“My love for you is eternal like a circle. It has no beginning and no end.” – Anon
We fell for this styled shoot; the prettiest florals, most elegant cake and simply exquisite luxury styling. A perfect look ahead to spring and summer colours and themes, this one will definitely give you some inspiration. Take a little journey with us…
The team wanted to show couples how to create a beautiful, luxury wedding with a powerful hidden meaning woven all the way through. Rola from The New Wonderful writes, “We find that most of the couples we work with now don’t have an explicit theme in mind, instead what they want is a personal wedding that reflects their personalities, relationship journey and their love for each other.”
The glorious floral backdrop designed by Miriam Faith features beautiful, big, bold wreaths filled with luxurious flowers. The circle has long been an integral part of wedding ceremonies around the world in various forms, most tangibly in the wedding bands exchanged at millions of ceremonies every year. The wedding ring symbolises completeness and eternal, unbroken love. That became the theme for the shoot – “A Love Unbroken”. The wedding design carries this idea of rings in various ways from the circular menus by Pale Press London and the circular backs of the Louis chairs from Great Hire.
The colour palette
The soft colour palette of lilac, creams and mint green with a hint of gold was inspired by spring and chosen because it has impact without being too obviously traditional. The ensemble has depth without being overwhelming, and leaves a truly memorable impression. By staying away from the traditional blushes and pinks, the palette gives a new inspiration to brides to be bold in their colour choices.
The space was created to be a really special and intimate ceremony space, almost dream-like, where the besotted couple could exchange their vows. The golden pedestals enhance the ethereal feeling of the space, reflecting the light of the floating candles lining the aisle.
Adding to the personal feel of the wedding, all the stationery was hand calligraphed by the very talented Ash of Pale Press London and the silk chiffon table linen and silk napkin ribbons were handmade by Rola of The New Wonderful. The tableware created a fresh and delicate look to balance out the lush floral centrepieces. Keeping it simple with elegant gold and white crockery and glassware from Whitehouse Crockery gave a chic and natural look, with a sweet lilac silk ribbon accent. The overflowing urns of garden roses, ranunculus and clematis added a dramatic element to the flowers, sitting beautifully alongside the sweet peas which flooded the space with a glorious scent – a beautiful reminder in years to come of a perfect day.
The stunning wedding dress is ‘Leona’ from the Zuhair Murad Bridal collection via The Wedding Club. We love how this dress manages to feel dramatic, delicate and sophisticated all at once. For the reception or evening look, a more sultry dress from Berta Bridal via The Wedding Club added beautiful detail to the styling. Lots of brides are now choosing to wear a second dress, usually something more relaxed than their main wedding dress so they can show another side to themselves and get their dance on! And this Berta dress is perfect for that.
The setting for the wedding was the majestic Ognisko Polskie (“Polish Hearth”) in South Kensington. The magnificent wide marble staircase and high ceilings in the ballroom and throughout the building are brightly lit and inviting, giving a fresh and light atmosphere to celebrate the joy of a wedding.
