VIBE

A beautiful intimate wedding breakfast under a European style pergola, surrounded by a classic English Country Garden. We wanted a romantic feel, featuring pops of pastels with blush pinks and soft terracotta, interspersed with whites/ivories and touches of soft metallics. As well as luxurious textures, an abundance of florals and simmering candlelight, we wanted it to be laidback.

ROMANTIC BRIDALWEAR

Bespoke couture bridalwear encapsulating romanticism, elegance and unique textures. We used a one shoulder dress from Blackburn Bridal by Anna Campbell, featuring the most exquisite embroidered tulle. Additionally, the second dress was by Romancera Madrid with incredible beading detail on the top and puff sleeves.

This intimate English garden party wedding is perfect for those wanting a small, romantic ceremony.

Barnsley House intertwines a contemporary feel inside a 17th century English Country Manor with idyllic gardens full of character and beauty.

There's something about this shoot that is pure magic. Was anyone else expecting to catch a glimpse of a few fairies? The draping pergola fabric and flowing tulle skirt really encapsulate the fairy tale vibe for me. If you're looking for more English garden party wedding inspiration, this intimate garden ceremony was put together for under 5k! And we couldn't NOT mention this incredible woodland wedding, with lots of tulle, of course.
