Elegance and Romance for a Something Blue inspired Wedding with rustic and French elements

Today I am thrilled to  focus on the elegance and romance of this beautiful Something Blue inspired Wedding with rustic and French elements.

Images were captured by Peter Rear of  Filmatography with planning and co-ordination by La Fete.

Charlotte Ricard of La Fete says of this something blue inspired wedding shoot…


For our shoot we wanted a fresh aesthetic, with a different take on rustic chic.

Bearing this in mind the Lost Orangery at Euridge House was chosen for its variety of settings: outdoor, indoor, lakeside, historical, with its whimsical yet elegant feel.

There was a distinctly French air to the shoot, with references to Marie Antoinette’s Petit Trianon, through the choice of fabrics, cascading wild flowers, vintage and intricately decorated tableware and overall decadence of the venue.

While blue was central to the colour palette, lilacs, creams and greens, were also  used to provide balance without one overpowering the other tying in all the different elements, from cake and flowers to stationery and bridesmaids’ dresses.

In order to avoid falling into the conventional elegant rustic aesthetic we used more modern and trendy elements such as geode place names,  neon signs, and smoke bombs to create contrast through the styling.

For florals the palette was kept all blue with hydrangea, rose, sweetpea, scabiosa, spanish moss, smoke bush and statise beautifully put together by Zita Elze.

The gorgeous cake and desserts were made by MonAnnie Cakes who wanted to go distinctly untraditional with a trio of deep blue drip cakes, accented with caneles and profiteroles.

We wanted our couple to truly reflect a modern couple, and it was important to make the couple stand out from the blue décor in a modern, hip style with the Groom styled with a man bun and velvet jacket by Oliver Brown , with natural hair and sleek, minimalistic  flowing dresses for our Bride by Halfpenny London .

Make up by was kept dewy and cleaning, only enhancing the natural features of each model created by Natalie Morton.

Stationery by London Wedding Stationery was designed with a fresh but simple look using delicate flowers and opulent gold foil to capture the shoot style and decadence of the venue

It was also key to include bridesmaids in the shoot reflective of their importance on the big day adorned in gowns in vibrant blue by Motee Maids.

Similarily we were keen to incorporate a dog as more and more couples are including their pets on their big day, even if it’s just for photos., and Auguste, an amazing English Bulldog was the perfect model.

We wanted to show not only how dogs ( or any pet)  can be photographed with their masters, but also comfortable accessories such as floral collars that tie them in with the ceremony/party theme.
