Stourhead wedding |
When I met up with Jess & Rich in early 2019, we chatted about their plans to have a gorgeous wedding filled with flowers! Stourhead is a gorgeous venue and always lovely to be back :) Jess is super passionate about the South West and its amazing countryside, National Trust areas and during her wedding planning, wanted as many suppliers based from there too!
They wanted their day full of florals with a touch of vintage, so opted for fresh blooms, bunting, paper lanterns and fairy lights to decorate their reception
“Siobhan was amazing on the day, making sure we got all the shots she knew we would want, and everyone has said how incredible and beautiful the pictures are, and that is down to her amazing talent. I couldn’t recommend her enough! She is absolutely fabulous.”
Jess looked like a dream in her soft blush pink ombré dress by Needle & Thread. Inspired by the beauty of flowers throughout the day, Jess’ dress was no exception, covered in delicate floral embellishment and embroidery, with a pretty scalloped lace neckline and sleeves.
Emma Dee hand made the veil, using off-cuts from the alterations made to her dress so that Jess could have the magical, floral embroidered veil she had dreamed of. It was then edged with the same scalloped lace used to make the dress sleeves and neckline.
The whole bridal party carried gorgeous, vibrant bouquets, which included dahlias, daisies, roses and statice in shades of pink, orange, purple, all made by Jodie Farrell of Walled Garden Weddings.
After the ceremony and confetti, we did some family and friends photos and then walked around the spectacular eighteenth-century landscaped gardens of Stourhead, which was another favourite moment from the day, before making our way to Stourton Memorial Hall on the Stourhead estate for their reception.
“That was a moment because it was our moment alone, away from everyone to just enjoy the peace and beautiful scenery.”
Jess also made the very yummy looking white chocolate and raspberry wedding cake, adorned with edible flowers – beautiful! Everyone partied well into the night to the ceilidh sounds of Uncle Tom’s Cobbleys
