We end the week with a lovely styling inspiration sent in by Sandra from Fabulous Functions UK and Clare of Barefoot Photography. With ombre themed centrepieces and a banquet style table setting, this is traditional styling with an eclectic twist: ombre themed centrepieces and a riot of blooms with copper and gold accents add luxe, and our bride in a Watters gown is just stunning, radiant on her best day ever.
I will leave you in Sandra’s capable hands to introduce the shoot and explain how it all came about. Have a wonderful Sunday everyone, with love,
Couples looking for inspiration for their venue decoration get to see how an empty function room can be transformed into a magical wedding world. The Bear Hotel in Hungerford is a gorgeous wedding venue featuring several event spaces, a terrace and a beautiful secret garden. We show how the hotel can be transformed into a luxury wedding venue for an intimate wedding. The overall transformations was a delight to the senses.
Venue stylist Sandra from Fabulous Functions UK created the fabulous gold accented table décor for the banquet style setting and and collaborated with Louise of Wendyhouse Flowers on the concept for the ombre themed centrepieces.
As you open the door to the Riverside Suite at The Bear Hotel Hundgerford, you are met with a banquet style setting and centrepieces of roses in rich passionate burgundys and reds. Dahlias, ranunculus and a riot of blooms transcending through coppers and golds, and finally coming to rest on the sweetheart table with the cascading garland in the most delicate of blush pinks and creams.
Gently floating overhead was a fabulous flower cloud of mellow golden branches and romantic cream roses. The table setting befitted the occasion beautifully with the soft glow of candlelight dancing in the reflections of the gold rimmed crystal glassware. Crisp white china atop gold edged glass charger plates.
For a setting as glorious as this there has to be an equally glorious wedding gown; and Azalea by Watters did not disappoint. With a skirt of floating and swirling silk organza and a bodice beaded with crystals and pearls we could not have asked for a more perfect vision of perfection.
Our model carried a gloriously wild bouquet full of textures and shapes including grasses, clematis and wildflowers. And wore shoes hand embellished with seed pearls and crystals the bespoke shoes were lovingly created by Cece of Dymonds Shoes
The make up, by the talented MUA, Maurice was light and natural enhancing the models beauty.
The stationery featured the table numbers, guest names and table plan in modern acrylics adding a contemporary feel to the setting.
No wedding is complete without cake. And Fay of Fays Fairy Cakes created a fabulous 7 tier crystal cake tower for the delicious cupcakes and our gorgeous flower girl could not resist a cheeky taste.
We have Clare of Barefoot Photography to thank for the beautiful images of our work. She was here, there and everywhere capturing the various elements of the décor. She has given us these beautiful images for you to swoon over.
