Luxury can come in small packages, you know…. and when wedding magazines quote the ‘average’ price of a wedding I always take those stats with a pinch of salt (or to be honest, a chuckle and a roll of the eyes) – because savvy brides and grooms know wedding style isn’t about having everything. It’s about carefully choosing just a few key statement pieces.

Today’s shoot looks super luxurious, but shows how a select few suppliers can turn your day into a memorable occasion. Forget stationery, forget wedding cars, forget favours and handcrafted place settings. Today’s shoot is all about the location: Cliveden House inspired every detail. It’s all about the dress, the bouquet and having a venue which doesn’t need a lot of decoration… which will cut your wedding budget massively.

Wedding planner Meghan from Extraordinary Days coordinated today’s shoot with a few key details from quality suppliers. I hope you love it: and I hope it inspires you to cut down on details and focus on elegance and simplicity in a setting which provides all the romance and luxury you could ever need.

I was honoured to be asked to contribute to a styled wedding shoot at Cliveden House, organised by the very lovely Petra Opperman. Petra is a wedding designer and planner based in Windsor, and is the talented stylist behind this gorgeous ideas shoot. The concept alone is incredibly romantic – and will resonate with music lovers everywhere. I adore the rich, luscious colours and subtle influence of the classical music theme. The colours are rich and warm, perfectly suited to any sophisticated wedding venue.
