The neutral colour palette and minimal wedding inspiration complement the grand structure of Bylaugh Hall beautifully. From the high ceilings decorated in drapes to the tablescape littered with candles, every element screams grandeur. Perfectly organised and executed by Rebecca Marie Weddings to forge classic wedding inspiration that is both timeless and stylish. Don't even get us started on the wedding dresses... each one is a masterpiece with long sleeves, boho and princess gowns to suit all.

Bylaugh Hall minimalist wedding inspiration with hanging drapes and taper candles.

We wanted to create drama. An exciting, emotional and unexpected wedding experience in the countryside.

Inspired by the buildings at Bylaugh Hall themselves we wanted to create a high-end yet effortless style that suited both the renovated areas and ruins of this stunning venue. Fabric that appeared to float softened and filled the space, paired with simple florals to create a relaxed yet stylish setting. Stationery was muted to suit the palette and hand-made ceramics were the perfect addition.


Rebecca Marie is a creative, South West based wedding planner, event stylist and coordinator. A huge fan of all types of celebrations, from a minimalist wedding in a country manor house like the inspiration today to a festival-themed tipi wedding. Her aim is to create an incredibly stylish, stress-free and unforgettable celebration that is unique to them.

Fashion & Beauty

Simple, modern hairstyles and effortless makeup looks were created to further lament to couples that they can keep it simple and still look incredible. Modern gowns from The Mews Bridal boutique held their own in the space with the additional Galia Lahav show-stoppers; a perfect combination to complement our fusion of styles and approaches.

Sometimes less really is more.

Bylaugh Hall, built-in 1852, was designed by the same architect, Charles Barry Jr., who created the Houses of Parliament and Downton Abbey's Highclere Castle. Situated in Norfolk, it is surrounded by extensive gardens perfect for couples portraits. It is a gorgeous and grand country house that has been lovingly restored from ruins to the elegant and stylish residence it is today.

Some venues are built to be admired, and Bylaugh Hall is most definitely one of those venues. The neutral colour palette and clean lines of the minimalist wedding decor complement the Grade II listed building beautifully giving it both a timeless and modern edge. We've got lots more minimal wedding inspiration in our archives, just filter by style, because, less sometimes really is more!
