Thorpe Manor House

Alternative bride at Thorpe Manor House

Thorpe Manor is a Grade II listed Georgian manor house which the owners completely restored to an incredible spec. The man power that has gone into this is quite staggering and Natasha and Henrys dedication has finally paid off with the doors now open!

We were hugely fortunate to be able to photograph the first styled shoot at Thorpe Manor House (workmen were still painting in the final few days!). It really is the most incredible venue and as they say ‘blank canvas’ to host your wedding day. There are so many options, your wedding will be so unique and tailored to your personality.

Working with Indulgence Boutique Hospitality, the exclusive caterers at Thorpe Manor House, they created the most sublime sharing platter for the tablescape in the courtyard. It was important for us to showcase the intimate sharing dining experience that could be upscaled for a larger wedding.

The dress designs were a key part of the aesthetic of this editorial. This dress in particular by Alicia Rueda from Spain had the most exquisite embroidery.

Princess Patisserie did an astounding job with the cake design. Barely there was the brief – every element needed to be understated yet breathtakingly beautiful. Combined with the florals from Fiona Perry it was perfect.

On a side note, have you considered how to present your cake on your wedding day? This perspex plinth is a modern option.

Fiona incorporated the perspex again with the stationery presentation. Using soft florals, feather type grasses and ferns she softened the look.

Have you considered a coloured wedding dress? Creating a wow factor for the final look, this beaded cape by Gibson Bespoke was ethereal.

Thorpe Manor House has so many locations to utilise for your photographs.

Is it possible to purchase the Alicia Rueda embroidered dress online somewhere?


Thank you for your comment Hannah. I would advise contacting Alicia Rueda directly. All of their dresses are made to measure as far as I’m aware but they may have a sample. I did that myself with my wedding dress – bought a dress off the peg from a designer in Australia as it wouldn’t have been possible to get fittings over there, and then had it adjusted here. GOOD LUCK, its a beautiful dress!
