Bold and opulent midnight blue wedding inspiration

Today I am thrilled to share this stunning styled shoot encompassing bold and opulent midnight blue wedding inspiration at Glemham Hall.

Images were captured by Ayshea Goldberg Photography with the collaboration of a fabulous creative team.

Ayshea says of the shoot…


Back at the beginning of 2020 I organised a styled wedding photo shoot at Glemham Hall in Suffolk.

Glemham Hall is an Elizabethan stately home, set in around 300 acres of park land on the outskirts of the village of Little Glemham in Suffolk, England, and is a Grade I listed building.

The team there were holding their open day, so it was decided that it would be a fantastic opportunity for some of their recommended suppliers to come together and get a little creative.

Donna at Glemham had already designed a midnight theme, with a navy blue and metallic palette creating an air of bold decadence.

Modern elements such as the clear chairs and macrame details were combined with the classic timeless pieces in gold tones bringing the contemporary and vintage look together

The pretty stationery by Polly Pickle gives a beautiful insight to the styling of the day.

Stunning gowns by Wendy Makin, Catherine Parry and Kenneth Winston from Lavender and Jude give Brides an idea how different bridal looks and styles would work with the backdrop of the venue.

Victoria Bradfield worked with the vision and briefing to create statement eyes for the models, and Lorna absolutely rocked a right blue eye shadow.

Paired with a nude lip and a statement headpiece this look felt like it came straight from the 1920’s.

Chelsea of  C.L.Lydford hair design also created a slightly edgy hairstyle for model Carly who has a shaved style, which shows that you can be as individual on your wedding day as you usually are and it will look fantastic! There’s no need to conform to what is ‘bridal’ anymore.

The architecture of the building also played a huge part.

Glemham Halls staircase has the ‘WOW’ factor and this backdrop is a huge factor in many couples choosing the venue.

Florist Charlotte of Charlotte Staff Flowers created a dark and twisted fairytale display using branches, dreamy flowers, greenery and candles for an epic look.

Her other floral creations, both bouquets, and table arrangements were like oil paintings, and were real masterpieces and complimented amazing table styling by Banqueting Hire and chair covers by Extraorganza.

The venue had also been doing a lot of restyling of their venue and had a new little nook that just screamed speakeasy bar harking back to the parties of days gone by.

The amazing and specially designed wedding cake was created by Amelie’s Kitchen, and looked as equally beautiful as a centre piece on the grand piano as in the main ceremony hall too!

The lighting by Lighting: My Big Fat Wedding Disco just set everything off beautifully.

We really wanted to show couples several looks for their day to let their imagination run free with the palette whether that was timeless glamour or dark twisted fairytale or anything in between.

Overall this glorious midnight blue wedding inspiration shoot epitomises everything to love about a wedding day – style, romance, creativity and beauty.
