Lady Chatterley's Lover - Styled Wedding Shoot

It all started with a breathtakingly spectacular venue, the desire to show off its beauty in a worthy manner and an infamous love story.

Styled photoshoots are almost done to oblivion these days, one might think. True – but that doesn’t make them any less exciting for the teams behind them, especially when you get to do something that’s just that bit different.

The inspiration for this shoot came from the infamous story of Lady Chatterley and her lover – a story so racy, it was considered ‘unmentionable’ when first published in 1926 and not permitted to be printed uncensored in the UK until 1960.

The plot revolves around Lady Constance Chatterley and her upper-class husband Clifford, who became paralysed after having being injured in the war, leaving Constance feeling neglected and frustrated both, emotionally and physically.

What ensues is Lady Chatterley’s battle of mind over matter, trying to put aside her physical needs in favour of a more mindful relationship with her husband. Her efforts are futile and eventually lead to a torrid and emotionally complex affair with Mellors, the estate’s gamekeeper.

With our combined creative license, of course, we endeavoured to capture photographically what D.H. Lawrence had put into words almost a century ago. We sincerely hope to have done him and us proud.

For full details of the brilliant team behind this shoot and a few pics of everyone in action please read the post here. 

This shoot was created to be shared so if you have a blog or know someone who might like to publish the images please get in touch and we will sort it!

We enter the story with Lady Chatterley’s invitation to join her for cocktails and dinner…
