Halloween brides, this is a styled shoot just for you! I recently collaborated with, among others, Ashley Gerrity Photography and Creative Eventology to create this romantic scene. We got to put it all together at Knowlton Mansion, a gorgeous Victorian country estate with a conservatory, 13 acres of gardens, and a wine cellar.
The shoot had a very gothic feel to it–deep, rich colors and jewel tones. The tables were covered in candles and an eclectic collection of bottles and bell jars held some beautiful floral arrangements. The aesthetic was inspired by a poem by Lord Byron.
I created menus, table numbers, and escort cards for the shoot. Gold made an appearance on this stationery, as did burgundy and black. The invitation envelopes were lined with gold glitter, and the escort cards were attached to gold-dipped black feathers.
A large part of our inspiration came from the line, “all that’s best of dark and light”. Our bride model wore the light and airy Wing gown from BHLDN. Make Me Glam and Up Your Do styled her hair and makeup–a dramatic bouffant updo with red lips.
