If you’ve just started your venue search I do hope you’ve come across the delicious Brinkburn Northumberland. If not, then this is the moment you’ll fall in love with this magical location.

Styled to perfection by Helen from The Wedding Bazaar and captured by Georgina Harrison Photography, this styled wedding shoot will truly inspire your planning! So get those Pinterest fingers at the ready, there’s so much to love!

From sexy florals, Valentino rockstuds, touches of black and gold to twirling Halfpenny London gowns…

Notes from The Wedding Bazaar


Nestled amongst breathtaking scenery and picturesque river walks… Brinkburn definitely makes your heart skip a beat and allows your imagination to go wild at the endless beauty of this country estate venue.

With a perfect neutral palette in the aptly named white room; the inspiration behind this shoot was all about dark hues of black and gold, soft feminine hints of pink and decadent dipped feathers. We wanted raw love with dramatic gowns meets elegant simplicity.

I adore working with Georgina Harrison Photography and after collaborating on multiple projects together I just knew she was the perfect photographer to capture the wild, untamed beauty of the surroundings whilst showcasing the elegant and refined elements of the shoot too.

A Fine Romance at Pynes House

Pynes House, located just outside of Exeter, is one of our favourite wedding venues in Devon. This stunning private estate with its romantic Country House set in 37 acres of parkland, was the perfect location for this shoot by Blue Fizz Events.

For this simple & romantic shoot set against the backdrop of Pynes House, they took influence from classic novels.

A Fine Romance

Blue Fizz:

The cool, calm and collected palette and light-flooded rooms gave us this soft and timeless look.

Unstructured plaiting and foliage weaved in to the hair was created by Gerschwins Hair Design. The dewy makeup with a heavy eye brings this demure look up to date, effortlessly achieved by Genevieve Satha.

The subtle palette was infused into stunning cakes that made a statement without being over the top, handmade by Cherry Blossom Cakes.

Into the Woods with Wilderness Weddings Kent

Wilderness Wedding Venue in Kent opened its gates over a gorgeous weekend of Autumn sunshine at the end of October, they were bathed in warm sunshine all weekend! Alongside welcoming their newly-engaged couples, they had created a beautiful styled scene that was captured by Matilda Delves.

Today, owner Anna is talking us through their gorgeously boho styling…

into the woods


The focus of our shoot was the magnificent tipis standing in a woodland clearing surrounded by ancient oak tress, silver birch and wild ferns. This magical area has views out over the pretty wooden bridge across Wilderness to Deerson Lake and, as the sun goes down, the most incredible pink skies are highlighted by the autumnal mists.

We were inspired by the amazing autumn we have been lucky enough to have – the majestic trees decorated in their copper, chestnut and golden leaves and the wonderful long skies we have in Wilderness.

Hire-Love provided some brilliant vintage props including a rare, double peacock chair, wooden trestle tables, large antlers, copper candle sticks and goblets, vintage crockery, terrariums, tea lights, an antique chandelier and sumptuous furnishings. Gwenda from her own Bohotanical provided some fab wilderness inspired creations for the tipis and reception areas of the venue.

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 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.
