Chic Weddings and Events

The Cutty Sark in Greenwich recently hosted a stunning wedding styled shoot, beautifully blending historical grandeur with contemporary elegance. The theme was centered around a classic black and white colour scheme, reflecting the sleek architecture of the dry berth. Gold accents were integrated to highlight the ship’s copper hull, adding a touch of glamour to the setting.

Our bride wore a graceful ball gown from Victoria’s Bridal Boutique. The dress featured a floral brocade fabric, modern square neckline, and a low back. A matching belt defined the natural waist completed with covered buttons extending to the end of the train. The final touch was a pearl headband perfectly complementing the beautiful necklace and earrings from COO Jewellers. She carried a stunning multi-height handtie bouquet of white roses and delicate white sweet peas to add texture.

Following the monochrome theme, our groom wore a classic black ‘Benetti’ tuxedo from Bennetts Menswear.

Elegant Venice mirrored dining tables from Options Great Hire ran underneath reflecting the hull of the ship with black Victoria Ghost chairs adding a contemporary touch. Gold-beaded charger plates, elegant glassware with gold detailing and gold cutlery elevated the table setting. Each place setting was completed with a black napkin with a contemporary black and white menu card from ByBlossom Stationery, finished with a long trailing black satin bow.

Floral arrangements were a focal point, featuring tall centrepieces filled with blousy white roses, hydrangeas, and peonies, complemented by trailing Phalaenopsis orchids in tall statement vases.  A mix of bud vases holding single stems of flowers run through the centre of the table creating depth and variation. The end of the table, a focal point as guests enter, was finished with a show-stopping cascading arrangement finished with twinkling candles that added a magical touch.

Inspired by the sleek lines of the ship’s hull and the industrial look of the dry dock, the cake created by Shelley’s Cakes featured a tall, sleek design iced in white. It was softened with iced stencilling echoing the detailing on the wedding dress and finished with an oversized black chiffon bow and tails, mirroring the elegance of the tablescape.

A freestanding contemporary table plan further added to the look featuring a gorgeous fresh floral arrangement at the base, finished with candles.

This shoot at The Cutty Sark showcased how timeless romance and modern sophistication can seamlessly come together, creating a breathtakingly beautiful wedding setting.
