"Bringing together so many talented companies in this historic location enabled us to create a fantastic series of images that we can all be proud of." Blenheim Palace is one of the most stately residences available in the UK for weddings, boasting exquisite architecture and over 90 acres of beautiful gardens. Recently, the palace hosted its very first luxury wedding supplier shoot, featuring some of the best award-winning suppliers in the country, all organised by luxury wedding and event planning consultancy Cranberry Blue.
The photographs were taken by John Nassari, named by The Evening Standard in 2016 as one of London's top wedding photographers. They perfectly capture the grandeur of this incredible venue.
Dress designers, Browns Bride, selected the elegant wedding gown for the shoot and remain a firm favourite in the fashion industry, seen here next to suits provided by exclusive tailors, Stephen Bishop Suiting.
The luxury London based florist, Wildabout, proved why they are the Chelsea in Bloom Gold medallist, whilst the leading wedding cake designer, and preferred supplier to London hotels such as The Dorchester, Claridge's, The Savoy and The Ritz, Rosalind Miller Cakes, also took part.
Event lighting was provided by The Events Company, whilst Intricate Creations showed their bespoke laser-cut wedding stationary.
"The grandeur of the Palace and its grounds are quite simply breath-taking," says Director of Cranberry Blue, Melanie Helen. " It makes the perfect setting for a luxury photoshoot." To complete the photoshoot, models were kindly offered by Gingersnap and Mosaic Models, with the beautiful hair and make up created by Hepburn Collection and Mariam Jensen. Furniture and table settings were provided with the teamwork of Great Hire, 88 Events and Options.
Blenheim Palace were absolutely delighted to be approached by Cranberry Blue to be the chosen venue for their luxury wedding photoshoot. "It's the first time we have staged this type of event," says Emma Rogers, Sales and Events Manager for Blenheim Palace, "and it demonstrates the huge increase in popularity of unique heritage venues like ours to host luxury weddings."
"Wedding enquiries from across the world have risen significantly in recent years and we are getting more and more interest from clients looking for somewhere truly exceptional as the location for one of the happiest and most important days of their lives," she added. "Being able to recommend such an excellent variety of trusted, esteemed suppliers is fantastic." We're certain all the suppliers are looking forward to working together again in producing more beautiful weddings at Blenheim Palace.
