Fetcham Park Dolls Fashion Shoot

If ever there was going to be a baptism of fire for Fetcham Park, hosting our inaugural photo shoot which saw an absolute deluge of wedding creatives working all over the house and gardens was certainly it!

Back in 2011 during a grizzly August Bank Holiday, the house had its first insight into the wedding industry with a collaborative shoot between Emma Meek of Miss Bush Bridalwear showcasing the upcoming Jenny Packham and Rosa Clara collections, Penny Cullen of Tigerlily Weddings curating and styling the art direction and Eddie Judd Photography battling tricky lighting and a tight schedule to create this beautiful portfolio of images.

It’s hard to describe the controlled chaos of the day or the fact that everywhere we looked something spectacular was taking place. A flurry of teenage girls disappeared noisily down our normally quiet corridors and reappeared as bridal pin-ups. An entire dressing room emerged outside beneath a curtain of beautiful ribbons as a set for one particular shot. The sound of excited discussion and shouted directions populated every crevice of the building.

Penny’s inspiration saw a brigade of beautiful models transformed into dolls in different guises. As such, we present to you Hippy Doll, Audrey Doll, Rock Doll, Vintage Doll and Sexy Doll, the aspirational bridal nymphs who were the first to frolic in the grounds of Fetcham Park.

Everyone who congregated at Fetcham on that lazy Sunday afternoon will cherish their memories of being able to create and to play without inhibition. For us, it was a precursor of things to come, be that our launch event which was once again made to look exquisite thanks to Tigerlily Weddings and Miss Bush, or the legion of weddings we have since hosted that have filled the house with the same sound of excited happiness.

We always knew that Fetcham Park would simply facilitate whatever aspirations our guests held, but this was our first real proof that the house truly provided an elegant and unimposing backdrop. We couldn’t have been prouder.
