Kirtlington Park summer wedding inspiration with warm orange flowers and wedding decor

As with many of the editorials I’ve produced, this one was inspired by colour. Warm neutrals and oranges have become undeniably trendy over the last year, so naturally, I wanted to incorporate them into this Kirtlington Park inspiration.

Kirtlington Park

Kirtlington Park is located close to Oxford and Blenheim Palace. It is a breathtaking Palladian house set in stunning gardens and Capability Brown designed parkland.


The place settings included natural rattan placemats with brown linens in warm browns with matching rattan napkin rings, as well as stationery featuring playful semi-circle place cards. Table decor also included chunky pillar candles and flowers in an intriguing array of orange, rust and mocha to lift the design. The same design guidelines were applied to the cake. But, our most exciting feature of the day was an outdoor bar flanked by a saxophone/percussion duo dressed in fashion to complement the colour palette.


With a day full of modern design and bold styling, the fashion and beauty included couldn’t be anything less than exactly that. Plunging necklines, low backs, and a variety of textures from delicate petals to glamorous sequins were worn by our two model brides. The makeup celebrated the models’ natural beauty, and the hair styling was stylish and bold. The brides also wore matching shoe and clutch bag sets, alongside glittering hair accessories. With the grooms sporting three-piece suits in check prints and quirky coloured ties.

Orange is often described as the colour of creativity and joy, which is everything this inspiration encapsulates.

It was important for the design to remain stylish and modern despite the typically bohemian colour palette. The lead photographer, Poppy Carter Portraits, and I aim to produce work that appeals to like-minded stylish couples.

Kirtlington Park is so impressive we're wondering why it isn't one of the many locations where Bridegerton was filmed? It's certainly worthy of a visit from The Duke or Viscount. And Even though it's a historical venue, it certainly lends itself well to this modern theme.
