Tissington Hall is the perfect spot for a wedding.

With its idyllic village setting, St Mary’s church just across the way and several options for a civil ceremony, it is easy to see why couples fall in love with the idea of getting married with us.


While the Hall, Arboretum Pavilion Marquee and the Carriage House are so popular, and perfect for larger wedding celebrations, the rise of the Micro Wedding in recent years got us thinking… We would love offer an intimate dining option for smaller wedding parties…Do we have such a space? Well, no one loves a party more than the FitzHerbert family, this house was built for entertaining, of course we do!


With this thought in mind, we threw open the doors of the private dining room to some of our most visionary suppliers for their opinion.

The conclusion came in a flurry of excitement, mood boards and measuring up and within days we were prepping for a styled shoot to show just how luxurious a Micro Wedding can be. We wanted to give potential Brides and Grooms inspiration and show that smaller weddings aren’t restricted to a registry office and dinner in a restaurant, you can go grand, wild and luxe! Hence the inspiration for the shoot, Wild Luxe.


Tracey Campbell of Campbell’s Flowers designed the concept for the shoot around the original William Morris curtains framing the dual aspect windows, picking out shades of pink and burgundy. Photographer Helen Rose sourced the models and the wedding clothing in line with Tracey’s vision, picking out dreamy wedding dresses and traditional morning wear.

Sir Richard and Lady FitzHerbert very kindly loaned us the Tissington Hall flatware and crystal for the table settings, along with charger plates from Executive Linen and Tracey worked with Inviting Writing UK to create the stationary suite which could not have been more perfect in style or colour. Tracey filled the table with flowers in perfect shades and lots candles to create an abundance of colour and light, each candelabra adorned with a velvet bow to add texture and trend to the styling.  The same flowers were added to the greenery that surrounds the front door of the hall to create a stunning entrance way. 


Models Hope and John, a real life couple, were dressed by Brigdens of Burton and Alexandra Anne Bridal and hair and make-up were looked after by Cheveux byc and Creative DM, both of whom work with some of our real brides.

The antique sideboard showcased the beautiful wedding cake provided by SJ Cake Studio, again surrounded by blooms and perfectly placed under a priceless oil painting.


The day was filmed by Lana Johnson Video to capture the preparations and finished product.

The shoot perfectly reflects the surroundings, elegant and exclusive, and shows just how stunning a micro wedding can be.

Religious Ceremonies can be held in St Mary’s Church in the village while civil ceremonies are conducted in Tissington’s Main Hall, the East Drawing Room, Carriage House or the beautiful gardens, all options are dog friendly! After the ceremony guests can enjoy a glass of fizz on the terrace before being called through to the dining room for dinner. Our chefs are on hand to create a bespoke wedding breakfast while the drinks team keep the wine flowing!

After the excitement of the day, a Bridal Suite awaits the happy couple, while guests can stroll back to one of apartments or cottages so no need for cabs or having to drive home!
