Have you considered running away to the English countryside for your “I dos”? If not, then you might want to reconsider after this! Kirtlington Park is a massive estate tucked away in the picturesque countryside of Oxfordshire, England and it’s giving us some serious Pride and Prejudice vibes.
The blush design of this elopement from ByChenai Events highlights the mansions stone architecture and surrounding landscape, which stretches as far as the eye can see. This is truly one amazing location to kick off your forever! Charlotte Wise Photography shot this inspiration beautifully, so see it all below and in the full gallery.
Kirtlington Park is a quintessential British Stately Home in the heart of Oxfordshire. In collaboration with Chenai from ByChenai Weddings & Events based in London, we set out to style a contemporary wedding day story against this backdrop. We included several locations, such as the historical bedrooms and a short boudoir/getting-ready shot. We then moved on to the first dress look of the day and took shots outside on the terrace and on the grand staircase.
With the beautiful views of the estate at the front of the house, we chose to style a wedding breakfast table on the front terrace. With a very delicate blush texture linen, supplied from Just 4 Linen, we layered elegant rose-pink chargers as well as gold cutlery and glass crockery to give the luxury feel, which were supplier by Duchess and Butler. We added the rose candelabras with extra-long ivory tapered dinner candles from Ester & Erik to give height to the table. We created 2 large floral urns arrangements to frame the setting. The table flowers were a divine mix of Japanese roses and perfumed British roses. The blush toned blooms included striated tulips, earthy toned eustomas and wild scabiosas. Foliage of fragrant geraniums and wild ivy as well as touches of fruit on the table added extra interest. Similar flowers were used in the bridal bouquet and in the boutonniere for our groom.
We wanted the cake to be simple and luxurious in texture. Clare, from Clare's Cakery created a buttercream 3-tier ruffled cake, which we then adorned with blush flowers. We then used a batch of dainty macarons made by Colline Bakes, in vanilla and berry flavours to compliment the display.
