A beautiful lace and tulle vintage wedding gown, a rustic pergola, old granite walls, rambling foliage, a smattering of Shakespeare… The scene was set for our bride to gather flowers in this Secret Garden in the heart of Dorset.

I chose to shoot this on film for its gorgeous, luminous tones.  The cleverness and convenience of digital photography is vast, and yet I honestly do not think the artistic quality of film can be matched.
