Glamorous Old World Wedding Inspiration


It’s nearly impossible to pick just one particular spot to start with this styled shoot from Whitney Nichols Photography (who also took care of all the floral arrangements), but appropriate at the prime is the scene-stealing gown by Anna Campbell. As the title suggests, it fuses the Old Planet era with the most romantic glam style. Let’s get a little moody:

From the photographer and floral designer, Whitney Nichols Photography: Very first and foremost, we wanted to give brides lovely indoor reception inspiration, specifically with winter in complete swing here on the east coast. It can be challenging to generate a setting inside that is equal in beauty to all the outside weddings set in the course of the spring and summer months, and this was an opportunity for us to inspire the winter bride. The Inns of Aurora (Finger Lakes area of NY) has maintained an impeccably timeless aura in their village. With a handful of establishments, ranging from a wedding venue, boutique inns, and a newly renovated spa, it was the best place for this shoot. Secondly, we wanted to function a dress that would encourage a bride to step outside of the box, and contemplate some thing exquisite, like a piece of art on its own.

The vibe of the shoot began with a handful of subtle nods to each the romance of Atonement (2007 British romantic-drama war film with Keira Knightley) and a bit of Gatsby glamour and style… general, we were after the style, grace, and warm luxury of an indoor dinner party that may have occurred for the duration of the last glamorous years ahead of the war. Whilst these had been just stepping stones for our inspiration, we located that incorporating the historic setting provided by the buildings at the Inns of Aurora brought to the setting a sense of sweet nostalgia. For the table scape in certain, we wanted to craft a scene that would be reminiscent of a grand dinner gathering from the final years of correct elegance and aristocracy. You’ll notice in the hair, makeup, gown, and table scape styling that the 1930s was our “go to” decade of inspiration.
