Wedding Venue Cornwall
The serene playfulness of ballet interweaves with the sophisticated beauty of Burncoose House's elegant makeover
Following the makeover of Burncoose House, part of the Caerhays Estate, the majestic Georgian house is now open for private weddings, with its beauty showcased on a recent shoot.
“On entering the house, I was almost rendered speechless by its exquisite elegant beauty, and beautiful light,” says photographer Khalile Siddiqui, who organised a styled photoshoot of the venue near Cornwall’s Redruth.
With the pure elegance of the surroundings lending itself to a ballet-themed shoot, Khalile set to work gathering some of the region’s best suppliers to co-ordinate a photo shoot worthy of the stage. The magnolia-lined driveway and 38 acres of mature woodland gardens gives a hint to the grandeur inside. Cut-glass crystal bottles sit atop solid oak tables, weighty and grand, while a softness is introduced with flickering teal candles and a gilt-edged cake.
The element of ballet dancing brings a gracefulness to the shoot, while also providing a sense of drama and performance. Stepping away from overly posed shots, here the brides are dancing, performing, enjoying, and embodying a serene grace. Sophistication is sublimely weaved throughout the shoot, from the lace tablecloths and subtle hair and make-up to the poise of the brides.
