Old Hollywood Glamour At The Connaught Hotel

Dear All,

This year we had the pleasure of planning and styling not one but two utterly gorgeous styled shoots at one of our favourite venues The Connaught Hotel. Today we bring to you the first of two shoots, with the second ‘Vintage Elegance’ to be shared with you all very soon!

A ‘1950s Hollywood Glamour’ inspired shoot boasting in swoon appeal conceptualised, planned and styled by yours truly.

We chose the opulent splendour of the luxurious Connaught Hotel in London’s prestigious Mayfair, as the perfect backdrop, to marry wonderfully with our theme. Set amidst truly breathtaking scenery, ornate décor, stunning crystal chandeliers, the shoot is a display of wedding must haves for all brides wanting to take a step back in time to glamour’s golden age; a time reminiscent of iconic movie stars and unadulterated elegance.

Taking inspiration from the popular red lipsticks commonly worn in the 1950s and the words of style icon Audrey Hepburn ‘There is a shade of red for every woman’, we chose a rich palette of red tones; plum, dark red, raspberry and fuchsia, perfectly showcased by the pink ombre of beautiful blooms by Wild About.

Perfectly styled Veronica Lake ‘esque’ hair waves, accentuated by immaculate makeup by Alison Cameron. Heavenly shoes by Aruna Seth wonderfully complimented by the ‘Babette’ dress a softly layered skirt, cap sleeved embroidered bodice by Bruce Oldfield. Also featured is a delicate lace applique and satin gown ‘Angelina’ by Sassi Holford worn with peep toe sling back shoes by Gina.

The ‘Coco’ Chanel 2.55 handbag inspired wedding cake and dessert table full of exquisitely decorated treats by Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium uber-licious eye candy.

With photography by Bandele Zuberi and filming by Cinematographer Deneemotion every detail captured exudes glamour in epic proportions to delight and inspire all!

A huge thanks to The Connaught Hotel and their AMAZING team and to all the fabulous vendors, great working with you all!
