Marshmallow pinks and a scattering of gold leaf for beautiful Derbyshire weddings
We’re excited to launch this summer’s wedding blog features with this STUNNING inspiration shoot organised by make up artist Charlotte Morley, who brought together a team of talented UK wedding suppliers to create a luxury feel of soft sorbet pinks and ivory. Today’s blog post is absolutely beautiful with crazy beautiful florals and two completely different wedding dresses that would suit any bride at any venue.

Although we only had a bride for the day, images by Key Reflections still tell a story of romance and beauty. Sarah photographed this mini shoot timelessly and the images show that any bride and groom can take elements from the shoot or use it as a complete theme for their own wedding. The way the team has created the soft romantic feels with a stunning backdrop like that of Stancliffe Hall is sublime.
Lovely English Wedding member Sam at Fantail Designer Florist created the backbone for the concept and supplied the most exquisite seasonal florals.
We’re blown away by the large detailed bouquet of marshmallow pink and ivory. The floral recipe included Dahlia, Double Lisianthus, Astilbe, Spray Roses, Memory Lane Roses and Sweet Avalanche Roses.
Stancliffe Hall is a home as well as a hall with each part of the house that has a story to tell, offering charm and calm in equal measure. This is something that we think reflects in our shoot. Like the images taken by Sarah at Key Reflections, Stancliffe Hall mention that anyone can feel indulged, but not overwhelmed and entirely at ease. Brides and grooms can enjoy Stancliffe Hall as an exclusive venue. They only hold a certain number of weddings a year and the venue is known for exceptionally high service standards which was evident while the team were there for the shoot.
Nora Bridal, who are based in Chesterfield supplied us with two dresses. The first was an embroidered gown from Jolie by Berta which has a deep V cut at the front, an open back and a skirt with alluring high slits – the designer takes on a different angle to traditional bridal fashion and we love it. Our model Emmie Lawrence really wears this dress well and proves you can be edgy and sophisticated on your wedding day in this outfit.
We then changed the bride the most beautiful soft and delicate dress designed by Maggie Sottero ‘Pamela’ which makes a serious statement. Being an A-line, long-sleeved wedding dress, it is perfect for any wedding style. This gown features lace motifs over a sparkle tulle, sheer beaded lace bodice with a sweetheart neckline.
Gold charger plates were the background to a classically elegant table setting with matt gold cutlery and neutral crockery. Sarah B Weddings opted for blush napkins and chair sashes to compliment the floral filled crystal stand centre by Fantail Florist that pulls everything together.
Ivy Alice Stationery created the most divine collection with an over indulgence of luxury. 24ct gold leaf, hand died silk on 400 gsm textured card with a stunning pink pearl wax seal. Menu Cards, Order of the Day and Place Settings adorn the table while macarons and macaron pops were added as favours by Charlotte Wilcox Cake Design.
Victoria Louise Accessories supplied the shoot with some subtle and soft ostrich feather earrings and a Rose & Iris Headband.
For those brides who want a change of detailing and something unique, why not opt for an acrylic purse, like that we filled with fresh floral supplied by Ivy Alice Stationery.
Charlotte Mallinder Make Up Artist wanted to capture the true essence of the model’s natural beauty. Keeping the skin fresh, dewy and flawless, sculpting the blush and eyes to compliment the models striking features. Charlotte created something effortless and radiant so that it would look timeless.
Carly Hair styled a chic ponytail for the first look with Hollywood Waves for the second.
Charlotte Wilcox Cake Design created a pretty and elegant cake that pulled together soft colours, textures and a scattering of gold leaf for added opulence. Delicate sugar flowers added depth, without being overpowering. These details perfectly complemented the cake table styling and stationery.
Jessica Steele Jewellery supplied bespoke stunning rings – she says ‘“To me, jewellery is so much more than an accessory. It tells a story and it links us to people in our past we never got to meet. Ask most people what their most important item of jewellery is – it’s never the most expensive piece but the ones that are connected to memories of the ones they love, that’s incredibly important and always has been throughout human history”
