Intimate wedding styling ideas from Came House, Dorset
I am SO pleased it’s the weekend! I’ve had my nose buried in handwritten invites for an American wedding this week, all while I teach myself how to do Instagram stories (I’m so late, I know!) – and today I’m road tripping down to Manchester with my man to play at escape rooms and hang out with three of my favourite people in the world. In the meantime… this gorgeous wedding editorial is insanely beautiful and full of lush florals in a refreshingly different colour palette. I think you’ll love it…
Images are by our old friend Greg from TP Photography in Dorset – they capture the details and atmosphere of the shoot so beautifully, don’t you think? Lovely Oonagh from The English Florist created a floral chandelier, table centrepieces, buttonholes and breathtaking bouquets with Icelandic poppies, ranunculus, ‘Panda’ anemones and white O’Hara roses. I’ll hand over to Oonagh to tell us a little about the inspiration and styling ideas – and the wonderful venue (which I hadn’t heard of before – and which totally has my heart!)…
This stunning Neo Classical house is privately owned and located just outside Dorchester in the county town of Dorset. Set on the southern side of the town famous for its strong connection with the romantic author Thomas Hardy, the manor has glorious views with a large terrace at the front, looking over the estate church and onto rolling fields beyond. The house, its location and the views, coupled with the elegant reception rooms and sun filled orangery provided the inspiration for this shoot.
Romance encapsulated by a soft colour palette, full skirted Chantelle Sophia wedding dresses, hand dyed silk throws and ribbons in subtle tones by Border Cottage Flowers. Carefully crafted stationery by Lily and Lottie incorporates summer flowers in romantic shades.
The hand painted wedding cake by Rose on the Cake is exquisite; The English Florist‘s textured asymmetrical floral arrangements incorporate the unusual Icelandic Poppies and scented garden roses. Detailed shots were important to tell the story of an intimate wedding; rings on a book only moments ago put down, the bouquet, silk shawl and handmade hair band discarded on a chair, the buttonhole pinned on the lapel of a velvet jacket.
