Back in 2015, Our Sister, The Bridal Emporium and a whole bunch of vintage loving wedding suppliers joined forces to create the perfect wedding photo shoot. Inspired by romantic, rich and lavish ideas with a slight Grecian feel – there’s nothing more luxurious than this shoot. If you’re a lover of all things vintage, romantic and stylish and want to view some gorgeously shot, fancy luxury wedding supplies then you’ve come to the right place!
The chosen location was Swinton Estate, Ripon – situated on 20,000 acres of Yorkshire land this gorgeous country estate was absolutely perfect for the shoot. It provided everything that was necessary in order to fit with the nature/luxury vibe, making sure that the fake wedding set-up looked as real as ever.
With a selection of extraordinary gowns provided by True Vintage and KMR Bridal and not to forget Claire Amelia’s handmade multiway dresses, being both modern and old-school – the combination of the two produce a lovely mixture and highlight the shoot’s aesthetics.
The simplicity of the dresses compliments the natural hair and make-up purposely fashioned for this shoot. However, with the gold belt and accessory accents (all provided by The Bridal Emporium and available in the Leeds Store) and the pretty pink, purple and white floral bouquets – the look was really well thought out and very unique.
The models really captured the romantic and natural feel of the shoot, providing stunning images captured by the talented photographer: Jane Beadnell Photography. Her images focus on the small details, allowing the backdrop to stay visible and the rustic nature of the Swinton Estate to creep through.
The styling of the shoot had a real romantic nature to it, influenced by nature and all things extravagant, the gold, pink and green merge together perfectly to create a luxury table setting, perfect for any wedding day. The subtle attention to detail and the gold features just add that little sparkle, giving the whole venue that glamorous feel. The golden pear details really bring together the rich, Grecian feel and compliment all of the other gold features, tying the whole theme together in one beautiful gold bow.
The gorgeous cake that stands strongly in the middle of the table, perfectly designed and finished comes from Zoe’s Fancy Cakes. Draped in gorgeous blush pink floral details, gold lining details and various textured ivory icing, the cake is an absolute dream. The luxury it portrays is out of this world and it fits perfectly in place on the table spread, matching the theme superbly. The cake screams femininity, so romantic and soft and the ivory colouring is warmed by the subtle gold detailing.
The shoot, designed to showcase the best of British suppliers, was a complete success. By using a colour scheme that was so luxurious and expensive looking. Notice that the colour scheme: pink, gold and ivory with the natural bridal look has made a comeback for 2017 – so if you’re a bride and you’re looking for inspiration then this shoot is perfect.
We loved everything from the table decor to wedding cake, to groom and bridal styling, each one of these local independent suppliers would be perfect for a luxury summers wedding with a rich, Grecian feel.
