“English Garden of Love”, A Styled Shoot
In a time when details are all the craze, it was an extra special treat to have the opportunity to incorporate historical elements and traditions in a shoot inspired by a historic setting, and for us, “English Garden of Love” was just that.
Set in front of the magnificent backdrop of the 1928 historic estate, The Peachtree House, “English Garden of Love” features the love story between a bride and groom and integrates Old English wedding traditions to further develop the couple’s adoring tale. This shoot highlights the existing architectural details and charming gardens while capturing the essence of the romantic English Countryside.
“English Garden of Love” was carefully designed to frame the outstanding beauty of the estate’s white brick exterior and to create an intimate and formal affair to celebrate a love so sweet. The elegant design features loose arrangements of floral and greenery to reflect the diversity of the flowering environments in the natural English landscape.
Our favorite part of the design? Incorporating Old English wedding traditions passed down through time. The ornate five tier wedding cake highlights a traditional reception event called a “ribbon pull” where a sterling silver charm is tied to a ribbon between layers of the cake for each bridesmaid. Each bridesmaid eagerly pulls one ribbon before the bride and groom share their first slice of cake to claim a future of good promise to herself. It’s also Old English tradition for a bride to carry a horseshoe streaming with ribbons for good luck, while courters are known to gift Lovespoons to their love interest in order to express their affection. Oh, how we were so grateful for the simple reminder of the importance of tradition and how many of today’s wedding traditions have been passed down from generation to generation!
