Secret Garden Wedding Inspiration at Hornington Manor

“With a new adaptation due for a 2020 release, and to many a favourite childhood book of playful mystery, collaborators wanted to inspire brides alike. A styled bridal shoot that releases your inner (grown up) child, chic, sophisticated and mysterious. Set in the beautiful North Yorkshire venue – Hornington Manor was the perfect backdrop both grand, yet private and quaint in its appearance.”

“It was important to all suppliers involved to create and transform an already beautiful venue and use it to its full potential to show what amazing things could be done here for your own big day. We wanted brides to be like ‘wow I want to get married there!”

“Styled shoots are about releasing dreams and visions that brides didn’t know existed in themselves and making them achievable – it’s about being able to take inspiration from a set of images and using them as a whole or taking parts and ideas and turning them into a style that suits you and your other half.”

Bridal Design – Stephanie Moran Couture

“The inspiration behind the shoot ultimately came from the classic book itself, however we wanted to evoke both magic and mystery and recreate that childhood love feeling. The most important thing in the wedding industry to us as designers is about making brides feel confident and empowered on their wedding day – helping them be the perfect version of themselves. Everyone is different and unique and it’s so important to be the perfect you, whatever that may be!”

“For the shoot we used the new ‘Bespoke Bride’ collection, this is a creative concept in the boutique where we create your dress together. All the dress elements are deconstructed so you can move through the stages and add and take away any element you wish – sleeves, lace overlays and mix and match your bodices and skirts. Thus, meaning if you’re a bride that like the top of one dress and the bottom of another you can create your dream gown in store with us. Once your design is finalised we work our magic in the studio and turn it into your dress for your big day. The beauty of this is that it’s designed and fit to you. All the dresses in the shoot are made up of the separate elements of the ‘Bespoke Bride’ concept.”

Cake and Dessert Table – Where The Ribbon Ends

“Hornington manor is such a versatile venue! A courtyard ceremony, with the freedom to move into the gorgeous barn style reception. Where the ribbon ends, created a desserts table with a 3-tier wedding cake with a secret garden feel.”

“The table was full of intricate and personal details. Using seasonal fruits matched with greenery giving the table a foraged garden feel. Specs of gold and hand painted detail made each bite sized treat extra luxurious. The meringue nests and lemon tartlets popped with colour.”

“Imagine that moment when a brief drops into our inbox, where there’s a mention of a Secret Garden inspired shoot, at one of Yorkshires prettiest barn venues! With a truly epic team of wedding industry creatives it promised to be the perfect collaboration for us, where we could sprinkle fairy-tale styling in our signature style and that would fit the brief; we were ridiculously excited to be involved.”

“As we stepped into a world where we’d create mystery and magic with layers of gold, soft ivory, and flickering candle light. We imagined secluded spaces, delicate trailing foliage, English country summer blooms, fantastical tablescapes with exquisite detailing; we were smitten and completely love struck with the calm and spacious Hornington Barn venue…”

“Wedding design and styling is all about telling a story. It may be influenced by the venue, location, theme and colour schemes, but ultimately, it’s a love story. Daydreams, fairy-tale, love and romance, childhoods and futures together, are where we begin when creating personal wedding day details. It’s what we do with so much love. It’s a beautiful thing when the design captures the story and is woven into the fabric of the overall design. Every detail carefully considered, every element chosen to create beauty and all the feels.”

Florals – Fleuradamo Flowers

“The flowers for the Secret garden shoot at Hornington Manor had to be seasonal and British grown garden flowers. We have our own secret garden with a mixture of cottage garden flowers, herbs and roses. I love to have the fragrance of the old fashion roses with the lightness and movement of cottage flowers to encapsulate the moment. The flowers for this shoot, as with our weddings are cut the day before or even the morning so they are at their best.”

“Mixed with herbs and mixed greenery give a natural looking loose bouquet to compliment Stephanie’s individual dress designs. With a head turning floral crown of garden roses to compliment the look.”

“The mixed green runner which cascaded down the side of the table gives a fresh natural feel to the table display, mixed with candles gives a magical look.”
