Barnett Hill Hotel LGBTQI+ wedding inspiration with incredible flower decoration & floral wedding dress

An inspiration shoot surrounded by love, colours, florals, patterns and textures at Barnett Hill Hotel.

Barnett Hill Hotel is an exclusive use wedding venue in Surrey. The mansion house is surrounded by 26 acres of beautifully manicured gardens perfect for couples' portraits, whilst the interior includes several rooms for hosting intimate and large weddings. If you're looking for fairytale vibes, you've found it!


The floral explosion wedding inspiration included a flower-patterned table cloth, complementing and working well with the flower stem table decorations. The place settings included gold rim charger plates, black and gold cutlery, and gold-rimmed flutes with purple goblets. Plus, the floral chairs and lamps added lots of colour and texture to the shoot, maximising the floral theme.  The stunning cake and desserts had been designed around the floral wedding dress. Amy Verse Weddings illustrated some beautiful calligraphy on the wedding stationery and Kath from Internal colour incorporated dried petals into the resin place settings.


Clara wore the most stunning dress called Rose, supplied by Bridal Indulgence and designed by Netherland designer, Atelier Edwin Oudshoorn Bridal. Sophie Falinsku Makeup gave Clara a soft natural glowy makeup look and her Hollywood wavy hair was done by the talented Occasion Hair by Megan. We dressed Marley in something more fun and that represented him. The forest green trousers enhanced the leaves from Clara's dress and the addition of a unique floral collar to his plain white t-shirt really added that wedding vibe without being too formal. And if you're looking for a celebrant as unique as you and your outfit, Rock My Wedding Recommended celebrant Aggie will work with you to perform an inclusive ceremony. 

Don't fancy carrying a bouquet or wearing a buttonhole? Well, get yourself a flower collar like Marley. Wow!

Marley and Clara are a part of the LGBTQI+ community. Clara is she/her, and Marley is he/him (a transgender male). We had an amazing wedding photographer Valentina Val Photo who captured the chemistry of Marly and Clara but who also created a beautiful love story throughout this floral inspiration.

Barnett Hill Hotel isn't the only place LGBTQI+ couple Clara and Marley have taken centre stage at a wedding shoot. They also featured in a black-tie inspiration shoot at Hodsock Priory. So whether you're into florals or luxury decor or details, I'm sure you'll agree their love is palpable.
