Be Bold Be Beautiful, Be Brave – Dior

Published by Claire Gould on

A wedding vision based on Dior, from one of our fave UK wedding planners Tania Russell Weddings. This inspiration shoot is dreamy, bold and sensual with stunning decor and glorious styling touches. We love it because Kristina and Basil have that mischievous vibe that still brings ALL the joy!

Tania told us, “I wanted to bring glamour, fashion and something sexy to the theme.

The shoot was based at the stunning luxury venue Alexander House & Utopia Spa in the West Sussex countryside.

The decor and styling was simple, modern and elegant. This is something that any couple would be able to do but was executed by the talented The Pretty Events Co, who provided the decor and styled the table.

The flowers were made by Bryony Mae Flowers and the elegant cake was by Sweet Sensation.

It was finished off with the stationery by KM Stationery & Design.

The inspiration was about creating elements of Dior, bringing sexiness to the wedding, losing the traditional white dress and showing that it’s not all about white. Ryley & Flynn provided a stunning black Raven Skirt, we then paired it with a lace top for the day & a corset for the evening, with the groom’s casual suit with no tie. It worked well, along with the Hollywood hair by Joanne Hook and the stunning birdcage headpiece by Victoria Charles Headpieces brought everything together to make that Dior feeling come to life.”
