"A contemporary palette of nude, peachy tones, set against fresh white linens and a pop of dark greenery"

With a dreamy soft colour palette and an opulent backdrop, this romantic regal wedding in Bath is giving us all the feels. Set at the iconic Royal Cresent Hotel which featured in the hit series 'Bridgerton' it definitely has the wow factor when it comes to wedding venue magic! It's full of beautiful details and is perfect if you're looking for a luxury vibe on your wedding day. The team behind it shares their inspiration and gives their wedding planning tips too...

"The Royal Crescent is an iconic location in Bath, having featured in the global sensation that is Bridgerton, as well as many other period dramas. At the centre of the crescent sits The Royal Crescent Hotel - an exceptional example of Regency architecture, with grand, formal interiors. The idea behind this shoot was to create a wedding concept that complemented, yet contrasted the formal, linear quality of the Regency interior with a chic, contemporary and softer scheme, fit for a modern wedding." "The styling for this shoot was based in tradition – but we gave it a distinctly contemporary twist. We wanted the look to complement and work with the interiors, yet offer a fresh, youthful and more relaxed aesthetic. From the stunning gown to the tumbling floral arrangements and generous sharing platters – we aimed to combine the sense of luxury, opulence and romanticism of the Regency period, with contemporary designs, materials and modern ways of celebrating. This approach would work well for any couple thinking of getting married in a historic venue. It’s an opportunity to put your own modern spin on a historic venue, which is personal and authentic."

"Flowers for me are the backbone of your wedding, they are such a huge part of the day and can make any wedding WOW, instantly"

The Dress “I knew we need a real statement dress, not only one that was perfect for the theme but also for our model. Ellie loved wearing this black crape dress with statement fringed sleeves, she said it was something she would definitely choose for her big day. This incredible design is from Shikoba”

Hair and Makeup “I am a huge Stevie Nicks fan and she was my inspiration for Ellie's hair and makeup. Charlotte created an impactful smokey eye that Stevie herself would have been proud of and teamed it with a neutral lip and flawless skin.”

The Details “Choose your flowers based on your colour scheme and vibe of your wedding. Dried flowers look beautiful at a boho-themed wedding and fresh flowers really suit grand weddings. When it comes to stationery there are so many different styles you can choose from. Choose an artist and a style that will tie your whole wedding day together. The invites can give your guests a sneak peek of what to expect of your theme” “When choosing your videographer you really want to get on with them as much as your photographer as they will be by your side for the whole day too. Look at their work and at how they tell a story. Make sure you love them as a person and their style”


Unique, relaxed, modern, colourful and abstract whilst being mindful to reduce its environmental and social impact. This team wanted to show that sustainability is about an approach rather than simply a natural, earthy, 'green' vibe. We catch up with the team to hear more... "It tells the story of a couple who want their day to be fun, family and friend focused, and reminiscent of their quirky and lively personalities. We wanted to promote diversity and representation within weddings, choosing to have a pregnant bride and an inclusive wedding party." "One of the key hopes from this shoot was to show that to have a sustainable wedding it doesn't have to be 'green', rustic, or earthy. You can embrace your own style, your own personality, and go as big and bold as you wish, because sustainability is about the approach you take and the decisions you make, not the finished look."

"A Bold and unapologetic Colour; exactly what we need for 2022”

The Embroidered Napkin Company

Styling When it comes to styling your very peri purple wedding, there are lots of different options out there. This has lots of layers and is bold and unapologetic, exactly what we need for 2022, and exactly what you should be for your wedding day! If you’re looking to make a statement then choose the more neon tone of this colour and go bright! For a spring-summer wedding, use bright violet purples against lilac tones. For a more autumn winter vibe, use deeper shades and smouldering tones. It’s definitely a colour that can fit into many themes. Here are just a few ideas of how you could include it in your styling for the big day.

Sienna Mail Invitations

Stationery Your stationery is the first thing your guests will see so make it stand out, using your wedding colours as the focus. This is an opportunity to really mix the tones of this Pantone colour; pick out the dark and light tones and use them to create a seamless wedding invitation. Use bright purple for a vibrant look and feel, or muted tones if you’re going for a more classic luxurious look. We love these designs, and they truly show the scope you can have when it comes to using these colours and moulding them to your theme.

Table Arrangements You might not necessarily think of table arrangements as being installations but they absolutely can be. This is a great option for anyone but especially for those of you whose venue might not allow for larger hanging installations. Table arrangements can be long and dramatic or small and compact. Either way, they add a stunning stylish vibe to your wedding decor and are much easier to transport, reuse and repurpose either on your wedding day itself or afterward.

Bowl Arrangements

Bowl arrangements come in all shapes and sizes and can be created in so many variations and styles. You might not think of bowls as being a floral installation but they can be pieces of art. This is a really great option if you are a fan of minimalistic decor and floral arrangements. You can find florists and designers who specialise in creating more minimalistic designs. You can also find inspiration on this from Japanese Ikebana.

There are so many options for floral installations and arrangements and the choice comes down to what you are inspired by and you love. Always make sure you ask your venue if they have any restrictions on hanging etc (it is a good idea to do this when you visit and choose a venue if you have an installation in mind). Whatever type of flowers you go for there are lots of the above options that work really well for each.
