A Luxe, warm, foliage rich winter wedding styled shoot at Burley Manor Barn

Today I am thrilled to share this Luxe, warm, foliage rich winter wedding styled shoot at Burley Manor Barn.

All images were beautifully captured by Az Rehman of Lemontree Photography.

MUA Frances Moore shares the inspiration behind this gorgeous shoot…


The inspiration

“The overall theme for the styled shoot came to me almost immediately.”

“When I think of Burley Manor Barn, especially at this time of year, I think of the warmth the barn exudes. ”

“The way the candles reflect in that space, the beautiful colour of the beams and that fireplace.”

“I just wanted to capture that capsule of inviting warmth, so a winter wedding styled shoot was a must.”

The Venue

“I have been wanting to do a styled shoot at Burley Manor Barn ever since it was newly renovated earlier last year.”

“It’s that lovely combination of slightly rustic, a little modern but with oodles of vintage charm – I knew it would photograph beautifully.”

” Burley Manor Barn is slightly set back from the main hotel, Burley Manor, and is located in a wonderful part of the New Forest.”

“The venue offers so many photographic opportunities, being practically in the middle of a forest setting – which is just perfect for weddings.”

Colour inspiration

“From the location of Burley Manor Barn, set in the New Forest, we gained our colour palette.  Green was to dominate.”

“Joey from the Wild Fox florist slowly introduced the purest golds, creams and whites which gave the entire look the old world opulence and angelic tone to compliment the bride.”

“We kept an element of vintage charm by using lace chair covers, along with simple stylish table names designed and provided by Fundoo Weddings.”


Gown, accessories, and hair & makeup 

“Both of the 2017 Victoria Kay collection wedding gowns were sourced from Something Old Something New bridal boutique, along with select hair accessories.”

“The painterly watercolour effect gown served perfectly to complement the grand country venue and brimming foliage features for decor and bouquet.”

“The chic up-do hair design came from Michelle Crosser of Bridal Hair in Hampshire, with soft and rosy makeup created by me (Frances Moore MUA).”

The Cakes/Dessert Table

“The centre piece of the shoot and extraordinary dessert table’s inspiration came solely from the fiercely rich season itself and the indulgence it brings.”

“With this gluttonous yet elegant vision in mind, Hayley from Sweetcheeks Bakehouse made a table of pure heaven!”

“From a large 3 tier decadent cake to iced biscuits, macaron lollipops – even handmade sugar- dusted marshmallows!”

What bride?

“The style of the shoot was aimed at inspiring the fashion forward, yet classic bride with a love for the country glamour of this stunning Manor.”

“As a collective of passionate suppliers we wanted to show couples that local needn’t constrain style or possibility.”


Thank you to Frances, Lemontree Photography and the collaborative team for sharing this winter wedding styled shoot.

Isn’t it lovely, such a warm comforting glow that welcomes you in from the cold with such pretty styling.
