Elegant wedding inspiration at The Landmark London with blush flowers and fashion and balloon wedding decor.
One of our favourite moments during this shoot was the bridal party during ‘bridal prep’. The Landmark London had kindly opened their gorgeous Landmark Suite for us and to inject some personality into the shots. We featured gold and white helium balloons from Balloonista, a company that offers biodegradable balloons. As a guide, it takes around 6 months (the same length of time as an oak leaf) for their natural latex balloons made of tree sap to biodegrade.
The wedding dresses were selected purely for their sparkle. Anna Campbell has the most divine selection of sparkly dresses, we opted for Tate Empress made with a delicate hand-embellished shimmering sequin tulle and versatile one shoulder detail. Our second dress used in the more fun and active shots was the Meadow Topper & Riley Skirt, the top features a classic illusion neckline, capped sleeve and fluttering open back with the skirt being playfully voluminous and created from mesmerising hand-sequinned blush tulle.
We wanted the bridesmaids to feel equally fabulous so opted for three tulle skirt options from TH&TH Bridesmaids. The idea was to go for dresses in different styles but in various tones of one colour. We selected Luna in Smoked Orchid, featuring a beautiful one-shoulder detail again, Grace in Smoked Orchid, featuring pretty tulle details on each shoulder and signature low V back, and Bardot 2.0 in Smoked Blush, our personal favourite of the three, with the main feature being the multiway adjustable strap that can be worn as a true Bardot, a spaghetti strap, cold shoulder or strapless.
A variety of delicate Hermione Harbutt accessories were sent for our talented hair and makeup artist, Storme, to select from. The bride wore two Violette Hairpins with the Olympia Chandelier Earrings, with her hair down and then later in an updo for the second look. Our three bridesmaids wore the Cordelia Tiara with Luna in Smoked Orchid, two Elspeth Hair Slides with Grace in Smoked Orchid and the Elspeth Earrings with Bardot 2.0 in Smoked Blush. Bella Belle sent four pairs of heels for the shoot, the bridal party wore Gardenia, Bridget and Valentina with the bride in Edna. A Caridi Slim Fit Sky Check Three Piece Suit and Rome Tan Brogue Shoes were selected for the groom.
