Bridal and Prejudice, as seen in Kent Bride Magazine


Romantic wedding style straight from the pages of Jane Austen

Bridal shoot at Goodnestone Park

My Wedding Professionals-41

Jane Austen was a frequent visitor to Goodnestone Park, home to her brother Edward in the early 19th century.  My Wedding Professionals team put together this beautiful bridal shoot at the estate that inspired many of the settings in her books.

Goodnestone Park is a quintessential English country house and gardens available for exclusive use.

A favourite place to stay for Jane Austen in the 19th century. We wanted to create a timeless, elegant and classic look for this shoot, showcasing these beautiful dresses in an equally impressive setting.
