Classic glamour was at the heart of this stunning inspiration shoot that celebrated old-world styling and sultry femininity, and the result is nothing short of breathtaking! Berkeley’s turn of the century castle-turned-hotel Claremont Club & Spa was the perfect setting for the blend of elegance and romance styled by Audrey Norman Photography and my lovely friend Ariana of Hey Wedding Lady. Working with a palette of crisp white, vintage gold, and hints of pastels, the team designed the event with a nod to the chic styles of the 1950s. Pretty floral motifs in the stationery by Aerialist Press perfectly matched the lush and romantic florals by Michelle Lywood, and the Galia Lahav gown from Kinsley James Couture Bridal Salon with a plunging back and sweeping tulle skirt stole the show, combining modern-day sexiness with retro-inspired curls from Kelly Jones Makeup. Darling bow details were sprinkled throughout, from the napkin bows at each place setting to the sculpted sugar ribbon on the cake from A Spoonful of Sugar. We are absolutely smitten with each gorgeous image from Audrey Norman Photography!
