Beautiful Melanie Potro wedding dress shoot with striking monochrome styling

Today I have the pleasure of featuring a gorgeous styled shoot submitted by bridal couturier Melanie Potro. Melanie’s gowns are divine – combining modern shapes and styling touches with the most exquisite fabrics and wonderful attention to every last detail. Every modern bride should discover and try a Melanie Potro gown… they’re simply fabulous. Images were captured by the award winning Hannah McClune Photography assisted by Alice Hudson.

The shoot took place at  Hedsor House in Buckinghamshire and was styled around a colour palette of monochrome and gold with a hint of mint green. Wedding planner Rachael from Serendipity Weddings designed the sequinned table plan and styled a confetti bar for guests as well as styling the entire shoot.

The dress is the beautiful ‘Alana’ gown by Melanie Potro Bridal Couture, modelled by Meg O’Duffy. Meg’s elegant up-do and glamorous makeup were the handiwork of artist Liz Patey and her hair was finished with a playful gold bow from Polly McGeary. Groom Henry Morris looks gorgeous in a tuxedo loaned by Stephen Bishop Suiting.

Florist Tarnia Williams – Flowers for Weddings created a unique and stunning floral chandelier featuring more of the parrot tulips and gypsophila. Lots of monochrome ribbon was used throughout to add impact to the designs. The bridal bouquet combined ivory roses and beautiful ornithogalum, and co-ordinating buttonholes and centrepieces also used freesia, parrot tulips and gypsophila.

Melissa Woodland Cakes designed a 4 tier monochrome and gold cake which was finished with a monogram and delicate sugarpaste tulips. Laura of The Sweet Stylist created a beautiful sweet table with elegant glass jars and striped monochrome & gold paperie, as well as setting up a fabulous milk and cookie station, the perfect late night snack for peckish wedding guests. Together Melissa & Laura also styled a dessert table featuring chocolate brownies and mint marshmallows alongside the beautiful cake and a selection of sweets.

E.Y.I Love designed the stunning black and gold foiled stationery that featured throughout the shoot, and Pocketful of Pennies provided the gold and mint letters.
