Ceilings gilded in gold, sweeping staircases, intricate detailed arched windows & breathtaking marbled floors; Hawkstone Hall offers a combination of heritage & modern luxury…a perfect space for Charlotte Palazzo to showcase her timeless photography style.
I was beyond excited when Charlotte invited me to be part of her editorial photo shoot aptly named “Petite Dauphine”. Her vision was to embrace the joys of romance in full bloom with a colourful yet delicate palette & a touch of French blue. Charlotte wanted to draw inspiration from the BBC TV drama Marie Antoinette but didn’t want to take anything literally from the drama, just little nods to the style & elegance. Overall the shoot was to provide a dreamy yet bold hint of French romance & hues, working in harmony with Hawkstone’s impressive interior features.
The bridal gowns were a huge inspiration for me during this entire shoot so I brought elements of the exquisite embroidery design through the table linens and crockery. Other styling elements were kept very clean & minimal to create a backdrop for the dreamy floristry by Sarah at Hope & Flora Style. Sarah is quite possibly one of the calmest people I’ve ever met & watching her gracefully go about her work on the day was quite inspiring!
A sweeping, elegant typeface paired with bold botanical illustrations gave a timeless yet modern edge to the invitation suite & the exquisite bridal wear continued to spark my imagination!
For table stationery, I used a tactile linen cardstock for the menus to elevate the simplicity of the overall place setting.
