Bouquet & Bells together with Tanya from Tanya Flannagan Photography co-coordinated this opulent Bridgerton-inspired styled shoot. As a result of the hit TV series, Bridgerton, the regency wedding theme is on the rise and we wanted to create a shoot to showcase our twist on the trend. It was important to us to pay meticulous details to every element of the shoot, and our aim was to execute the theme in a way that the small details all came together beautifully. The colour scheme was based around pastel colours with particular focus on peaches and pinks with a pop of sky blue.
The shoot was held at Hawkstone Hall and Gardens, a Grade 1-listed building nestled within the hills of the rolling Shropshire countryside. Their ‘Saloon’ dining room, intimate ceremony room and picturesque outdoor space burst with opulence and grandeur, making them the ideal location. Elizabeth Josh Films produced a stunning short film and captured the day spectacularly.
Surrey-based dressmaker Felicity West Macott provided three handmade gowns for the shoot. A peach gown with bardot neckline and corset back was the start of the show, as Felicity had made it bespoke for the shoot. Other gowns featured a long pink ombré train with bell sleeves, and a floral embroidered jumpsuit. Star and Leaf provided a selection of handmade veils, paired beautifully with a bejewelled headpiece by Six Penny Bride. A pair of kitten heel white lace shoes with pink bows finished the look. The model’s hair was styled by Bella Amore Hair Salon, and the makeup was kept classic by Made up by Cathryn. Diamond drop earrings and beautiful rings were provided by London Victorian Ring Co. The groom wore a grey tail suit from Bill Child Formal Wear paired with light grey slim tie.
An abundance of florals were provided by Ginger Lily Florist in pink and peach tones with foliage. The bouquet was big and wild in a waterfall style. Wild Meadow Weddings and Ginger Lily collaborated on the table decor, opting for a long banquet style with blue linen from Coloured Linen Hire. A range of gold vases complete with crockery and goblet glassware made the Saloon fit for a regal banquet. Classic stationery by White Orchid Print and Design finished it off beautifully.
A pale blue four-tier cake with white icing detail in a baroque style was created by Susan from Elizabeth Anna Cake Design. It stood tall on an elegant white cake stand, surrounded by a range of delicious accompaniments including marshmallows, doughnuts, meringues and more, also made by Susan. The real start of the show was Kaiser, a Shire horse fully dressed for the occasion and pulling black open-top carriage courtesy of Huddart Heavy Horses.
