Our beautiful styled photo shoot took place at the Hydro Hotel in Eastbourne, East Sussex on a gloriously hot early British Summer day in May. Our photo shoot venue has been a Hotel since 1895 and is more recently a Wedding venue. We took our inspiration and colour palette from its seafront setting and the wonderful coastal views down to the white chalk cliffs at Beachy Head. The light reflects up from from the sea and to the coastal Terrace creating a wonderfully atmospheric location for a couple to say their vows. Its elevated yet private gardens have direct sea views, and its Coastal Terrace where couples can say their vows, features a stunning custom-made dome with open sides in front of a stone tiled terrace and decorative plants, giving a wonderful, Mediterranean Wedding feel. (Available for weddings from April to October with a capacity for 80 guests).
Our shoot has captured the charismatic elegance of a mid Summer Wedding with the lucent feel of a Mediterranean style setting. Our floral designer Lydie dalton matched the location, venue and our stunning Bride beautifully. Creating her gorgeous and unique bouquet with seasonal cream peonies, perfect blush roses and harvested Hawthorn bush flowers in full blossom. Lydie uses petite Pewter topped French mini vases with individual sprigs of Hawthorn to create a really effective yet low cost table decoration for our Bride and Grooms Wedding cake table. Our magnificent ‘Lily may’ cake was created by Liz Chatfield from Sylvias Kitchen and has delicately sculpted white icing flowers to its top and as decoration on the sides. We used the soft blues of the Wedgewood Suite as a backdrop for our cake cutting and couple portraits- stylishly decorated by the amazing Sam from Mulberry Events. Sam used large blue sating ribbons tied around the chairs and pewter lanterns to decorate the room as a perfect wedding venue for us. The soft blues of our room’s walls and satin bows continuing our theme through to our interior set of images.
Our beautiful Bride Georgina wears a stunning beaded Ashley and Justin dress Kindly supplied by Fross Wedding collections of Uckfield and has delicately patterned beading covering its entirely down to its elegant mid length train.
