When it comes to old world romance, you can’t go wrong with Shakespeare, all his sonnets scream love! This wedding was inspired by Shakespeare works and took place in a castle built as a promise kept between a husband to his wife on their wedding day in 1927.
The bride was wearing an elegant off the shoulder wedding dress by Karen Willis Holmes and an amazing cape base of tulle and fresh flowers and greenery. The maid of honor wore a silver crepe gown from Katie May Collection and the ladies flaunted elegant yet relaxed updos by Brides by Benedetti. The men were wearing more casual attire by Ted Baker and J.Crew, with wool, plaid, and light blue for the groom and a comfy sweater for the groomsman.
The wedding took place in the above mentioned castle, which is now a romantic restaurant and venue, which is ideal for a Shakespeare-inspired love story. The color palette was a wintery one, with dark plums, lavender, icy blues and creams accented by spring-like tones: bright greens, pinks, and oranges. The stylists juxtaposed icy with warm, and old with the new.
The wedding decor was done with heavy winter textiles with a rose velvet linen and hand woven blankets over the chairs, rose gold and copper were used for creating a tablescape. The wedding invitation suite was watercolor, with depth and color; raw, textured paper was combined with silk ribbon, wax seals and copper. The wedding cake was an icy blue fondant with a simple texture topped with dried blooms.
