Wedding styling: dreamy flower-filled country house romance

A dreamily romantic and flower-filled modern country house wedding in Cornwall



A Georgian manor house in the Cornish countryside, a pretty palette of barely-there shades and an abundance of flowers – this styled shoot at Polstrong Manor is pure romance.

Striking the perfect balance between timelessly beautiful and contemporary luxe, the aesthetic is inspired by a neutral scheme that would complement a wedding at any time of year. “We wanted to raise the bar and go high-end and luxurious, but also make sure a couple could recreate the look without spending a fortune,” explains Sophie Walker of The Little Details by Sophie, who coordinated and styled the shoot.

The breathtaking arrangements of flowers cascade down the staircase, hug the chaise lounge and beautifully drape along the bathtub in the bridal suite, while the smaller details add to the elegant mood. “I wanted to add textures, loads of fabrics, ribbons, beautiful velvet-looking candles and textured papers through the stationery,” says Sophie.

Sweet creations share centre stage with the flowers: a textured cake dotted with petals sits pretty on the tablescape, while a frou-frou cake, adorned with elaborate frills and pearls, looks stunning in the bathtub “Later in the day, we added in some more pinks to show couples you can change your theme slightly to make it more ‘party’ later in the evening by only changing the candles,” explains Sophie.

The attention to texture and detail carries into the bridal look – in the soft drape of the silk and the dainty pleats and buttons of the handcrafted gowns, and the hand-embroidered veil and dainty jewellery. It is a seamless blend of classic and modern for an oh-so romantic country house celebration.
