It’s Friiiiday :)) and it’s only right that we end the week with some high octane bridal glamour right? Well this gorgeous 1950’s, Hollywood Glamour shoot oozes all that. Set in the ultra swanky venue that is, The Connaught and showcasing the beautiful work of many talented suppliers, this inspiration is bound to bring out the Veronica Lake in us all. It does me!

Set amidst truly breathtaking scenery, ornate décor, sublime crystal chandeliers, the shoot is a display of wedding’s 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’, Perfect Events chose a rich palette of colours with red tones; plum, dark red, raspberry and fuchsia, perfectly showcased by the pink ombre of beautiful blooms by Wild About.
