Modern Day Cinderella

The fairytale look is often ignored in wedding styling – people think it’s too cliched, too traditional, and even a bit cheesy, but we love the look and feel of this Cinderella inspired shoot and are perfectly happy to be whisked off into a Disney Princess fantasy of a Sunday morning! Bethany at Mode 20 Weddings & Events has got the styling spot on. It’s utterly charming, swoon-worthily pretty and if you can’t feel like a Princess on your wedding day, then when can you?!?

With metallic colour accents, fresh florals, an abundance of candles and the sweetest of cakes, this is definitely a modern take on the Princess look. And remember, Cinderella didn’t ask for a Prince – she asked for a night off and a dress 😉

Bethany at Mode 20: I was inspired by the modern adaptation of Cinderella and the incredibly beautiful Lily James, and combined soft pastels with gorgeous metallics and raw foliage to design an inspiration shoot devoured with soft blues, opulent elements of copper and gold and dramatic table linens, to embody a whimsical and fairytale-esque style.

The shoot was set at De Grey Rooms in York, an elegant ballroom style venue which is dripping in history and sits just beside the historic Museum Gardens, during the Second World War dances were held here.

Sophie from Sophie’s Flowers and Events designed stunning floral arrangements that complimented the venue and styling beautifully, utilising a freshly garden-picked style with a heavy base of raw foliage and soft cream roses.

We incorporated a feminine, yet dramatic wedding gown, intricate accessories and luxurious crockery to add elements of lavishness and splendour, whilst still retaining a feminine and understated modern-edge.

Two stunning makeup looks were created by our makeup artist, Natalie Willingham which lent themselves perfect to the striking beauty of our bride and incredibly unique hair pieces.

The breathtaking Nicole Spose gowns were kindly lent by the Scarlet Poppy Bridal boutique in Leeds and are from the Colet collection.

Understated stationery, flickering copper candelabras, touches of teal and the gorgeous and historic backdrop of the Museum Gardens allowed our “Modern Day Cinderella” to come to life.
