Take a stunning dress styled to utter perfection and shoot it in beautiful barn for a beauty editorial replete with modern romance. Here, the simple yet striking venue allows the bridal style to fully stand out while framing it with fairy lights and floor-to-ceiling windows that hint at the rural landscapes beyond. The result? A dazzling bride and a glimpse into the magic of an Upton Barn & Walled Garden wedding.

Beginning in The Paddock - a gorgeous, dedicated space for the pre-wedding preparations - and the model lavishes in the VIP treatment from the shoot's expert hair and beauty artists. A natural, yet glamorous look uses neutral make-up tones with soft shades of peach and pink to create a fresh-faced bridal beauty. The hair style moves from elegant loose waves with a boho floral headband to a low bun updo with long loose strands embellished with pearl and floral headpins, with eye-catching floral earrings to match.

The dresses are both feminine and fashion-forward. The first, an off-the-shoulder sweetheart bodice with floral appliques and a low, tie-up back epitomises today's seductive skin-baring style; while the second on-trend dress boasts a beautiful open back, deep plunging neckline and frothy, dance-ready skirt complete with a hint of sparkle and floral detailing.

A sweeping, floor-length veil lends a dose of high drama alongside the overhead chandeliers as the bride swishes and sways across the barn floor in a vision of modern romance.
