Couple photoshoots and heritage properties are a match made in heaven! All that quaintness and an obvious grandeur of heritage properties just add to the overall vibe, making the subjects look as larger than life as the place itself. And as we talk about couple photoshoots and heritage properties, we have a very specific couple on mind who definitely aced the game with their choice of property and costumes both!
Well, you always have the option of taking it a notch higher by choosing a property that complements your personal style and this bride-to-be Dilm and her fiancee did exactly that for their recent engagement photoshoot. Here's everything we love about the striking photoshoot:
The couple zeroed down upon UWCV at Hycroft, a restored Edwardian mansion for their engagement photoshoot and we are so glad that it happened so. The imposing columns and pillars of the property brilliantly softened by the generous greens are a sight to behold. In all honestly, this is a rather unconventional backdrop for a bride-to-be dressed in traditional red lehenga which makes it an all the more interesting choice.
The subdued greys of the ancient Roman architecture beautifully transform into warm, muted gold interiors. There is just so much of pre-wedding photoshoot inspiration to be derived here.
It is Dilm's red Anita Dongre lehenga beautifully standing out against the understated greys of the locations that we are really smitten with. A pick from designer's "Jaipur Love" collection, the lehenga is graced with playful floral and elephant motifs printed on it. We especially love its Jade accents and also that sleeveless choli which adds on to the entire traditional-meets-modern vibe.
There is something really high fashion about the entire vibe of the shoot. In either a stroke of luck or next-level creative vision, the paneled finish of her lehenga's embroidery beautifully fuses with the architecture of the venue and we think the bride-to-be really did score one here in the style department!
Keeping up with the Edwardian vibe of the photoshoot, the bride-to-be Dilm has kept it minimal for her hair and makeup with a clean swept chignon, dewy skin, and nude mouth. Love how the overall effect here comes out to be something perfect for a white, day wedding, and yet goes beautifully with her red ensemble. Here's how you can recreate the look:
Well, didn't that get you scouting for a heritage property for your pre-wedding photoshoot?
