A British wedding photographer calls on soft, natural light and a romantic color palette to stage an elegant bridal shoot in the replica of a historic Essex home.

Soft, natural lighting, a dreamy blush and cream color palette, and a stunning historic home inspired London-based wedding photographer Claire Graham to create a styled bridal shoot that felt romantic, effortless, and timeless. "In my style of photography, I believe less is more, which is why I like to keep things simple," says Graham. "I'm always looking to incorporate beautiful light and a soft warm color palette into my photographs." The Orsett Hall in Essex, a replica of a 17th century home, which now serves as a hotel, provided the perfect place to bring her vision to life.
