If you haven’t yet heard about the new wedding venue at the stunning Mapperton House, then you’re in for an absolute treat! The Coach House at Mapperton House provides couples with an exceptional venue to host their wedding – with beautiful gardens, incredible photo opportunities and subtle elegance, this location delights from the moment you arrive. You’ll recognise the backdrop from the movie ‘Far from the Madding Crowd’ which was actually filmed on these grounds (I only mention this because I am a sucker for that sort of thing).

I was thrilled when I was asked to collaborate with the lovely Jenny from Eveleigh Events on a styled wedding shoot to showcase this world class venue in all it’s glory to potential brides. It was quite literally the warmest day, with sunshine streaming through the double glass doors drenching the hall in natural light – a photographers dream come true! Jenny and her team worked amazingly to bring the venue to life and I’m sure that potential brides seeing this post will be able to imagine the possibilities that could be created in this space. I can highly recommend Jenny to bring your dream for your wedding day to life, from decor to vintage prop hire, she is the warmest, lovelist woman and I can guarantee you will be in the best hands with her!

Tuscany has always been one of my wedding bucket list destinations, I think you’ll agree – from walking around the grounds that this is a very close second to shooting in Italy with the creamy stone coloured walls, the doorways and the beautiful flora all over the estate, should my husband ever decide to do a vowel renewal celebration that this location will be at the top of my list! Rest assured, I am working very hard on making that dream a reality!
