OK my lovelies, get yourselves comfy and feast your eyes on this stunner of a shoot. It’ll knock your socks off!
Coordinated and styled by the super talented and lovely Nikki from Knots & Kisses and captured by Mel from Maxi Photography, the beguiling Paschoe House provided the perfect backdrop for this jungle luxe inspired shoot.
Over to Nikki to tell you all about it…

The inspiration for the shoot started with a love of teal and gold. I love the jungle and woodland themes but wanted to create something a bit more striking with a glam 70’s feel, including leopard print. The bride for this shoot would not be a shrinking violet but a bit of a glamour girl who loves a bold print and a red lip.
After a visit to Paschoe house and seeing their gorgeous dining room wallpaper everything fell into place and a geometric feel was added to the look for the shoot.
My design concept was to create a wedding look that would work perfectly with a gorgeous hotel venue – something modern and yet inspired by the glamour of the 1970’s and 1920’s.
Lots of lush foliage was key to the look and I wanted to include lots of greenery and house plants as well as table foliage to give that opulent drawing room feel.
Cocktails were essential to both eras and so lounging in a peacock chair with a bar cart and champagne was a key look. We envisioned this bride having a very relaxed and glamourous wedding – late evening cocktails and bar trolleys and a dessert table with gold boxes of chocolates.
We also envisaged photos post-wedding in the forest and woodland surrounding Paschoe House, the bouquet was to look just like it had been gathered from the jungle or forest floor. This wedding would be casual and yet decadent.
Paschoe was an amazing backdrop for the shoot with really striking spaces. This venue is also not a shrinking violet with patterned wallpapers in every room and bold use of prints and colour. Set amongst the Devon countryside and it’s rolling hills it still has an incredibly luxe and glamorous feel rather than your typical ‘country hotel’.
