I’m a little sad we’ll be missing wisteria weddings this year… this glorious bloom flowers in May and June, and transforms some of our favourite traditional wedding venues into nature’s paradise. But it doesn’t mean we won’t be sharing those glorious blossoms here on English Wedding! This editorial was submitted by my lovely friend Sarah on behalf of Eshott Hall. I’ll hand over to her to tell you more!

With love,

Each season is truly magical here at Eshott Hall, especially in the summertime, the House comes into its own, with its botanical signature… cascades of lilac wisteria, tumbling down its honey stone walls, make it perhaps one of the most photogenic country house venues in the North.

The heady fragrance of English garden roses contributes to the sensual delight of this garden. Beyond the immaculate, striped lawns and walled kitchen garden is a Victorian fernery, with its wrought iron gazebo, with ancient woodlands wrapped around it, carpeted by lush magenta rhododendrons.

Continuing with the beautiful escapism of weddings this week… we head to Hooton Pagnell for a sublimely sustainable styled shoot! The early sunshine is a delight; the look is natural, organic and elegant, and the special touches (cake! calligraphy! candles!) are FABULOUS!

Mark Crayden captured the shoot. We all loved his raw and effortless talent to be able to capture emotion, as well as the transitioning season. We were inspired by seasonal flowers, consisting of pretty peachy hues, a Pantone blue pop and with subtle earthy touches. Cut and bulb form was key to Sam of Fantail Designer Florist, whilst the use of moss and eco-friendly techniques were also adopted throughout. No floral foam was used for our inspirational shoot.

The transition between Winter and Spring is something that the team were keen to focus on, as this is often a season that is overlooked. Luckily, the sun shone and we were able to use the beautiful grounds of our venue, Hooton Pagnell Hall (and abundance of glorious sunshine!) to capture the seasonal transitions.
