This stunning styled shoot by the team from Giant Invitations caught our attention recently. Being huge fans of period drama, this dreamy wedding resonated with us. It’s a Victorian wedding, perfectly capturing the romantic and classic aesthetic of the era. The colour scheme was beige, burgundy, cream and green. 

The team from Giant Invitation put together a wonderful story to accompany this shoot, and we’re totally in love! Read on for the details. 

Taking a page from the past, this dreamy and intimate wedding theme was inspired by the vintage style of the 1900s. ‘Victorian Dream’ celebrates the fantasy of ethereal romance with a soft and classic colour palette.

Captured in the heritage-listed Rippon Lea Estate, this love story starts with the deeply in love couple spending quality time together in the drawing room. They spend time in adoration of each other, playing the piano and dancing together. The lovebirds dance their way into the conservatory, where they enjoy the beautifully cultivated plants in the soft and romantic light that shines through the glass ceilings.
