Elmore Court Wedding, Gloucestershire| Brittany and Nick

Elegant Elmore Court Wedding

This beautiful Elmore Court wedding was the perfect combination of elegance and whimsy. Brittany and Nick echoed the restrained refinement of the historic venue with a muted colour scheme in neutral tones: the bridesmaids looked lovely in simple champagne silk slip-dresses, and the bouquets featured white roses and delicate, fluffy pampas-grass.

All of this allowed Brittany’s fabulous dress to really shine! She wore the most amazing gown covered in slips of white fabric sewn to look like a cascade of flowers. In all my years as a wedding photographer, I’ve never seen a dress quite like it.

Fresh Twists on Traditional Beauty

The reception was held on the grounds, at “The Gillyflower” – a specially-built reception venue on the estate. The crystal droplets hanging like rain from the ceiling are a modern twist on the classic chandelier, and that sense of renewing and refining the traditional and turning it into something fresh was a real touchstone of this Elmore Court wedding. You can see it in the way Nick and Brittany brought a modern simplicity to their traditional table settings, dressing the long tables with tall peach-coloured tapers for a striking look.

After the dinner, much of the party moved outside, where they were served pitchers of margarita and offered marshmallows to toast over bonfires on the lawn. This was a gorgeous moment, as the sun set over the fields and gardens and glowed over the wedding guests. We managed to slip away from the main group for a few more couple portraits in the golden light – and then it was back to the dance floor for a wild evening. The Gillyflower was built specially sound-proofed so that the dancing can go late – and let’s just say that I can see why!

This Elmore Court wedding was such an honour to capture. For more wedding inspiration, take a peek at Molly and Toby’s beautiful wedding in the Cotswolds!
