Inspired by a soft pastel blue palette, a team of Essex wedding suppliers wanted to create inspiration for couples planning intimate spring wedding receptions.
The shoot organised by Hannah, owner of Hannah Clare Hair and Make Up Artist and was held at Hylands House, a Grade II* neo-classical villa situated within the Hylands Estate in Chelmsford, Essex. The house and its beautiful surroundings were the perfect setting for this classic, modern wedding inspiration. The light and airy wedding photography was expertly captured by Essex wedding photographer, Whitney Lloyd Photography.
Hannah selected local wedding professionals who offered the very finest of wedding services. The team working on styling the luxury wedding venue, focused on creating and showcasing those all important finishing touches. From bespoke cocktails to exquisite bridal accessories; luxury place settings with opulent stationery; to a very grand four tiered wedding cake, styled alongside classically beautiful hair and makeup, timeless bridal wear and stylish grooms attire.
An intimate reception was styled by wedding stylist, Victoria (Party Squared) in the period interior of the house. The shoot took place in the Terrace Room and included a head table for six laid with beautiful floor-length table cloth and soft lightweight cotton table runner, layered place settings with luxury glass charger plates and gold cutlery, all from the Party Squared Hire Collection. Each place setting had its own wedding breakfast menu and place card tied with silk ribbon, both created by Lydia Packham Calligraphy.
The Wilde Flower Studio created three beautifully textured floral arrangements inspired by the pastel spring colour palette, with a variety of textural foliage and country garden flowers to complement the event space décor. The table was decorated with two low urn arrangements and a larger pedestal arrangement placed on a luxe gold plinth stand to one side of the top table.
A magnificent four tier wedding cake handmade by The Couture Baker was displayed on a small round cake table. The cake was styled on a cut glass cake stand inside a gold twin hoop cake stand and decorated with layered lines and crystal candle holders, all from the Party Squared Styling Collection.
The shoot was a huge success and the imagery has been featured in this month's edition of Essex Life Magazine.
