Victorian Wedding Inspiration Photo Shoot

Beautiful Victorian Wedding Inspirational Shoot

Victorian Wedding – what a creative concept for a 21st century wedding! In history, the Victorian period marked a “long period of peace, prosperity, refined sensibilities and national self-confidence for Britain”. (Source: Wikipedia) When I think Victorian a few words come to mind: classic, elegant, refined, high tea & lovely china, big fancy dresses with corsets, curly hair and interesting hats and accessories. What comes to mind when you think of the Victorian period?

I have always been intrigued by history and the various eras, way of life, fashion, art, religion, culture, etc that existed before my life began. It is common for people to find inspiration in history (fashion, art, culture, etc) and either replicate, creatively build upon, or re-engineer to suit modern taste and style. When it comes to weddings, we are seeing less “traditional” weddings and more creative and personalized weddings that match the style and personality of the bride and groom. Recent popular wedding style choices have been whimsical, rustic, modern,vintage, outdoor, beach, etc. So when the opportunity came my way to share and inspirational shoot for Victorian-styled wedding, I was all in!

Today I am excited to share a lovely Victorian wedding inspirational photo shoot beautifully put together by a creative and talented group of wedding professionals. Let me give you a few details of the photo shoot:

What inspired this Victorian wedding photo shoot? This photo shoot was inspired by a china plate from Plate Vintage Rentals. The color coordination of the plate was amazing and immediately gave us the idea of creating a Victorian inspired photo shoot. From the lace fabrics to the custom designed invitation suite and Victorian details this shoot was full of ideas and lots of attention to details.

The venue looks amazing, where did this photo shoot take place? This photo shoot took place at the amazingly beautiful Grove Redfield Estate in Glenview Illinois. The bright colors and beautiful fireplace gave this Victorian photo shoot a cozy and romantic feel.

Flowers are a woman’s best friend…..ok maybe 2nd best?

I would definitely say that next in line after diamonds, flowers definitely make the cut~~flowers are a woman’s best friend or at least a way to her heart! I mean there is no wonder that a wedding cant take place without the ornate presence of flowers—everywhere! Beauty, color, and smell seem to make them irresistible to any bride, plus these decor items really do an amazing job in adding beauty to any element they are added or combined too. In all their beauty, when it comes to weddings or any other large scale event, flowers can be pretty pricey considering the fact that their life span is short-lived and can serve no viable purpose after the wedding/event.  Despite this, flowers have become a necessary part of the wedding, which I can not argue. While some brides may have a nice budget to work with that allows them to go flower-crazy (which is awesome), others may have to pull off their dream wedding cutting corners to work within their budget. A great place to start is by trimming the amount of flowers, which depending on your venue, theme, colors, flower choices, and time of the year can be done without taking away the beauty and “wow” factor of your wedding. Here are some pictures that I found that totally reflect this concept:

Besides flowers you can use plants, candles, tree branches, and vases/bottles decorated or filled with a variety of items (buttons, fruit/vegetables, sand, rocks, feathers, etc) for your centerpieces. Here are some DIY idea substitutions for flowers:

I used a fruit centerpiece as part of my decor:

Also, if you are the DIY type or have some experience in flower arrangements you could just go down to your local wholesale flower shop/wharehouse and pick your flowers. The only problem with this is that most flowers dont have a long “shelf-life”, so this will require you to get these items at the last minute, design your arrangement, store them, transport to the venue and have them set-up. As the bride, you may not want the additional stress of having to deal with all this, so the easiest way is to pay someone else to do it or have a wonderful friend/family member take care of it for you. Here are a couple DIY flower centerpiece options:

Here is a gem from my “white book” that sells wholesale flowers and petals online for a reasonable price: www.fiftyflowers.com .

I really have more to share about centerpieces, so I will continue to post beautiful DIY centerpieces and flower alternatives.
