Luxury Styled Wedding Shoot in London

A few weeks ago, I collaborated in a Luxe styled shoot, organised by the lovely Mannuela from Florissa Designs. Her vision was to portray a luxury wedding that was colourful yet elegant, and fun yet undoubtedly high-end. As you will see in the images below, Mannuela's attention to detail is second-to-none.

This blog is, unashamedly, a feast for the eyes. I hope it provides you with some magnificent inspiration and ideas. And, yes, you can incorporate bolder colours into your luxe wedding!



The Venue

South Place Hotel is licensed for weddings and civil ceremonies. It is just a few minutes walk from both Liverpool Street and Moorgate stations, which makes it the perfect choice for your Chic City Wedding. This is a boutique hotel that is as luxurious as it is lively, a deft mixture of the contemporary City, London’s most historic quarters and the achingly cool East End.


The Flowers

The flowers certainly took centre-stage in this set-up. They were absolutely beautiful. I just love the use of colour and foliage - so luxe and jaw-droppingly gorgeous!


The Bouquet

The bride's bouquet was just as breathtaking ..


The Stationery

Sophie, from Vintage Fleur Designs, captured the luxe floral theme perfectly with this stationery.


The Dresses

We tried two different looks for the day, both as elegant as each other.

The Hair Accessories

Again, two different looks.


The Details

The minute I saw these chairs, I fell in love ... swoon ...

Unique bridal image
Great opportunity for an unique photo shot.

It's all in the detail ... co-ordinating crockery, cutlery and decorative elements pulled this look together. I love the sophisticated ambience created by the staggered heights of the floating tea lights, and the droplets from the flowers arrangements are oh-so-lush.


The Cake

Naturally, the cake needed to fit in with Mannuela's vision for the day and her brief was 'colourful flowers and foliage in pinks, peach and green'.
