A lot of you lovely couples are choosing very classic, elegant styling touches this year, so when this fabulous shoot landed on my desk I knew instantly you’d love it! This is timeless and beautiful, luxurious but not opulent – and achievable for those of you looking for modern elegance with beautiful details. The venue is Hothorpe Hall, and the styling is by Natalie at Beautiful Arches. All images are by lovely Kathryn Edwards Photography.

“The idea behind the shoot was to show a classic and elegant wedding; an achievable fairy-tale for those brides who dream of looking like a princess on their big day. I purposely didn’t want it to be too trend-led, so it’s quite timeless and classic with a simple colour scheme of white and gold, with just a touch of sparkle. It also features some beautiful details to show how you can bring a luxurious feel to your big day with little touches like monogrammed linen, a ceremony arch, and a nicely framed cake table.”

“I bought most of the stuff myself… mainly from Hobbycraft, Etsy or Not on the High Street. I was introduced to Elinor Softley who has her own business in decorating weddings and she was an absolute life saver! She completely understood the theme and ideas I had for the day and couldn’t do enough for us. I don’t know what we would have done without her as she dressed the venue by herself on the Friday and helped to take it down on the Sunday! She is amazing. Her company is fairly new, but she is so talented! It’s called Soft Touch Events and you can hire lots of cool things from Elinor…I think I hired pretty much her whole warehouse!
