Buxted park wedding inspiration in a glasshouse with contemporary decor 

Silk, organza and pearls within the bridal ensemble offered a delicate, understated, elegance. This was complemented by a sleek modern updo, adorned with pearls. We wanted the bridal look to be effortlessly timeless, with soft natural beauty. We chose our first gown with its contemporary square neckline and puff sleeves paired with a handmade pearl veil. This offered a more classical floating silhouette. Our groom looked sophisticated in a tailor-made tuxedo. The evening look showcased an off-the-shoulder gown with pearl button detailing and a side slit. The handmade pearl earrings and matching pearlescent clutch and shoes completed this chic evening look.

Contemporary Victoriana at Buxted Park

Nestled within the scenic countryside of East Sussex, Buxted Park stands as a quintessential English wedding venue. It effortlessly exudes elegance, history, and charm. This stunning Georgian mansion, surrounded by acres of manicured gardens and woodlands, offers a captivating backdrop for couples seeking a romantic and memorable day. The venue's classiness is immediately evident upon arrival, with its impressive façade and towering columns setting the stage for a truly regal experience. Stepping inside, the interior seamlessly blends period features with contemporary comforts, creating a harmonious atmosphere that caters to both traditional and modern preferences. That is what makes Buxted the perfect venue for this shoot. The opulent ballroom, adorned with crystal chandeliers and intricate detailing, was a perfect spot for the stunning florals and tableware. Those suspended foliage decorations? Yes, please. We'll take five hundred, please. All of the contemporary decor found at this editorial shoot blended seamlessly with the grandeur of the destination. This venue is a timeless haven where dreams come true and cherished memories are woven. Its seamless blend of historic grandeur, natural beauty, and attentive service creates an enchanting canvas upon which couples can paint their perfect wedding day.

The hanging floral displays and seasonal wedding flower arrangements blend this gorgeous shoot together

Romantic trailing hellebores, clematis, and tulips were in abundance. Using seasonal flowers was of the utmost importance, focusing on using florals that are typically seen within Victorian flower arrangements but presented in a more relaxed and contemporary trailing style. The floral centrepiece was an ornate hanging display of flowers and vines organically cascading to the floor, paired with gold flower urns to create a stunning aisle arch for the ceremony.

There is so much in this shoot that just makes sense. The flowers, the venue, the stationery, the outfits... Every little detail was thoroughly thought through - and that's abundantly clear. If you want the same effect at your wedding, having a wedding organiser or planner might be the way to go. With all those seasonal flowers, we just know the venue was smelling amazing. If you want to smell equally glorious on your big day, choosing the right wedding scent for you is paramount.
