We’re brining you serious wedding escapism this morning – away from the surreal and scary world out there. But before all that, I know many of you are so worried about your wedding plans for the summer. My advice for all of you is to focus on the truly important: not your wedding, not your marriage even, but your love. No matter what, your love will get you through this. And for advice, reassurance, and all the practicalities of wedding planning with coronavirus a very real threat on the horizon, read Annabel’s superb advice features on Love My Dress. She’s got your back, and with a great team of wedding experts on board, all the advice you could ask for is there.
Now back to that escapism – because we need a safe space online to indulge in a little wedding pretty right now! It’s springtime and we have the most wonderfully fresh wedding ideas with the prettiest florals and sublime stationery in delicate pastel shades. With inspiration drawn from the beautiful Georgian architecture at Rownhams House and the writings of Jane Austen of that period, today’s stunning bridal shoot is inspired by the romanticism, splendour and elegance of that era with a quintessentially English yet modern feel.
The Grade II listed country house on the outskirts of Southampton provides the perfect setting for a breathtaking Hampshire spring wedding. This styled shoot mixes modern beauty and sophistication with the grand décor, ornaments and sweeping gardens whilst keeping an understated elegant touch.
The images purposefully range from bright and fresh colours to reflect a crisp spring day to dark and atmospheric tones to highlight the intricate details within a Georgian property, all beautifully captured by Nisha Haq Photography.
The wedding dresses from the gorgeous Modeca ‘Le Papillon’ collection celebrate a light and fresh design approach beautifully modelled by Danielle Weeks. This stylish collection is artistic and glamorous and flaunts impeccable detailing and precision fit, perfect for today’s modern elegant bride. The stunning dresses featured are Ella, Bobbi & Bolivia as well as Meghan Satin bridal shoes, which are available at Occasions of West Street, Fareham bridal boutique. Though modern styling, the classical romantic feel of the gowns is reminiscent of the intricate details and practices of Georgian high fashion, it’s a timeless look for any bride.
Using shades of pastel orange, lilac, pink and green in the flowers, cake and stationery are a wonderful way to add vibrancy to any wedding decor and styling for a fresh spring/summer wedding. The flowers beautifully crafted by Luvshifting Flowers, the cake exquisitely produced with intricate sugar work by Sparkle Bakes and the stylish stationery fashionably designed by Kathryn Deeley.
Fancy an understated elegant modern wedding with touches of period architecture for your day? Choose a venue with charming characterful features and style it with contemporary designs, décor and fresh colour palette for that romantic feel.
Hampshire is a thriving county full of picturesque locations and fantastic suppliers in the city, coast & countryside. All the vendors featured in this shoot are Hampshire based working together to create the most splendid wedding inspiration for your day.
