I hand over to Hazel Parsons to tell you all about this rustic, countryside inspired Wedding Shoot.


“Tucked deep in the Cornish countryside lies the romantic and incredibly picturesque wedding venue, Pengenna Manor.”

“This was perfect location to bring together a very rustic, yet elegant countryside inspired wedding shoot.”

“With such a stunning location, a dedicated team of wedding pro’s on hand and styling guru Elle from Inspire Hire we knew the finished wedding set-up would look beautiful and truly inspiring for any bride-to-be.”

“For this styled shoot we wanted to bring the outside in and show it in it’s natural setting, shooting in a beautiful traditional lined marquee by Bodmin Marquee Hire and out on Pengenna’s marquee gardens overlooking the grounds.”


“Our stylist Elle wanted to incorporate some of the ambience and feelings that couples often want to create when planning a rustic wedding.”

“She used fabrics and textures, and even smells that reflect the beautiful rural setting of Pengenna.”

“She chose to incorporate some beautiful textures and fabrics into the table styling (in some cases lots of little details is what creates an impressive overall picture).”

“On the table Elle layered textures, starting with a muslin overlay to create a soft romantic and whimsical feel.”

“She then added to this is a lovely burlap runner which reflects the agricultural history of the venue.”

“For the table centre Elle chose a rustic whitewashed wooden box to display a rustic aged metal urn full of beautiful seasonal blooms designed by Elaine from Flowers from Bruallen with a very relaxed and wild feel as if they had just been plucked from the Manor gardens, complete with blackberries.”

“The table settings were layered and on the dinner plate sat a liberty print floral napkin which adds colour and pattern to the table, and on top of that a trio of beautiful vintage china.”

“Another texture is brought in with the use of the fabulous cork place card holders with sprigs of real fragrant lavender.”

“Dotted around the table Elle has used beautiful cut glass tea light holders which created a sparkly light, as well as little terracotta pots as a contrasting texture, which throw off a golden light like a mini bonfire!”


“The rustic style was carried through in the table plan, for which the wedding stationer Sarah used an old vintage suitcase, twine, brown postage card and fresh lavender.”

“Completing the look by stacking it on an old wooden crate to add height and texture.”

“When it came to the wedding cake we were looking for elegant simplicity with a touch of the outdoors, again layers played a big part in creating this look.”

“The cake table was dressed with a Hessian runner and a chunky wooden centrepiece was used as the cake-stand.”

“The design for the cake came from Suzi at Cupcakemama, she kept the colours, tones, smell and textures from the flowers, styling and stationery and incorporated them into her beautiful rustic wedding cake.”


“The overall look is very tactile, elegant, relaxed and rustic.”
