The Pennard House is nestled in the quaint county of Somerset, England, and setting eyes upon the grounds gives the feeling that you are transported to another time. The ladies of Wedding Creations UK and Bowtie and Belle Photography created this gorgeous inspiration shoot based upon Italian heritage, with authentic elements and traditions. The intimate table set for eight is dressed with a stunning Italian hand-crocheted vintage table linen, and Italian crystal, olive leaf, and Limoncello.
