Spring Wedding Inspiration in the English Countryside

Written by Emma Hla
This relaxed and elegant shoot was inspired by the natural beauty and gently rolling countryside surrounding intimate wedding venue Manor Hill House in Worcestershire.

Taking their cue from 2020 floral trends, stylist Louise (The Brand Studio) and florist Amy (Bo Boutique) centred their design on statement floral arrangements. They created a stunning floral archway for the ceremony pavilion using branches of birch and trailing amaranth, bundles of rosehip and pink snowberries, with dahlia and roses adding colour and wispy grasses providing texture to reflect the wild informality of the English countryside.

Delicate meadow-like florals were also used on the tablescape, bringing the outdoors into the light-filled marquee where rustic tables and benches add to the informal atmosphere.

A mix of crisp and modern white crockery and vintage cutlery and crystal glassware create a timeless feel to the table, set inside the permanent marquee structure overlooking the gardens and fields beyond.

Hand-dyed blush cotton napkins and ribbons complete each setting along with a softly illustrated floral place card designed by Jacquie (White Olive Design Studio) to complement the floral design. Jacquie also created a bespoke, gold foiled and vellum stationery suite incorporating floral details and illustration of the venue, adding a personal touch.

Outside in the informal dining areas, a delicious selection of grazing-style dishes created in house by the chef at Manor Hill House are set alongside a simple and elegant buttercream cake (Farmhouse Cakes) topped with wildflowers to complete the English Meadow look.
