The Orangery

The Orangery

We have such a treat for you today, a stunning photo shoot featuring some of the best in the wedding business. With The Orangery at Settrington providing the backdrop for the beautiful bridal dresses from The Little Pearl Bridal Boutique along with fabulous flowers, styling, accessories and more you're sure to be inspired!

Behind the scenes - The concept of the shoot came from my love of botanical's and how this styling framed the elegance and classic nature of a new designer I had brought into the boutique, Rosa Clara.  Their clean lines and unique fabrics shot against the backdrop of the beautiful Orangery at Settrington, then framed with dramatic foliage really brought these gowns to life.  Alongside the botanical theme we brought in monochromes and metallics through the dessert table, stationary and table styling. Geometric shaping was introduced through the stationary and name settings to add a modern touch, with sequins and soft candle light bringing in the glamour!  Catherine Elizabeth and her team styled our models perfectly with strong shimmery eyes and lips that just popped with colour!  The hair had a vintage glamour feel, with hair accessories from The Bobby Pin complementing different dress details, from on trend rose gold hair vines to feathered combs. The floral creations from Minnie Bees were a focal point for the shoot, with a unique take on a floral wall using stacked wooden crates and a hanging textured floral carpet!

The Orangery at Settrington is an exclusive wedding venue, situated on the outskirts of Malton, North Yorkshire and a venue I have longed to get inside of to create something beautiful! We were kindly given free use of the venue to show how different areas of this stunning venue can be captured on your big day. The fact that you have the Orangery exclusively to yourself on your wedding day just tops it off for me. You can be as creative as you like and the team are so lovely and accommodating.
