Meadowsweet at Pennard House

Written by Emma Hla

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.

The beautiful bohemian-esque dresses are by Anna Kara at Luella’s Bridal and feature modern lace detailing and luxurious beading. I adore the ‘getting-ready’ shots and here the bride wears delicate lingerie from Pompadour, accessories from Britten and fine jewellery from Monica Vinader.

We love working with Tori Harris and as Louise’s makeup artist of choice for this shoot you can see why she’s an industry fave as well as a bride’s dream. Bold brows, smokey eyes and strong cheeks made a fashion-forward and contemporary statement.

The natural environment of Pennard House was perfectly mirrored by Jay’s complimentary flowers. Jay is a firm believer in using British flowers and to capture this ‘meadowsweet’ vibe the bouquet and installations were heavy with foliage, grasses and seed heads. Over the table, the ‘hanging meadow’ combined all of the above with lashings of trailing foliage full of whimsy and romance.

This super stylish tabelscape is a wonderful collaboration between Louise and Prezola, the ultimate Gift List. The Chunky stoneware, softly draped linens, hammered brassware and the soft grey calligraphy from the stationery is a beautiful blend and perfect for a laid-back outdoor celebration.
