Built by Lawrence Washington in the mid-1500s, historic Sulgrave Manor was the perfect location for this autumnal wedding inspiration shoot by Ferri Photography.
“Much inspiration was taken from Sulgrave Manor and its rustic stone walls, vast wooden doors, and spectacular grounds,” explains Daniela Ferry from Ferri Photography. “Looking up above the main entrance to the Manor you can even find the Washington family’s coat of arms carved in the mullets and bars resembling stars and stripes – believed to have influenced the design of the American flag. How’s that for a history lesson!”
Fusing history and charm, Sulgrave Manor is popular among marrying couples for their wedding rehearsal and wedding breakfast. “With a beautiful orchard, a rose garden dating back to the late 15th century, and even a herb garden full of culinary and medicinal delights, we were spoiled for choice.”

The Whimsical Cakery created the three-tiered delight to complement the inspiration shoot.
Chloe from Bare Blooms created wild bouquets made from flowers that would typically be found in the Manor gardens. These included Hellebores, Ranunculus, and Fritillaria among others.
“Opting for yellows, soft peaches, and deep purples, the bride’s bouquet looked like it had burst into bloom after a long, lazy winter.”
Real couple Adelle and Phil tied the knot at the Manor just five months prior to Ferri Photography’s shoot.
“Despite the chill in the air, Phil couldn’t take his eyes off his bride.”
Model bride Adelle wore one of Enzoani’s new designs. “It’s ultra-romantic style with delicate spaghetti straps, crystal stones, an attention-grabbing low back, and intricate lace detail,” says Daniela.
Cherry Williams London provided the angelic bridesmaids’ dresses.
