Good Morning Lovely Peeps. I hope you are all having a great week so far.
We have a beautiful shoot to share with you all today. Captured by Lucy Davenport Photography and featuring a very impressive line up of wedding suppliers (seriously – you should check all of these out) the shoot took place at Sezincote House, a breathtaking Indian Palace which offers a very unique and pretty impressive backdrop for the shoot.
Those of you who have been following Festival Brides for a while will know that India is my favourite country so when this shoot landed in my inbox there was no doubt I was going to feature it! I just love how Lucy and the team have used their location as inspiration to create some gorgeous imagery. The homage to India is subtle but clear through the textures and colours of the bridal apparel and especially in the flowers. Flower garlands are huge in India, you will never find a tuk tuk without one, so seeing the way Fiona Perry has created a garland for each setting is fab and that floral chandelier – well just you wait until you see it. It is amazing and I want one!
This shoot has some wonderful ideas, especially when it comes to your decor, so get ready to be inspired…..
An Indian Palace and A Soft Colour Palette….
Words by Lucy Davenport
Sezincote House and Gardens really is a hidden gem right in the heart of the Cotswolds. The drive up to the house alone is enough to sweep you off your feet – you can spot the top of the 200 year old Mongul Indian palace.
Wedding planner Kerry Poulter and photographer Lucy Davenport brought this shoot together and magically collaborating for the first time. They wanted to keep a soft colour palette so that the venue could really shine through – instead they introduced various textures. The dress designers used all provided varied fabrics and muted colour tones which were echoed in the make up look and whimsical hair.
Amazing Floral Pieces….
Florals were key, especially for the curved orangery, as you would expect an abundance of beauty. Fiona Perry created some incredible key features, the cascading wearable floral piece as well as the elephant decoration were breathtaking, and the addition of the floral shade over the styled table added detail at a height.
