Today I am thrilled to share this enchanting Beauty and the Beast inspired wedding styled shoot.
Inspired by the movie that captures your soul, pulls at your heart strings and is all your Disney dreams come true, elements are drawn to bring the magic to life in the Wedding setting.
The images were shot at the stunning Leigh Court, a Grade ll listed mansion set in beautiful parkland in Bristol.
Images were captured by JD Photography with an incredible collaborative team.
Tracy Pallari shares her recollections of the shoot…
“We are a South West based team of award winning suppliers who regularly get together to plan and create styled shoots which let us run loose with our creative ideas and themes!”
“Leigh Court was the perfect setting for our Beauty and the Beast inspired wedding styled shoot with their sweeping stair case reflecting so much of the iconic scene in Tale as Old as Time.”
“We very much wanted to capture the romance and classic look of the film and Leigh Court was the perfect venue.”
“it is a truly magnificent building with its baroque detailing, huge windows and very grand ballroom.”
“When planning a wedding its important to incorporate your own personalities and hobbies and things you love to do as a couple which is why we chose books to be used on the table which Belle loved.
Also on the table, we used vintage clocks and the centre pieces were grand candelabras filled with red roses, peonies, orchids, exotic red and gold gloriosa lilies, mixed with complementary pink spray roses.”
“The Carmen rose bouquet carried by Belle in the shoot, represented the red rose which features throughout the film.”
“The bouquet is made up of lots of individual rose petals stitched together to form one larger rose and this was finished off with a gold wire collar, book page petals and gold braid.”
“Drawing from the film we choose a gold candelabra centrepiece which was filled with red roses, peonies, orchids, exotic red and gold gloriosa lilies, teamed up with complementary pink spray roses.”
“Smaller gold vases and a bowls were filled with fruit and flowers of deep reds and pinks to give an opulent look and feel, and of course the obligatory single red rose in a glass dome completed the look”
“The cake was a classic and elegant four tiered creation decorated with gold leaf, ribbon and roses.”
“The swags on the cake represented the swags on belle’s dress and the gold leaf and sequins show the grandeur of the palace and the beauty and elegance of occasion. Of course the red rose represent the rose in the jar.”
“For Belle’s makeup look, in keeping with the theme, Tracy used eye colours in shades of golds and bronze, with a classic red lip colour called ‘Love Story’ from specialist bridal lipstick company Love, Honour and be True and created lawless skin using Airbase airbrush make up.”
“We used two different hair looks for each dress, one a softly waved romantic half up/down style pinned around the filigree gold and crystal tiara and the second, a more more formal curled style featuring fresh cerise and red rosebuds.”
“Instead of the iconic yellow and gold dress we updated Belles look with subtle tones of champagne and gold; one an a-line strapless, rushed bodice featuring a bias draped satin belt, the other a more dramatic and ‘regal’ style with ruffles and layers and a sweeping train.”
Loved the original Beauty and The Beast and the new film is EVERYTHING so am in love with all the subtle nods to this captivating tale.
Thank you so much to the collaborative team for sharing their creativity.
