Celebrating The Crown
Inspired by hit TV show, The Crown, this gorgeous style shoot was a fabulous way of celebrating Her Majesty the Queen’s record-breaking reign.
For over 65 years our monarch has shone with loyalty and affection, faithfully dedicated to her role. Our friends at Raspberry Bespoke Events based this shoot around beautiful crowns and headpieces from Botias as an interpretation of a regal and opulent style.
The entire shoot just oozed regal charm. Working with a shared vision, the team brought together the look set against the dramatic Hengrave Hall as the perfect backdrop. Steeped in history, this Tudor mansion is set in acres of rolling landscapes. Having been visited by royalty on many occasions, including Elizabeth I in 1578, this was the ideal location for the regal shoot.
The stunning ivory and soft green palette of the opulent grand hall at Hengrave House set the perfect theme. Natural beauty was the colour inspiration and it beautifully showcased the bespoke hair pieces, specially commissioned by Botias, letting them shine alongside gorgeous floral displays and tablescapes.
Combining gorgeous textures of greenery with soft white flowers, world-class floral designer, Fabienne Egger, used Ohara roses, sweet peas, white lilac, spray roses and trailing jasmine amongst olive branches for beautiful displays. Twining around cakes from Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium topped with crowns, the abundant blooms embraced each elegant place setting, fit for any queen, and luxuriously cascaded over the sides of the table. The bridal bouquet was another stunning creation, sweeping down the exquisite bridal gowns provided by Morgan Davies bridal.
Steal the look!
Adding foliage (and lots of it!) to your decor keeps the look luxurious, romantic and beautifully fresh. You’ll find that a natural tone lifts the palette whilst complimenting any sparkling jewels that you adorn yourself with! White is the ideal partner to greenery, creating a chic, contemporary and stylish palette. Gold is the perfect metallic accent, giving a simple and clean colour palette for a luxuriously regal feel.
A gloriously regal style, beautiful gowns and intricately handcrafted headpieces came together to create a majestic style shoot.
