Step into a world of elegance and romance as we take you straightaway behind the scenes of a recent Fine art wedding editorial at the historic Orleans House Gallery in London. I had the honour of being invited by my dear friend and talented wedding photographer, Desiree A. North (@desireeanorth), to join her as the second photographer in capturing the breathtaking beauty of this London wedding editorial.
Meet Grace, the visionary wedding planner behind By Grace Weddings (@bygraceweddings), who also meticulously curated every detail to bring this fine art wedding inspiration to life in what feels like a French winter palace. Together, we worked alongside a team of immensely talented wedding vendors, pouring our hearts and souls into making this dreamy wedding editorial a reality. Join us on this captivating journey as we share the magic and also document the unforgettable moments of this extraordinary day at the Orleans House Gallery in London.
To crown it all, our wedding editorial got featured! I was so excited to receive the news that Your London Wedding Magazine (@countyweddingmagazines) has this in their July/August 2023 issue. All photos featured in the magazine are beautifully edited in Desiree’s signature style. Feel free to click the link to check out the online version. Below is a summary of what a lovely time I had as the second wedding photographer at this Fine Art Wedding at Orleans House Gallery London.
Orleans House & Gallery, London, UK (@orleanshousegallery) is the gorgeous, licensed wedding venue and is also where this London wedding editorial took place. This wonderful venue has such a rich history dating back to 1720. They built the place to attract royalty, and you’ll also feel like royalty within its walls.
The wonderful wedding planner By Grace Weddings (@bygraceweddings) put together this wonderful Fine Art Wedding at Orleans House Gallery London wedding editorial. Grace wanted to replicate the idea of a wedding at a French winter palace. The gorgeous photos from this shoot are a testament to what a success that was because she did such a great job.
Grace was incredible in orchestrating everything flawlessly while also ensuring a seamless and enjoyable experience for all involved. She says she got her inspiration from former clients and, after that, wanted to bring a destination wedding home to London. The goal was for the couple to be able to share their special destination wedding day and also be able to celebrate with their loved ones nearer to home.
Hannah of Knock Knock Penny Studio (@knockknockpennystudio) created a masterpiece of intricate design. She did this by combining elegance and creativity in perfect harmony for the stationery of this photoshoot. The menus and stationery had beautiful scalloped edges. They also came in a lovely pastel blue that celebrates the winter theme of this London wedding editorial.
Rose & Mary’s of Rose & Mary Florists (@roseandmaryuk) have an artistic flair and dedication to perfection. This was evident in every intricate arrangement and bouquet that adorned the event. You’ll also love how they transformed the venue into a breathtaking floral wonderland. They did this using anemones, roses, muscari, eucalyptus, hydrangea, and hellebores.
The attention to the bride’s look cannot be over-emphasized, and she looked divine. Jen Hawkins of Jennifer Hawkins Hair & Make-Up Artist (@jenhawkins_hmua) worked tirelessly to make her look and also feel amazing. This ensured that she radiated happiness in every shot, and due to this, the pictures looked wonderful.
Desiree of Desiree A. North Photography (@desireeanorth) used her keen eye and creative vision to turn each frame at this event into a cherished masterpiece. It was a pleasure to work alongside Desiree as the second wedding photographer and also capture the behind-the-scenes.
Bradley and Grace from Keeley Wedding Films (@keeleyweddingfilms) also artfully pieced together the highlights of this editorial fabulously. They showed talent and dedication in this remarkable video, and I always love an opportunity to work with them.
For the wedding cake at this wedding editorial, Dolce Lusso Artisan Cakes (@dolcelussocakes) crafted a magnificent 5-tier white and blue number that captivated everyone. The delectable creation came with handmade sugar flowers and furthermore was packaged with pure silk bows. You’ll also love the gold-leaf topping.
In conclusion, I am also grateful for all the other wedding vendors, whose details you can find out below. I had such a lovely time working with the vendors at this wedding editorial. So, I hope to work with all of them again sometime. The sheer professionalism and passion displayed by each vendor brought a sense of joy and also added lots of excitement to the entire process. This Fine Art Wedding Editorial at Orleans House Gallery London was a delight to document.
