Country house love at Pentillie

Country style wedding

Pentillie Castle makes an enchanting backdrop for an outdoor wedding styled with natural touches

Outdoor weddings are having a moment. In fact, couples have been swooning over everything au naturel for some time now, which is a trend that looks set to be going absolutely nowhere. Whether hosting an outdoors ceremony, bringing the outside in via the decor or staging a gorgeously 'green' day, wild weddings remain the oh-so romantic rage.

This styled shoot is a shining example. Shot at the glorious Pentillie Castle & Estate on the bank of the Tamar River in St Mellion, the couple lose themselves to a myriad of spellbinding settings, all of which provide the most breathtaking of backdrops to their newly-wed love.

After uttering their vows under the Turkey Oak, they take an enchanted tour of Pentillie's locations throughout the 1,500-acre estate including the Castle Loggia, Lime Avenue, orchards, Old Tennis Lawn and Front Lawn to capture the country retreat in all its sprawling glory.

Then there's the ensembles, which beautifully reflect the venue while showcasing a piece of wow-worthy wedding style. With flowing wavy locks adorned with vine leaves and sprigs of baby's breath, the bride emanates a one-with-nature look that is further accentuated with pared-back make-up in natural tones and a fabulous floral lace gown. Meanwhile, the groom perfectly channels laidback rustic charm with a taupe three-piece suit, mint green tie, dried flower buttonhole and tan brogues.

A striking mix of fresh florals and dried flowers with pops of pastel blue feature in the bouquet and pew end decorations, with the arch clad in matching blooms that all work to tie together the look and feel of the day, all the while allowing the surrounding natural landscapes their own heart-stealing space to sing.
