Wedding Inspiration: Sensational Savoy Styled Shoot for Genevieve Magazine

Hello Beautiful,

This sensational video by Urban Cinematography, commanded my attention this morning and I just had to get my hands on it for you instantly!

Genevieve Magazine “The Savoy Shoot” from Urban Cinematography on Vimeo.

I love to be stopped in my tracks and inspired and this styled shoot at The Savoy London, has done exactly that.

The shoot was styled and designed by Seyi Olusanya of Once Upon a Destination, for Nigerian publication, Genevieve Magazine.

The wedding dream team does it again, consisting of the likes of clever styling by Seyi Olusanya, creative photography by Jide Alakija, sweet treats by Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium (Ps I can see you hiding Elizabeth!), flowers by Essential Couture, wedding dresses from Kosibah and bridesmaid dresses by TwoBirds Bridesmaids, to name but a mere few. (You may even recognise some of the suppliers from Grace styled shoot, in May 2013!)

With effortlessly gorgeous models, an intelligent collaboration of superbly talented; and some of my favourite suppliers in the wedding industry. PLUS with the stunning backdrop of the elegant and seductive Savoy, it was inevitable that the final piece would look and ‘feel’ so exquisite.

To the entire team involved with this immense blend of class, luxury and modern style: Standing ovation from Nu Bride – take a virtual bow!

Ps. I LOVE the use of pink and the bridal millinery headpieces – gorgeous!
