Be inspired by the romance of Jane Austen and tell your very own love story with country florals, antique china and, of course, an Elizabeth Bennet-worthy dress...
Lose yourself in this modern reimagining of the Jane Austen era. Shooting exclusively on real film, fine art film photographers Taylor & Porter Photographs have captured the romance and elegance of the Regency period.
At the forefront of these breathtaking images is 'Lizzy', bridal designer Annalise Harvey's one-off creation. The award-winning couturier was commissioned to create a wedding dress by the organisers of the Jane Austen Festival to help celebrate the bicentenary of the publication of 'Pride and Prejudice'. A reflection of all that she finds inspiring in 19th century style, Annalise has designed 'Lizzy' with a modern Elizabeth Bennet in mind, blending layers of delicate silk, dainty floral detailing and an empire line cut, which echoes the era perfectly. The dress is accessorised with a bespoke lace headpiece created by Holly Young in collaboration with Annalise, heirloom coral jewellery, fresh, pretty make-up and a modern, flowing take on a 19th century hairstyle.
Idyllic wedding venue Nancarrow Organic Farm makes the dreamiest of backdrops. Owned and run by the same family since 1805, the grade II listed farmhouse nestles amidst a walled garden and grazed pastures slipping down into a wooded valley below. The family's collection of antique table linen and furniture, blue and white porcelain, cut glass and silverware creates a table fit for a modern-day Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy, while the botanical inspired letter pressed stationery and arrangements of home-grown English roses, dahlias and Cornish wild flowers complete the fresh-from-a-romantic-novel mood.
