Romance & glamour was the underlying theme for this beautiful wedding editorial set at Hawkstone Hall in England. The grand & historic hall with its very own ornate chapel is situated in the unspoilt countryside on the Shropshire/Cheshire border.

The shoot colour scheme composed of peach, pink, copper & gold which added beautiful warmth to the luxury feel of the shoot. A stylish invitation suite featuring mixed colours of ivory, peach, & black was designed by The Little Paper Shop and this was photographed as a flat lay on a pink canvas background.
Despite being a grand space, our beautiful mock up ceremony with gorgeous real life couple, Oliver & Rossi still felt completely intimate, special and like the very best of romance novels.
Wanting to showcase 2 equally stunning, but very different bridal looks, the bride wore a pretty, feminine mermaid gown by Badgley Mischka & a stunning ballgown by Elysee both from The Bridal Rooms. The fitted Elysee gown features intricate pearl-like beading, with lattice sequined lace which flows down into a soft tulle mermaid skirt. The Badgley Mischka ballgown has a beautiful floral embroidered lace strapless love heart bodice with a full organza & tulle skirt. Both dresses were teamed with a pair of vintage gold Manolo Blahnik heels.
The beauty team created a gorgeous & glamorous bridal look by using a brown & champagne blended shimmer eye shadow, with extended lashes and black eyeliner. The lips were kept pinky nude and finished with clear high shine gloss.
For the first look a half up, half down hairstyle was created with soft flowing curls and accessorised with a stunning gold, pearl and amber head band from Vintage Adornments. For the second look the bride’s hair was left down with soft waves and a centre parting.
The wedding breakfast table was set up in the impressive and ornate ballroom at Hawkstone Hall. Each setting was complete with tableware by the venue, silk napkins by Lancaster & Cornish, and a name card by Little Paper Shop Designs. This was styled with an apricot coloured silk runner, vintage gold candlesticks and taper candles. The table centrepiece consisted of a beautiful mix of specialist roses & harmonizing foliage by TMS Events, with a complimenting hand tied bouquet for the bride.
Hunkington House Kitchen designed a tall 2 tier iced cake, finished off with a fresh rose flower topper, complimenting the other florals in the shoot.
As a treat for all the car lovers out there, Sports Car Hire loaned out a truly incredible McLaren 570S from their fleet. The groom particularly enjoyed been photographed alongside it!
We absolutely loved working on this glamorous styled shoot. Even though the Hall and its event rooms are large and grand, it still felt completely intimate, special and heartfelt.
