We had a busy day ahead, whilst EJ was interviewing The Duchess of Rutland about her breathtaking home and what makes Belvoir Castle the most unique of wedding venues the the rest of the team were preparing for the styled shoot to follow.
Three stunning looks were created for this shoot, all suiting the many fantastic rooms you can choose from at Belvoir Castle. The Pronovias dresses from RS Bridal Collection ranged from a grand ‘queen like’ dress, a medieval long sleeved dress to a slinky jewelled evening gown.

The shoot was fantastic and Buckinghams loved it so much that we decided to return and create a cover for our Issue Four Magazine. We created a fourth look, this time releasing our inner Queen and taking an iconic style from Queen Victoria who stayed at Belvoir Castle for three nights in 1843. The Ivory & Co. tiara graced the cover along with the same model Lucy Inkley, who had her hair and makeup styled by Adele Coxon and photographed by Sophie May Morris
Buckinghams are proud to be organising a wedding fair like no other at Belvoir Castle, the magnificent home of the 11th Duke and Duchess of Rutland. Surrounded by beautiful gardens with stunning far reaching views, Belvoir Castle offers the grandest of locations for your wedding day and this event will be sure to inspire you.
