Indulgent luxe inspiration

At Olivier Laudus, we love getting involved in styled shoots as they are a fabulous way to work with great suppliers and together create some amazing inspiration for brides to be. And so were thrilled when luxury wedding planner Jemma Jade asked us to lend pieces for one of her styled shoots at the oh so elegant 11 Cadogan Gardens, a boutique hotel near London’s Sloane Square. The theme was stand-out luxe and glamour and the final images I think you will agree were just stunning. Here are some of our favourites from the shoot plus some ideas of what you might like to think about when creating your own luxe wedding day style. 11CG Bride shot

The colour scheme of black, white, gold and red had dramatic Gothic overtones, but was softened by the romantic silk and lace wedding dress by Emma Tindley and a loose 40s style bun, accented with our Amelia vintage inspired diamanté hairclip from our new Romance accessory collection.

The pearl earrings and bracelet also from our new collection gave the overall a more ethereal feel, while the smokey eye-shadow tied in with the Gothic romantic theme but the rest of the make up was kept more subtle and pretty.

The indulgent luxe feel was created with lavish attention to detail: chic black and white cakes made by the fabulous Elizabeth Solaru from Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium; floral scented candles and blooms in red and white as well as fruit displays.

And the piece de resistance were the striking black bridesmaids dresses by Maids to Measure, complemented with sparkly Olivier Laudus wedding accessories, contrasting beautifully with the feminine bridal outfit. The overall effect in 11 Cadogan Garden’s mirror room was just breathtaking.
