This summer Tythe hosted designer Hermione de Paula and her crew for a two-day shoot in what is the label’s tenth anniversary in luxury bridal design.
Photographer Kristin Vicari captured former Dolce & Gabbana model and therapist Frankie Herbert (plus her adorable dog Chick) in a selection of handcrafted, one-of-a-kind looks from the archive collection, all available to view and buy via Hermione de Paula.
This sustainable collection combines cleverly reimagined looks of Hermione de Paula signatures and favourite artworks across bridal and evening wear, using off-cuts and existing prints from previous campaign collections. Watch out for standout pieces including a hand-draped couture rose mini dress, a crystal butterfly and fern lace bralette and an ‘invisible’ mini dress scattered with couture 3D flowers.
‘Setting this campaign at Tythe was the perfect collaboration for us,’ says Hermione. ‘Beautiful, natural botanicals are central to a lot of the very detailed embroidered that we are known for. As a working farm and incredible party pad, Tythe provided a sunny, flower-filled backdrop and gorgeous boudoir spaces for our dresses in The Farmhouse that I know all our brides are going to love.’
The team at Tythe also got a first glimpse at Hermione’s new bespoke, personalised dog bows, made with coordinating fabrics to the bridal looks. Plus, her sustainable bespoke homewares – think silky robes and matching floral scatter cushions, picnic parasols and deckchairs that looked divine on Tythe’s lawns.
Here, we share a selection of our favourite shoot images.
