“It was important to complement the stately hall and include aspects that captured the luxurious setting and surrounds,” says stylist Susie Young of Knot & Pop. “We drew on the concept of the muse, and how people and places can inspire creativity.”
The beautiful pergola, in the hall’s celebrated gardens, was transformed into a ceremony space with plenty of blooms and greenery. “Jo Flowers worked DOO PDQQHU RI ÁRZHUV DQG IROLDJH LQWR WKH VWUXFWXUH to create the perfect frame for the vows,” says Susie.
Inside the dramatic glass-roofed Orangery, an opulent feel was created through carefully curated décor. “This magical place is the perfect backdrop for the wedding feast,” says Susie. “Cut glass was mixed with gold cutlery and hand-dyed napkins by Silk & Willow.” Flickering candles brought romance.
