When only the best is good enough

Romantic wedding style straight from the pages of Jane Austen


Bridal shoot at Goodnestone Park


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.

Erica by Rebecca Ingram is made of Reena mikado and features box pleats, pockets and a high-low ballgown skirt. (Also available in full-length). A delicate bow adds a touch of whimsy to this romantic style, £810.



Maggie Sottero’s Imani features embroidered lace with pearl and crystals, a sheer, boho bodice and illusion back. The romantic Revina chiffon gives the perfect amount of drama combined with relaxed elegance, £1355.


Fabienne by Maggie Sottero is a whimsical yet sophisticated gown with intricate beading on sheer tulle along the waist and side panels – a modeern twist on a vintage-inspired design, £1360


Jayleen by Maggie Sottero has a banteau neckline and straps. The bodice is accentuated with beaded-lace motifs and a soft, sheer, scoop back. The Aldora crepe fit and flare skirt has tulle and lace godets on the sides and back, £1185.


Stella York’s Anika (style 6404) is a lace and crepe dress that creates a flattering, slim and sophisticated column silhouette. Graphic lace starts on the neckline to highlight the collar bone, traces down the bodice and hits the hips in all the right places, £1099.


Annabelle by Maggie Sottero is made of Tuscan organza and has a jewelled neckline and sheer back. Lace motifs trail from head to toe with soft shimmer, £1120.
