English Rose Romance – beautiful styling ideas from Nether Winchendon House
We’re leaping into Wednesday with an excited squeal and a breathtaking dose of beautiful lavender. Today’s editorial will steal your heart if you’re looking for a traditional English countryside wedding with a modern aesthetic. The look is stylish and romantic, timeless and natural, with unique details. The images by Suzy Elizabeth Photography are wonderfully light and airy, styling by Wedding Elements is perfectly, beautifully on point. Our venue for the day is Nether Winchendon House, set in seven acres of traditional gardens and hundreds of acres of parkland on the Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire border.
Taking inspiration from a classic Oxfordshire countryside manor, this shoot captures the romance and beauty of an English rose marrying her true love. Combining traditional elements with modern features and luxury handmade details, the shoot brings together the principal elements of a modern couple in a traditional setting. With a colour palette of lavender and sage, and hints of silver and copper, reflecting the rich colours of the stunning Oxfordshire gardens.
Traditional styling using silver candelabras, chiffon lavender chair décor accompanying modern elements such as coloured glassware and draped napkins. Combining the timeless and on trend features of modern day wedding styling.
Soft, delicate, lacey features on the wedding gowns reflect the romance of the day, and showcase our English Rose perfectly. Individual, beautifully crafted dresses are perfect for the modern, style conscious bride. Lavender dip dyed cathedral veil and ivory cape. Hand painted shoes with a lavender and sage floral design. Neutral tones and minimal make up enhance our English Rose’s natural beauty. The soft curls reflect the romantic theme and wrap around the hand crafted hair pieces.
The Cotswold Tailor provides Groomswear for the quintessential English Gentleman. With a tailored navy blue suit and matching lavender and sage floral tie, our Groom compliments his bride and the theme of the wedding.
Wild flowers bursting with greenery and different shades of purple, our florist Bramble Cottage Flowers complimented the romance of the shoot perfectly. The handcrafted moon gate framed our couple and the table flowers acted as a foliage runner. Hand died silk ribbons in lavender tie together the full and wild bouquet.
Mellie Moo‘s lavender stationery with vellum RSVP cards and menus, all written in white ink with floral detailing, reflect the soft, romantic styling.
Lavender and sage floral detailing on the three tier iced cake by Iced Delights perfectly accompany the theme and colour scheme of the shoot.
A twist on the traditional light up letters, these prop hires add to the rustic, country vibes of the Carriage Barn. A luxury photobooth for the style conscious couple brings the fun elements for guests, while maintaining the classic style. Arriving in style is a must for any bride. The chauffeur driven, classic VW Camper Van finishes off the theme of traditional and modern elements coming together.
Our English Rose bride is professional model Cathy Wilson. Her stunning porcelain complexion and natural red hair made her the perfect English Rose bride. With Cathy is her real life boyfriend William; their chemistry is evident in every photo, echoing true romance.
