Glamour & Grace | Luxurious Wedding Inspiration With Pretty Corals, Peaches & Blues
Evening lovelies! Today’s styled bridal shoot is all about the glamour and the grace! Who can forget the iconic image of Grace Kelly on her wedding day?! She looked out-of-this world beautiful!
Today’s shoot was inspired by Princess Grace of Monaco and the forthcoming film about her life post marriage [Grace of Monaco]. As you can imagine this bridal shoot is elegant, luxurious and just the perfect inspiration for any glamorous [or princess-in-waiting] bride-to-be.

When the Urban Fox magazine approached me to create a styled shoot for their wedding issue, I jumped at the chance.
Creative projects are always so inspiring for the rest of my work and for my wedding clients to see also. For this shoot, I wanted to create something that was upcoming, rather than following current trends.
The glamour and influence of The Great Gatsby still seems to be apparent in many trends, so as a group of suppliers we felt it was key to creating a luxurious feel.
Knowing that Nicole Kidman was going to be starring in the film, Grace of Monaco, it became our perfect choice for inspiration. The wedding images of Grace Kelly on her wedding day continue to appear, even with comparisons being drawn when the Duchess of Cambridge stepped out on her wedding day.
Working with the stunning gowns that Giling and White Bridal have at their boutique, we decided to concentrate more on the hollywood style glamour of Grace Kelly and her role as Grace of Monaco.
The flowers and table decorations were inspired by luxury, with the colours being drawn from the latest colour palette of corals, peaches and blues. The hair and makeup was designed to reflect a classic look that brides could relate to and that also looks stunning. After all, this is what every bride hopes to achieve on her day.
The two venues were chosen so that we could show a chic city centre location and a church outdoor location by the water to reflect the film and also the different choice that a couple may look at when selecting their venue.
As a team of local wedding suppliers, it was such a creative experience to work together and I could do it all day long which is why I’m always on the look out for the next creative project.
Such pretty images and styling! Massive pat on the back to all the team and particularly Joanne from Nine Photos!
I love the vibrant coral, peach and blue colour palette, mixed with the vintage princess glamour, don’t you? Will definitely be keeping my eye open for the film release Grace of Monaco too.
