Meadowsweet at Pennard House


Images by Lucky Malone Photography.

We’re venturing to one of my favourite venues today… The utterly beautiful Pennard House. This styled shoot takes it’s inspiration from the wilds of Somerset’s stunning countryside and the sheer romance of this English setting.

It’s always a pleasure introducing our venues to the best suppliers and when B.LOVED blog Founder and stylist, Louise, along with floral designer Jay Archer and Lucky Malone Photography came together I knew there was only one location for them to create a bit of magic…

“The colour palette of muted golds, grey and the palest blush along with loose and abundant floral design and simple details echo the beauty and colours of the natural surroundings; from the stone building to fields of golden grass and wildflower meadows…” says Louise.

A Charming Bohemian Chateau Wedding Venue


Images by Katy Webb Photography.

A grand, 18th Century bohemian Chateau full of antiques and original charm is our star venue today in this relaxed yet inspiring styled shoot.

The Palladian influenced Chateau La Belotterie is set in the foothills of the Grand Casse, over-looking the Black Mountain. The venue, has its own private grounds of over 26 acres of lawns, streams, woodland and rolling green countryside.

It really is the most beautiful location for a humanist wedding in the gardens or within the the romantic ruined walls of the stone Orangery… or in the wondrous woodland aveune near the house!

Curator Anna is here to tell us a little bit more about this fabulous setting as well as touching on the styled shoot.


Notes from Chateau La Belotterie


The Chateau

The house is truly romantic and has a very welcoming and relaxed atmosphere – La Belotterie offers you a real, old fashioned taste of this beautiful area of the South of France.

If you would like a traditional ceremony there is a fantastic church within 3 mins drive or as mentioned, we have a wonderful array of spots dotted around the grounds for a humanist celebration. Wedding Receptions take place both within the gorgeous hall which has three huge windows and large stone steps down on to the receptions lawns. Here there are fantastic views of the Pyrenees mountains and the sunsets are stunning.

If you’re currently searching for a true industrial space with enough white walls to be classed as a ‘blank canvas’ then friends, you can stop the search…

We’ve long been fans of the Hackney Venues collection and in particular The West Reservoir Centre in East London. This sailing centre features a 1930s red-brick tower boasting fascinating structural design elements, flooded by natural light.

Today we’re showing you how to use the space and style it with a chic but industrial vibe thanks to a whole team of talented suppliers including Hannah Charlotte Weddings, Bow & Beau, Catherine Short Floral Design, Oh Wonder Calligraphy and many, many more.

Thanks to Bai & Elle Photography for capturing all the gorgeousness and of course the mini-film, which is definitely worth a watch!

With so many options, trends and palettes out there for weddings these days, it’s sometimes all too easy to overlook the sheer brilliance of the simple white wedding.

Well, thanks to the lovely Louise from B.LOVED and a host of talented suppliers, the white wedding has been given a modern makeover. We knew the perfect venue to host such a shoot and we’re so thrilled to be able to share with you the One Events collection in such a stylish and inspirational way.

First up, some words from the stylist herself…

The statement White wedding Shoot


Shot in the all-white, light-filled interiors of One Events by fine-art photographer Hannah Duffy, it’s the perfect modern fine-art white wedding inspiration for the overwhelmed bride. Back to basics, using a one-colour palette, my team of talented pro’s and I created something elegant to show how you can take one simple colour – white – and create something that’s still interesting and visually exciting.

Bohemian Botanics at Hill Place


Images by Angela Ward Brown Photography.

This is pretty much my dream shoot… It combines all of my faves; boho vibes, botanical touches and the sacred ‘getting ready’ ritual that is so, so important.

Hill Place is a new addition to our collection and I’m completely in love with the style of this Georgian Country House. Don’t be fooled by it’s typically classic exterior, because behind this facade is a very cool team – What Peggy Did Next.

Oh and there might just be a tantalising Special Offer for those of you wishing to marry Summer 2017!

Notes from Hill Place


Welcome to Hill Place, Swanmore, a Georgian country villa set within twenty acres of Hampshire parkland. The ideal venue for your exclusive-use, wedding, house party or event.

Hill Place is first and foremost a private home which gives you a hug as you walk in (as will the staff and the dogs!). It is most definitely not a corporate, cold, corridor laden old house; and we would not dream of dictating your day to you – we’re here to make it what you want it to be.
