A Bridgerton-Inspired Dream: Katie and Sam’s Chic Hedsor House Wedding

Sat within the rolling hills of the English countryside, Hedsor House was the breathtaking backdrop for Katie and Sam’s destination wedding. Traveling all the way from America with their closest friends and family, the couple chose this grand Georgian house for its timeless elegance and quintessentially British charm—a perfect setting for a wedding inspired by the regal aesthetics of the popular Bridgerton series which everyone is obsessed with… including me!

A Venue Steeped in History

Hedsor House, with its long driveways filled with rhododendrons and manicured gardens, really sold the dream to Katie and Sam when they were trying to choose a venue to hold their wedding day. Especially the opulent ballrooms and stately looking rooms which would give them the brigerton charm for the British vibe mixed with placing their chic spin on the styling of the wedding day. The house’s rich history and architecture provided the perfect canvas for a wedding that was both luxurious and intimate. Every corner of Hedsor House, from its lavish ballroom to the intimate library, offered a stunning backdrop for capturing unforgettable moments. Having recently been re-decorated in the rooms for guests to stay as well as the bridal suite- this was the first time being back at Hedsor since the makeover and it did not disappoint.

Chic and Editorial: The theme for the day

Katie and Sam alongside Dale Alexander chose a sophisticated blend of pure white and deep black, creating a striking and timeless statement. This chic editorial style was evident in every detail, from Katie’s elegant wedding gown which was a two piece that show could take off the overskirt to the black-tie attire of the groomsmen. Black bows were on the tables, each one hand-embroidered with the names of the guests—a personal and luxurious touch that added to the wedding’s bespoke feel. With the bows also blending into the cake with a simple ice three tier cake and a elegant bow. These elements combined to create an atmosphere that was both classic and contemporary, blending the old-world charm of Hedsor House with modern elegance. For the ceremony florals from Seventh Heaven were on pedestals and vases with the stunning white/cream and green theme. Inspired by the lush gardens of Hedsor House and a slight nod to the Bridgerton series, were a key feature of the wedding decor. Dale Alexander who was Katie and Sam’s wedding planner throughout, worked closely with the couple and helped pick suppliers since they were overseas, with everything adding a touch of whimsy and romance to the day.
