Spring at Howsham Hall

Written by Caitlin Hoare
The venue selected for this splendid editorial shoot was the enchanting Howsham Hall, just a mere 20-minute drive from the historic city of York.

Howsham Hall was the quintessential backdrop for this stylised session, boasting 12 elegantly appointed bedrooms and one of Europe’s most expansive bridal suites, ensuring an awe-inspiring setting.

Add a gorgeous model couple, a statement wedding dress, and vibrant florals (including Icelandic poppies – a favourite!), and the result is spring wedding perfection. It’s elegant, it’s stylish, it’s utterly romantic, and it’s ready for you to dive in…

Notes from the Stylist

Jen says…

Our theme for this captivating shoot revolved around the essence of spring and distinctive love; spring weddings have been gaining remarkable popularity. Collaborating with couple Lorna & Tash infused a distinct and real editorial charm into the project.

The colour palette for the occasion was a vibrant celebration of spring’s finest hues – from delicate lilacs and warm oranges to soft pale blues, creamy neutrals, and the earthy tones of seasonal flowers.

When selecting the perfect gown, our hearts were instantly captured by the lavender design from Millia London. This striking dress was a true showstopper, adding an exquisite touch to the entire production.

Our vision was to craft an elevated, editorial, and vibrantly colourful springtime design brimming with life. We achieved this by incorporating an abundance of candles and textured, coloured fabrics to create an immersive experience.

The talented Emma from The Petal Studio artfully crafted two grand floral columns adorned with a splendid array of bright and pastel spring blossoms. Flowers played a pivotal role in our design, gracing every facet of the editorial, including a breathtaking cake by the gifted artisans at Where the Ribbon Ends.

For couples aspiring to create a similar style for their special day, we offer this advice: Embrace a rich spectrum of colours and make your floral arrangements the focal point of your decor budget. It’s the perfect recipe for an unforgettable and picturesque celebration.
