Bridal Shoot at Symondsbury Estate and West Bay, Dorset

A beautiful spring day, bringing together local wedding suppliers for a gorgeous bridal shoot in Symondsbury and West Bay. 

With a collection of dazzling dresses from TL Bridal, we set out to the breathtaking venue of Symondsbury Estate. TL Bridal, based in Axminster, boast a modern sophisticated boutique with a warm and relaxed feel for brides to find their perfect dress. Tessa and Lorraine are two of the friendliest people you could ever wish to meet and put their brides at ease instantly.

The gorgeous venue at Symondsbury has a wonderfully restored Tithe Barn, through which lots of wonderful natural light floods in. The barn is complemented by beautiful gardens and an iconic backdrop of Colmers Hill.

Our model was styled throughout the day by Marie and Jess from Reflections Hair & Beauty, Axminster. The attention to detail with hair and make-up was second to none, with a different look created for each dress. As well as providing a service to visit brides on their wedding day, they also have a spacious, modern salon in the heart of Axminster.

Stunning flowers were provided by Sarah from Cloud Nine Florist, also of Axminster. Each arrangement matched the dress perfectly and really complemented the whole look. Sarah’s bespoke floral arrangements are created lovingly to suit any occasion.

We finished the day by heading a few minutes down the road to the near by West Bay. West Bay has been brought into the limelight recently thanks to itv’s hit drama Broadchurch. The incredible cliffs provided the most wonderful backdrop with the late afternoon sunshine helping to provide an incredible golden glow.
