Barnsley House in the Cotwolds was the perfect backdrop for this contemporary romantic editorial. Working alongside a wonderful team of suppliers, we created a beautifully elegant and timeless wedding day with the most gorgeous Bride and Groom.
I really wanted to speak to the modern couple, whilst still keeping the contemporary romance and elegance of a classic wedding. The Bride wore an absolute showstopper by Suzanne Neville, it had the serious wow factor. This chic look from the Flores Collection paired sheer modern lace detailing with the billowing textured “Divine” skirt and train, the perfect day to night dress. Our bride’s look was completed with hair and makeup by Jo Adams from Hair & Makeup
I wanted to keep the colour palette quite muted through the use of omnipresent grey, cream and blush tones throughout various design elements including the linen, furniture, stationery and floral design.
Gemma from Iris & Co designed incredible floral arrangements. She kept the look soft and elegant with blush tones accented throughout the tablescape, bouquet and fireplace installation. The blush tones were further reflected in the gorgeous hand dyed silk ribbon by Pom Pom Blossom used on the bridal bouquet.
LouPaper created the exquisite stationery suite and menus printed on handmade paper with gorgeous deckle edges to give a unique touch. The menus were layered with vellum featuring hand drawn calligraphy to add elegant detail. Gold eyelets were used to secure the layers together to add a gorgeous gilt to the finishing touch.
The tablescape was designed with modern romantics in mind. The soft blush palette was combined with white and hints of gold on the tablescape, a classic and beautiful colour combination.
The cake, designed by Cakebuds, was a delicious piece of edible art combining the classic elegance of white fondant with refined modern textural blush detailing.
Everything about the look was effortlessly stylish and incredibly timeless.
