It’s Friiiiday :)) and it’s only right that we end the week with some high octane bridal glamour right? Well this gorgeous 1950’s, Hollywood Glamour shoot oozes all that. Set in the ultra swanky venue that is, The Connaught and showcasing the beautiful work of many talented suppliers, this inspiration is bound to bring out the Veronica Lake in us all. It does me!
Perfect Events chose the opulent splendour of the luxurious Connaught Hotel in London’s prestigious Mayfair, as the perfect backdrop, to marry wonderfully with their theme. Set amidst truly breathtaking scenery, ornate décor, sublime crystal chandeliers, the shoot is a display of wedding’s must haves for all brides wanting to take a step back in time to glamour’s golden age; a time reminiscent of iconic movie stars and unadulterated elegance.
Taking inspiration from the popular red lipsticks commonly worn in the 1950s and the words of style icon Audrey Hepburn ‘There is a shade of red for every woman’, Perfect Events chose a rich palette of colours with red tones; plum, dark red, raspberry and fuchsia, perfectly showcased by the pink ombre of beautiful blooms by Wild About.
Perfectly styled Veronica Lake ‘esque’ hair waves, accentuated by immaculate makeup by Alison Cameron. Heavenly shoes by Aruna Seth wonderfully complimented by the ‘Babette’ dress a softly layered skirt, cap sleeved embroidered bodice by Bruce Oldfield. Also featured is a delicate lace applique and satin gown ‘Angelina’ by Sassi Holford worn with peep toe sling back shoes by Gina.
The ‘Coco’ Chanel 2.55 handbag inspired wedding cake and dessert table full of exquisitely decorated treats by Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium makes for even more spectacular delicious eye candy.
With photography by Bandele Zuberi and filming by Cinematographer Deneemotion every detail captured exudes glamour in epic proportions to delight and inspire all courtesy of Perfect Events and an amazing team of vendors.
Ladies & gents, please do leave the talented team some love :)
