Kings Weston House is a Georgian grade I listed building, built between 1712-1719 and was designed by Sir John Vanbrugh (best known as the designer of Blenheim Palace).
The theme in grey, dusky pink and ivory with hints of lace compliments the colours in the house, particularly the Vanbrugh room (wedding breakfast room).
The styling shoot at Kings Weston House took place at the beginning of August, another lovely day for a photo shoot!
The Portrait Gallery was simply decorated as the room speaks for itself, with lovely limewash chiavari chairs with dusky pink ribbon ties tied on the chairs by the aisle. Megan Lily Flowers created a lovely floral design for the registrars table. The chairs at the front by the aisle were defined with 2 floral ties with dusky pink ribbon.
The cake by Cakesmiths sat perfectly in the wallpapered Oak room in front of a gold ornate mirror. A beautiful backdrop for photos.
The Vanbrugh room was decorated with an ivory candelabra centrepiece with flowers by Megan Lily Flowers. Silver speckled tea lights and dusky pink petals scattered on the table lined with a bespoke grey runner. I designed handmade menu cards, table number and place names to match with the theme. The cake in a jar favours per setting by the Cakesmiths, these wrapped with lace. The all important finishing touch was by wrapping a pop of dusky pink coloured ribbon around each napkin.
We strung white paper lanterns up with dusky pink and grey ribbon and lace to hang in the Staircase room, and lit the grand staircase with silver lanterns with candles. These added that contrast against the dark wood.
