Tom & Rebecca’s Bradbourne House Pre Wedding Shoot
Hey Folks! Today on the blog is Tom & Rebecca’s Bradbourne House, Pre Wedding shoot. Tom & Rebecca are due to tie the knot later this month in a 1920’s vintage themed day.
How did you decide on your venue? Bradbourne House was the first venue we visited and we fell in love with it as soon as we drove through the gates. The long driveway leading to the house and beautiful green surroundings felt like something out of a classic novel. We were even more captivated by the house itself, the red brick walls and grand rooms were exactly what we were looking for.
What theme have you chosen? We don’t have a rigid theme, but the overall feel for the day is classic 1920’s, lots of creams and peaches and simple decoration. We wanted it to look like a genuine 1920’s wedding and we love the elegance and styling of the novel The Great Gatsby. The bridesmaid’s dresses have a vintage feel and the groomsmen are in mismatching wool suits.
Which colours have you chosen and why? Our colours are British Racing Green and Rose Gold. Tom liked the idea of British Racing Green as the main colour for the day as it’s not a colour we’ve seen used at many weddings. My engagement ring, and our wedding rings are rose gold so we wanted to incorporate that into the wedding too. The bridesmaid’s dresses are dark green with delicate rose gold detailing and the flowers are creams and peaches with lots of dark green leaves.
Which flowers have you chosen and why? My bouquet is a classic 1920s waterfall style with white peonies, peach juliet roses, tuberose and vandela roses to tie in the creams and peaches and jasmine, freesia, hosta, ferns and eucalyptus populas to create a dark green train. The bridesmaids have hand tied bouquets with white peonies, juliet roses, talia roses, jasmine, ferns, hosta and eucalyptus populas. The flowers for the table are simple hand tied cream and peach roses in a bowl, we wanted to keep it simple with a homely feel.
