A stylish intimate wedding styled shoot at Brinsop Court

Today I am delighted to share this beautiful styled shoot to help visualise a stylish luxury, intimate wedding.

Images of the shoot were captured by Mel Chadd Photography working with a fabulous collaborative team.

Mel says of the shoot…


“It was really finding the gown that started my inspiration for this styled shoot but our aim was to create the idea of a small intimate wedding with a flare of luxury and style.”

“Following some emails and social media chat with Ian Stuart’s office I chose his “Antoinette” gown from the Revolution Rocks Collection as it is so beautiful and makes such a statement.”

“I knew that Herefordshire had some gorgeous venues, manor houses and country estates and I wanted a hidden gem that  could provide us with something special.”

“Whilst researching I came across Brinsop Court and fell in love with it, but that was nothing to what happened when I visited.”


“Nestled in this 800 acre estate is a medieval manor house that even on a wet Autumn day is still stunning.”

“Each room took my breath away with it’s history, decor and grandeur. I couldn’t help myself but to already be imagigining the imagery I could capture.”

“After that the search was on with Nikki from Recherche Weddings and Events to design the shoot around the gown and the venue.”

“We sourced many local and national wedding suppliers to be a part of the team.”

“Being able to showcase the talent, beauty and well crafted items is always a pleasure.”


“On the day of the shoot everyone was excited and looking forward to seeing it come together, myself included.”

“There was definitely an air of grace, lots of laughter and smiles during the day, how could there not be in such gorgeous surroundings.”

“It was incredible to be able to photograph and I want to give thanks to those who helped make the day.”
