Spellbinding Georgia Castle Wedding Styled Shoot

High on luxury and spellbinding beauty comes a Georgia castle wedding styled shoot by Viridian Images Photography that blends the flavor of an English Tudor with all the opulence of a fairy tale, complete with a 5-foot cake that will wow our readers. A team of talented professionals drew inspiration from the beautiful architecture of Bisham Manor with its manicured formal gardens, just south of Atlanta, and a desire to pay homage to its timeless elegance.

Abounding Beauty

Not every bride and groom can say that they got married in a castle like a fairytale prince and princess. Lucky for us this styled shoot was set at a beautiful and majestic venue that is available for brides-to-be planning their dream day. Each detail was taken into consideration to bring this to life, from the bespoken stationary, exquisite couture gown and vintage lace veil, to the luscious floral which were tied with plant dyed silk ribbons. Embroidered lace linens and vintage heirloom china in blush, gold and ivory adorned each place setting. The regal wedding cake created by Cakes by La’Meeka with its cascading flowers made of gum pastry spilling over each tier was the “icing” of the shoot.

Couture Gowns

Rodica from RL Couture Designs provided the custom gowns including the flower girl and junior bridesmaid. The wedding dress is a custom design beautiful ivory silk gazar with French lace, feet to flare with a cathedral long veil which is all hand-sewn in French alencon lace on a blush net.

The little flower girl dresses also are custom designed by RL Couture. Made of silk shantung with organza overlay and a blush organza sash, she used her delicately handcrafted hairpieces as a finishing touch.

Classic Black Tuxedo

Miguel Wilson Wedding Collection titled “Because It’s His Day Too!” outfitted the groom. Inspiring men to look their very best on their wedding day, and enjoy the same excitement in getting dressed as the bride. No man should dress like he did for his prom when getting married. A classic black tuxedo is the most sophisticated, elegant and classy look a man can wear to a formal occasion, representing great tradition.

England’s Fine China

Vintage English Teacup brought vintage fine china imported from England. She chose pieces that reflected the time and style of the building. Featuring gold accents, her place settings, cups and saucers glowed in the setting sun on their alfresco tablescapes. She felt her pieces reflected a “Downton Abbey” feel complimenting the English Tudor. BBJ Linens used The Cameo Mystique style for the cake table. He described it as a modern lace sequin – unique in every way and the selected base color “lagoon” distinctly showed the detail of the cut out due to the extreme color contrast showcasing the magnificent 5-foot wedding cake. The Gold Grandeur – also a lace type overlay with spun metallic thread and ribbons of satin paired with the Unique Nile color which has blue and green flattering the pool with it’s elegant fountain feature used for the table setting. The Ivory Luxe is an elegant fabric featuring both texture and metallic embossing that fit the sweetheart table setting perfectly.

Vintage Styling

As an added touch they secured the angelic strings of the harp to play softly while they moved about creating this magical shoot. To complete this Georgia shoot a 1920s Mercedes SSK vintage car was featured on the lawn with the castle as a backdrop.
