How to style a country house wedding venue - with Bristol's Creative Collections

How to style a country house wedding venue - with Bristol's Creative Collections: Image 1 We asked Bristol's Creative Collections for their tips on styling a country house wedding venue...

This setting is perfect for a quintessentially English celebration. Start by deciding on a colour scheme and create your vision from this. Flowers are a must in this type of venue, and candles where possible make the perfect accessory.

Look around the house to see what features you can enhance, like a fireplace, mantelpiece or staircase. Use framed mirrors on easels dressed with blooms for seating plans and signage. For a personal, cost-effective touch, put out family photos in classic-style frames nestled in soft fabrics on a sideboard.

Line a sweeping staircase with candles and petals, and add a big arrangement at the foot of the stairs. To save the pennies, consider hiring artificial floral arrangements.Table centrepieces can be created in many different ways. Candelabra wrapped with green leafy hedgerow garlands look stunning. Glass vases filled with seasonal flowers are another way to add nature's colours into your English country wedding. Don't try to fill every little space just focus in and showcase certain details. Wooden signage and floral backdrops make great focal points, and bunting is another pretty yet inexpensive option.

Just remember, you chose the country house because it's already beautiful; you just want to enhance what's there.
