With this Modern meets, Victorian Bridgerton inspired shoot we brought to life the fairytale of the show with twists that make it relevant for today.
We honed in on the Victorian aspects with vintage furniture and decor, a horse and carriage, antique candlesticks, bar cart, vintage china, and glassware. A custom crest was created for the invitations to incorporate the theme from the very start.
Blending that with a modern-day mobile bar, ice sculpture, live painter, and sparkler fountains to show that you can have the best of both worlds. The bar served cocktails in antique coup glasses with the menu dedicated to the first cocktails described by Charles Dickens when he came to America to continue to intertwine Modern and Victorian.
The bride’s dresses all have a traditional, yet modern spin to them. We kept things traditional for the ceremony and picnic then slowly shifted to more whimsical dresses as the sun went down. The final dress brought the sparkle to stand out again the sparklers.
It was important that we stuck to traditional colors of periwinkle blue, navy blue, white, and green. This can be seen through the location setting, tablescapes, cake, dress wear, lighting, and florals. We wanted to utilize flowers heavily to bring out the natural feeling of the venue setting and stay true to the Victorian era. The Wisteria was carefully hung from the trees over hours to give us the magical feeling to the very end.
What jumps out on this cloudy, misty day is that feeling as though you are in the English Countryside. This just helped to enhance the theme even further, showing that you can have the fairytale you see on TV but intertwine it with touches of today that make your wedding a modern fairytale come to life.
