The first thing that strikes you about Holesfoot is the incredible scenery. The Italian gardens provide a beautiful setting for outdoor ceremonies, and with 20 acres of private grounds, (and even a lake!) there’s so many picture perfect locations.
The wedding shoot was styled with a soft, natural aesthetic in mind. The amazing Chelsea at Seed and Wild created spring inspired floral arrangements, including a table meadow scape, dressed pillars and a full length full floral table runner. The aim was to complement and enhance the natural beauty of the location, rather than overpowering it with elaborate decorations or flashy accessories, and the colour scheme of peaches, blushes and ivories complemented the setting perfectly.
The bride and groom (Real life model couple Valentina and Daniel) were styled in complementary outfits that both matched the luxury feel of the shoot, but also the relaxed indoor setting of the main house. The bride wore a stunning lace dress with a pussy bow style ribbon, while the groom was dressed in a classic dark suit and bow tie.
The cake design was one of my most favourite in recent years (yes, I know I say this for pretty much every cake I create!). A minimalist style allowed the fresh flowers to shine, with extra details from the textured icing and edible wafer paper lace adding a luxurious touch.
Overall, the styled shoot at Holesfoot was a stunning display of elegant simplicity. The location provided a perfect backdrop for a celebration of love, and the styling was executed flawlessly.
Hopefully these beautiful images have given you some inspiration on how to celebrate your big day in a natural and authentic way! Need some more wedding ideas, read my posts on Lake District Wedding Inspiration at Town Head Estate and Modern Wedding Inspiration in Windermere.
