Explore this gorgeous styled photoshoot featured in Volume 7 of Virginia Wine & Country Weddings. As imagined and styled by Vida Events, this Bridgerton-inspired wedding embraces the opulence of the Regency Era and its fairytale charm. The pastel florals, sparkling crystal chandeliers and lush meadow location are all tied together by the bride’s delicate floral lace and classic, understated hair and makeup. Sweeping calligraphy on the invitations and menus add a final elegant touch to this inspiring weddingscape.

Bringing Bridgerton to Virginia Wine Country

The venue at Glenstone Gardens in Middleburg brings this vision to life, with lush greenery and an air of privacy reminiscent of a secret garden. The elegance of the gardens are amplified throughout the shoot, with a special focus on combining the extravagance of the Regency Era with the intimacy of nature.

The ceremony is complete with the surrounding views of nature and charming farmhouse-style buildings. The stonework and greenery provide the perfect complement to this envisioned English style romance.

Regency Romance Fantasy Wedding

Handwritten seating charts in swooping calligraphy on glass vases add a special touch to the ceremony, beckoning back to the long-forgotten art of personalized letter writing. The same calligraphy is featured on the menus and elegant wedding stationary.

The bride’s classic updo presents a modern approach to popular Regency Era styles. The sweeping and elegant style amplifies her sense of regality while still managing to showcase her gown’s beautiful off-the-shoulder design.

Bridgerton-Inspired Tablescapes

The floral pattern on the Monique Lhuillier bridal gown complements the china and embroidered linens on the tablescapes, and the gown shines next to a petite mono-floral bouquet from Victoria Clausen Florals. The gown’s delicate puff sleeves complete the look and establish an ethereal quality that manages to fit in so perfectly with the natural setting.

Monochromatic shades of pastel pink in the floral arrangements on the tablescapes and clustered around the tiered cake are both soft and striking. The cake itself seems to rise from its bed of roses in a gentle yet magnificent centerpiece.

Overflowing floral arrangements meld this indoor design with elements of nature, making the out-of-place feel entirely as though it belongs.

Combining Indoor and Outdoor Design

The blending of elements traditionally reserved for indoors, such as chandeliers for an al fresco setting, draws a bit of English romance into this styled weddings design with a contemporary twist. The tablescapes are complete with vintage floral china and stunning silverware reminiscent of the Regency Era.

This photoshoot drips with inspiring details evoking the decadence of Regency England for you to infuse in your Virginia Wine Country wedding. From sprawling penmanship to Regency Era fashion, there are endless ways to incorporate vintage romance into your special day with a modern twist. ~
