Planning

If I got to be lady of the manor for a day this is exactly how I'd like it to look. Surrounded by elegance and flowers and me looking utterly chic and refined. The vision by Kate Cullen of Fine Art Wedding Boutique is one of beauty and has been executed perfectly with the help of Bramble & Wild's immense floral creations, and whole wealth of other talented industry suppliers and experts. Cornwell Manor made the perfect location for all this pretty and Bowtie and Belle's light and airy, fine art photography style really captured the essence of this elegant inspiration beautifully. Get ready to be blown away...

Inspiration

A Greek goddess in the English countryside. A flower-filled vision photographed on film of chic classical lines fused with wild foliage and florals. The coming together of nature’s beauty and artisan-crafted pieces fit for a deity. span class="bride">Kate Cullen, Creative Director, Stylist and Owner of the Fine Art Wedding Boutique: The inspiration for the shoot came from the seasonal Spring florals of Icelandic poppies and an abundance of fresh foliage, expertly woven into a fabulous installation by Grace at Bramble & Wild, setting the scene for a contrasting minimal and contemporary look favoured by many brides for 2018. Sleek, clean-lined couture dresses paired with statement headpieces and jewellery alongside considered, elegant tableware and stationery. The light-filled classical interior architecture at Cornwell Manor perfectly lent itself to this look, particularly contrasting beautifully with the abundant greenery of the gardens outside, and we emulated this duality in the luxurious stationery, accessories and overall detailing of this wedding design.’ “Through the dancing poppies stole A breeze most softly lulling to my soul.” ―John Keats
