A Classical Romance at Chiswick House and Gardens

Ahead of our annual Wedding Showcase we are thrilled to release a preview of this collaborative shoot which brings together quintessentially English and Italian traditions. Designed by Bride and Belle, the shoot was inspired by 2019 wedding trends with combinations of gold and gorgeous nude tones; colours that effortlessly complement the lavish gold details and grand gallery paintings of Chiswick House.


The fictional love story is set in the 18th century Villa, with elegant English lady Elisabeth awaiting arrival from her suitor Andreas from Rome. Andreas arrives to Chiswick House and brings presents to his bride. They exchange their vows and celebrate with a graceful feast. An editorial shoot full of classical romance! Chiswick House and its adorned history was the inspiration behind the fictional love story and photographer Eva Tarnok wanted to incorporate elements of the fascinating history of the estate.

Our annual Wedding Showcase takes place Saturday 6th April 2019 and we’re very excited to welcome everyone! It’s the ultimate wedding planning experience with amazing suppliers to meet from caterers, designers and florists, to bridal boutiques and many more! There will also be luxury goody bags full of treats to take home…doesn’t that sound amazing! It’s free to attend for you and your bridal parties all you must do is pre-register here.
