We are delighted to be sharing the beautiful pictures from this Hollywood Glamour wedding shoot that took place at The Duke of Cornwall Hotel in Plymouth.
The pictures showcase the hotel’s facilities for weddings in all their splendor, and we love the Hollywood Glamour styling that works perfectly at this stunning hotel.
“The Duke of Cornwall is a venue bursting with history and elegance, so when we were planning this inspirational shoot the elegance of the 1930s seemed to capture the spirit of the hotel.
“I wanted our styling to reflect the old school glamour and refinement of the beautiful, historic hotel. The luxurious ballroom echoes with the ghosts of elegant parties in times gone by; as I first stood on the beautiful parquet dance floor and looked around the room I wanted to recreate the ambience of such an event.
“To create the perfect setting for an elegant dinner we used a pallet of very on-trend rich Pantone colours – Toasted Almond and Lucite Green – along with touches of gold and antique rose, that work well within the context of this glamorous era.
“Table linen is often over looked when planning decor for a wedding. Using the Toasted Almond tablecloths and beautiful coloured napkins added texture and opulence to our design, along with the Champagne saucers and gold rimmed china. Using wonderful fern and orchid centrepieces our talented florist brought the glamour of 1930s floral design right up to date. She also created two fabulous bouquets, again using the shapes that echo those that brides would have carried in the 30s era.
“Our fabulous and stylish stationery featured the key colours along with beautiful typography, and what wedding celebration would be complete without some uber-opulent desserts, which we showed off on an antique table decorated with vintage cut glass vases filled with flowers.
“Our beautiful bride and dashing groom look as if they have stepped back in timelessly glamorous attire that would have blended in perfectly on the Duke’s ballroom in the 1930s. Tommy wore a smart, tailored Dinner Jacket, and looked just the part to complement his lovely bride’s elongated silhouette and embellished dresses.”
