vintage aristocratic wedding

From Photographer Dmitry Pavlov “When it’s cold outside an indoor wedding calls for seasonal warm and rich colors bringing to mind a cozy fireside whilst the snow falls outside. Inspired by this feeling we based the color palette for this vintage aristocratic wedding inspiration shoot on deep emerald, burgundy, pomegranate, antique gold, vintage milk lace, and shades of chocolate, cappuccino, and truffle woven into an elegant style filled with the spirit of nobility.”

“We filled our scenes with grace, restraint, and elegance. The fragility, timidity, and tenderness of the bride contrasts the virility of the groom. Alex and Katherine were an incredibly harmonious and sensual couple to photograph… like a crystal vase cherished by the gentle groom.

For the venue we chose a cozy room 19th century brick walls, large arched windows, and lots of different textures to work with. It was perfect for our atmosphere of vintage nobility. For the décor we used antiques like the mirror in a wrought-iron frame. The chairs and small round cake table were originally from the 1920s in addition to the silver earrings worn by our bride.”

For Catherine we used a weightless lace robe for her boudoir look complete with a delicate hairpiece that was crafted especially for this editorial. We used light and natural makeup and searched long and hard for the perfect wedding dress, eventually finding one made of fine lace with long sleeves and a fully open back. For her bridal look we added a wine colored lipstick and a wreath of wintry flowers in her hair which looked perfect against her copper curls.

For Alex we had him look slightly more careless in the morning with just a vest and added a blazer in a greenish-grey for the ceremony and reception portions of the shoot.”

“We adhered to our color palette throughout the design including the ring box made of aged wood with dry moss inside, the stationery which we did in burgundy and chocolate tones, and the marbleized emerald cake with gold lead. Perfection is in the details!”
