Belvoir Castle near Grantham is a beautiful Regency Castle in the heart of England with breathtaking landscaped grounds. With striking sculptures, paintings and objets d’art, the Castle is a perfect backdrop for unique, stylish weddings and is also a popular film location, used in the ‘Young Victoria’ and most recently ‘Victoria and Abdul’. It really is an incredible venue to host your wedding.

Our blog feature comes from a group of English wedding suppliers who love Belvoir Castle and its rich history. Inspired by their surroundings, they created a wedding look to appeal to modern, stylish couples looking for sophistication and elegance but with a fresh twist. The team chose a romantic soft colour palette with faded hues of apricots, blush, lilacs and soft grey tones. The colours were inspired by the warm stone of Belvoir, and by the subtle colours in the Castle’s elegant interiors.

Gorgeous bride Polly married her handsome groom Ben at the end of last summer. It was a perfect, sunny day –  Polly actually had a beautiful, delicate parasol so she could keep the sun off it was so hot! The ceremony took place at the stunning Bishop’s Court near Exeter – a grade 1 listed country house with amazing gothic décor and beautiful grounds with roaming wild peacocks! The reception was held at Polly’s childhood home where a marquee had been decorated in origami cranes, all of which had been made by the bride and her friends! The present / card table also had a frame which showed a map of where they got engaged which was such a nice touch.

We didn’t have a theme as such. It was a country wedding and we were keen that it should be relaxed and fun. My husband tells me that he’s glad that he got involved in the wedding planning and that we made most decisions together. It meant that he knew what was happening when rather than feeling like a stranger at your own wedding.

This will brighten up your Wednesday – I promise! I’m totally in love with today’s wedding from The Copse, and Daisy and Will are just gorgeous – in fact everything about their wedding is just perfect from Daisy’s dress (wow!!) to the florals and greenery. Images are by English Wedding Directory member and super talented Essex wedding photographer Craig Williams – whose website and instagram are both wonderfully addictive!

Daisy and Will’s venue is fabulous. The Copse allows couples to choose their own caterer and bring wine with no corkage – which we think is pretty special! I know it’s a favourite of lovely friend, English Wedding feature writer and wedding planner, Jenna Hewitt. “Jenna ran everything for us and that meant we had much more time to relax and enjoy the day. Having Craig as our photographer and Jenna as our on the day coordinator made all the difference in the world.”

Their enchanting images are by Bristol wedding photographer Martin Dabek, who told me “the spirit of the wedding was great. I always like DIY weddings and this one was no exception. Great party and lovely couple. The venue was in a lovely and very secluded woodland location.”

Nicola’s dress is from Ghost – she looks incredible and I really love her relaxed and effortlessly elegant style. The flowers are from a Bristol wholesale flower market, with some grown by Peter’s mother, and they made the beautiful arrangements together. The venue was decorated with lots of greenery from the couple’s garden, bunting borrowed from and made by friends… and an amazing disco ball which looks fantastic in the woodland setting!
