With its fabulous period features and intriguing romanticism, Dorfold Hall was the perfect backdrop to our Autumn gold creative photoshoot led by Red Floral Architecture. Rather than the russets, bronzes, and fiery, flaming shades that nature glories in at this time of year, we decided to present our ideas using a palette of Autumnal colours inspired by golden October light, gentle white frost, verdant green moss, copper leaves and the ghosts of lavendar. Dorfold Hall's magical quality highlighted our model's vampy appearance designed by Flossy and Leigh with exquisite jewellery by Eleventh Heaven and the haunting beauty of this seasonal showcase was captured beautifully by photographer Phil Drinkwater.
The hand-piping on the cake was inspired by the ornate plaster ceilings at Dorfold Hall and the plaque in the rococo gold frame took the current fashion for marbled cakes a step further and using edible paper I tried to create a look of part polished, part rough, pink granite.
The magnificent arrangements and room dressings by Red Floral Architecture were full of texture and interesting foliage with white and gold pumpkins, green moss, large succulents, game bird plumes and of course beautiful white flowers with touches of rose gold. The gold stags head featured on the cake and on the dressed stairs surrounded by dozens of twinkling candles.
Thanks to Debbie and Andrea for bringing an incredible team of professionals together and for co-ordinating the whole thing and to everyone at Dorfold Hall for being such wonderful hosts for the day.
