Styled Shoot: Allington Manor Gothic Gorgeousness
Here at LoveLi I am always thrilled to be involved in styled shoots of all kinds. A chance to get the creative juices flowing and really inspire couples out there looking for big day inspo to help them plan their perfect big day. When Sophie from The Confetti Cakery got in touch with me through Instagram saying she admired my work and had a shoot in the planning I jumped at the chance to get involved. I had long drooled over the Confetti Cakery’s insta feed and knew this was one simply not to miss.
The brief was if I’m honest a little challenging for my usual style, but one that I revelled in exploring and creating a beautifully bespoke range especially for the shoot which took place at the beautiful Allington Manor. The dark, moody colour palette of gothic deep jewel hues and a touch of brass worked perfectly at this beautifully restored Grade II Jacobean house, steeped in history.
The invite range produced used a pocketfold style outer package that was carefully bound with luxe velvet ribbon and finished with a brass cast rose embellishment. Inside revealed a beautiful dark ruby red watercolour invitation with gold foiling. Table stationery consisted of beautful watercolour menu’s, again with a splash of luxe hot foiling and individual place cards on a contrasting slate grey, each with a gold ribbon tie that secured to the beautiful glassware styled by Save The Date.
A fabulous day was had by all and the dream team Sophie had put together worked hard to create something splendid in just one short day. Big thanks to the fabulous talent of Henry Lowther who captured all the magic on camera.
