Sofia Richie Inspired - Styled Shoot

You may have spotted last June that the fashion-forward Sofia Richie tied the knot with Elliot Grainge, in a beautiful part of France. Sofia was the talk of all the bridal columns with her wedding dresses (yes, that's plural), and her incredibly chic wedding day.

The wonderful Becky from Legendary Makeup was quick off the mark, and wanted to create a styled shoot that was reminiscent of Richie's day, matching her luxury look. The celeb's personal stylist (Liat Baruch) has explained the style Sofia was wanting to achieve, “We were trying to elevate but stay young, be feminine, aspirational but also attainable—a little bit of everything while staying ageless and classic,” Baruch reveals.

With that in mind, Becky asked some of the best local suppliers to get involved to create this Sofia Richie inspired shoot.

Set in the beautiful hotel and grounds of Worlington Hall in Suffolk, a building over 450 years old, emphasis was drawn on creating resemblances to Sofia's own wedding day, with black and white clean, classic styling and personal monograms.

When Becky asked me to get involved, I already had the perfect dress in mind for the shoot. This simple high neck dress from Richard Designs, similar to that of Sofia's, is modern, with slinky satin and clean lines. A clever twist of fabric at the neck reveals a subtle keyhole neckline as you move. The statement halterneck bow on the back is revealed as you turn, for an elegant dress full of personality and youth.

For makeup, Becky kept it naturally simple, focusing on dewy, flawless skin that seems to glow from within. Softly defined eyes added a touch of depth without overshadowing the natural beauty, while a delicate peach lip offered a hint of colour. The overall effect was effortlessly chic and breathtakingly beautiful.

The award-winning Katrina Kelly, followed the brief and created a sleek, sculpted, low bun for the bride, as Sofia's was. It effortlessly swept the hair away, revealing a fresh, radiant face. Katrina masterfully achieved this modern and timeless style.

The florals were a huge part of the day, with the fabulous Flowers by Basil and Pip and The Gypsy Shed collaborating to create the most incredible flower arch using white roses, spray roses, chrysanthemums and delphiniums. The bouquet featured lily of the valley, along with hyacinths, with a matching buttonhole for the groom. All inkeeping with the opulence of the shoot.

The devil is in the detail, and Tasha from Styled by Lulabelles Cambridge perfected the tablescape to that of the original inspiration with clean white silk centrepieces, and gold-beaded charger plates. The floating candles added some romance to the layup. Adding a touch of authenticity with the napkins from The Embroidered Napkin Company, who actually provided the napkins on Sofia's day itself. Sarah, the creative force behind White Orchid Print and Design, played a pivotal role by crafting a unique monogram that became a central theme in every detail of our photoshoot. From the stationery to the cake, the napkins, and the backdrop, Sarah's touch infused a cohesive and personalised charm.

Amber from Amber's Bakes and Cakes expertly created a clean three-tier white cake, with black ribbon to be in keeping with the style. Flowers matching that of the bouquet were draped down the tiers to incorporate the look, as well as repurposing the table centrepieces to place around the cake too. A great tip for your wedding!

The amazing Emma from Weddings by Emma Olivia masterfully captured the images from the day, ensuring the shots were similar to those released by the famous couple last year, as well as highlighting aspects of the day that would serve as inspiration for future couples to match the theme.
