Romantic Pink Ombre City Wedding at 10-11 Carlton House Terrace
When it comes to London wedding venues, Edit Venue 10-11 Carlton House Terrace holds a special place in our hearts. With large bright rooms, high ceilings and elegant period features it provided the perfect location for this romantic ombre city wedding inspiration shoot styled by Natasha at Pearline Events. We are feeling all the feels over that statement ombre floral runner, and expertly captured by Maxeen Kim Photography highlights the beautiful details of this special venue.
The standout elements were the wonderful ombre rose floral runner and fireplace arrangement, designed by Queen of Hearts Floral Design. The exquisite, bespoke bridal gown designed by Oui Madam, which included intricate embellishments on the shoulders, a lace train and a beautiful low back, which makes such a statement.The stunning rose quartz, agate slices used for the bride and groom place settings all created by Scritto are also striking. This all looked so fantastic against the beautiful features within Carlton House Terrace. Each element of this shoot helped to showcase this stunning location.
I styled the beautiful wedding table using luxurious silver tablecloths and striking napkins in muted lavender to add impact. I mixed this with exquisite glass charger plates, vintage glass candle holders, champagne crystal champagnes glasses and soft pink wine glasses. I also included a range of my own candles in soft pink, lavender and ivory to work with the ombre effect in the rose table runner. Using colour effectively but without being overpowering.
What was the colour palette?
The colour palette was inspired by a crystal wallpaper mural that I saw which included beautiful colours of soft pink, lavender, and shimmering tones. I loved the pastel tones in the wallpaper and wanted the shoot to feature these colours.
I choose a colour palette of soft pink,fuchsia,lavender, cream and a hint of purple. I felt that these colours complemented each other well and looked so pretty. The shimmering tones provided elegant details with a hint of sparkle and the reflective surfaces added depth.
The table setting was key as I knew this would be the best way to translate these beautiful pastel tones and bring everything together. I wanted to use the table florals to create an ombre effect, as a striking centre piece, whilst using the soft colours in the stationery and other table details. All the other elements of the shoot needed to complement the chosen colour palette and I carefully selected talented suppliers who could deliver this brief and had an excellent eye for detail.
Tell us about the floral design & decor
We wanted to use the flowers to add drama without being overpowering to enhance the already beautiful interior at Carlton House Terrace.Queen of Hearts Floral design provided a 10ft table runner made up exclusively of exquisite David Austin roses graduating from the shades of cream, light pink, lilac, fuchsia and purple, creating a stunning ombre effect, along the length of the table.
The fireplace arrangement was designed to add impact and to complement the all rose table runner. It was mainly foliage including honey bracelet, eucalyptus, and leather fern. For touches of colour lilac delphinium, iris and lavender were added. Queen of Hearts Floral design also added some blush roses at the bottom, also used in the table arrangement, to bring the look together.
The bridal bouquet used bright and vibrant colours. The bouquet consisted of orange alstroemeria, peach gerbera daisy, large garden roses in shades of deep orange, purple dahlia and cala lilies. These chosen flowers worked to add a pop of colour within the setting and complement the wonderful bridal gown created by Oui Madam Bridal.
Any advice for recreating this look?
Don’t be afraid of using colour. Choose colours that complement each other and bring it through in different details in your wedding. For example, the soft colours in this shoot were not only translated in the flowers but also through the candles, table linen,glassware, gorgeous cake and the beautiful stationery.
Use different materials to add depth and dimension. For example, the rose quartz place settings added a reflective surface and complemented the glass charger plates that I choose to add texture.
Work with your venues aesthetics. You don’t need to go over the top with elaborate tall table flowers in a large venue, let the flowers speak for themselves. The beautiful low floral arrangement we used, created such an impact with its colour and length and really complemented the beautiful interiors at Carlton House Terrace.
