Blushing Bride: Styled Wedding Photo Shoot at Notley Abbey

Notley Abbey featured as the perfect backdrop to ‘Blushing Bride’, an elegantly styled wedding shoot, with an ethereal feel throughout.

The Blushing Bride styled wedding shoot was captured at Notley Abbey, an exclusive use wedding venue in Buckinghamshire

Our historic wedding venue in Buckinghamshire, Notley Abbey, recently played host to an uber romantic styled photo shoot based around a blushing bride, her new husband and her gorgeously rustic wedding style. 

Blushing Bride, the brainchild and collaboration between fine art wedding photographer Emma Pilkington and Sundari Ferris from The Wedding Stylist resulted in a magnificent masterpiece featuring a soft, feminine and very ethereal feel from start to finish. 

It was an honour to have Notley Abbey feature as the perfect backdrop to the styled shoot and we just love how Emma, Sundari and the whole team behind the ‘Blushing Bride’ styled shoot created and captured such stunning details; from getting ready in the bridal suite to exquisite floral displays by Joanne Truby in the barn-style Monks’ Refectory. 

A subtle, elegant colour scheme was used throughout, including a touch of ‘something blue’ displayed on a reception table set up. Looking through the image gallery should hopefully inspire future wedding couples in terms of venue choice and offer an insight to how you can style your own special day, by either hiring a wedding designer, an expert stylist or by simply pulling your own ideas together depending on how creative you are. 

We Love:  

  • The simple white wedding cake made to look rustic with single garland of greenery 
  • Mix-match crockery
  • Individual buttonholes
  • The plunging V at the back of the bride’s wedding dress 
  • The cool, summery linen suit worn by the groom 
  • The unique, feather-inspired hair band worn by the bride 
  • LIght, summery colour combinations featured in all of the floral displays 
  • An over-sized bridal bouquet
  • A different style of chair for each reception guest 
  • The rustic stone walls of Notley Abbey’s Monks’ Refectory

Notley Abbey can be adapted to suit most wedding themes – we’ve seen them all over the years – but if you come and visit the venue in person, you’ll realise how its natural beauty and elegance can make your day so brilliantly special in every way.
