As you’ll know if you’re a regular reader of wedding blogs, one of the most enduring trends to emerge over recent years, is a lean towards fine art weddings.

What started as a revival in film photography has evolved into a penchant for watercolour florals, raw silk and chiffon textures, hand-written stationery and classical decor.

And today, we’ve got some gorgeous fine art inspiration from some of the best wedding vendors in London.

About the Shoot

Flourish & Fragile. These two words were the foundations for this inspirational shoot. 

The inspiration behind this shoot came from the beautiful venue setting and all of the talent working on two words to direct their creativity; flourish & fragile.

From the floral design, make-up & hair right down to the beautiful paperie, each designer worked from these two basic concepts and the gorgeous Fulham Palace setting to build something simple, elegant and timeless as well as connect the design of the wedding to its surroundings and emphasise the beauty of the venue.
