The Lost Gardens of Heligan, with its network of flora-filled gardens and magical woodland to explore, is the perfect setting for a colour-led celebration. Inspired by the Pantone Colour of the Year, Viva Magenta, this styled shoot blends a bold and beautifully romantic palette with a fabulous sense of fun.
It is the floristry that brilliantly carries the theme. From the bouquet, a vivid cluster of carnations, ranunculus and anthurium in shades of soft pink through to deep red, to the installation of dried blooms framed with pink palm leaves, the florals pop with playful romance. Details such as the heart motifs, lollipops and balloons as well as the bold floral prints and contemporary typography enhance the fun factor.
The light, chiffon sleeves and soft skirts of the bridal gown, together with pearl jewels and a relaxed updo, adds easy elegance in this beautifully versatile venue.
