Peachy Perfection Meets Regency Romance

Written by Caitlin Hoare
As we eagerly await the unveiling of season three of Bridgerton (not long now, folks!), today’s styled shoot at Parish’s House couldn’t be more timely.

Inspired by Pantone’s Colour of the Year, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the grandeur of the Regency era, and the stunning outdoor settings of Parish’s House, this editorial styled by Hannah Baskett, flowered by The Way To Bloom and captured by Jennifer Jane Photography, is a true celebration of modern elegance.

Envision armfuls of gorgeous seasonal blooms, a lavish cocktail setup (keep scrolling to see!), majestic white peacocks, a flowing bridal gown, and a stunningly photogenic couple. This is elegance redefined for the modern age—dive in, explore and fall in love with every detail. We certainly have, and we think you will, too!

Notes from the Photographer

Jennifer Says…

Situated in Bath, Parish’s House was an idyllic setting for the wedding shoot. Set against the beautiful countryside backdrop, the stunning Regency-era property, steeped in history, was a true embodiment of summertime elegance.

The theme combined the whimsical romantic Midsummer Night’s Dream with a luxurious and fashion-forward style. Set at the end of the summer, the dreamy summer sunshine and relaxed countryside setting were combined with Pantone’s colour of the year, Peach Fuzz.

The bride wore a beautiful white gown by Millia London, a boned corset dress with an open back, ruffles on the shoulders, and a skirt with a cascade of layered tulle ruffles. The dress was a masterpiece, exuding the timeless elegance of a Regency-era bride while maintaining a modern edge. With its flowing layers, the gown perfectly captured the ethereal essence of a midsummer’s dream while retaining the Regency era’s glamorous feel. This was combined with peachy feathered shoes by Diane Hassall. The bride’s make-up, created by the talented Leanna Biggs Makeup and Hair, was intentionally subtle and natural and took a modern twist with a hint of copper eyeshadow, lending a contemporary allure. A darker lip colour was applied to elevate the elegance, infusing a subtle yet distinct touch of glamour. Complementing the makeup, the bride’s hair, styled in a Heidi-style plait, added a structured and elegant touch. This classic yet intricate updo exuded Regency-era grace and provided a softer edge, beautifully marrying tradition with a touch of contemporary finesse.

Beside the radiant bride stood a groom clad in a classic black tuxedo. The choice of a black tuxedo was a nod to the wedding’s elegant and luxurious theme, perfectly complementing the bride’s ethereal look. This couple exuded sophistication and style.

A charming orchard of trees was the perfect setting for the wedding breakfast. Vases of flowers hung gracefully from the branches, creating a whimsical and natural atmosphere. The table was a work of art adorned with a runner of flowers atop metal stands, with smaller floral displays scattered throughout. The ends of the table were also decorated with beautiful blooms. The table settings were nothing short of regal. Pink and gold-edged scalloped plates, peach serviettes, and gold cutlery adorned the dining tables. Gold-edged glassware and candles in elegant gold candlesticks added a touch of luxury to every place setting. A freestanding cocktail drinks bar was available, ensuring guests could toast the happy couple in style.

The Way To Bloom was the florist, who created a floating display over the water feature where the cake was displayed, tall floral displays across the table, and a stunning ceremony display.

To recreate the enchanting look of this Midsummer’s Dream-inspired wedding, begin with a pastel palette of peachy-coloured florals to capture the soft, whimsical essence. For the ceremony area, employ a variety of urns and vases, arranging them at different heights for an unstructured feel that mirrors the dreamy atmosphere. Keep the cake elegantly simple with white icing, adorned with delicate sugarcraft flowers or natural blooms to add texture. The wedding table can be replicated by crafting a cascading floral runner or utilising high stands to display the blossoms, creating a visual feast for the guests. For the cocktail bar, showcase your drinks on a shelf or arrange them into a champagne tower for a touch of luxury. The florals used in the ceremony area can be repurposed for the wedding breakfast table and bar, ensuring a cohesive and sustainable aesthetic. To mirror the bride and groom’s captivating looks, opt for a smart black suit, morning suit, or black tie for the groom. In contrast, the bride’s signature style can be achieved with a Millia London Dress or a similar gown boasting voluminous ruffles for that ethereal touch.
