Todays wedding inspiration is a cracking celebration of when we at Honeysuckle & Castle have the pleasure of working with a group of extremely talented and inspirational East Midlands Wedding experts.

The results are a fun filled outdoor themed wedding x2…yes TWO gorgeous outdoor wedding looks that we have on offer here at Hardwick Hall filled with the most beautiful of wedding details and prettiness.

To begin, we start by sharing PART 1 of our photoshoot showcasing the diversity of this awesome wedding venue, Hardwick Hall, and what a magical setting can be created when working with the likes of Every Occasion Marques.

In brief: The captivating shots were produced by the delightful duo, Humpston and Bull. Their relaxed, creative style was exactly what we were looking for. The essence of the shoot was also captured in motion by the fabulously talented Jason Lynch.

Our bride looked exquisite in an ivory lace, statement keyhole back gown from Lori G. This gown made a dramatic impact with its contouring cutouts, puddle train and fine bead work. Then a little later in the day, our bride became a glamorous array of sparkle in a divine sequined gown beautifully handmade and designed by the talented Elizabeth Malcolm Bridalwear.

The brides hair looked perfect with loose pin curl waves, teamed with a soft smoky eye and pinched cheek blush by Lilly Monroes. The groom looked dashing in a bespoke suit from Brigdens.

THE MARQUEE : Opulent blush (with hints of sparkle) meets old school glamour.

The show stopping marquee by Every Occasion Marquees looked fantastic! Light and bright due the double aspect windows showing the superb panoramic views of the estate, the tent was classically styled to reflect the majestic opulence and grandeur of Hardwick Hall.

As soon as you walked in to the marquee, you were instantly aware of the glamorous and extravagant theme. Above, Fabric Theatre hung spectacular ribbons, drapes and ornate chandeliers that glistened and reflected the sun’s rays. With fun floral letters making a statement entrances from the fabulous In My life and large light up Love heart letters against the bar and a light up dance floor, the dazzling scene was set for a perfect wedding day.

Blush sequin table cloths by Wedding Event Design Studio shimmered and sparkled and created the perfect base for the rest of the decoration and styling.

To reflect the natural wildness of the estate, Avant Garden used moss, succulents, wild flowers and Avalanche roses to create breath-taking centre pieces. Incorporating them with bronze candelabras gave height as well as drama to the traditional round tables. They also added pearl drapes to the lime washed Chiavari chairs for a greater hint of extravagance too.

At each place setting, Executive Linen used complementary gold chargers and blush linen, on to which, Violet Skies Stationery then placed golden apples that were sensationally labelled with each guests’ name. Using one of their fabulous floral designs, they also created matching menus and a stunning seating plan to complement the overall look.

Finally, The Sugar Pod Cakery completed the scene with their delicious and understated tiered white chocolate & raspberry cake. Delicately decorated with handmade flowers and brooches, it was perfectly accompanied with an array of pastel candy pops, scrumptious mini tired biscuit cakes and bite size muffins.

Overall, this photo-shoot really was: Majestic. Magnificent. Magical.
