Rustic wedding styling meets historical elegance with pretty purple details

Today I am thrilled to share this stunning shoot where rustic wedding styling meets historical elegance with pretty purple details at Browsholme Hall.

Images were captured by Jules Fortune Photography with the collaboration of a fabulous creative team.

Jules says of the shoot…


Lancashire wedding venue Browsholme is a privately owned Elizabethan house in the parish of Bowland Forest Low in the borough of Ribble Valley, Lancashire, England.

It is claimed to be the oldest surviving family home in Lancashire, and since 1954, it has been designated a Grade I listed building by English Heritage.

It is also one of the regions most historical wedding venues set in the most beautiful gardens, with acres of land and its own lake.


Last summer owners Amanda & Robert decided that they wanted extend their wedding ceremony area to the great outdoors including a beautiful lilypond and a woodland glade,  and also showcase their two existing indoor areas.

The drawing room has been home to wedding ceremonies since the venue starting holding weddings back in 2012, but with Micro Weddings making a big splash in 2020 and small gatherings becoming more popular it was time to highlight this area of the house and show off its utter beauty.

The aims were to showcase a ceremony in the drawing room, and  Amanda our celebrant designed a beautiful reading for or models Holly & Brad to recreate an atmosphere and vibe of a real ceremony.

I really wanted to showcase the artwork, and stunning original features of the room, so had ideas set for the chaise and the doorway.

The beautiful natural light from the windows is a must and was ideal for some relaxed natural portraits.

Next we moved into the Rustic Tithe Barn, which is generally where most of the larger wedding ceremonies are held.

Restored in 2010, this historic barn has been transformed into a unique new venue for weddings for up to 120 guests.

It comes with beautiful authentic features, such as exposed stone, oak beams and flagstone floors which create a unique atmosphere and a canvas for couple’s own creativity in decoration.

Rosie from Amore Styling dressed the room showcasing her beautiful glass candle stands, and Brides Little Helper supplied the green leaf arch, which was back lit to create a moody vibe.

The final area was the NEW Cart Shed, which has a beautiful cozy feel, ideal for micro wedding dining.

This historic space has been converted in this past year to create an intimate venue for small weddings and events.

Amore Styling & Brides Little Helper again dressed the room to enhance the warm colours of the brick walls with a splash of neon to create the mood.

A vintage rose table dressing looked elegant too as an addition to the rustic wedding styling and the overall look, but keeping with the relaxed feel.
