At The Foundling Museum in London

A trip back in time

Downton Abbey captured the hearts of people around the world with its endearing characters, gripping storylines and historic staging. This strong, classic Edwardian style is very much on trend for wedding themes and bridal styling, so we’re absolutely in love with this shoot at The Foundling Museum in London, by photographers Tai Adedayo from Lovexposed Photography and Tino Antoniou.

The couture bridal gowns, by Kate Edmondson, perfectly complimented the surroundings, with layers of tulle and sparkling diamanté details. The prettiest shoes, from Rachel Simpson Bridal, accessorised the outfit perfectly, and Glitzy Secret Jewellery supplied the stunning diamante encrusted head pieces, drop diamante necklaces, gorgeous earrings and bejewelled cuffs. Each piece was so carefully handcrafted, they showed an opulence which really suited the Downton Abbey feel perfect.

Makeup was kept light, with only a hint of lip colour, in keeping with the natural, light palette. Cream and pink flowers and fresh green foliage, accented with a rich gold for a touch of luxury, set beautifully against the ancient canvases, painted with portraits and landscapes from a bygone era.
