Styled shoot: Emerald Luxe
We love this fresh and super-stylish approach to the classic white and green colour palette. Bursting with opulence and romance it's one for the scrapbook!

When Mercedes Gale from 4YParty Weddings & Events plans a styled shoot, she certainly likes to shake things up! "Representation in the wedding industry is so important and this shoot was a chance for me to inspire the more mature couples tying the knot," she says. So she decided to put together a project to celebrate and offer wedspiration to couples who may have waited for the kids to be older before getting married, those who are renewing their vows and have the wedding day they always wanted, and those who just haven't been ready to tie the knot until now.
These stunning shots features an opulent rustic luxe style, with emerald green and glittering gold bringing out the freshness of Bromley Court's dark wooden decor. This is perfectly paired with elegant Chiavari chairs placed for the setup in the venue's Garden Restaurant, which just oozes luxury with its mirrors and numerous chandeliers. The bride and groom are real couple Dupe and Stanley. They're dressed to perfection and looking flawless, complete with stunning handmade jewellery and hair accessories. The images are truly brought to life by the sand ceremony and harpist whose beautiful music you can almost hear floating on the air.
Mercedes says, "This shoot couldn't have been the success it was without all of the suppliers involved, and we all hope that our shoot inspires those who are traditionally under represented in the industry."
