If you are a Bride to Be, keen to get married in beautiful surroundings, in a countryside exclusive use venue, a marquee wedding could be your ideal wedding.
Today's inspiration is brought to you via a styled shoot I was part of in the spring. Think elegant candlelit tablescapes, fine art photography, boutique bridal wear and English garden florals.
The concept for this countryside marquee wedding was designed and co-ordinated by Emma Turner Weddings, a planner and On The Day Wedding Co-ordinator in Essex. Emma carefully selected suppliers to create a classic, traditional and elegant wedding with a hint of bohemia.
The venue, an arched roof marquee situated within the grounds of exclusive use Essex wedding venue, That Amazing Place, was the perfect blank canvas to showcase this timeless and classic styling. The colour palette was a celebration of the season, using oranges and peachy hues, set against a grey cotton runner. It was made contemporary using copper and gold accents in the crockery and table décor.
The fine art photography was shot by Amanda Karen Photography. Amanda made excellent use of the abundance of light in the marquee. She found beautiful locations to photograph; including in front of a fruit tree full to the brim with cherry blossom. The drape lined, panoramic countryside views from the marquee, added to the ambience and romanticism of the images.
Shown below are some of the photographs in the collection, which show elements of the simple, elegant tablescape, the marquee décor, boutique bridal wear and accessories.
