Breathtaking doesn’t even begin to describe today’s styled wedding inspiration feature. This is one for every girl who’s ever dreamed of a stately home wedding – the styling touches are exquisite; the florals divine; the photography so perfectly beautiful… with words and images by the incredibly talented Tara Statton Photography at Great Fulford in Devon.

“The inspiration for our shoot was centered around the beautiful and historic Great Fulford Estate. It has so much charm with its grand rooms, wooden paneling, marble floors and imposing staircase. You can just imagine guests in all of their English finery attending parties within these huge rooms hundreds of years ago. The walls are adorned with gold framed oil paintings and decorated with blue grey tones. Yet amongst its grandeur, the manor house has a shabby element to it in a romantic and beautiful sort of way, with pealing wallpaper and a distressed edge to it. This combination is what really drew us to Great Fulford as a location for our shoot, it has a uniqueness that sets it aside from some of the more polished venues.
