Kentfield Estate wedding: modern Asian wedding photography

Luxurious yet natural, opulent yet fresh – a Kentfield Estate wedding has it all!

The wonder of the outdoors and the beauty of nature with ancient, native woodlands and a dreamy lake providing the fabulous backdrop influenced the look and feel of the shoot. The team was inspired to create something that avoided the typical ‘rustic’ look and instead was sensuous, rich and incredibly indulgent.

To bring the look to life, quality was most definitely the key. Trays edged in gold held the most delectable selection of canapés, coupe glasses were filled with champagne, jeweled macarons, lush florals, heavyweight stationery with flowing script, an iconic Aston Martin and THAT cake all fitted perfectly with the natural-luxe style.

Our bride wore a show-stopping, full-skirted gown and vivid Aruna Seth shoes with exquisite embellishments. Her bridal look was utterly elegant with perfectly groomed hair, classic drop earrings and a statement red lip.

The colour palette for the shoot was rooted in nature with greens playing a starring role. These tones were perfect for representing both luxury and organic beauty. The white and gold accents were the perfect foil for the greens bringing both opulence and purity into the colour palette.

Kentfield was the most fitting location for the shoot. This private estate sits on the edge of the North Downs and is alive with pasture, wildflower meadows and native woodlands. The 4-acre lake is such a fantastic setting and the fact that the venue is also a working estate that farms in a sympathetic way, producing food of the finest quality also fitted the shoot brief to perfection.

The flowers for the shoot included the most luxurious seasonal blooms including peonies, anemones, roses and lilies plus plenty of bold greenery. Everything was opulent in the extreme with flowers cascading from bowls across tabletops and tumbling from tall glass candelabras that had been wrapped in ribbon to match the colour palette.

When it comes to standout elements, the amazing geode cake has to top the list. The rich emerald interior, edged with gold would make a wedding centrepiece that guests would never forget.  The fringed cake with cameo overtones is just as special and would fit a more traditional wedding perfectly.

Any bride looking for styling tips will have lots to choose from with this shoot that proves just how chic country settings can be. The bold yet traditional stationery is the perfect starting point for the day and this is then continued with all those expected wedding elements being given an extra twist or flourish. Add a slick of gold to the top of a macaron, add another tier to a wedding cake, hire in luxurious chair or flatware to add another dimension to a bare table… The choice is yours!
