Combining stately proportions, dreamy country charm and eclectic curiosities to spare, this rustic styled shoot at Ellingham Hall showcased the versatility of this bewildering bolthole.
Picture the scene. Towering fronds of dried palm leaves and sheathes of creamy pampas create a textural backdrop, with wicker furniture, macramé throws and draped terracotta taffeta adding to the bohemian vibe.
Not what you’d expect from your typical 19th century hall in the heart of the Northumbrian countryside, right?
As you can see, Ellingham Hall isn’t your typical country pile.
Just as you’ll dress your bridal party to fit your colour palette and big-day theme, the sensitively-updated manor house is primed for transformation.
Floral stylists The Whole Sch-bang, lofted trapeze centrepieces dressed with dried hush-hued blooms for added texture while stylish stationery from Prints by Sophie provided a pretty personal touch.
“We wanted to show just how much you can transform a venue. It’s a fresh take for forward-thinking couples looking for this ever-popular dried boho styling.” – Rachel, Marketing Manager at Ellingham Hall
The Little Cakery’s masterful strokes were showcased with a grand wafer paper gateaux and little favour lollies.
While your guests are distracted by the Instagram stories opportunities (the roaming peacocks are crying out for the boomerang treatment), you two will be creating content for the ages with your photographer.
We suggest, nay insist, that brides follow our model’s lead and find their light for a solo portrait in front of the venue’s iconic circular window.
