The Kedleston Country House is a gorgeous Derby wedding venue with a relaxed vibe and perfect surroundings for wedding photographs. With the wedding management recently taken over by Honeysuckle and Castle, we thought it was a perfect occasion to put on a Styled Wedding Shoot and really show what the Kedleston Country House was made of!
Kedleston Country House Wedding Inspiration Shoot:
On a wet and windy day in May 2019, a group of some of Derby’s finest wedding suppliers (see list above) collaborated to put together an inspirational shoot demonstrating ideas for your wedding day. The Kedleston Country House, is steeped in British history. Once a former coaching house for the Kedleston Estate, it was an ideal location for this shoot, particularly with its Georgian architecture and Derbyshire countryside views from the Orangery. Even though the weather wasn’t at all favourable unfortunately, you can see the light that still pours into the venue. It really is a sensational space in which to gather your guests and celebrate your wedding in Derby.
As a Kedleston Country House wedding photographer, I am lucky to have photographed at this local wedding venue on a number of occasions now. It is a venue that lends itself to being transformed around a couples’ own unique style whist retaining its classical elegance and charm. Read on for my Special offer for YOUR wedding day at The Kedleston!
On this example inspiration wedding day, Emily from Sass Weddings created a contemporary yet rustic look, with delicate hand pressed florals and a modern relaxed approach to the classic wedding tablescape. Essentially Floral created the stunning flowers for the day, with a white anemone with a blue-black velvety centre as its focal flower. Soft, delicate blossoms were contrasted against accents of foraged nature; antlers, wood and naked branches. The wedding cake by Emma at Hello Cake was perfectly monochrome with its soft greys and elegant floral feature. Our model for the day was dressed in two stunning gowns, provided by Lori G Bridalwear and shoes by Rachel Simpson Shoes. The first gown was a figure-hugging lace piece, layering ivory over champagne to add subtle movement in the colour. The second gown, another beautifully delicate lace number had a cap sleeve for modern elegance and a romantic silhouette. Myself, Indigo and Violet, as the wedding photographer, I wanted to demonstrate the intrigue in the venue and of course the abundance of light and airiness, even despite the gloomy weather we had outside. You can create your very own relaxed haven on your wedding day at Kedleston Country House, even if you cannot use the outside space.
