The Chace Hotel Wedding Photo Shoot
I do love a Photo Shoot, and as a Wedding Florist this is an opportunity to use a little creative flair! On this occasion it was on a lovely crisp winter morning in January. A group of local wedding suppliers met at The Chace Hotel in Coventry, which is a beautifully restored Victorian Manor featuring landscaped gardens and an elegant oak-panelled lounge, offering the perfect backdrop for a wedding shoot.
We all met in the newly decorated Laura Ashley Bridal suite where Stacey, the Make up Artist got straight to work on Kimberlee the model. Then myself, Meg from Meg Quick Photographer, Jo from Bridal Reloved in Coventry, Kerry from Kerry’s Cake’s and Treat’s and Zoë from Coventry Wedding Cars got to work on showcasing our work for Meg to photo.
The theme of the day was Winter Woodland; the wedding bouquet I had designed had a variety of foliage and texture, using seasonal flowers of hyacinths, tulips, and waxflower in soft whites and creams and a hint of blue with thistle and finished with a pale blue silk ribbon.
Kimberlee our model wore two gowns through the day, a sparkly A line dress was by Mori Lee and a lace gown wore later in the day by Lusan Mandongus, both were provided by Bridal Reloved wedding boutique in Coventry.
The cake by Kerry’s Cake and Treats featured a hand made sugar rose and foliage, a frosty blue lustre finished tier and delicate sugar ruffles with a hand died silk ribbon which matched with the bouquet. The handmade wooden hoop is available to hire from Kerry and is suitable to fit a 3-4 tier cake or even a 2 tier stand that sits on another stand. Surrounding by a decorated hoop it makes it a fantastic statement piece for any wedding!
As it was a gorgeous blue sky day, we ventured outside with the Classic Cream Beauford, a perfect car for any wedding in Coventry, Rugby or surrounding areas which comes with its own chauffer, and perfect for transporting Brides on their wedding day. It also has a convertible rear top, which protects the Bride from wind and rain during the journey, but can be lowered in seconds for photo opportunities
