Coombe Trenchard is a beautiful Edwardian country hotel in the heart of Devon, and it was the perfect backdrop for this wedding inspiration shoot. A team of local suppliers came together with a vision of ‘feathers and foraging wedding styling’, and created something exceptional.

Brides planning an elegant country house wedding will love these wedding styling ideas. The rustic details of twine tied napkins, foraged bird feathers, tweed, foliage and flowers work beautifully with the elegant antique silver, candelabras and crystal glassware. Also, the deep plum tones, purples and rich evergreens give warmth to the shoot.

Our thanks go to Liberty Pearl Photography and the creative team for sharing their ideas for feathers and foraging wedding styling.

Sense of Occasion

“We wanted to draw on the beautifully tendered gardens, historic setting and the sense of occasion that Coombe Trenchard has to offer.

“The Old Billiard room has a magnificent large walk in oak fireplace, and walls clad in Buffalo hide. We wanted to embrace these characteristics and create something a little different. Working with a team of hand-picked local suppliers we created this feathers and foraging wedding styling.

Style and Elegance

“Antique silver cutlery, candelabras and crystal glassware gave the table an air of style and elegance. Gold beaded charger plates lifted the place settings, and twine tied napkins and foraged bird feathers finished the look.

“Sugar Mama’s Cakery created a clean, bright and pretty wedding cake design. Finished with a hand tied ribbon, feathers and a large deep plum flower, it looked splendid set against the Buffalo hide walls.
