Beautiful bohemian & English country styled shoot at West Dean Gardens in Sussex, with Illy Elizabeth Weddings

I just adore the pretty, feminine florals in today’s inspiration shoot from West Dean Gardens. The frilled petals add something a little boho chic to the arrangements and go beautifully with the dusky pink table styling in this incredible setting. Huge thanks to Illy Elizabeth Weddings for today’s feature! Images are by lovely Joanna Cleeve Photography and you’ll find a full suppliers list below.

There are so many venues in Sussex that are secret treasures. We had to do an inspired shoot featuring West Dean Gardens to show many wedding couples the potential of this venue.

We were inspired by the venue details to combine both a Bohemian and English styled theme. Beautiful pastels and copper golds were chosen as the colour scheme, featuring stunning flower arrangements by Lily Lupin that complimented gold terrarium décor details.

Pastel pink vintage crockery was complimented by the copper cutlery that brought all of these colours together with a blush pink linen to cover a rustic wooden table.

West Dean Gardens gives off a truly enchanted feel with its unique Edwardian Pergola at 100m long, a unique photo opportunity for any bride or groom.

  • It just doesn't get any cuter. 🥰 @emilyblack.photography at @devonporthouse with the most adorable flower girls EVER!! Top tip from gorgeous bride Debbie - buy your aisle runner rather than renting. That way you're allowed to use it inside or out, you can drop petals on it, and have fun practising on it with all your little flower girls the day before!! #aislerunner #londonweddingphotographer #londonbride #englishweddingblog #loveintentionally #makeadventure#visualcoop#loveauthentic #intimatewedding#elopementphotographer#helloelopement #elopmentweddings #junebugs #wanderingweddings #theknot #loveislove #photobugcommunity #loveandwildhearts #londonwedding #londonweddingvenue
