The inspiration was a Country Wedding… Colors: soft pink, sand and of course white… This I thought would be the easiest approach instead of the HUGE Gala’s that I normally do…

PHOTOGRAPHY / Stephen Elledge

BIO

Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Stephen moved to New York in 1991 to study at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. His attention turned to photography when a friend hired him to make prints by hand in the darkroom. His own early photographic works were of artist friends and vacation pictures of Capri. Being a self taught photographer, his talent for creating nostalgic moods and natural skin tones, soon caught the attention of the fashion and advertising world.

After moving to Paris in 2002, he worked extensively, shooting editorials for fashion magazines all over Europe via his reps Par31 in Holland and Sarah Daw in London. His personal work has been exhibited in galleries such as Tactile Bosche in the UK and the Mendo in Amsterdam. Stephen currently spends his time between New York and Austin.

DESTINATION WEDDINGS

Castle Ashby is an English country house in rural Northamptonshire, England. Historically the village was set up to service the needs of Castle Ashby Manor. Castle Ashby is surrounded by 200 acres and is the ancestral home of the 7th Marquess of Northampton; set in the heart of a 10,000 acre estate, the extensive gardens at Castle Ashby are a combination of several styles, with a mile long avenue dating back to 1695: Victorian terrace gardens, the more private and romantic Italian gardens, an elegant conservatory, triumphal arch and arboretum. It’s easy to get lost in the large rooms, almost hearing the footsteps of those that lived there long ago….

Friends Carmody and Tasha decided to take their nuptials to a different era in time….
