Cinderella Bridal Photo Shoot part 1

Cinderella was the last of my Fairytale Photo Shoots this year so we decided to go out with a bang and boy, did we do that!  We had a bride and a groom plus 3 bridesmaids and 3 groomsmen so the set was huge!  As always my fairytale team delivered and I am over the moon with the results.

I’ve split the post into two parts because there are just too many gorgeous images for one post – the first looks at the cake, flowers and styling details and the second, at 2pm today, will look at the dresses, shoes, jewellery and fascinators. Cinderella - 310

For me, Cinderella is the ultimate fairytale princess – the story is full of sparkle and glamour and that was exactly the look I was going for.

The table was covered with flowers, gold candlebras, gold cutlery and a pink tea set – perfect for any princess!

The place settings were gold glitter covered pumpkins with a placecard inserted – I made them all myself and got covered in glitter during the process!

Ok, so there was glitter everywhere – I used it on the rim of the wine glasses and my favourite was the mini champagne bottles which would be perfect for a sparkling drinks reception.

The flowers were so romantic with gorgeous roses and mixed flowers in our pink, turquoise and lilac colour scheme.

To create the elegant and extravagant look we used tall candlebras decorated with flowers at the base and around the candles.

To ensure we covered the table with as many flowers as possible, many smaller arrangements in gold vases were used to create the look.

I just love the mix of colours against the gold vases.

The cake was a towering triumph – again using the same colour palette we combined the pumpkin theme with buttons to match the bouquets and plenty of sparkle.

The mini gold pumpkins looked perfect on top of the cake.

There were lots of simple details that complemented the extravagant  look of the rest of the shoot.

To add some colour I added some strips of pink and gold fabric to create a theatrical skirt to the bride & grooms gold chivari chairs.

To keep in with the Cinderella theme I also added flower balls and mini gold slippers to their chairs.

We used a lot of flowers on the wedding table and I wanted to have a large over the top brooch bouquet for Cinderella that reflected the glitz and glamour throughout the scenes.

The bouquet was so detailed with glass slippers, a golden carriage, crowns and clocks to name but a few of the brooches included.

Cinderella - 329

The groom and groomsmen also had brooch button holes, each mirroring the colours of their partner.  Prince Charming’s buttonhole incorporated all of the colours into a large piece.

Cinderella - 166

I wanted to create a colourful ballroom scene for the evening reception – for this we used over 200 balloons in pink, gold, lilac and turquoise, these filled the ceiling and with the long ribbons hanging from them created a magical space.

Cinderella - 093

Tune in this afternoon at 2pm for a closer look at the dresses, jewellery, shoes and fascinators that helped to create the Cinderella wedding look.

Love & Sparkles





Also to follow very soon is a beautiful behind the scenes video which highlights the ballroom scene and the gorgeous song that Nikki wrote for us – it is just fabulous!
