Intimate doesn't mean you have to compromise on style as Fantail Designer Florist and her team of creatives have displayed at this Hooton Pagnell Hall inspiration. From the grooms buttonhole right through to the banqueting table littered with fruits and flowers under a canopy of chandeliers no detail has been forgotten. And what's best of all, you can include or exclude as much or as little as you want, depending on your budget. We're definitely here for all the lights!


A seasonal backdrop with a luxury feels including large floral and lighting instalments yet keeping it cosy and romantic.

The table design was perfectly styled with flowers, stationery, bottles of Henderson’s Relish, fruit grown from Hooton’s own Orchard, charcoal crockery, black glassware and lanterns. We knew we wanted to go over the top with the table to dip into the imagination of brides and grooms. A set up like this is truly beautiful however if brides and grooms are on a budget, it can, of course, be scaled back. A simple classic cake created by Charlotte Wilcox was centred within a double metal hoop surrounded by fresh florals, fabric swirling to the ground to more lit lanterns. It certainly adds the wow factor.

Hooton Pagnell Hall

The luxury Hooton Pagnell Hall Summerhouse was the location for this diverse inspiration featuring fruits and vegetables from the venues own orchard and impressive floral arrangements by Fantail Designer Florist. The script table runner brings a medieval banqueting vibe to the table decor and the multiple chandelier decor all the luxury. Plus, how magical does the cake look surround by the hoop frame?! Very!

The Charis gown exudes confidence and grace; a celebration of the modern bride. For this shoot, we paired the gown with a bespoke sheer translucent sequins cape, which was specially made to complement the Autumnal concept of this beautiful shoot. Carl, Shalini’s real-life husband rocked his look wearing a tailored check suit with orange highlights and tie. Finished with an optional buttonhole hole or pocket flowers. Alison Jenner created a textured yet soft updo for the first hairstyle look to enable the gorgeous flower crown to sit as pride of place.
