Hi.

Welcome to ASTW - the place for bespoke brides looking for unique handmade items, ideas & inspiration

A Very Scottish Fairytale

A Very Scottish Fairytale

We are absolutely thrilled to be able to share with you this truly beautiful styled shoot. With a focus on local suppliers it encompasses everything that we value and celebrate at ASTW. Get swept away by the romance, detail and stunning location, we hope you enjoy.

There are few things more rewarding than seeing a team of wedding specialists all pulling together around a bride to make her day incredible. From hair to make-up, photography to video, florist to dress supplier and not to mention her unique venue/location. The synergy between our suppliers was palpable on the shoot.

Every good wedding day team should generate a calm confidence which will rub off on the bride and groom giving them the assurance that their day is in the hands of professionals who will look after them, allowing them to relax and enjoy their big day.

The shoot

The purpose of the shoot was to recreate the joyous romantic opulence of a wedding day. Our vision was of a prince and princess, with our male model providing a brooding counterweight to an overwhelmingly feminine event. It is inspiring that grandeur can be created though a small power of bespoke local suppliers. The bank of Loch Lomond speaks for itself, a popular and innately romantic setting for any couple.  The photographer Olesja from Sue-Slique Photography has a romantic soft approach with a very feminine feel.
