Today I am thrilled to share this stunning Medieval Inspired Wedding shoot at the Lost Village of Dode with beautiful seasonal tones.
Lucy of Caro Events says of this incredible Medieval inspired wedding shoot…
Images were captured by The Lost Village of Dode is a truly unique wedding venue tucked away in the Kent countryside; it exudes magic and history and is the perfect place for a wedding with a difference.
It is for these reasons that it was chosen as the setting for this intimate medieval wedding shoot.
We wanted it to have a rich and luxurious feel, but also be realistic for couples to achieve..
We opted for dark red and gold colours throughout, with the tables, thrones and candlesticks being provided by The Little Wedding Warehouse, and A Touch of Vintage supplying the tableware and glassware.
Everything complemented each other beautifully and created the ideal set-up for our wedding feast.
We wanted the cake to be centre-stage on the table, and The Cake Witch baked and decorated the sumptuous four-tier naked cake, adorned with fresh fruit and flowers.
On the table surrounding the cake, was an array of fruit, candles and foliage, to give it a genuine, rustic look.
The flowers, consisted of vivid deep red roses and mixed foliage, were provided by Moody Blooms.
Flora Dora Designs hand wrote all the stationery using gold ink, which really highlighted the luxurious tones we were aiming for, with the traditional calligraphy giving it an authentic edge.
The red velvet ribbons embroidered with ‘bride’ and ‘groom’ were the perfect finishing touch for the tables, courtesy of Extra Special Touch.
Yours Truly Bridal House supplied the stunning gown, which looked incredible on the model, Libby, with its long, flowing sleeves and intricate detail.
Libby also wore a delicate pair of lace boots by House of Elliot.
The fantastic veil, cape, crowns and jewellery were sent to us by Peacock+Pearl, and they enhanced the colours and the medieval theme whilst also adding a slightly modern edge to the looks.
The red veil and gold crown were the showstopper pieces, but we also featured the white cape and silver crown as an alternative look for the ceremony shots.
The make-up look was created by Kerry Ann Wells Makeup Artist and the hair was styled by Hannah Monk Hair and Makeup Artist, both of which were modern takes on the medieval theme but complemented it beautifully.
Well Suited loaned us the grey tweed suit, to give our model, Caleb, a contemporary look, contrasting the medieval attire he also wore which was provided by Fancy Pants Emporium. They also provided the red velvet cape, worn by Libby.
To emphasise the medieval theme, we invited Joe’s Bows Country Sports to join us, with their magnificent birds of prey and very entertaining archery.
They definitely added something extra to the shoot and would be ideal for someone planning a medieval-themed event.
