A misty day in the Oxfordshire countryside, created the setting for a very special Spring love story. As a Thorpe Manor Wedding Photographer, this venue is a dream to work at. A Luxury Country Manor House, Thorpe Manor has an abundance of character, with gorgeous interior design and a “make yourself at home” feeling to it – perfect for a wedding weekend in the country.
Thorpe Manor Wedding Photographer:
Our young couple chose Thorpe Manor for their intimate elopement, injecting their own contemporary style into the day. With pops of colour, an abundance of flowers, a show-stopper edible flower wedding cake, and their adorable French Bulldog, Franck joining in the celebrations, this was a day to remember. Moving away from a traditional country style wedding, the images below illustrate, just how versatile Thorpe Manor can be.
Luxury Wedding Photography at Thorpe Manor:
Maria looked gorgeous in a romantic Daughters of Simone wedding gown, before an outfit change for the evening reception – a must-have sequin knee length LBD by Needle & Thread, completing her playful, yet elegant bridal style perfectly. The outdoor ceremony setting used the beautiful iron-wrought gates at Thorpe Manor as backdrop, incorporating a monochrome element into the styling. This was carried through to the vibrant tablescape which contrasted beautifully with the manor’s Georgian exterior. Edible flower biscuits were the perfect wedding favours and guests loved the epic buttercream wedding cake, adorned with edible flowers.
Spring Equinox Wedding Inspiration:
In keeping with the Spring Equinox theme of their day, Sian Ryan Design created a wild floral installation on the staircase – a focal point as you enter the manor. Representing the emergence of the new Spring season, bright, vibrant flowers created an ‘aura’ type effect which added ‘wow-factor’ to the beautiful staircase. This wedding was styled to perfection and really showcased our couple’s bold personalities, while making the most of Thorpe Manor’s key features. Below are a few of my favourite images from the day, as featured on Rock My Wedding.
