Photo shoot at the exquisite Waddesdon Manor


A few weeks ago we were delighted to be involved in the launch of a new wedding venue. A natural trust beauty, Waddesdon Manor has only recently opened their French chateau style doors for wedding ceremonies. This inspirational shoot was organised by The Bespoke Wedding Planner and incorporated fantastic team of suppliers.


The shoot featured gowns by two of our favourite designers Suzanne Neville and Jenny Packham. Savoy by Neville matches the grandeur of Waddesdon Manor, the scooped neck and ruched bodice beautifully flatter the waist line, whilst the full organza skirt is elegant and timeless in the right measure. The beautiful Leila by Packham proves that smaller column style dresses can provide just as much impact, and sit perfectly within the country house setting. Simply stunning, Leila’s gorgeous cap sleeves and hand sewn beading are ever so delicate, creating the perfect vintage gown.


A true gem nestled in the English Countryside, Waddesdon Manor is licensed to host wedding ceremonies for up to 60 guests in The White Room. For more information on this and other possibilities at the Manor and on the Waddesdon Estate generally visit their website.
