Blush and Gold
Charlton House’s Orangery is a darling Art Deco style building, with parquet floors and full-height oval patio doors. Classic English country style mingles with French chic with Mulberry drapes and gilded mirrors. It’s the perfect backdrop for a simple blush and gold palette which features wild florals at its heart.
The orangery is flooded with light. It’s perfect for natural light wedding photography during the months of March to October. You can hold your ceremony and/or meal in the Orangery.
Here you’ll find a gorgeous array of garden roses, with armfuls of lush foliage. A colour palette of blush and gold and foliage works beautifully against the natural textures of marble and brickwork found at the venue. Featuring a huge trailing urn arrangement, gold leaf silk ribbons, a stunning half-up/half-down hairstyle, and a breathtaking asymmetric ruffled gown.
I was commissioned by luxe florist Fleur Provocateur to shoot this brand editorial at Charlton House Hotel’s grand Orangery. It mixes the opulent glamour of Hollywood’s Golden Era with the fairytale romance of Cinderella as she waits to enter the ballroom. Shooting entirely on professional film stocks added to the aspirational feel.
Blush and gold has certainly been in fashion for a while and might even be considered over-done! But it’s a classic that I believe will never go out of style. And when used cleverly in a space with rich colours it looks seriously classy.
