Alfresco Wedding Inspiration

The Venue

Set in the glorious picturesque Devonshire countryside, with the River Exe meandering through the grounds, Bickleigh Castle exemplifies a fairy tale castle setting.

The Colour Palette

The shoot comprises a soft colour palette of greens, whites and blues with floral design and little touches of luxury which is in keeping with the grandeur of the setting.

Alfresco Setting

The Alfresco setting on the lawn, replicated the lush green countryside setting, with crystal glassware, long tapered candles and gold cutlery for that elegant and luxurious feel.

Hand-painted Stationery

The hand-painted illustrated wedding stationery beautifully captures the romantic castle setting.

The Bridal Look

The bride wears a beautiful Kate Walker bridal dress that oozes elegance and looks perfectly at home in the grand surroundings. Her hair is worn in a chunky fishtail to bring a modern laid back feel. But can be easily pinned up to bring a bit of evening sophistication.

The Bridesmaids

The bridesmaids complement the look with their blue dresses and bouquets of white blooms.

This shoot, without a doubt, is a dreamlike wedding inspiration in a fairy tale venue, heady with romance.
