A sublime English rose garden wedding inspiration shoot, with Eva Tarnok Photography

The ONLY wedding theme which has been constantly popular since this blog was born in 2009 (we’re six!! who knew?!) is English Country Garden. I love that we’re so smitten with flowers, with nature, with the beauty of our gardens and countryside… and today’s styled inspiration shoot pays tribute to this, the loveliest wedding theme of all.

The inspiration of this editorial shoot was the location itself, the recently renovated south London wedding venue, Morden Hall and the surrounding beautiful Morden Hall Park. The park is run by National Trust and it contains a variety of natural landscapes, including parkland, the River Wandle, meadow and marshland. One of the most popular areaS of the park is the rose garden, which has over 2000 roses and other flowers and it is a stunning example of the traditional English rose garden. We wanted the images to reflect the elegance of this historic venue but also to showcase the natural beauty surrounding it.

London wedding stylist, the amazing Andri Benson from Always Andri Wedding Design worked her magic in coordinating and showcasing all the pieces. To give a sense of movement and fluidity we used luxurious table linens from Table to Dine For and beautifully hand dyed silk ribbons and runners by Pompom Blossom in softest shades of pink and pastel blue.

The cake was supplied by Maisie Fantaisie and it charmingly echoed the golden details of the wedding dress. The classically elegant invitation suite was from Ever After Press.

As our inspiration was being taken from the beautiful gardens the floral design became one of the most important elements and creative London florist Liz Inigo Jones from Blue Sky Flowers created truly stunning pieces from her wild and abundant bouquet and table arrangement with fragrant stocks, blousy peonies and trailing clematis to the ceremonial arch filled with blush coloured roses that echoed and enhanced the rose garden theme. Our brilliant hair and make-up artist on set was Sophie Cooke from The Bridal Stylists. She created an understated look on Sophie, to work in with the theme.

The wedding dresses were supplied by Wimbledon based wedding dress boutique Luella’s Bridal. We picked two very different dresses for the shoot to create different looks. One of the dresses was the very detailed and romantic Neta by Inbal Raviv. It is made from hand embellished cotton lace in rose gold with a silk chiffon skirt with lace inserts. The dress looked a bit different, it had a romantic vintage feel to it but still looked elegant, which worked well with the style of the shoot. The other dress we picked was Zara by Luella’s Bridal. It is made from French silk chiffon and is made in London. This dress is very simple with gold foiling at the bottom, which is done by hand. As we wanted to use flower crowns for some of the set ups, we needed a more simple dress to work with it. The elegant hair accessories with beautiful flora and fauna motifs were designed by Victoria Millesime. The stunningly detailed shoes were from the exclusive shoe designer, Emmy London.
