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.

Notes from the Venue & the Bride
I’m so thrilled to be sharing the elopement wedding of Alice & Jonathan. The couple married here back in October and their day was simple yet utterly beautiful.
The Bride’s Stepmother owns a bridal shop, Pure Couture Bridal Boutique in Beaconsfield, and it’s here Alice found her dress. An Essense of Australia gown (Pearl Mikado worn without the jewelled belt) it suited her so perfectly. The dress has a jaw dropping train and POCKETS!
Alice teamed her dress with a cute little shrug to keep off any autumn chill and a pretty bouquet by Amanda Randell. The couple’s gorgeous little son Jack was adorable as you can see from the photos.
Alice & Jonathan got married in front of the fire on the glass covered terrace, had a drinks reception in the wedding barn during which they had a few photos with Clare Kinchin our photographer in the gardens and along the river walk. The wedding party then returned to the terrace for a wedding breakfast in front of the fire, prepared by our private chef. After the wedding breakfast we brought in comfy sofas for everyone to enjoy an evening in front of a roaring fire with tea, coffee and wedding cake.

A little venue focus for you lovely lot today because this is too pretty not to share!
This beautiful family house has a long and rich history. In the past 400 years it has been at the heart of politics, philosophy and social thought whilst located in the hidden heart of Wimborne St Giles.
In recent times an award winning restoration has seen it brought back to life and become a family home once again.
We are now excited to share it with you… Meet St Giles House in Dorset.

Coombe Trenchard, cradled within Dartmoor’s epic landscapes, is a tranquil venue with Art Nouveau charm and stunning features. There’s a stream, sweeping lawns, an Italian terrace where marquees can be sighted with views from the Italian columns across to Brent Tor and now, a newly refurbished snug.
We love this venue and we also love the ladies at Blue Fizz Events who were the masterminds behind the styling for this piece. Whilst we’re in the midst of Christmas, fairylights and mulled wine why not take a refreshing step into Spring with this garden inspired styled shoot captured by McKenzie Brown.
Notes from Blue Fizz
The focus of this shoot is on the beautifully refurbished coach house at Coome Trenchard which offers a bar area, dance floor and snug area complete with sofas, easy chairs and an entrance area with fire pits on either side. This venue is versatile and breathtaking and our theme too inspiration from its gardens which are open to the public during the week. I wanted a focus on the flora and green-on-green that an English country garden brings with a nod to the modern for our forward thinking couples!
I imagined an informal yet decadent banquet on the lawn with rustic furniture, delicate vintage crockery and vintage champagne saucers all supplied by Combe Trenchard, complete with edible floating flowers from The Flower Mill in the champagne! I created handmade napkins from a vintage fabric and used blades of greenery as the napkin rings alongside some of our Blue Fizz Events hire items, our abundance of flowers and greenery were supplied by The Flower Mill who brought together the show stopping displays, head piece and a riot of fresh colours throughout.

Wondering if a woodland wedding is for you…? Would it be a magical fairytale, a rustic shindig or more barefoot bohemian…? Well how about a blend of all three!
This is the vibe of Emma & Seb’s big day set within their very own woods. Taking inspiration from their natural surroundings their wedding is filled to the brim with décor ideas and love. They also had a little bit of help from the fab folks at World Inspired Tents and their awesome tipis.
Notes from the Bride
We own the woods, every day we’re wandering the woods, it’s our life!
Being so close to the woodland has made our appreciation and respect for the natural beauty strengthen. The beautiful wildlife which lives in the 80 acre ancient woodland is where we got our inspiration to have our big day here, so it made sense to keep the woodland /rustic theme to our wedding.
