Rich bold wedding colors of a glamorous French baroque inspired styled shoot graces our page today and it will melt your heart with its amazing beauty. The high elegance of this ambient setting encompasses a sense of grandeur at the Walton Hall in London. A magnificent British hotel with great history complete with a long sweeping driveway, stained glass windows and an on-site lake and chapel. Inspired by an era synonymous with sumptuous colors and lux elements, the French baroque scene blends the rich bold velvet tones of Bordeaux shades, decadent green and opulent gold to create a modern day wedding look. Take a cue from creative director Dee Chappell of Debonair Venue Styling on how dark details can be infused for a twist on a modern wedding day with a gorgeous old world feel. All beautifully captured through the lens of Karen Massey Photography.
French inspired menus along with a French baroque artist inspired the dramatic tablescape. The team utilized unexpected details like gold antique books, pomegranates and gold artichokes to add to the texture of the landscape. An abundance of deep rich candles set the room a glow on the luxurious satin deep green table linen. For a golden touch, styling was added with gold leaf glass charger plates, gold Mercury and statement gold vases. Whitehouse Crockery who has been working with Karen Tran in the UK this year added crystal glassware and gold cutlery for additional sparkle.
Debonair Venue Styling blended magnificent blooms to create jaw dropping floral centerpieces incorporating ruby hydrangeas, amaranthus, clematis, sweet Avalanche roses, Lisianthus, Rubicon spray roses, Grand Prix & Monte Carlo roses and ruscus. While Ben the Cakeman added an elegant gold and light green-tiered cake. Flower girls wearing custom Lola and Em designs were enthralled with the beauty of the day and added their own precious moments!
The vision of the bride was found in a Terry Fox bridal gown ‘Dance Away’ with a French corded lace bodice, heart shaped cut out pearl and crystal back with a handmade train of cascading detachable silk roses provided by Boho Bride.
Light and blush infused weddings continue to trend, but Debonair Venue Styling seriously makes us swoon for these moody dark details that are wildly gorgeous!
