Love Blossoms: Romantic White & Greenery Styled Shoot

Inspiration – 24.10.18

One of our favourite things about weddings at Combermere Abbey is that no two celebrations are the same. Each couple brings their own personalities, colours and themes to make Combermere’s elegant spaces their own. Today, we’re sharing a romantic white and greenery styled shoot to help inspire you.

The theme for our greenery styled shoot combined timeless elegance, in keeping with the Abbey, with contemporary touches and breath-taking flowers.

Styling The Ceremony

Glass lanterns, flickering candles and white roses subtly styled the idyllic Edwardian Glasshouse. Adding armfuls of greenery to the arrangements, created by White Wysteria, provided a more rustic look and a beautiful link to the lush fruit tree maze beyond the windows.

Similarly, candles and stone pillars topped with blooms created a romantic outdoor ceremony setting in the heart of the maze.

A Breathtaking Reception

Moving through to the elegant Walled Gardens and into the Pavilion, the team created a luxurious reception scene. Billowing white blossom trees created eye-catching centrepieces, complementing the floral urns at the entrance.

Overhead, the sparkling canopy ceiling and suspended chandeliers enhanced the glow from the candles, while illuminated wooden letters, provided by The Word Is Love, added a rustic feel. These could easily be moved after the wedding breakfast to create atmosphere on the dance floor, which waits beyond the reveal curtain.

The reception tables exuded an elegant theme with mercury glass style votives and silver urns. Again, a combination of white blooms and several types of foliage create romance at this greenery styled shoot. A calligraphy name card, illustrated menu and grey linen serviette added style to each place setting.

The cake, created by Jo’s Couture Cakes, echoed the floral theme over a stunning six tiers. Beading, sugar flowers and ruffles gave each tier a unique look.

Romantic Photographs

Outside, Combermere Abbey’s immaculate gardens set the perfect scene for wedding photos. From a romantic walk through the knot garden beside the North Wing, to photographs by the mere, in the walled rose garden and in the Crossley car, this greenery styled shoot captured Combermere’s fairy-tale setting in all its glory.

The Perfect Aisle Style

In keeping with the romantic, floral theme behind this styled shoot, the couple both included traditional blooms in their accessories. The floral motif continued on the lace of the off-the-shoulder bridal gown, created by Claire Mischevani. Lizzie Griffiths Hair & Make-Up created the bride’s romantic look, featuring smokey eyes and a soft red lipstick.
