The blog has had so much gorgeousness on it this week, that I thought we should be ending with a beautiful collaboration of epic Yorkshire proportion. I wish I had seen the above dress before my wedding. It is so pretty, I wonder if Helen would let me visit to stroke it? Anywho, please enjoy, leave some love and pin away! 


This July, wedding photographer Laura Calderwood and couture bridal designer Helen Dryden Harland of Darling Fred joined forces to create a portfolio of elegant images at Goldsborough Hall, near Knaresborough.

Laura says, ‘We wanted the shoot to have a romantic and glamorous feel, to showcase the elegance and luxury of Helen’s exquisite bespoke wedding gowns and the work of some of our very favourite wedding suppliers. Goldsborough Hall, with its sweeping lawns, landscaped gardens and beautiful weeping ash and copper beech trees, made it the perfect location for the shoot.’


Helen adds, ‘Darling Fred and Laura Calderwood Photography want to do all they can to help brides have the perfect day they’ve always dreamed of. Hopefully from the stunning images we’ve produced, future brides will see that this is the case, and that quality, elegance and romance is everything to us.’
