Our Autumn Romance styled wedding photo shoot, that has been featured on Chic Vintage Brides, has also been featured on the main page of the Aisle Society website!! We have been very blessed to share this special styled shoot with you. Enjoy!!
Today’s shoot sees us say a sad goodbye to Fall for another year in the most fabulously creative way possible. Inspired by one of my favourite films, and featuring a black wedding cake, a truly unusual engagement ring and not one but two beautiful brides, this editorial is nothing short of magical….
By way of an introduction, here is photographer Keli from Shiny Penny Studios….. “I love the autumn season! I love the variety of colors on the trees and plants, the crisp air, and this sense of magic I always feel. I also love the movie “Practical Magic”, so we wanted to evoke a sense of the film with a nod to the season with a color palette of black and deep emerald greens with touches of copper, to make our own magic.
With so much gorgeous foliage in and around the Spring Hill Historic estate, we added simple floral details. The lush bridal bouquet featured creamy white roses, orange lily, hypericum berries, coral dahlias, fiery red alstroemeria, Italian ruscus, and hints of lavender.
We also used Italian ruscus, large pine cones, and teasels on the dining table, to add a natural element to the strong color palette.
Our table was layered with black and emerald green linens. The black vintage chairs are part of the Spring Hill Historic Home estate, and are replicas of the original 200 year old dining room chairs. The table settings were eclectic, with copper charger plates, vintage green glass plates, and dark green napkins that matched the tablecloth. The vintage silver cutlery also belongs to the Spring Hill estate. The glassware included modern black goblets, and vintage cut green glasses.
This styled shoot featured an eclectic mix of vintage and modern gowns. Our bridal gowns were very different in style, as are our models, Sammy and Sarah. Sammy wore a beautiful modern ivory lace gown with a beaded empire waist and bodice, cap sleeves and court train. In her hair, we added a lovely beaded headband and she wore a vintage Art Deco necklace and earrings, which added lots of sparkle.
Sarah donned a stunning vintage gown from the 1960’s. It was an ivory chiffon over satin crepe gown, with a rosette trim at the waist, and court length train. Soft ruffles adorned the portrait neckline, the long fitted sleeves, and the front of the gown. Around her wrist, we added a vintage necklace as a bracelet, with deep green cabochon stones.
The gorgeous cake was a tall three-tiered delight! Placed on a vintage copper cake stand, the cake was covered in dark fondant, to match our color scheme. The bottom layer of the cake was covered in a dark forest green fondant, while the top two layers were adorned with simple, elegant black fondant. The only decorations on the cake were a copper colored hoop with lush white, burgundy, and coral blooms, and a script “Mrs & Mrs” cake topper. “
Isn’t it fabulous?! I just love the light and the pretty palette is so romantic!
