A styled shoot showing the beautiful Eshott Hall in all its glory today, and trust us – it really is a beauty! After visiting here last year we were awed by the outdoor spaces, the serene vibe and the amazing interior, it’s grand in all the right places and it makes you feel a world away from home! This English Country house is the perfect wedding venue; you can find out more about it over on our venues page. We catch up with the team behind the shoot to hear all about this wedding inspiration at Eshott Hall…
“We created this shoot ‘In a Class of its Own’ as we wanted to show off this beautiful venue’s outdoor spaces, which really come into their own with the blossoming of the hotel’s established wisteria climber which adorns the Hall’s façade during May, heralding the start of those long summer days.”
“There are many beautiful country house venues but few with such a stunning range of outdoor spaces, that can be found at Eshott. As well as the Hall’s lovely walled gardens, there is the Victorian Fernery with its wrought iron gazebo against a backdrop of a lush ferns and mosses on the rockery, with sensational rhododendrons in magenta shades wrapped around by ancient trees; or the whimsical woodland, with its tree bark aisle and sunlit glade, offering nature lovers a wild space for their wedding vows.”
“Influences also included the timeless air which pervades this pretty Georgian house; and also its ambience which whilst being elegant and well bred, is also somewhat barefoot and bohemian at the same time, it’s a venue that really encourages you to relax and have fun in this wonderfully sensual and indulgent setting.”
“The afghan hound reflects that the venue is relaxed and dog friendly. The colour palette of the wisteria and delicate flowers, also influenced some props and sensual styling, which included rose and violet creams, fine bone china, amethyst geodes and sheepskin rugs. The styling was languid and sensual, high-spirited and playful, harking back to the hedonistic lifestyle of the gentry at the beginning of the C20th century and the English country house ‘weekend’.”
“Eshott Hall, near Morpeth, which remarkably is only a few minutes’ drive from the A1. Near but far, the hotel seems like another world. Each season is truly magical here at Eshott Hall, especially in the summertime, the House comes into its own, with its botanical signature…. cascades of lilac wisteria, tumbling down its honey stone walls, make it perhaps one of the most photogenic country house venues in the North.”
“The heady fragrance of English garden roses contributes to the sensual delight of this garden. Beyond the immaculate, striped lawns and walled kitchen garden is a Victorian fernery, with its wrought iron gazebo, with ancient woodlands wrapped around it, carpeted by lush magenta rhododendrons.”
“The chaise longue room scene particularly captures those perfect summer days, with the lace-delicate white wisteria backdrop, enhanced with a vintage collection of amethyst crystals, cut glass and decorative china, in hues inspired by the garden’s blooms in delicate ivory, dusty pink, purple, lime and dark green tones. Sensual textures of velvet and sheepskin add to the opulence.”
“Hanging hoops bedecked with delphiniums and lilac Limonium, with other flowers too from the wild flower selection decorate the rattan seat pod beneath the cypress tree, continue the colour palette, whilst symbolising eternity and lasting love.”
“Wizz, the unashamedly regal Afghan hound stole the show, displaying impeccable manners throughout the shoot, he was very much at home in this elegant setting. Later in the day, we gravitate to the library, with its gentleman’s club ambience, antique leather chairs, burgundy red décor and decorative open fireplace.”
“The intimate nature of the house, with only eleven bedrooms in the main hall, and four bedrooms within the self-catering cottages, three new stable bedrooms, and a further six bedrooms in The Grange, makes it an ideal size to host an ‘exclusive use’ country house wedding. Family and friends can enjoy the charms of this venue and its idyllic surroundings to create their own lasting memories.”
