In the depths of dreary winter, Valentine’s Day never fails to warm our hearts. The heady mix of roses and romance are enough to have us daydreaming of ruby accents and sumptuous lace throughout most of February. This stunningly perfect Valentine’s Day inspired wedding shoot is certainly a dream come true. If you are looking for some perfectly romantic wedding inspiration, look no further than this gorgeous shoot, inspired by the holiday of love.
Styled by the fabulous Heather Benge Events, and hosted by Styled Shoots Across America, this editorial is the perfect mixture of modern and classic, luxury and rustic charm. Some of the House of Elliot favourites, Goodnight Sweetheart and Lizzie Elliot lace boots are perfectly at home here, mixing timeless materials and a unique style for your wedding day.
A perfectly romantic setting
When we think of Valentine’s Day, many things come to mind. Love letters, candlelit dinners and red roses fill our imagination. All these elements have come together to inspire this gorgeous wedding shoot. Captured perfectly by 2b Photography, the Valentine’s shades of deep red and bright gold are bold against the laid-back setting of The Barn at Shady Lane.
Rustic wood textures allow the bridal bouquet by Intrigue Teaches to shine in all it’s opulent glory, while the antique table decor by Tea & Old Roses and candlelight add to the timeless romance of the occasion. The effect is one of intimate romance, at once both relaxed and luxurious.
The scene is perfectly finished with exquisite details. From the flowing calligraphy of the stationary by Gracefully Made Art, to the strikingly simple wedding cake by Cakes by Kim, this styled shoot ensures the Valentine’s Day wedding theme feels elegant, timeless and up to date.
A timeless bride and groom
Mirroring the elegant wedding decor, the style chosen for models Amanda and Aaron Hinton is the perfect marriage of classic beauty and modern tastes.
While the choice of blue suit for the groom is both bold and playful, the bride’s look truly steals the show. The use of traditional lace, with a beautiful v neck ivory gown from The White Room and the faux-fur stole, creates a vision of demure beauty with a touch of sophisticated luxury.
For the bride who loves fashions of times gone by, the Victorian inspired Lizzie Elliot lace boots are as romantic as the sweetest love notes. From the soft lace to the antique style heel, these wedding boots add vintage detail to a timeless bridal look.
The more sultry bride will revel in the over-the-knee dream that is the Goodnight Sweetheart pair worn by Amanda. The stunning lace, glamorous high heel and sleek satin ribbon are luxuriously decadent additions to your wedding day (and perfect for Valentine’s Nights!).
So, cheers! Here’s to a little Valentine’s Day romance!
