Wedding styling: ethereal autumn elopement

Warm autumnal hues meet ethereal accents in this sustainable vineyard elopement



The draw of Devon as an elopement destination and, in particular, the leafy vines, rolling meadows and away-from-it-all charm of Brickhouse Vineyard, inspired this romantic styled shoot.

“It was important to me to showcase the very best of Devon and Somerset, using an all-female team of small business owners,” says photographer Hannah Sharpe, who coordinated the shoot. “I chose like-minded women with a sustainable approach, being mindful of how much waste a wedding can create.”

These sustainable elements include the vegan cake and flowers, which combined dried flowers with carefully selected fresh blooms. “None of the flowers were imported,” explains Hannah. “Our florist, Mimosa & Moss, uses seasonal flowers grown in the UK as part of her eco-friendly approach.”

The venue’s 18th century thatched round house and vineyard, aglow with the rich colours of autumn, provide the perfect canvas for a love story styled with ethereal and seasonal touches. “I asked for the colours to be kept true to the colours outside, and so we were treated to an array of rich browns, mahogany, toffee and burgundy,” says Hannah.

The seasonal palette weaves through every detail – from the cake and flowers to the make-up – while the bridal looks carry the captivating beauty of the scene, with dream-like gowns and texture-rich accents in the whimsical flower crown and jewellery.
