‘Gilded Elegance’ – Romantic Gold Wedding Inspiration
REBECCA YALE PHOTOGRAPHY
Today’s inspiration shoot is an enchanting ode to olde world European elegance that is jawdroppingly gorgeous! Beautifully blending romantic floral arrangements with lavish gold details to create a feminine, glamorous yet elegant look that I just know modern vintage brides everywhere will be inspired by. And whilst it was captured in the Summer, I can’t help but think the rich hints of red and glistening gold are just as inspiring for Autumn, so believe me when I say you really won’t want to miss a single detail of this exquisite editorial……
I will let the lady behind the vision, planner and designer, Taryn Leach tell you a little more about the location and inspiration for the shoot…. “Nestled in the lush, wooded eucalyptus trees atop the plunging seaside cliffs of Palos Verdes, California there sits a stunning chapel. Saint Francis, a breathtaking chapel built from old brick and carved stone, radiated an old-worldy beauty that you might expect to find in an intimate European village. It was hard to not imagine a more inspiring location for a shoot. With Old World beauty as the foundation of our design, we drew inspiration from art history and architectural movements in Europe during the medieval and renaissance time periods to create our concept.”
So sumptuous, I am completely in love aren’t you? Especially with the mismatched gold bridesmaids dresses! A huge thankyou to the wonderful creative team behind this collaboration, and especially to Rebecca Yale Photography for photographing the whole thing so flawlessly, and of course for allowing me to share it with you here. To see more of her work be sure to head across to her website www.rebeccayalephotography.com, and you can also follow her on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter & Pinterest.
And if the gorgeous gold in this shoot has you swooning you might want to take a peek at this romantic heirloom bridal shoot brimming with gold, or this coastal wedding editorial, or for something a little more seasonal you should have a look at this glamorous wedding inspiration full of rich Fall hues.
