Let’s relax into a wedding style feature which is opulent, lush and sophisticated, shall we? Today’s blog is all about elegance, with timeless looks inspired by Price & Prejudice beautifully brought to life at Cornwall’s luxurious Burncoose House. Janna from Wild and Free Photography teamed up with stationer Caroline from Love Tree Designs and stylist Natalie Blake to bring a timeless elegance to this enchantingly beautiful wedding shoot.

Inspiration came from Jane Austen’s romantic novel, Pride and Prejudice, as well as using old world decor to give a truly authentic feel. The colour scheme was inspired by a combination of forest greenery which surrounds Burncoose House paired with gold which represents prosperity and grandeur. Burncoose House in Cornwall has us stepping back in time to the Georgian era with its classic architecture, grand staircase and ornate features throughout, which fitted perfectly with the vision.

Situated under the grand staircase was the most opulent cake by Christine Jensen from Peboryon, that shows off her detailed sugar work and styled by Natalie Blake with draped material and candle light.

Today’s wedding is just pure inspiration: I fell head over heels for the flowers and styling of the day, and I adore Sarah and John’s wedding look. Elmore Court is wonderful, and the Gillyflower is the loveliest space for a relaxed and stylish wedding reception.

“The flowers were rich with added feathers and ribbons – for all bouquets. Over all very elegant styling in the stately home, sympathetic to its surroundings…with the added twist of balloons to break up the decor. The Gillyflower was more eclectic with animal vases, brass candlesticks, wooded vases and copper hurricane lights.

We hired lights and other parts of decor, the stately home really spoke for itself and needed very little styling. The Gillyflower we tried to keep things within the same design fold and not introduce too many differing elements. Etsy was a HUGE help, this was our second wedding within a month so we were really busy with details which totally paid off.

Kate and David’s wedding is beautiful, perfect… the dream summer wedding at a venue I know is a pretty special place (my cousin was married here!) – and they have the loveliest images to remember it by, from John Mottershaw Photography and with my friend Carol Elizabeth Photography as his second shooter on the day. “We ended up having 2-4-1 on the wedding day as John brought in Carol as an extra pair of hands, so we were very lucky! They both fitted in so well with the guests and you barely noticed they were there snapping away.”


“We were both so pleased when we came across Charlotte’s boutiqueShe was completely different to other boutiques. We sat down while we filled in a questionnaire like what was my budget and what sort of designers I liked etc. and then I just started trying on dresses that she would pick out for me. She would then use the feedback I had on certain dresses to then pick out the next dress. Until finally I found the one! I knew it was perfect from the moment I tried it on.”
