Set in Manchester city centre is the beautifully renovated Stock Exchange Hotel. This chic venue provided the perfect backdrop for this glamorous styled shoot. “The property oozes style and luxury while retaining its original Art Deco and Victorian features, it also incorporates a modern spiral staircase of dreams and a penthouse suite to rival all others,” shares Maria from Detail. “Working with a building where every detail has been considered, the styling needed to be pared back, in an understated yet luxurious way. The roses added a sense of opulence to the table setting with touches of gold through the cutlery, accessories and bridal cape. A mix of marble and black candleholders with tapered candles combined with the black and white stationery by PaperGrace looked gorgeous. To complete the look, we opted for a triptych of stunning cakes provided by Marie Antoinette Cake Design that tied in with the cool modern interior.”
The incredible gold cape was provided by Moon Child Bridal. “It added the right amount of decadence to the shoot while the tulle dress and frilled veil leant a modern Italian feel to the ceremony images,” explains Maria. “Charlotte Mill’s bow-fronted peep toe shoes were the perfect accompaniment for a splash of modern and old-world glamour. Amanda Makeup Official used NYX vegan make-up products to create our model’s look, keeping a very soft and natural look to start with, gold highlights to complement the gold cape and a stronger lip for the evening look.”
