Elegant Equestrian Wedding Inspiration

I’ll be the first to admit I was a total horse-nut as a child (anyone else?!), and have always dreamed of having an equine friend on hand during my Big Day. This inspiration shoot, practically bursting at the seams with British charm (Wellies!), and not one, but two beautiful horses, was all the encouragement I need to keep on dreaming. Click through the gallery here, and you might be having some horsey wedding dreams soon, too!

Manor

From Jane Riddell of Planned for PerfectionThis fabulous equestrian shot was taken on location at Wyck Hill House Hotel and Spa, an elegant 18th century Manor House located in the heart of the beautiful English countryside.

Wyck Hill House approached me to help them create a styled wedding shoot that combined its opulence and grandeur with the very essence of Cotswold Life.

Situated in the stunning Gloucestershire countryside, with breath taking views over the rolling hills of The Cotswold, the Manor House is close to the racing town of Cheltenham and the famous Beaufort Polo Club, where Prince’s William and Harry have been known to play, so an equestrian styled shoot seemed rather fitting!

On what turned out to be a rather grey February morning, the roaring log fire and a glow of candle light brought a warmth to the old library and ornate Adams room, whilst the soft blush tones and striking burgundies florals supplied by Stephanie Saunders ensuring an elegant Downton Abbey style back drop…

The beautifully designed stationery by On Cloud Nine, hinted towards the equestrian and country side theme whilst retaining an elegant simplicity and when styled with rustic horseshoes, captured the theme of the shoot perfectly.

The stunning gowns were supplied by The Bridal Room at Broadway, who provided a wonderful mix of satin and lace dresses, offset by gorgeous accessories and complimented beautifully by flowing chiffon bridesmaid dresses from Katherine Allen Bridal and the Cake Chemists provided two incredible wedding cakes.

The winter’s sun made a brief appearance later in the afternoon and the wonderful Laura Power photography was able to capture some bridal shots with the horses, which ended the day perfectly….what better way to spend a day than ‘horsing around’ in the Cotswolds with a team of Cotswold’s finest wedding suppliers!

Villa

From Facibeni FotografiaIf we talk about weddings and elopements, Tuscany is one of the most beautiful destinations. Florence is the most popular location for weddings between art, history and secular Italian culture.

For those who are looking for something rustic, the beautiful colored hills and dirt roads surrounded by cypress trees are ideal for intimate elopements in the midst of pristine nature: moving celebrations, amid the noise of the cicadas and the rustling of the wind.



Borgo Santo Pietro is one of the most beautiful resorts in the entire region. It is two steps away from the secular Abbey of San Galgano, in a pristine natural area. The village consists of a central structure that houses the reception hall and the restaurant, around which stand many villas surrounded by flower gardens, olive groves and cypress trees.

The villas are fully built of stone, and refurbished by the European property respecting the old architectural standards of the old village. A timeless place to relax and spend the days in luxury and relaxation.

Jenny and Michael celebrated an intimate wedding under a weeping willow in front of a lake. It was a moving ceremony, interrupted only by bird songs.



After the ceremony, I took some relaxed pictures of them, as they walked smiling among the flower gardens with the sun behind them, just before sunset. Given the beauty of the place, it was not that difficult. Borgo Santo Pietro is a dreamy location for any wedding photographer. The photo shoot could not be more fascinating and complete.



Borgo Santo Pietro also contains within it a fabulous restaurant, famous throughout Tuscany. There could be no better time for a romantic dinner at dusk: dishes of meat and mushrooms of the territory and a great wine to toast to this fabulous elopement.



No, there’s no better place to get married in than Tuscany. Don’t you think so?

Chateau

From Brosnan Photographic Vicky and Adam chose the French Riviera to host their wedding. Chateau Diter in Grasse has an incredible landscape. The newly renovated French chateau has an Italian flair and is set among the rolling hilly Provence landscape. Vicky, Adam, and their guests enjoyed stunning scenery while sipping on bubbly and watching the sun set during the open air dinner under the stars.

With every moment happening on site, Vicky and Adam created a relaxing day and their ceremony in the gazebo overlooking the french hills was utterly breathtaking. Apart from Vicky’s sweet custom made dress, the talented ladies at Lavender & Rose Weddings created and coordinated all the beauty.

Romantic Picnic Elopement Inspiration

Infused with beautiful hues and lovely florals from Elodie Wilmès, From Love & Tralala, this seaside picnic elopement captured by Michael Ferire plays out like a dream. Simple yet romantic, with thoughtful styling and a sweet boho vibe, this gallery is one you’ll want to cozy up to. See it all here. 

From Michael FerireThis inspirational photo shoot was imagined and designed by Elodie Wilmès, event and floral designer, and Michael Ferire, photographer. We started from the authenticity of the relationship: the happiness of being together and alone in the world. We developed the idea of ​​a surprise: a picnic by the sea, simple, wild and sensual. The Belgian North Sea, which creates a special atmosphere both raw and romantic, was the perfect place.

For the decoration, we played with a palette of colors and materials like copper, wood, dark brown, pink and red. We wanted a mixture of pure and elegant Scandinavian design and antiques for the authentic and lively touch. For the flowers, Elodie worked with warm tones that matched the wild grass found in the dunes.

To set up this photo shoot, we had the desire to work with a team of providers who share the same sensitivity and a keen eye for detail.
