Something Blue: A Love Story in Chelsea!

Published by Claire Gould on

Something a little playful for you lovelies this morning! This styled editorial is a gentle reminder to be who you are on your wedding day. If a white dress or morning suit just aren’t really ‘you’, then remember: you can wear anything you like for your wedding… why not have fun, and be playful with your wedding outfits?

Thank you to lovely Giada from Enchanting Weddings & Events for sharing this with us! Here’s her introduction to the photoshoot (and our full supplier list below)

When I first considered doing this styled shoot, I wanted to do something unique. I wanted this shoot to be simple and highlight the essentials while also being fun and playful. I also wanted an open, light-filled space, so The Phene in Chelsea seemed like the ideal choice!

Maria and Miguel are my model bride and groom, and they are stunningly dressed by Millia London and Viggo London.

Maria’s look was created by our beauty queen Bridal Makeup By Sameera, who also provided hair accessories from Becci’s Bridal Design.

I added movement to the look with a stunning wavy layered dress by Millia London, which was mirrored by a divine layered cake by Aurora’s Kitchen.

Then there’s the soft light and shadow captured by the capable Team of San Dias Photography to enhance and highlight our two newlyweds’ delicate features.

The Blue Sky China and Bunting Team worked their magic to create the beautiful lantern settings and the hoop that framed important moments like the cake cutting and the first toast.

Olympia Olympitis designed the perfect stationery, and Something Blue By Ostro supplied everything from cufflinks to wedding bands.

The colour scheme is dominated by icy tones that wink at a divine palette of blue tones ranging from baby blue to cyan, royal blue to light blue.

To recreate this look, I recommend finding a venue with lots of light, that has the ability to hang ceiling installations (the Phene, unfortunately, did not have this opportunity, so my team and I built a gazebo inside the Oakley room to be able to have lanterns in our pictures), and then wearing a statement dress like Maria’s to stun your guests!!
