A styled shoot inspired by a modern romance in a classic setting…
This elopement editorial brings together both vintage and modern elements, that have a timeless quality. We curated a look imbued with lightness, grace, elegance, and simplicity, for a thoughtful, understated luxury ambience.
The details were all carefully hand-picked and handcrafted, to add a distinctively personal touch. We imagined our modern couple would have a mixed background – the bride from Paris and the groom from London. So, we incorporated elements inspired by each of the two cities.
The emphasis was on the two bridal gowns – one seductive organza gown, with pearl applique, ruffles, and a plunging neckline adding a Parisian couture flair. While the other, elegant, delicate, and a little more subdued; with details reminiscent of classic 1900s English summer lace dresses, like the high collar and long sleeves; yet with a very contemporary, ethereal look.
The main objective of our shoot was to show exquisitely crafted signature details and bespoke elements that could become beautiful heirlooms in time, in order to shine a spotlight on handmade, sustainable beauty, and conscious luxury. From the superb hand-made details of the bespoke gowns to the delicate fondant flowers of the cake, the hand-painted details of the stationery on hand-made paper, the organic cotton and bamboo silk for the table linens, and all the way to the foam-free and seasonal floral installations. Ultimately, we wanted to put forth bridal inspiration that is stunning, indulgent, and luxurious, yet conscious and relevant for our time.
