Nothing says elegance more than a 16th-century manor house. Rushton Hall is a beautiful venue with tons of natural light that matched the spring vibes perfectly. What could be better than one stunning bridal look? TWO stunning bridal looks! Especially when one of those is a Jesus Peiro wedding dress...showstopping! Not only was the bride styled to perfection, but Recommended supplier, Your Story Events, made sure the venue was too. It was full of pastel, neutral and blush-toned florals, from Recommended supplier, Grace Florals, and candles to match the luxe vibes of Rushton Hall. Not forgetting that all of this was captured by, Recommended supplier, Jessica Piazza Photography.

Rushton Hall modern and elegant wedding

We wanted to show how a modern vibe still works well within a traditional location like Rushton Hall.

Rushton Hall

For this shoot, we chose a stunning 16th-century manor house, Rushton Hall, in the Northamptonshire countryside. Rushton Hall's authentic architecture and gardens made the perfect setting for our pastel colour theme to pop. Whilst floor to ceiling windows permitted enough early spring sunshine to bounce off the grand chandelier and light up the room. We picked The Orangery for the reception as it provided a muted palette for the tableware, flower arrangements and cake to stand out with its texture. Completing the table setting, was the neutral wedding stationery by Recommended supplier, Sweet Ophelia Designs.



We really wanted a clean and elegant look using neutral tones, combined with pastel colours – predominantly pinks, peaches and greens within the flowers and décor. These worked really well with Rushton Hall’s luxurious feel and neutral palette, especially the complementary earthy tones for the table styling. We completed the look with pastel flowers and candles adding a simple but effective touch of glamour and colour. To match those vibes, we chose a glam glow look for the bride’s makeup and a sleek up-do hairstyle for both outfits. Recommended supplier, Hannah Finn was responsible for the incredible makeup.


A bridal headband is such an underrated accessory! It always elevates a look

Our first look included a luxurious, ballroom-style dress by designer, Jesus Peiro, with textured floral detail and a stunning central slit at the front, revealing a pair of pearl high heels. We completed this look with a matching beaded headband that, although ideal for day-to-night, we removed for our second evening look. This consisted of a chic, off-the-shoulder, full-length sleeved dress, creating a glamorous, party vibe.
