This concept is a showcase of East meets West in a luxury fusion style, focusing on the post-ceremony moments where the couple have some cherished time alone. We also have a stunning reception, with soft and subtle tones, we love this beautiful and dreamy style.
Dooshi, Tes Moments says…
The theme ‘Promise I Make To You’ originates from the rituals of seven vows which is performed in a Hindu wedding where the bride and groom walk around the sacred fire seven times.
We wanted to capture the essence of those vows and there is no better place than Prestwold Hall which is a beautiful stately home in the heart of Leicestershire. This is a Grade I listed home where the architecture is of neoclassical style, and the beautiful gardens reflect the classical symmetry of the house, looking at the rising parkland. For this venue, the S-Type Jaguar was the perfect choice as it was oozing modern elegance.
The conservatory, dining area and the outside of the house were the main parts which were used for this shoot as they all had a different character, elegance and beauty.
We chose a darker pink colour for our bride’s gown for the main ceremony, where the details of the embroidery made it different from the traditional red bridal. For the reception – a lighter colour of coral. For our groom we focused on a lighter tone of ivory with subtle embroidery, and at the reception a change to a dramatic, dark attire which contrasted beautifully with the coral gown. For the jewellery, fine diamonds were used as they complemented the outfits. In terms of hair and makeup, we went for flowing Hollywood curls and natural make up.
The coral, soft peach, ivory and lighter toned palette created this dreamy luxurious look through the tablescape, chairs, centrepieces, stationery, florals, cake, macarons, damask linen and embroidered napkins. For the cake, David Austin and Avalanche Roses were used as they are both specific varieties which are popular with couples.
We also used the sugar flower where each petal was hand cut, sculpted and dusted instead of fresh flowers to create a different visual experience. The soft wooden peach charger plate was enhanced with the damask ivory linen which transformed the beautiful room. To announce the arrival of the bride and groom, we used the violinist who started on a Bollywood theme mixed with pop music.
The whole shoot and concept felt original, beautiful and romantic and was captured beautifully by the photographer.
My advice to couples is create those moments which are yours to cherish forever through pictures and your guests experience by infusing your personality and culture together.
