Alongside all the new trends, this is a look that will always be a firm favourite. A timeless and classic wedding involves formal settings and elaborate dresses with romance at every turn. Subtle elements and a hint of the luxe chic are carried throughout.
Create the look
Think beautiful cream or pale pink roses in abundance, fine silks and heirloom lace, a show stopping veil, bridesmaids in beautiful traditional picture book dresses – it’s romance all the way. For the chaps, it’s all about the classic cars – A Bentley or old Jag would do the business – and stepping out in a sharp morning suit with elegant fine leather shoes – and maybe even a top hat and tails.
Dress the venue
The key to achieving this look is keeping things simple, cut crystal, reflective chandeliers, pillar candles with formal diner wear and historical venues as a back drop to your perfect day.
Fabulous feasting tables with ice sculptures and fresh seafood – langoustines, lobster and smoked salmon, naturally, great sides of British roast beef cooked rare, elegant desserts, or even an afternoon tea all suit this wonderful classic style.
Go for country creams, classic roses and extravagant displays that steal the show.
