Gilded Glamour at Prestwold Hall

This beautiful shoot by Louise Beukes at shows
how super-soft blush and gold can add a modern feel to a classic interior

Luscious blush… We love it, in all its many glorious shades. The trend for soft blush pinks continues because savvy brides know it’s a subtle yet stylish shade that really does suit every season.

“The colour palette here takes the lead from the elegant décor of the Drawing Room at Prestwold Hall, with its buttery yellow walls and blush pink curtains,” says Louise Beaukes of “You can never go wrong with blush – it’s romantic, timeless and oh-so perfect for weddings. To bring this classic look up to date, I played with colour and texture, including pops of contemporary mustard.”

On the table the tea-stained roses are paired with classic English garden florals in an asymmetrical arrangement. The mustard, blush and rust shades are complemented by coloured glassware and linens, along with minimalist bespoke stationery and stunning ice chairs. Then splashes of mustard yellow silk ribbon, on the bouquet and in the groom’s bowtie, pull the whole look together. “To recreate this theme, find a venue with an elegant neutral palette,” says Louise. “Then you can add pops of colour and texture to create your own take on beautiful blush.”
