I have something very special to share with you today on the Lace & Love Hearts blog in the shape of a styled ‘Majestic Splendour’ shoot which took place at the glorious Blenheim Palace. This magical shoot captures exquisite pieces from some of the UK’s leading wedding suppliers who came together to create a sense of majestic splendour and regal atmosphere in one of the UK's most historic palaces.
The palace’s orangery was transformed using stunning floral arrangements, beautiful table settings, specially commissioned thrones, Chiavari chairs and imposing centrepieces expertly arranged by the luxury event design company, Cedar Events, and beautifully embellished with stationary and brooch bouquets by The Finer Details.
The beautiful couture gowns worn by the models have a certain stately elegance and romance which is appropriate for such glorious surrounding. Hand crafted using the finest silks, satins, brocade and lace; these sumptuous gowns were created by Kosibah, and elaborated with jewel-encrusted jewellery and tiaras created by Rosie Weisencrantz.
No styled photo-shoot would be complete without an impressive cake or two, and this shoot was furnished with a collection of the most beautiful custom made cakes, cupcakes, cookies, meringues, cake pops, petit fours, fondant fancies and handmade chocolates imaginable. Every sweet treat was made and expertly decorated with edible gold cameos, cherubs and sugar flowers by Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium.
The arrangements were perfectly photographed by Cristina Rossi, who managed to capture the elegance and the level of artistry of the event, and the passion which was poured into every element in this thoroughly inspiring shoot.
Now let them eat cake!
