Inspiration: Winter Sparkle Wonderland
The stunning Elvetham Hotel played host to our styled bridal photoshoot which took place on a chilly Autumnal day with a fabulous team of wedding professionals. Steeped in history, and with 35 acres surrounding the hotel, The Elvetham has fast become an increasingly popular wedding and conference venue for brides and businesses alike. With its incredibly grand exterior, fabulous antique interior and plush manicured gardens, it was the perfect place for a team of local suppliers to collaborate together to showcase their creativity.
Gilly from Amore Star Events coordinated the photoshoot, bringing together creatives from the Home Counties wedding industry. Charlotte from Amaryllis Bridalwear provided two stunning bridal gowns, to enable us to achieve two slightly different bridal looks. The first saw our model Jemma in a Maggie Sottero dress with full tulle skirt and intricately beaded bodice, completed with a faux fur wrap, tiara and Irregular Choice Shoes. The bridal hair and make-up was provided by Catherine from Natasha Wiggins who opted for a traditional, elegant yet natural look which romantic rose red lips. The second look was created with a Justin Alexander full length silk gown, complimented with soft, romantic hair and make-up and sparkly Rainbow Club shoes. Walking through the beautiful gardens of The Elvetham, our bride Jemma and our bridesmaid Lauren who was dressed in a royal blue gown from The Dessy Group both held onto two giant white Bubblegum balloons filled with white feathers.
The feathers continued in our décor inside the hotel, (provided by White Lilac Flowers) with a large floral centrepiece and napkin holders contrasting with silver candlesticks, a fabulous silver sequin tablecloth and silver and white chair covers, provided by Sitting Pretty. Our second look inside was achieved in the conservatory with a fabulous on-trend suspended floral display, complete with winter icicles and a table full of silver candlesticks and holders creating a romantic, fairy-tale feel.
Our gorgeous array of wedding stationery was provided to us by Envite. Samantha encapsulated our winter sparkle theme, by using silver glitter accessories and snowflakes. Our amazing tiered wedding cakes were designed and intricately made by Yevnig of Unique Cakes By Yevnig. One was a simple cream three tiered textured cake, complete with lace, beading and flowers. The Second was inspired by our Justin Alexander dress – five different sized tiers adorned with jewels, beads, and tulle. This is a brilliant way to draw your wedding themes together - replicating an element of your day such as your dress or shoes, into your cake.
Finally, but by no means least, our incredibly talented photographer, Jacques from Real Simple Photography captured the sparkle and magic from our shoot perfectly. He has a beautifully creative eye, incorporating the grandeur of the venue and it’s stunning gardens into his images.
The entire team are all either Surrey, Hampshire or Berkshire based wedding professionals, local to The Elvetham. It was a pleasure to transform the stunning venue into a Winter Wonderland for the day, giving us all the ability to showcase our creativity and work together to curate a beautiful shoot.
