Weddings at Hareston Manor, Devon with Modern Pre-Raphaelite Vibes

Marquee wedding hanging decor

These gorgeous images were submitted by the talented Nikki Sheriff, the lady behind creative and luxe wedding stationery brand Knots & Kisses.

Along with many other creatives this year, in the absence of actual weddings taking place, Nikki set out to create beautiful, head-turning editorial to inspire brides patiently waiting to tie the knot after having to postpone their weddings.  The scene for these images was the dreamy Hareston Manor wedding venue in Devon.

I love how the team went intimate with this shoot, focussing on the current need for 15 maximum ‘micro weddings’.

“The beautiful Hareston Manor with its 14th Century chapel and gorgeous grounds was the perfect backdrop for beautiful printed marquees by LPM Bohemia.”

“We followed the day right through from getting ready, an intimate family only ceremony in the chapel, a larger blessing out on the lawn, drinks tent, grazing food reception and beautiful outdoor seating and fire pits.”
