Nestled amongst the hills of South Devon, the versatile spaces and romantic grounds of Kingston Estate paint a picture-perfect backdrop for this styled shoot. From the breathtakingly beautiful Georgian mansion and rustic-luxe climes of the Linhay and Cowshed Barns to the the light-filled Dining Room with views across the rose and parterre gardens, the shoot takes in just some of the estate’s incredibly beautiful backdrops.
“We opted for a modern sage, glass and silver look with a luxe finish,” explains Laura Parker of All Floral, who styled the shoot alongside Laura Louise Hall. “The ceremony focused on creating a beautiful ambience with the candlelit aisle and our large foliage and rose arrangements as the main feature in the barn.”
A clean modern sage look carries into the reception space, allowing the natural beauty of the scene to shine through, the statement floral centrepieces bringing a sense of opulence echoed in the silver accents of the tabletops. Tapered and pillar candles in glass jars bring depth and texture as well as casting a soft glow over proceedings. “We also mixed centrepieces together with the foliage range and the glass candelabras to demonstrate that centrepieces can complement each other without matching,” explains Laura.
Topped with lovingly crafted florals, the sleek tiered cake makes an elegant focal point styled with floating candles. “I’ve always believed the cake deserves much more attention than it sometimes gets!” says Laura.
The glamorously styled setting makes the ideal canvas to showcase the Randy Fenoli collection from Plymouth bridal boutique, The Ivory Lounge. Each gown blends seductive silhouettes, gorgeous fabrics and exquisite embellishment. From the sheer back, intricate detailing and showstopping train of Dakota to the fit-and-flare silhouette, fine lace and tulle bows of Delilah, the sweeping staircase and light-filled halls make a dream pairing with these head-turning gowns.
Meanwhile, the suit from Zebel Bespoke’s made to measure range combines a traditional shawl lapel, pleated shirt, black bow tie and lightly tailored trousers for a timelessly stylish look befitting the setting.
