This Eco-Luxe inspired styled shoot took place at environmentally conscious Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester earlier this year. With a collection of equally conscious wedding professionals on board, it proved to be a higly successful shoot providing inspiration, ideas and a platform for showcasing how your wedding too can be 'green' and beautiful.
This version of the styled shoot has been shared by Swindon based bespoke shoe and accessories designer Cece of Dymond's Shoes & Accessories.

Now this was an experience we were very excited to be a part of.
A classic English springtime wedding with a twist - all the elements are sourced from local Cotswolds based suppliers who have an ethical, sustainable and/or environmentally-sound dimension to their business. This could be through the ingredients they use through to how they make or deliver their ‘products’. The overall ethos that beautiful weddings can also be kind to the planet.
"The Mood": a blend of contemporary and romantic.
The ethos behind this shoot really nailed the purpose of Dymond's Shoes & Accessories: To enjoy quality and luxury with the opportunity to love the item over and over. Our shoes are not just for your day, they're for a lifetime. We pride ourselves in promoting the refashioning possibilities with the products we use, whether our customers opt to purchase a new product that can be refashioned for their day, or after, or by providing us with much loved shoes that suit to become a new and re-loved item altogether. Our aim is to ensure every bride has that one-of-a-kind Cinderella experience whilst providing a much loved wedding accessory that can be used again for years to come.
Our host, The Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester, is set in 25 acres on the outskirts of historic Cirencester. It provides a versatile wedding venue for couples with a multi-faith chapel on site as well as a license for civil ceremonies. There are a number of different function rooms in the 16th century Bathurst wing as well as beautiful outdoor spaces and gardens. As a University, The Royal Agricultural University is committed to promoting sustainable food production and was ranked 1st of all universities for carbon footprint reduction.
Working alongside each of the wedding professionals in attendance was a truly educational experience, as we all shared a glimpse of the skill, attention to detail and efforts that go into each item or service.
