England in Bloom at St Giles House

Written by Emma Hla
Known as the ‘Fine Art Venue’, St Giles House has hosted a number of beautiful weddings, events and editorials since it re-launched as a wedding venue and family home.

History can be found in abundance at this Dorset venue and an award-winning restoration has seen it brought back to life. With 5 principal rooms to choose from for your ceremony and reception, acres of parkland, a secret nightclub and truly stunning bedrooms for you and your guests, I dare you not to be swept up by the sheer romance of this country house.

Stylist Jessica, of Jessica Roberts Design, created this ‘England in Bloom’ story and St Giles House was of course the perfect backdrop…

Notes from the Stylist

Jessica says…

Having lived amid the sandy dunes of Dubai for 8 years, I crave the English summer and all the beauty it beholds, which is why I simply had to create a shoot in the UK last summer. 

Set against the backdrop of the stunning ancestral home, St Giles, in all its crumbly history, we set out to celebrate our bride. Her nervous but excited energy was palpable as she got ready for one of the biggest days of her life. 

Organic florals echoed the whimsical nature of our setting and the colours reflected England in bloom. Small details on the table such as the triangular name settings mirrored the huge motifs that hang over the doorways at St Giles House. Otherwise, the details were fresh, clean and contemporary.
