An opulent bridal shoot in the Garden of Eden

02 Feb 2017

As featured on the front cover of Cheshire Bride magazine, we go behind the scenes on the Garden of Eden shoot by Knutsford Wedding Gallery

Deacdent and luxurious, the Garden of Eden shoot from Knutsford Wedding Gallery oozes opulence and a taste for the finer things in life - albeit created very simply. Here, Camilla Britten, boutique manager at Knutsford Wedding Gallery, details how the shoot was put together.

What was the inspiration behind the shoot?

The inspiration behind this shoot was elegance and sophistication, awash with bold colours and an over-indulgence of glamour. We wanted the bride to see luxury and beauty everywhere, from the set design to the dresses to the styling, like she has just stepped right into the Garden of Eden.

Tell us a little bit about the venue and why it was chosen?

The venue was a simple household garden. We wanted to show no matter how large or small or how simplistic or grand the venue, a highly detailed and beautiful set can be created anywhere. Many of the flowers were used from the garden itself and it really displays the genius behind the set creation.

What did you choose for the flower arrangements?

The ethos for the flowers was English heritage flowers on a grand scale; greenery and gorgeous pink and purple hydrangeas were cut from existing bushes on location and used to create something that can only be described as a masterpiece. Oversized unstructured bouquets were used to complete the look. In the imagery the colours are what stands out the most, complementing every aspect of the theme and everybody’s talents.

What kind of look did you want to achieve with the make-up, hair and outfits for the bride?

We wanted the bride to ooze opulence to complement the beauty of the backdrop, the lace dresses offer a European feel which adds to the romantic aesthetic of the shoot. The full tulle dress shows the bride that any type of glamour can be incorporated into this theme, whether it is a pretty bridal look or a sexier bridal style.

What kind of accessories were used to create these looks and why?

Many accessories were used again to complement the theme and to put the finishing touch to the glamour. We used a range of different accessories to show the bride the versatility of the theme and again, this was also supported by the hair styling and make-up. Accessories included floating hand-painted floral pins, a cascading vine, and beautiful jewellery including a claret and gold floating necklace.
