Intriguing, exclusive, timeless - The Grange at Northington in the Hampshire countryside is a remarkable venue. Owned by the Baring family, the Grade 1 listed building is one of the finest examples of Greek Revival architecture in Europe. First built in the 1660, the house was saved from demolition in 1975 when it was given protection by English Heritage. It is now home to an annual opera festival and occasional location for film or fashion shoots, most notably in recent times, the collaboration between Erdem and H&M.
It is also available as a wedding venue and in December 2018 we were delighted to be part of a chic and contemporary wedding inspiration shoot co-ordinated and styled by the creative team, What Peggy Did Next, capturing the beauty of The Grange's decadent architecture and its versatility as a venue for relaxed but luxurious nuptials. Enough words... its time to let Angela Ward Brown's incredible images do the talking.
The vision for the couple was clean, understated luxury with unusual, art-inspired details. We supplied our 'Tiny Fern' combs and headband from the Garden of Earthly Delights collection, as well as a custom-made raised headband using the same Tiny Fern elements, which co-ordinated wonderfully with Still Life Flowers' bracken garland above the table.
You can read more about this stylish shoot here on Love My Dress, which gives all the details of the talented suppliers involved.
We will be back at The Grange on Sunday 7th April as it plays host to the next edition of The Bridal Bazaar. This is the first time the venue has opened its doors for a wedding event and so, if you are close enough to pay a visit, we urge you to take this rare opportunity to see inside this incredible place.
At the Bridal Bazaar you will be taken on a journey of ideas for each part of your wedding day. We will be there with talented hair and make up artist Carolanne Armstrong to show you a range of headpieces and accessories from all our different collections. Carolanne will be doing mini-styling sessions to give you ideas as to how you might style and adorn your hair for your wedding.
