Let the Social Season Begin
Bridgerton is set in the extravagant Regency era and focuses on the social season of England’s aristocratic families. For this shoot the team took those ideas and reintroduce them to the modern wedding world.
Keeping with the Regency era fashion while trying to modernize it as wearable for today’s couples was key to this shoot. The models are styled in gowns which have an empire cut, but in the chic minimal style that are trending now. An ornate embroidered gown was also chosen and paired with thigh-high lace up boots with glam make-up. We used heirloom, vintage wedding rings, but paired them with large geometric statement earrings and funky sunnies.
Back in those days most couples only had immediate family in attendance for their wedding. Much like the micro-weddings of our current day pandemic weddings. The tablescape is a brunch set for twelve, since during that time period most weddings were celebrated in the morning followed by a late breakfast and would be for the entire wedding party.
The entire styling of this shoot was finding that gorgeous balance of pop and classical like a Billie Eilish song covered by a string quartet.
