Wedding styling: country house romance

Prepare to fall in love with a fairytale-worthy scene brimming with pretty details, fresh flowers and elegant fashions at Ugbrooke House

Ugbrooke House sits amidst acres of idyllic parkland in a south Devon valley, where tranquil lakes nestle Capability Brown landscaped gardens. The house is the epitome of elegance with a history dating back over 900 years. From its sweeping driveway to its opulent interiors, it makes a timeless canvas for a romantic country house wedding.

This air of romance was the starting point for this styled shoot where whimsy meets sophistication. “The vision was to create a wildly romantic country wedding whilst still retaining an air of stately elegance and luxury,” explains Jen Shoubridge of Jennifer Jane Photography who coordinated and photographed the shoot. “Inspired by the beautiful soft tones of the brickwork of the house, we used a soft palette of cream, white, pale pink and peach.”

Gorgeous petals in this soft medley of colours adorn the steps of the garden pavilion where vows can be taken overlooking the lake. “The abundant wild blooms bring romance and whimsy to the elegant and chic vision,” says Jen. They also bring delicate beauty to the tabletops where blooms spill from vintage metallic urns and glass vases. White pearl beaded plates, gold cutlery and crystal glassware add a luxurious touch, reflecting the opulence of the setting.

Accents of gold foil catch the light on the pale pink macaron wedding favours, while a gorgeously styled selection of further sweet delights – coconut ice squares, iced biscuits and marshmallows – complement the tiered cake: a sleek vision of white ruffles edged with gold foil.

With its sequined illusion bodice and puddle train, the bridal gown strikes a classic yet contemporary chord. Together with gold accessories, a cathedral-length embroidered veil and, of course, her dashing groom in a sharp tuxedo, she looks every inch the heroine of a modern country house romance.
