Oriental Wedding Inspiration at The Matara Centre

The venue alone is a unique space. Nestled in the Cotswolds countryside, you would not expect to find an oriental oasis. But the Matara Centre offers exactly that, and more. The cloistered courtyard is Chinese inspired, and a lot of our inspiration from the wedding shoot was derived from here. It was our vision to create a modern set up, with natural, asian influences.

Our vision was firstly to bring the destination wedding vibe to a venue local to us. A lot of couples dream of marrying abroad, but often logistics can get in the way. Perhaps it’s out of their budget. Or they don’t want to put that pressure and time commitment and money on their guests. And since covid, adding international travel to your wedding plans seems risky. A trend emerging from this seems to be the ‘staycation’ wedding.

Red is the signature colour for a lot of Chinese weddings, and we wanted to veer away from this. So we used colours that are based on red, like pinks and oranges, and this created a softer, spring vibe.

Wedding Styling

Nature was the main source of inspiration. Dandelion Celebrations was the ideal stylist to bring this vision to life. The earthy tones and materials such as wood and stoneware allowed the table to blend within the calming setting of the cloistered courtyard. The decor also included Asian inspired hand made ceramics from Foredays. Inspired by the peacefulness of the gardens, Hélène at Smitten with Ink created a delicate little package of menu cards to add to the vibrant and elegant tablescape. Hand printed on a traditional hot foil press. Her stationery mirrors the setting with its debossed texture and also soft rounded shapes. The bridal look was elegant and understated, with a British designer Savannah Miller dress and sleek bun for the main set up.

Workshops By Jade

This stunning shoot is also the first workshop I hosted. My mission was to provide photographers of all levels with destination wedding content. Although the venue is in the UK, it looks abroad. Furthermore I want to keep the group intimate, so that all the attendees get their opportunity to shoot. And also don’t feel rushed or pressured! Follow @workshopsbyjade on instagram for updates on future workshops. I am planning a destination wedding workshop in Switzerland at the start of 2023. And more UK ones at the end of 2023.
