The Look of Luxe
Wedding styling: classic white laced with gold
A white wedding with accents of gold creates a glamorous picture at a grand country estate
A white wedding is elegant, luxurious and timeless. It’s everything you want a chic country house wedding to be. And, captured against the dreamlike climes of Orchardleigh Estate, this styled shoot showcases how a white wedding can be warm and inviting yet modern and glamorous.
“I wanted to take a classic theme and add a little injection of colour whilst still keeping the overall mood luxurious,” explains photographer and stylist Jen Shoubridge of Jennifer Jane Photography. “Adding some subtle accents of gold is a great way of bringing the warmth of colour to your day while keep the overall aesthetic and ambience timeless.”
A stationery suite featuring gold foil, calligraphy and bespoke wax seals sets the elegant tone, while the floral installations – luscious clusters of white signature roses and hydrangeas sitting upon tall gold stands – makes for a luxurious and captivating tablescape against the historic, foliage-cloaked walls of the stately home. “White plates were paired with gold cutlery and gold-rimmed glassware which looked striking against the simplicity of the crisp white linen,” says Jen.
Echoing the splendour and palette, the cake is an intricate vision of gold leaf and exquisite floral and lace detailing, displayed alongside a variety of delectable and finely crafted sweet delights, from cake pops to iced cookies.
Such luxe styling demands a special dress – and, accessorised with a bespoke, handcrafted gold crown, this shoulder-skimming ivory ball gown evokes a sense of regal romance with a modern twist. The groom’s classic black-tie ensemble perfectly complements the elegant and enduring appeal of this timelessly luxe aesthetic.
