Urban Chic Art Deco Inspired Shoot

Urban Chic Art Deco Inspired Shoot

We’re keeping it totally classy this Wedding Wednesday! Today we feature a luxury styled shoot from Davina Simone Weddings. This urban chic, Art Deco-inspired wedding ceremony and table design set the scene for an elegant wedding breakfast. This shoot is swooning lovely with an air of luxury and opulence.

The floral designs from Davina Simone Weddings in this shoot are stunning and intricate, we love that each arrangement is different and unique, below she tells us more about the concept behind the shoot…

This wedding concept is a modern look with influences of the iconic designs, glamour and decadence of the Art Deco era. Metallics and glass table decor were used to bring in a geographical aspects for the Tablescape and Cake Table design. Glass Terrariums filled with flowers transcended the theme as well as interesting details. Contrasting colours were used to make the colours stand out, yet elegantly match the tones of gold and blue. 

The floral ring cushion beautifully presents the Ring “I wanted to create a Ring Cushion that is memorable and delicate in design to present the Bride’s Ring”. 

Our Bridal look from Jays Prestige is subtle and vintage with bold red lips and hair styled in cascading waves swept to the side accessorised with a jewelled comb a lovely finishing touch.
The bridal-wear designer Yinka Alli creates unique bridal wear. The exuberant Ultra-feminine two piece with delicate hand beaded lace illusion and ivory taffeta mermaid skirt compliments the figure.

The venue is an incredible space with beautiful natural light flooding in and neutral blank canvas decor to make those pretty pops of colour in the flowers really stand out. A greenery arch made up of Jasmine Vines, Roses, Lisianthus acts as the focal point to the ceremony space with elegant metal flower stands sitting proud either side by Wedding Metal Art.

The shoes and the little details are so so pretty. The subtle nude shade in the Diane Hassall shoes beautiful and most of all, graceful.

We love it when a shoot has coordinating drinks too, they’ve thought about it all! These cocktails scream sophistication with delicate coupe glasses and flavoured with fruit to match the colour palette of the rest of the shoot. Absolutely super when teamed with the beautiful, classic cake from Kate Sweet Magnolia. A subtle blue watercolour detail sits with gold accents and finished with a luxury finesse. Simply stunning!

The combination of Hydrangeas, Roses, Astilbe, and Wax flower mixed with the fabric textures taffeta, satin and velvet adds different details and movement throughout the shoot. 

The shoot ends with a silver confetti shot, a perfect way to end a shoot and an amazing photo from Diana Crown Pictures
