For this editorial shoot in London, we collaborated with luxury editorial and wedding photographer Rebecca Searle to create an intimate micro-wedding scene that showcased how smaller occasions can still have a big impact.
The intimate affair was held in a penthouse overlooking the River Thames. With micro weddings, couples can allocate more budget to elements that might otherwise get overlooked on a larger scale. And so, we went all out to showcase what a truly magical experience a London elopement can be.
The day began with the bride and groom getting ready at the Four Seasons Hotel at Ten Trinity Square. We set up a table for two on the penthouse terrace, showcasing the stunning vista of the iconic Tower Bridge and the city of London. We wanted to create an intimate environment against such an iconic backdrop, and so we designed an impactful floral installation that would provide a special and intimate setting just for the couple without hindering the view.
The floral installation was created to look as if it were growing from the ground itself; a full, textured coppice filled with artfully arranged florals in elegant shades of white, cream, and green. Stepping through this floral utopia, the couple arrived at their table, which was set with Duchess & Butler crockery and letterpressed menus from Ink & Paper, tied with a pearl-adorned bow. Tall white taper candles and a single-tier pastel-colored Sugarplum Bakes cake completed the elegant tablescape.
For us, celebrating an intimate union of two is all about the details; the refined and considered luxury elements that make the day feel special. That’s exactly what we achieved with this micro wedding shoot; a unique and intimate environment focused solely on creating a magical and unforgettable experience for our couple.
We were thrilled to be a part of this stunning elopement shoot and hope you love these stunning images as much as we do!
