Today I am thrilled to share some stunning seasonal micro wedding inspiration with orange, teal and gold tones at at Lauderdale House.
The concept of the shoot was to provide beautiful inspiration for couples in how to create something really special for their day even if that is a more intimate situation than originally planned.
The colour palette was ideally suited to an Autumnal wedding but can be breath taking all year around.
The year of 2020 was a very alternative year for the wedding industry, and to all of us in many different ways.
Who would have anticipated weddings would be withheld due to a full-blown global pandemic, or severely limited in guest sizes?
But we decided to spin the situation with positive energy and create some magical seasonal micro wedding inspiration to inspire couples.
The setting of the shoot was the beautiful Lauderdale House, a historic house, now run as an arts and education centre, based in Waterlow Park, Highgate in north London.
It hosts an extensive programme of performances, workshops, outreach projects and exhibitions, as well as being an elegant, romantic and flexible wedding venue.
The pretty stationery suite by Sweet Ophelia gives us a glorious insight into the day with stunning invitation with watercolour florals, and gold gilding on the edge of the place cards and menus adding an air of luxury and glamour.
Our models were real life love birds Seffy and Chris whose connection and emotions would certainly not be the same if they were not so in love with each other!
Our Bride wears an incredible mermaid style gown by Maggie Sottero with an elegant see through back, lace details and off shoulder sleeves, accessorised by a gold tailor made tiara all supplied by Gillian Roberts Bridal.
Orange and gold formed the basis of glowing makeup created by Dorota Wójcik Sułkowska and jewellery was by krausz Jewellery.
Clare Oliver Floristry provided strikingly colourful florals from dahlias, roses, chrysanthemums, aramanths and eucalyptus for the styling and table scape, and also in the ceremony space with a flower lined aisle and a beautiful floral adorned gold arc with lanterns to highlight.
For the tablescape teal was used as a base colour, with linens by Evertex and the colour palette reinforced in the florals arrangements, candles, gold cutlery and candle holders.
To bring the inside styling to a close there was a magnificent 2 tier cake with gold edging and floral adornment from Bespoke Bakes.
As well as the interior of the setting the shoot focuses on the outside space too, and offers some inspiration for when the weather is inclement
The autumn of 2020 turned out to be one of the wettest autumns in years, and while all the details of the day can be planned one thing never guaranteed, and you have the choice to find a window when it clears or embrace what the elements can throw at you.
Bad weather doesn’t need to defeat you, and with simple props such as white or colourful umbrellas (however the mood or your personality takes you) makes those gorgeous captured memories no less romantic .
Thanks so much to the team for sharing this gorgeous shoot providing such pretty micro wedding inspiration for couples getting wed in these Pandemic times.
Small can still be still be incredibly beautiful.
