Glitzy Glamour

Theme: Hollywood Glamour



Hollywood’s luxe feel is something plenty of us crave and this divine shoot makes us long for the bright lights and endless glamour even more. Styled by Moments in Vintage and captured by We Are Twine, this shoot epitomises the timeless opulence favoured by Hollywood’s darlings. Lavish gold, deep reds and crystal chandeliers take us straight into the romance, and we never want to leave.

“Brides love to see what is possible on their magical day, rather than just seeing the trends of today,” explains Holly at VIP Bridal. “We really wanted to play on this idea and showcase something that is classy and glamorous, but with a unique edge to appeal to brides.”




The location, Hillstone St Lucia, had just the right tone for the day. Surrounded by rolling green hills and stunning hedges, the classic-themed rooms were ideal to showcase the Hollywood theme. The grand preparation room was just the icing on the cake.



For the bride, striking red lips pair with dark, smoky eyes, a nod to looks we’ve seen on red carpet starlets for decades. “Hollywood glamour to me is high class, pizzazz and the wow factor,” says Holly of VIP Bridal Beauty. “I wanted to step out of the box a little and not go the ever-so-seen ‘natural’ look.” To soften the bride’s look, her hair was twirled into a slightly messy French twist. Chic, understated romance – we love.





The bride looked utterly resplendent in the Valentina gown from When Freddie Met Lilly. A deep V neckline and split give a modern edge to the classic and feminine vintage lace, while the gown’s silhouette accentuates the bride’s figure in true red carpet style. Statement earrings finish off the glam, showstopper effect. The groom, too, looks movie-star ready in his suit, also from When Freddie Met Lilly. Dark tones are timeless, adding a masculine tone of elegance to the affair.






An abundance of Academy Award-gold, timber and crystal chandeliers created a look straight off the silver screen. Sequin-dressed tables and ambient candlelight adds romance, while gold cutlery echoes the sentiments of the Hollywood golden age.





Stationery, too, used this colour scheme; Eliza from Designs by Eliza used glitter and classic black to create the glam feel. “I was thrilled about creating something vibrant, diverse and simply gorgeous,” she says. “Beautiful gold glitter suited our theme perfectly, and is such a luxurious touch to any wedding.”




And you can’t have a party without cake – this four-tier extravaganza features hand-piping and delicate gold leaf in a marriage of old-world charm and modern splendour. Deliberately Delicious chose soft pink and gold as their colour swatch, and we love how it fits in with the endless miles of glitter.






The captured images had a dreamlike, movie-star feel, as Amanda from We Are Twine explains. “I wanted to capture a love story of our bride and groom,” she explains, “slightly reminiscent of movie-star quality.”

We think Tisa sums it up best: “With images as good as these, the happy couple are sure to live happily ever after.”
