New Continental Hotel

Modern romance at New Continental Hotel

A Victorian hotel, vintage decor and classic style combines for a wedding replete with timeless elegance


Situated in the heart of Plymouth's city by the sea, the Grade II listed New Continental hotel provides the perfect backdrop for this fabulous styled shoot: a beautiful blending of vintage and modern elements to create a touch of contemporary glamour.

The New Continental is a classic space to say "I do", presenting couples with a chic setting courtesy of a layering of neutral tones spliced with opulent shades including midnight blues that are picked up and accentuated by the shoot's reception styling. Its sense of old world charm is captured by the luxe tableware: decadent glassware and gold charger plates sit alongside ornate candlesticks and high centrepieces to elevate the scene. Meanwhile, the crisp white table linens ensure a clean and contemporary contrast, with the addition of soft green tones through the candlesticks, cake, and smattering of foliage freshening the look further while also lending an eye-catching modern edge.

The floristry continues its role with the striking, yet subtle white and green bridal bouquet and towering aisle-end arrangements that frame the couple who echo this vision of modern vintage style. His slate grey three-piece suit with blush tie and buttonhole is as understated as it is dapper, while the bride's strapless sweetheart gown with sheer off-the-shoulder sleeves, nude peep-toe heels, elegant updo and delicate jewellery further reflect the sophisticated, on-trend aesthetic.

Stationery featuring simple botanical motifs and a sprinkling of fairy lights add to the hotel's allure without detracting from its bold furnishings and chandelier-clad ceilings in what can only be described as a wedding with modern-meets-classic magic.
