An Enchanted Place On The Hill

This afternoon we’re escaping to stunning Devon manor house, Boringdon Hall, which has been filled with beautiful blooms, a pretty vintage tea station and a gorgeous selection of handcrafted cakes. Our gorgeous blonde model looks divine in Claire Pettibone and we love that the team behind the shoot have fully embraced the hair crimpers to produce an ethereal, whimsical look.

Styling and prop hire is from the lovely Elle at Inspire Hire, whose work we always fall hard for – and if you’re nosy like us, after pinning this shoot, you can have a snoop at Elle’s stunning coastal home in this feature on our sister blog, Rock My Style.

You will most definitely need a cream tea to accompany your browsing though – especially after admiring the treats on offer here…

The Venue

A whimsical shoot set in a magical location. “Boringdon” means enchanted place on the Hill which is exactly what Boringdon Hall hotel is! I tried to reflect the magical feeling with the styling of this inspirational shoot. Mullioned windows, ancient stone, antique furniture and slate floors at the hotel create a beautifully textured backdrop for any celebration. The history of the building envelopes you as you walk around.

The Decor

With soft lavender table linens, textured napkins and wild and untamed florals from Emma Hewlett, displayed in rustic urns alongside with wooden candlesticks create an etherial and elegant table scape. The talented Nicola from The Pink Elephant Cake Company reflected the natural style in her semi naked cake and so on trend bunt cakes. Displayed on a dark wood table and decorated with trailing florals for a dessert table is something out of this world!

The Details

Our stationery carried through the soft lavender hues and romantic styling designed for us by Sincerely May. The Bridal House of Cornwall dressed our bride in beautiful Claire Pettibone dresses, and the girls from The Pop Up Salon created a relaxed and undone look for her hair and make up. As an alternative option for drinks, I created for a tea bar, complete with vintage copper tea samovar and pretty china! Who doesn’t love a good cup of tea?!
