What a special shoot! Set in the classical setting of Prestwold Hall, this shoot is the perfect mix of neutrals and peaches in the styling and traditionally colourful Asian wedding attire allowing the ruby reds and striking golds to really shine.
Captured, in her signature fine art style, by Sophie May Photo, the results really do speak for themselves! Super romantic, beautifully elegant and laden with fusion wedding inspiration; we just love this shoot!

What was the concept for this shoot?
This concept is a showcase of East meets West in a luxury fusion style rather than fully traditional. The theme “Promise I Make To You” originates from the rituals of seven vows which is performed in a Hindu wedding where the bride and groom go around the sacred fire seven times.
The mood was to reminisce those vows and there is no better place than Prestwold Hall which is a beautiful stately home in the heart of Leicestershire. This is a Grade 1 listed home which has been the seat of the Packe family where the architecture is of neoclassical style and beautiful gardens reflecting the classical symmetry of the house and looking at the rising parkland. For this venue, the S-Type Jaguar was the perfect choice as it was oozing modern elegance.
The womenswear was selected based on a darker pink colour for the main ceremony where the details of the embroidery made it different from the traditional red bridal. For the reception, focus was on the lighter colour of coral. The menswear focused on a lighter tone of ivory and embroidery was not heavy on the whole attire whilst for the reception, the focus was darker but with subtle embroidery which made it stand out.
The Coral, Soft Peach, Ivory and lighter tone palette created this dreamy luxurious look through the tablescape, chairs, centrepieces, stationery, florals, cake, macaroons, damask Linen and embroidered napkin. For the cake, David Austin and Avalanche Roses were the inspiration behind as they are both specific varieties which are popular with Brides. We also used the sugar flower where each petal was hand cut, sculpted and dusted instead of fresh flowers to create a different visual experience. The soft wooden peach charger plate was enhanced with the damask ivory linen which transformed the beautiful room.
To announce the arrival of the bride and groom, we used the violinist who started on a Bollywood theme mixed with pop music.
The whole shoot and concept felt original, beautiful and romantic and was captured beautifully by the photographer.
