Wedding Inspiration at Waddesdon


Ellie & the girls attend A LOT of events! The chances are if you’re here reading this blog, it’s because you’ve met us at an event and had a chat to us about what we do. We know that finding your dress can be a little daunting, so we think it’s so important to get out and about, meeting you all and demonstrating that we’re not as scary, we’re on your side!

Waddesdon is without a doubt one of our favourite venues! We look forward to working on their events with them. The Dairy, The Manor and The Five Arrows are all such stunning places to hold your wedding. Luxurious, indulgent and very very welcoming. Just like we aim to be!

We spotted these flowers at Waddesdon’s Showcase a few weeks ago (it’s hard to miss them) and we just love the bold, rich colours. Exotic flowers in the English countryside, who would have thought it would work so well? Have you seen the gold cutlery too? So cool!

For the couples who like to have options. We can’t decide which of these ceremony ares we like better. Maybe it would have to depend on the time of year? Although just imagine how gorgeous that view of the lake would be all covered in frost! Pop some blankets on the seat, it would absolutely amazing.
