Luxury Spring Wedding Inspiration at the iconic Stowe House

Published by Claire Gould on

To start your week on what’s a drizzly day in the Lake District… we bring you a wonderful, elegant photoshoot from beautiful Buckinghamshire. Huge thanks to lovely Chloe Bolam and the amazing team who created this stunning wedding setup in such an iconic venue! And of course, it is wonderful to see an absolutely breathtaking bride with curves, glowing and absolutely gorgeous with her man – I’m proud to be sharing this with you today. I hope you love it too!

One of the most iconic venues in Buckinghamshire, Stowe House is the perfect place to draw wedding inspiration. A stunning, 18th Century Mansion surrounded by 880 acres of National Trust gardens, the views really are incredible in every direction. The interior is so stunning you don’t even need your own decor; with painted walls, gold ceilings and accents, and sparkling chandeliers. There are so many stunning backgrounds and unique photo opportunities.

Captured and co-planned by Chloe Bolam, a UK wedding photographer, this shoot was primarily inspired by the venue and the season. With beautiful pinks and gorgeous florals from The Flower Boutique MK, we wanted to inspire with a luxury Spring theme.

With a ceremony space set up in the iconic Marble Hall, it’s simply breathtaking with its unique oval shape, marble columns and carved ceilings.

A reception and dining area was created in the Music Room, with its beautiful wall paintings and stunning views of the grounds. We used white linen and chair drapes to maintain brightness in the room and not distract from the incredible interior.

With florals on every table, gold-rimmed plates and blush pink napkins from The Knotted Napkin Co, we created a delicate and fresh Spring theme. Also on display was the incredible cake created by Grace & Cake, with hand-crafted sugar flowers and ruffles.

Delicate, hand-made stationery by Paige & Co was placed on every table, with a gorgeous sign welcoming the guests. The invitation suite was so dreamy, with stunning pinks, gold accents and hand-torn edges.

Our Bride had stunning hair and makeup by Holly Edmonds Hair & Laura Carroll Makeup Artistry, topped off with accessories from Cassie M Bridal Accessories. She wore a gorgeous lace gown with detachable puff sleeves – showing how you can have two different ‘looks’ without having to buy a second dress. To complete this classy look, she wore gorgeous ‘Harlow’ Bella Belle shoes.

The groom wore a classic black tie suit from House of Cavani, tying in to the luxury feel at this stunning venue.

What an incredible place for a wedding!
