When we featured Liz Linkleter's own stylish wedding and heard that she was making a career move from fashion events into weddings, we were hugely excited. Watching her new career unfold has been fabulous. We were very proud when she agreed to join our handpicked supplier directory - The List. And so today it's a real pleasure to share this shoot, styled and planned by Liz with you all. Inspired by the Orangery at Sezincote, with it's crumbing pink walls and abundance of plants, a blush pink and botanicals theme works beautifully in the space. We love a fresh take on Bridal style and teaming a smokey eye with contemporary jewellery and gowns from up-and-coming designers keeps everything really stylish. Oh and Duchess & Butler plus Palais Flowers has resulted in a seriously divine table scape...just wait until you see it!
Liz the Planner & Stylist: This elegant botanical-inspired shoot celebrates one of my favourite colour palettes, blush pink and dark green, with accents of gold. Sezincote’s stunning Orangery has beautiful crumbling pale pink walls and is full of plant life, so we worked with our surroundings to create a scheme that perfectly complimented the colours and faded grandeur of the house. We also shot part of this in the beautiful gardens and by the ornamental pond. I wanted to create something timeless, romantic and elegant, but with a nod to current trends – botanicals, foliage, gold accents and those gorgeous colours. Something that would never date, yet would still feel contemporary. We worked with some of the UK’s most exciting suppliers, including amazing London-based florist Emma of Palais Flowers, who created dramatic and romantic displays for us in all shades of pink and blush, with hand-dyed silk linens ribbons and table linen by Lancaster & Cornish, and some stunning dresses, two from young up-and-coming London-based designers. Photographs are by brilliant fine art photographer Rebecca Goddard whose considered and creative approach was exactly what we needed to capture the drama of the surroundings.
