablescape and the natural textures of the floral arrangements. From the candlesticks and tableware to the delicate, Devon-crafted jewels and the intricate geode cake, metallic accents catch the light throughout, while the crystal glassware and clear acrylics enhance the luxe, modern aesthetic.

In perfect harmony with the light, ethereal quality of the shoot, the bride dazzles in delicate lace, flowing tulle and fashion-forward separates, her hair relaxed and natural.

'Brickhouse Vineyard is so beautiful and has such a gorgeous feel of light and space,' says Phoebe. 'I wanted to capture an airiness which is infused with the warmth and hospitality of the venue, whilst portraying a down-to-earth, happy bride at understated moments that might be captured throughout a wedding day, whether it's buckling a shoe, eating canapés or laughing with her friends.'
