Prestwold Hall Wedding Inspiration 

Prestwold Hall is a gorgeous Grade I listed wedding venue in Leicestershire surrounded by 2,500 acres of parkland. The exclusive use wedding venue is close to Loughborough and has grand architecture and immaculate grounds with space for up to 200 guests in the evening. 


The styling for this shoot was inspired by the colours and beautiful features within the wedding venue. The suppliers used Prestwold Hall’s gorgeous interior to create an elegant and timeless feel. The decor consisted of lots of patterned fabrics, elegant tableware, textured stationery, vintage pieces and dramatic florals. Modern flower columns were placed at the entrance of the venue, using a mix of foliage and seasonal flowers that continued through the shoot with dramatic urns, table florals and a fireplace installation. Incorporating this year’s trend of bows, a fun pink champagne tower featuring velvet bows was a key decor piece.
