Ok ok we have to admit, we are HUGE fans of Bridgerton and *wink wink* the Duke. If you’re anything like us, you’re a hopeless romantic obsessed with love stories, romantic movies and pretty much any and everything from Jane Austen. We’ve watched Pride and Prejudice so many times, we can’t even count…it’s just too good.
So you could only imagine when we saw the snippets of Bridgerton rolling in, how ecstatic we were to watch the series and explore Julia Quinn’s bestselling novels! And omg, did it not disappoint.
If you’ve seen the series or read the books, you would know that the drama takes place in the Regency era London in 1813, centering on the aristocratic Bridgerton family. But our friends over in the beautiful island of Jamaica decided to recreate their own version of this classic with their “Bridgerton inspired cliffside elopement”, and yes friends, its as exquisite as it sounds!
So do yourself a favour love and keep reading for all the gorgeous inspiration from Borghinvilla Wedding Venue.
FROM THE WEDDING PLANNER & DESIGNER:
Inspired by the Netflix favourite- Bridgerton, this style shoot was infused with Regency-Era English style with a modern tropical twist. The Duke of Borghinvilla and the Duchess of Kingston invited guests by formal invitations.
With breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea, Borghinvilla was the perfect spot for this style shoot.
Purple Wisteria adored the ceremony gazebo where the couple would take the “famous” cover photo. Gold Chiavari chairs with diamond accessories. The ceremony was in the open air on the sandy beach area of the cliffs in Jamaica. The bride’s bouquet was ivy, white & lavender roses, ferns and assorted greenery.
A live painter was present for the ceremony to capture the momentous event.
The groom wore a tailored tux and cravat reminiscent of English 1800’s, when all outfits were hand sewn by the local tailor or seamstress. The Bride wore a corseted dress with lace detail and a diamond tiara a top of her head. Later in the evening she changed her hair and added a handmade silk flower.
The stationery mimicked traditional Royal wording with wax seal and all. The couples crest, which was also on the dance floor was throughout the stationery.
Following the reception, the couple took many photos on the cliffs as well as the gardens.
White Phalanopsis Orchids, white hydrangea, white and lavender roses filled the reception table. Gold Cutlery, candles and glass wear covered the table. Palm Trees outlined the bride and groom table. Hanging assorted greenery and wisteria hung down from the roof tops.
Sparklers illuminated the reception backdrop for the first dance just like the series. Afternoon Tea, romantic candles and an old fashioned sofa for cocktail seating.
A photo of Price Philip and the Queen of England on their official tour of Jamaica sat a top the bar which served luxuries such as champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries. Lastly, mini cakes hand designed with edible gold edging.
We hope that you enjoy!
