Today I am thrilled to share the exquisite Shakespeare in Love Bridal Gown Collection from Chanticleer Brides.
The collection was shot on location at Woodchester Mansion, an 18th centrury Gothic masterpiece that was abandoned mid construction in 1873.
Hidden in a secluded Cotswold valley, it is untouched by time and the modern world, and was the perfect setting for the shot.
Images were captured by Tasha at Ikonworks Photography.
Chanticleer is a British brand of designed and handcrafted wedding gowns created by designer and proprietor,
Tracey Salt and her highly skilled team of resident seamstresses, who have over 60 years experience between them.
Their dresses are recognized for their elegance, luxury and simplicity using opulent handpicked silks and laces.
‘The Shakespeare in Love collection encapsulates the beauty and fragility of a love story from a bygone era.
