Inspiration: Navy, Blush Pink with Gold Accents
Inspiration Shoot: An elegant & luxurious multicultural wedding in blush, gold & navy.
Conceived by myself and Hannah Larkin Photography.
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.
Our mission was to create multicultural elegance and sparkle using a colour palette of blush pink, sparkling gold and navy blue.
Our bride, Nadia Allen wore Paloma by Elizabeth Dye (provided by Heart A Flutter bridal) – a softly scalloped deep v bodice of Chantilly lace and keyhole back. It encompasses a stunning lightweight blush pink tulle skirt allowing free movement and sensational silhouette.
The gown was accessorised with pearl and crystal jewellery from Donna Crain and then paired with ivory and gold heels from Emmy London. Gold and sapphire rings were provided by Justin Duance as were our grooms’ cufflinks. Nicola from Got Nails Got Beauty designed pale pink nails with gold trim and added navy crystals to allow for that extra bit of bling and encompass the colour theme into the overall bridal look.
Bev from Makeupology kept the bridal makeup in tune with the pale pink and gold concept, using those pallettes on the eyes and a natural lip colour. Helen from Brides Personified allowed Nadia’s hair to curl loosely, lightly pinning a few curls in a relaxed and romantic up do, allowing Donna Crain’s blush pink hair piece to sparkle.
Allan McSween, our groom looked incredibly dapper in a navy suit and matching waistcoat from Hire 5. His blush pink tie, pocket square, (Hire 5) gold ring and cufflinks (Justin Duance) are a simple way to incorporate your groom within your wedding’s colour theme.
Similarly, if you’re concerned about the British weather on your wedding day, have no fear. Love Umbrella’s are your first stop, they have the most spectacular array of umbrellas! They kindly leant us a pale pink and navy heart shaped umbrella which added a perfect fun element to the day.
Our table set up was provided by Couvert Hire. On a long rectangular table, we allowed the décor to ooze elegance and opulence with navy sequin table runner, gold cutlery and charger plates, pink water glasses and gold rimmed wine glassware. Allow your colour theme to truly shine by using matching coloured glassware and linen. Jo from Browns Blooms and Balloons created beautiful floral centrepieces and teamed them with elegant Morrocan style lanterns. Interspersed amongst the floral arrangement were gold tea lights adding alternative levels and light to the décor.
The Sugared Saffron Cake Studio outdid themselves with the most beautiful blush pink four tiered circular cake, adorned with pink sugar flowers, gold leaves and monogram. Lastly it was finished with navy blue satin ribbon.
Suzanne Oddy designed a gorgeous bespoke stationery suite in pale pink, white and navy – allowing the colour concept to flow from invitation, to cake cutting.
The bridal shoot was captured by the ever talented Hannah Larkin photography and filmed by Jay Anderson.
