Fine art wedding inspiration at Prestwold Hall in Leicestershire with peach tones, romantic fashion and luxury details.

Inspiration & Styling

Workshop Artisan organised a magical, dreamy shoot for female wedding photographers at the beautiful Grade 1 Listed Prestwold Hall, a neoclassical style country house set in the heart of Leicestershire that offers exclusive hire weddings. Inspired by the beautiful interior spaces, a palette of peach, gold, pink and cream ran through the styling, flat lays, flowers, cakes and table settings to create a cohesive, fine art styled wedding shoot. In addition to the peach tones and luxurious styling, a beautiful balloon arch of gold and white was created to surround the grand piano and create an incredible focal point to that part of the dining room. Two dresses were used on the shoot, one peach ethereal and floaty by Watters for a very romantic look and one more elaborate lace detail dress by Essense of Australia with an added detachable overskirt by Pronovias, which added a more classical Vogueish look to the shoot. On a cold January day, we were also lucky enough to venture outside for glowy, golden late afternoon sunset shots.

Prestwold Hall Wedding

Remodelled in the 1840s, Prestwold Hall wedding venue in Leicestershire is a Grade I listed stately home owned by the Packe family for over 350 years. They take pride in tailoring each and every wedding to suit each and every couple who choose to get married there. There are even wedding weekend packages so you can extend the celebrations with your family, because let's face it, once you arrive, you won't want to leave.


I wanted to create a stripped-back classic makeup look using neutral palettes and a glowy natural base to suit the fine art styling of this shoot. I created a textured modern updo to complement the dress that Phoebe wore and a classic sleek pony with an editorial feel finished with a simple headband on Meghan which worked perfectly with the fitted style of the dress. I adore how natural makeup and simple hairstyles can really make for a beautiful classic bridal look.


Dessert Table

For this beautiful shoot, I worked from the brief to create a trio of elegant cakes with a hint of wildness through the climbing sugar roses. The complementary petite cakes and handcrafted morello cherry marzipan treats are a lovely addition to your wedding cake.
