Wedding styling: timeless romance at Pynes House

Timeless romance, abundant florals, luxe styling & Bridgerton-worthy gowns at Pynes House

Graceful, elegant and steeped in history, Pynes House offers period-drama-worthy romance in the picturesque Exe Valley. Indeed, it is believed to be the inspiration for Barton Park in Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility.

Flanked by sweeping meadows and woodland, immaculate lawns and picturesque bloom-filled gardens, the grounds set the tone for the wow-worthy interiors. The huge ornate doors open onto a stunning entrance hall with a dramatic stone staircase, an elegant Ballroom flooded with light and a myriad of beautifully styled reception rooms and bedrooms. As photographer Tara Statton explains, “It’s a real slice of English luxury, and I knew it would be the perfect location for some seriously dreamy fine art wedding inspiration.”

Heaps of fresh florals, luxurious table styling and gorgeous bridal wear were the cornerstones of Tara’s vision of timeless romance. “We combined a colour palette of creams and golds with hints of pink and peachy tones, with candlelight, lavish stationery and floaty fabrics in the Ballroom for effortless style,” she says.

The cake table echoes the soft palette, the crisp white confections styled with linens and florals in barely-there hues, while the carnival of fresh flowers make the most beautiful statement in the Drawing Room. “Our ceremony aisle was lined with a meadow of peonies, garden roses and dahlias, and when paired with some seriously stunning gowns, gave us total Bridgerton vibes,” says Tara.

The gowns carry the dreamy aesthetic through delicate floral embellishment – think shimmery petal sequins and intricate laser-cut blooms – and skirts in shades of ivory and mink, while the dainty jewels and crown featuring clusters of enamel flowers also nod to fashion’s current Bridgerton-inspired love affair with Regency style. A seamless blend of classic and contemporary for a fresh-from-a-novel romance in Devon.
