Inspiration: Grey Colour Concept
Nestled within the Essex countryside, That Amazing Place, a former monastery is an exclusive use wedding venue offering a beautiful manor house and stunning grounds to its couples. It played host to our bridal photoshoot on a rather chilly January day.
My mission was to create elegance and tradition with variations of grey tones.
Our bride, Ariana Gomes wore Aisla Munro’s ‘Elin’, a silver grey silk wedding dress with chiffon skirt, scoop neckline, and beaded belt. The gown was accessorised with a grey feather bolero and silver and pearl jewellery from Donna Crain to accentuate the beaded belt. The gown was then paired with grey beaded ‘Victoria Vapour’ heels from Emmy London. Silver rings were provided by Justin Duance as were our grooms’ cufflinks. Nicola from Got Nails Got Beauty created shimmering ombré nails with white, silver and glitter, giving our bride that extra bit of bling!
Bev from Makeupology kept the bridal makeup in tune with the dove grey concept, using a silver and white colour palette on the eyes and natural lip colour. Helen from Brides Personified allowed Ariana’s hair to curl loosely, lightly pinning a few curls in a low beehive which truly allows Donna Crain’s hair piece to sparkle. Similarly, when marrying the gown with an ivory Church length veil from Sash and Veil, the bridal look popped with elegance.
Pavel Diaz, our groom looked incredibly dapper in a grey suit and matching tweed waistcoat from Hire 5. His silver tie, pocket square, (Hire 5) ring and cufflinks (Justin Duance) are a simple way to incorporate your groom within your wedding’s colour theme.
Our table set up was provided by Couvert Hire. On a circular table, we kept the décor simple and minimalistic with slate place settings partnered with stunning Oka mother of pearl cutlery and grey and silver glassware. Allow your colour theme to truly shine by using matching coloured glassware and linen. Jo from Browns Blooms and Balloons created a beautiful floral centrepiece, bouquet and button hole using white and grey flowers and succulents. We interspersed the floral arrangement with silver and grey tea lights and pillar candles, adding height to the otherwise simple and low design.
The Sugared Saffron Cake Studio outdid themselves with the most beautiful two tone and two tiered grey and white circular cake, adorned with crystals and beads. The crystal arrangement partnered beautifully with the hair piece that the bride wore from Donna Crain.
Suzanne Oddy designed a gorgeous bespoke stationery suite in dove grey and white with floral and lace décor, and stunning calligraphy – allowing the colour concept to flow from invitation, to cake cutting.
Huge thanks go to every single member of the team, particularly to styling assistant Jenni Payne and to the wonderful staff at That Amazing Place.
