For anyone who’s ever dreamed of having a fairytale wedding – here it is in full regencycore wedding style that was inspired in part by ‘The Crown” and “Spencer” as well as of course by the late Princess Diana’s unforgettable elegance, grace, and style. Captured by Laning Photography all around the grandiose mansion property of The Olana, this styled regencycore wedding editorial is a total vision of delicate blooms galore flowered by Kate McLeod Studio. An invitation suite of scripted lettering and ornate emblems designed by Gates Paper Company set the tone for a timelessly romantic wedding day down to the Marie Antoinette illustrations and floral-trimmed cake that was beautifully baked by Creme de la Creme Cake Company in four stately layers, emblazoned with a traditional monogram design.
As if we’re looking at the steps of Buckingham Palace, we expected Lady Diana herself to be donning this romantic, flowing ballgown and regal crown – a bridal look fit for a royal wedding plucked right from the racks of StarDust Celebrations. A sapphire engagement ring, reminiscent of Princess Di’s iconic ring, was the perfect finishing touch to this stately affair. This one, provided by Clean Origin, is completely guilt-free since their lab-grown diamonds are 100% ethical! This bride model’s whole look was complemented with hair and makeup styled by the artists of Grand Slam Glam Hair + Makeup in soft glam makeup that radiates her beauty from within paired with an updo fit for a queen. Read on for notes from a few of the creatives that brought this regencycore wedding editorial from our Fall/Winter 2022 issue to life and keep scrolling to see the behind-the-scenes video footage captured by Reverent Wedding Films of the entire elegant day. Cheers!

From Isabel with Gates Paper Company: “At Gates Paper Company, we take time to think outside the box and create something unique for each couple we work with. We love getting to know a couple’s wedding style and translating that into our art. When we were given this mood board, we were so excited about the classic elegant romance with a unique twist – our favorite combination. For the classic romance, we wanted to balance elements of regal architecture with lavish florals. For the unique twist, we wanted to add some houndstooth as a nod to Diana Spencer 80’s fashion. This was such a fun project and was definitely right up our alley!”
From Jamie with Creme de la Creme Cake Company: “I wanted to create something that was very vintage, throwback to the Royal Wedding look but twist it up with a modern monogram and flowers with color.”
From Kate with Kate McLeod Studio: “It was so much fun to play off of the vision and design with the beautiful Olana in the backdrop. Everything we created had an overall romantic feel. I really wanted to create a garden setting, something you might find on the royal grounds. We used a variety of roses and multiple colors and sizes, lisianthus, sweet pea, ranunculus. These blooms helped create movement throughout the design.”
