Bride standing holding bouquet at Pengenna Manor

This beautiful bohemian inspired wedding shoot, photographed by Nick Walker Photography, took place at the stunning 500 year old Pengenna Manor, a picturesque wedding venue set deep in the Cornish countryside.

The team behind the shoot wanted to go all out with the Moorish feel, and create a vibe that was relaxed, warm and elegant, which would tie in with the LPM Bohemia tent. Wedding styling guru Elle from Inspire Hire describes how she created the bohemian look…

“The low table and cushion seating area immediately created a certain type of exotic atmosphere, and the painted lining to the marquee was an astonishingly beautiful and unusual backdrop.

“I decorated the table using the jewel colours inspired by the souks of Marrakesh and bedouin tents. The cerise, purple and red are warm and luxurious, and punctuated with the aqua coloured water glasses and green jewelled votives the colours come alive. I used sheer layered fabrics on the table combined with lots and lots of opulent metallic and gem stone encrusted votives and lanterns. Elegant Persian rugs adorned the floor of the marquee, to add to the textural exotic atmosphere.

“The sparkling candlelight was abundant, and Elaine from Flowers from Bruallen created exotic and brightly coloured low, floral arrangements to complement the colours used on the table; the pops of yellow and orange really bring the scheme to life.

How did More Weddings come about and how long has the business been going?

More Weddings was born relatively recently, in February this year, and is the new baby of its parent company More Production. More Production has been producing high end events for corporate and private parties for over 15 years. We decided to launch More Weddings due to an influx in requests from brides and grooms for us to decorate their weddings, and realised that we needed a dedicated platform to make it easier for our customers to understand what we can offer for their wedding.

Have you always been interested in weddings and wanted to be a wedding stylist?

Who doesn’t love a good wedding!? I wouldn’t say I have always wanted to be a wedding stylist; I don’t think I ever knew what I wanted to be, I just knew I was good at organising things and being imaginative. Who knew there was a job out there to combine these skills! It’s a wonderful feeling to watch an idea grow and seeing it look amazing when it’s finished.

Do you have a background in styling and design?

My personal background is in media production and marketing, so I have always been very creative, and I love any opportunity to make something pretty!

All of our team are very creative people and we even make a lot of our props and furniture in-house.

Couple next to red Vespa

So, you have just got married and want some really cool after wedding pictures… where is the best place to go? What do you need? How about going to Paris with a really cute, bright red Vespa? We LOVE it! Paris is such an amazing place for pictures as it offers such charm and rustic settings. This couple did not want to have traditional pictures in Paris with the Eiffel Tower; instead they chose fun, quirky locations for their amazing pictures, taken by Esther and Gabe. So simple yet so charming.

“The young couple organised a genuine multicultural wedding; Amélie was born in Paris while Attila was born in Budapest. They both love the little red Italian Vespa, so they organized their wedding around traveling and motorcycle riding. Amélie was insistent on a couple of things, one was that the pictures in Paris of the bride and groom (bride and groom session) be done without the Eiffel Tower, while the other was that the wedding itself be in Budapest.”

We adore floral bridal crowns, not only ones made of summer blooms but also floral crowns for winter weddings. Imagine walking down the aisle wearing a beautiful, romantic floral crown to wow your new groom, and of course your wedding guests too.

When designing a floral crown it’s always best to choose flowers that are already being used in your wedding bouquet and other floral displays, so they complement each other. Speak to your florist about the style of your dress so they can help you create something perfect for you – you don’t want a beautiful dress with lots of detail and then a huge floral crown to detract from the detail.

We have found some stunning floral crowns that are perfect for winter weddings; from bright red luscious berries, to subtle pine cones and foliage.
