We loved with a love that was more than love… Dark and romantic wedding inspiration at Hedsor House, with Amanda Karen Photography

“But we loved with a love that was more than love—
I and my Annabel Lee—
With a love that the wingèd seraphs of Heaven
Coveted her and me.”

Edgar Allen Poe’s hauntingly beautiful love poem Annabel Lee inspired today’s breathtaking bridal shoot. I adore the luxury, the timelessness and opulence of everything you’re about to see.

Images are by lovely Amanda Karen Photography who explains, “The dark and romantic nature of this poem was woven through the shoot with deep reds, elegant blacks and opulent golden touches. Hedsor House was a natural choice for the venue with its iconic looming stature and its luxurious interiors.”

Extravagance and luxury styling really works here. The haute couture wedding dresses look regal and sensuous; and I do so love any beautiful wedding dress which isn’t white. Ian Stuart knocks it out of the park, obviously… swooon!!!

The rich colour palette lends itself beautifully to autumn or winter wedding styling – the gold accents and those divine black candles are fabulous.
