English Meadow Wedding Ideas at Manor Hill House
This relaxed and elegant shoot was inspired by the natural beauty and gently rolling countryside surrounding intimate wedding venue, BLOVED Edit Member, Manor Hill House in Worcestershire.
With statement florals continuing to be a huge focus in wedding styling for 2020 and beyond, stylist Louise of The Brand Studio and florist Amy of Bo Boutique wanted to show a softer, more romantic take on floral installations. They took the lead from the wild informality of country gardens and English meadows, creating a relaxed floral archway for the ceremony pavilion using branches of birch and trailing amaranth, bundles of rosehip and pink snowberries, with dahlia and roses adding colour and wispy grasses providing texture. These delicate meadow-like florals were also used on the tablescape, bringing the outdoors into the light-filled marquee where rustic tables and benches add to the informal atmosphere.
On the tabletop, a mix of crisp and modern white crockery and vintage cutlery and crystal glassware were used to create a timeless feel, hand-dyed blush cotton napkins and ribbons complete each setting along with a softly illustrated floral place card designed by White Olive Design Studio to complement the floral design. as well as a bespoke, gold foiled and vellum stationery suite incorporating floral details and illustration of the venue, adding a personal touch.
Completing the English meadow look, a simple and elegant buttercream cake by Farmhouse Cakes is topped with barely-there florals and set beside a delicious selection of grazing-style dishes created in house by the chef at Manor Hill House.
In keeping with the relaxed vibe, the bridal couple were classically styled. The bride wears Madeleine by StelFox Bride at Hagley Bridal Studio, barely there makeup and an elegant swept-up hairstyle created by our hair & makeup artist Ruth of Makeup by Ruth, while the groom looks dapper in his tux by Harveys Formal Hire and snowberry buttonhole.
