Your Perfect Wedding Morning at Howsham Hall

Written by Emma Hla
Howsham Hall is one of Yorkshire’s most impressive stately homes, nestled in acres of private (and pretty) gardens and grounds and found just 20-minutes from the historic city of York.

A weekend wedding venue with a difference, Howsham Hall boasts 12 stunning bedrooms, blending luxe and utterly charming interiors, making this the perfect getaway for you and your guests. But this country house holds a secret… it boasts one of the best Bridal Suites in the world!

Complete with its own lounge, dressing room, bedroom and bathroom of dreams, their gorgeous new suite is also home to dressing platforms, floor-to-ceiling mirrors and oodles of natural light.

This beautiful styled shoot was created to celebrate everything there is to love about the wedding morning (spoiler alert: there’s a lot!). Kick start the day with a breakfast for you and your wedding party, which is served straight to the lounge by your own events team, so you don’t have to lift a finger! For this relaxing part of the day, the bridesmaids wore bespoke sage green dressing gowns by Six Stories, the perfect loungewear to sit back and relax in whilst the hair and makeup team arrive to work their magic.

The all-important dress reveal moment is made even more perfect at Howsham with the dressing platform, complete with mirrors as far as the eye can see and natural light streaming in through the large, statement windows. The wedding dress featured was provided by Treasured Brides who provide brides-to-be with the most elegant of wedding gowns, perfect for this special setting. The whole look was brought together with bouquets featuring creams and greens, and bridesmaids in satin sage dresses.

For this inspiration piece, delicate candlelight and fresh flowers finished the suite off perfectly, thanks to Kim from Ambience Venue Styling and Leonie from All in Bloom. Your wedding morning is such an exciting, magical time and is where you also get to have to some beautiful keepsake photos with your favourite people so why not style the space to suit your unique wedding vibe.

But this isn’t all! To ensure even more of the wedding party are included in the festivities, Howsham Hall has another ‘getting ready’ wing with bedrooms galore. Once the party is ready, they can make their way to the Billiards Room where they can spend some time relaxing together before the wedding guests start to arrive and they embark on one of the most amazing and memorable days of their lives!
