A Vision of Wilde Love…

The shoot depicts a black pair expending a comfortable afternoon at the hotel receiving ready for their intimate wedding supper at The Club, the hotel’s personal occasions area. It revels in that position wherever luxurious meets playful. I preferred to playfully showcase black love in a typically British aristocratic placing exactly where you could not typically hope to see it.

The Venue…

The Mayfair Townhouse loves the pleasure of the surprising and deviates from conventional anticipations. This was stored in mind at all times. 

The Details…

Oscar Wilde was not a romantic and this in alone added to the wit of the shoot and the total idea of it getting non-conventional. I took some traces from his do the job and included them into the wedding day invitation suite made by Velvet May well Styles, as very well as the marriage cake by Meera Will make, and the printed white and mirror cake tabletop.

Modern day Satisfies Traditional…

All through the approach, I was quite eager to blend the present day and the conventional. The tablescape, which is a wonderful distinction of great dining versus a backdrop of contemporary, architectural floristry made by Mos London, ties into the thought of the unforeseen.

Bringing in some custom to the really feel of the scape are the tasseled menus with the handwritten calligraphy in white ink by Velvet Could Styles. The wonderful hand-painted mural of Green Park was a perfect backdrop for this warm, opulent yet pared-back again wedding day evening meal table. 

The Cake…

Fashion & Attire…

From a trend point of view, I needed the bride to be daring with modern-day, architectural items that still felt grand and labored with the magnificent environment. The voluminous soon after-social gathering appears to be like ended up the best complete to a stylish collection of contemporary, bridal parts. It was significant for the groom to be dapper but in an understated, modern day way. This was accomplished with a simple navy fit and velvet bowtie, as very well as a straightforward, tweed eco-friendly fit by Abitto.
