Modern wedding elegance at the Charterhouse in London
I'm so excited to share some of the photos from this gorgeous shoot at The Charterhouse. A brilliant team of wedding creatives came together to create an effortlessly elegant editorial at this wedding venue in the heart of London.
The stunning Norfolk Cloister was the perfect setting for our elegant candle lit ceremony and reception, with its original doorways dating back to 1371. The leafy floral designs from Leigh Chappell Flowers filled with white blooms added a beautifully romantic touch to the space.
I wanted the invitation suite to allude to the play between the modern wedding details and designs and the history of the venue. Working with the contrast of modern set typography and organic fluid calligraphy, creating a modern sophisticated invitation suite. The design is offset with plenty of white space for a modern editorial feeling. Adding interest and texture with crisp white paper and a botanical vellum wrap which was created with a traditional pointed nib. Golden highlights were added to both the wedding suite and menu to tie the design together with the golden details in the styling.
For the tablescape I drew an elegant botanical runner by hand in gold ink. Bringing in the textures of the seasonal foliage and gold accents throughout the styling. The menu was printed on crisp vellum, adding a beautiful contrast to the hand dyed linen napkins by The Natural Dye Works.
I designed a ceremony banner filled with fluid calligraphy, acting as an organic soft backdrop to the elegant couple and clean lines of the bride’s dress. And oh how gorgeous that duchess satin A-line dress with a deep V-neckline front and back dress from Jesus Peiro is.
The banner was used again as a backdrop to the gorgeous wedding cakes by Vaani of Sugar Plum Bakes. She created a trio of lemon buttercream cakes. Each in a different finish to complement the rest of the shoot. It was great working so collaboratively with Vaani, exchanging ideas and seeing it all come together at the day. With Vaani’s hand drawn botanical pattern working beautifully with the foliage and illustrations in the wedding suite and botanical runner. And the gold stud finishes as a subtle nod to the wedding menu detail.
