The Kedleston Country House is the embodiment of the “quintessentially British” wedding venue, with high ceilings, Georgian aesthetics and views of the Derbyshire countryside; it lent itself perfectly as the backdrop for this shoot, which was captured beautifully by Ellie of EKR Pictures.

Perfect Styling by Perfect Day Stylists

The styling concept was headed up by Jenny of Perfect Day, who teamed up with Silver Sixpence Florist to use blush pinks and copper as the colour foundations, geometric shapes to accentuate details and adding lashings of greenery and ivory tones to the floral displays to create a romantic setting.

Soft, sheer fabrics and candles on the tables were combined with the sunshine streaming in from the high set windows to set the scene for a ceremony in the Dining Room, whilst the Orangery was set up for a traditional wedding breakfast.

Decorated farmhouse tables were laid out across the room, with the tablescape featuring a mixture of floral displays, modern geometric elements and candles, along with stationery from Tilly Fudge.

Bohemian Romance Styling

A table of sweet treats from The Lavender Whisk was set up by the windows with signage from Wild Calligraphy. Amongst the edible treats were three cakes, all in traditional ivory icing or buttercream and imitating the natural, stripped-back look with copper and blush pink accents.

Our bridal model for the day had a classic English Rose look, but we wanted to really strip that back and make it a little less polished. We wanted to portray her as free-spirited; a fun-loving bride who has been given free reign over the venue and its countryside grounds. Wearing bespoke gowns from Kula Tsurdiu, the tulle and lace framed her figure beautifully, whilst Sophie Downing created two natural makeup looks and Vicki Marriott crafted both hairstyles, showcasing undone soft curls, and a face-framing up-do. Silver Sixpence provided flower crowns for the bridal model and flower girl, Madison.
