Timelessly Elegant, Candlelit Wedding InspirationALEKSANDRA SASHINA PHOTOGRAPHY
I hope you have enjoyed the last few days festivities, relaxing and celebrating with your nearest and dearest. Since this is the season for celebration and magic, today’s shoot, all the way from Russia, is perfect! Planner, Olga Malieva, and the designers at White Zebra knew exactly how to style a wedding that combined timeless romance with a celebratory feel befitting of the date. Add some of the most jaw-droppingly beautiful florals by Viktoriya Nikolaeva and flawless photography by Aleksandra Sashina, and you have something truly unforgettable…..
Romantic candlelight gives the dark, dilapidated space at Cross-Photo Studio a sense of warmth and sets the scene perfectly for a moody mid-winter (or New Years Eve) wedding. The bride’s dreamy Helena Ammaniti wedding dress, with its ballgown silhouette, adds the required drama for such an occasion, whilst the groom looks dapper (but comfortable) in his classic tux with a twist from Costumecode.
But its the color palette that really brings it all together (and you may recognise it from these 11 stunning winter wedding color ideas) featuring deep plums and rich reds its muted vibrancy brings depth and a sense of luxury to the whole scene. Planner Olga Malieva shared, “The inspiration was the color Marsala – a noble, rich and passionate hue!”
It may no longer be the color of the year, but Marsala is still a favourite with us! This shoot is utterly enchanting so be sure to have your pinning finger ready as you scroll through these gorgeous images…..
Wow…. isn’t it just wow?? Like a modern day Anna Karenina! I love it. A huge thankyou, as always, to everyone behind the scenes who brought every detail together so seamlessly. But a special thankyou must go to photographer Aleksandra Sashina for capturing the beauty of it all so perfectly. To see more of her work pop across to her website at www.alse-foto.ru and be sure to follow her on Instagram & Facebook.
If this shoot has you swooning over its romantic opulence, then you should most definitely take a look at this lovely Great Gatsby wedding inspiration, and you might also want to have a peek at this beautiful vision in blue and peach. Or if it’s the timeless elegance that has inspired you, then you will definitely love this shoot at Sunstone Winery.
