I’m delighted to share this fabulous Burgh Island wedding shoot, which celebrates 100 years of Art Deco. Remaining sympathetic to the movement but with a modern edge for the 2020’s.
1920’s Art Deco With A 2020 Twist
The Burgh Island Hotel was the perfect location for this wedding shoot. A spectacular art deco hotel, built in the 1920s and sympathetically restored to its former art deco glamour. It stands proud on its own tidal island, surrounded by the glittering sea and golden sandy beaches.
Stylish & Elegant Details
Carina Baverstock Couture supplied the most incredible dress that was modern and extravagant but still oozed the sophistication, luxury, and glamour of the art deco movement.
The Bride’s make-up was natural, with a bit more drama for the eyes. The hair combined the finger-wave style of the era with a sophisticated updo. The Lucky Sixpence created a bespoke hairpiece using vintage pieces.
A Burgh Island Wedding With Ceremony Moon Arch
Brompton Buds created an amazing ceremony moon display using the soft colour palette and incorporating Lillies and pampas grass instead of the more familiar feathers. Keeping that soft and romantic feel.
A Statement Centrepiece
The table setting consisted of a beautiful mint table cloth and matching napkins. Stylish gold-rimmed glass plates and wine glasses created a glamourous and luxurious feel. With gold cutlery to complement the effect..
Stationery was a beautiful soft mint and gold colour with a geometric design to complement the theme. Geometric coasters that contained guest’s names completed the look.
Cocktail Hour With Cake
Claire’s Sweet Temptations made a beautiful, simple but elegant 3-tier iced cake. With 2 mint coloured tiers and one white tier with a gold leaf geometric print design, for that nod to the art deco period.
Glamour & Romance By The Mermaid Pool
The mermaid pool with its decked jetty that leads into the ocean and its small shingle beach is the perfect setting for romantic Bride and Groom portraits.
Sunset On the Beach
The beautiful golden sandy beach with the sparkling blue ocean is the perfect setting to end the day. Just don’t get caught out by the tide. There’s a reason why it’s known as the part-time island.
