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.


It’s wonderful to see a little wedding cake love. The modern day cake is a work of art, a feast for the eyes even more than for your hungry guests’ tummies. I adore seeing top cake designers launch new collections: wedding cake stars PeboryonRosalind Miller, Cakes by Beth, Amy Swann and Nevie-Pie Cakes are turning wedding cakes into works of art… and for cake fans this has to be the most wonderful thing ever!

‘Fowey’ wedding cake. “After an afternoon celebrating togetherness, art galleries and good coffee, a walk out to watch the white sails chase the breeze on the sparkling sea was invigorating. There’s freedom and beauty in power under control.”

I had an email from lovely Christine at Peboryon a little while ago – a cake design studio based in Cornwall. They recently launched a new range of beautifully different luxury wedding cakes – and the Duchy Collection launch was a fabulous event in itself!
