Park House Hotel and Spa, Midhurst, is a luxury country-house venue that hosts intimate, exclusive-use weddings in its barn and across the extensive grounds. “We were inspired by its walled garden and immaculate lawns,” says shoot coordinator Giulia O’Lorey of Cakes in Bloom. The plan was to highlight the beauty of Sussex while showcasing a wealth of talented local suppliers. “We were also mindful of the pandemic and were eager to show how a smaller romantic wedding can still be breathtaking,” Giulia explains. “For many modern couples highlighting important aspects of their relationship and personality is just as important as the stylistic impact of it, so it’s of paramount importance that their wedding day reflect that,” she adds. With all of this in mind, the collaborators were brought together to demonstrate how their flexible and first-class services can be personalised for each one-of-a-kind celebration. This is beautifully reflected everywhere you look from the embroidery on the veil to the custom invitations; the ethically-handmade couture gown to the seasonal sweetpea and wildflower forals.
