Gold & Glamour by Something Blue Weddings

When Gemma Sutton asked me to be part of this Gold & Glamour styled wedding photoshoot at Botley’s Mansion I was delighted. It was the most incredible shoot to work on with some of London’s top wedding professionals.

My brief was to create a glamorous gold tablescape for the shoot. A gold wedding can be chic and stylish but it can so easily become tacky! I really wanted to incorporate the vintage glamour trends which are so prominent in fashion at the moment with sequins being the leading aspect of the trend.

Something Blue Gold Shoot

To create a stunning table I’m a big believer in levels, you need to mix heights to have the wow impact in my opinion. The large floral centrepiece from Jay Archer dominated the centre and I wanted to bring in some unusual shapes to create some interest to the table. I did this by contrasting the modern hexagonal candle holders from Classic Crockery with the timeless gold candlesticks and vintage table name frame which I sourced from eBay. The cake from Willow & Bloom reflected the opulence of the venue perfectly with modern hues of gold glitter to tie in with the table. Calligraphy always adds a touch of glamour and the wonderful Judy Broad agreed to create a suite of stationary and escort cards to complement the look. Even more delightful is that it’s also featured in the February / March edition of You & Your Wedding Magazine.
