Elegant Romance Meets Modern Glam at The Bugle Hotel, with Jennifer Jane Photography

Published by Claire Gould on

Wedding inspiration at its finest – this morning we’re bringing you all the loveliest pale pinks, peaches and romantic wedding styling. This enchanting editorial shoot captures the old world glamour of a stunning Southampton venue with deliciously modern elements. It’s an absolute beauty to stop your scrolling in its tracks!

With lovely Jennifer Jane Photography and a super talented team of local wedding suppliers (list below). Enjoy!

The shoot took place at a beautiful new wedding venue situated overlooking Southampton’s Royal Pier – The Bugle. Having been abandoned for 11 years, before when it was The Royal Southern Yacht Club, the Victorian townhouse has been fully renovated from head to toe and given a new lease of life. With a real fusion of old-world elegance and playful modern décor.

The concept of the shoot was to combine the old world glamour of the venue with a luxurious, modern romantic feel.

The florals and colour palette were soft and  romantic, combining  pale pinks, peaches and white, to create a very classically charming tablescape design. Similarly to the venue, the tablescape was timelessly beautiful, but with modern elements, such as the use of twisted taper candles.

The flowers were tall and elegant with a modern unstructured look. The cake was a classic white iced-tiered cake, with uneven tiers and wild florals for a modern edge.

In keeping with the rest of the design, the models had a super glamorous but very feminine look.  The bridal gown was a Jane Hill design, the epitome of luxury contemporary bridal. Featuring a strapless boned bodice with a sweetheart neckline, layering around the bust, gorgeous delicate buttons down the back of the dress and a full skirt with a high-leg slit, and oozes glamour and class.

Glamorous Hollywood curls and makeup were chosen to fit with the overall luxury feel, with gold jewellery to compliment the warm, lavish golds used in the table design. The groom wore a classic tux.
