Today’s beautiful styled shoot mixes traditional elegance with a hint of glamour and a whole lot of romance. Perfect for a modern, romantic elopement or intimate wedding, these styling ideas really capture the imagination.
The imposing mansion of Lowndes Grove Plantation in Charleston, USA, is the backdrop for these fairytale ideas. Within this refined setting the scenic beauty of the Lowcountry unfolds with panoramic views along the waterfront.
The florals are the focal delight of the table styling. Pretty blush, pink and peach flowers help create an intimate feel to the tablescape. The free-form arrangements sit upon delicately draped, flowing table linen, laid with classic plates with matching napkins. Taper candles in gold candle stick holders finish the charming look perfectly.
The floral table arrangements coordinate delightfully with the bride’s posy style bouquet. Her style is very elegant, yet relaxed, with a chic white wedding dress from BHLDN worn with a romantic long flowing cape.
If you dream of eloping to far away shores with the one you love, then I hope you fall in love with these romantic styling ideas by Tristan Needham Design, captured by Carlos Hernandez Photography.
“Carlos and I met a couple years back at another workshop, and knew it would be fun to collaborate again. Carlos wanted to travel to the south east, so we decided to take the plunge and shoot for a small/intimate workshop environment.
“We chose a venue that was inherently southern, yet had the potential to photograph with a fresh and new modern eye. Lowndes Grove was the perfect fit, not only for it’s stately architecture and lush marsh view, but also for the kind demeanour the folks at Patrick Properties have shown me over the years.
“Soon after choosing a date, we compiled a team of amazing vendors who are leaders of their craft. The warmth and camaraderie from the day I think shows through in the photos, and Carlos and I could not be happier with how smoothly the day ran.”
