If you've escaped the realities of life through Bridgerton, Dear Reader, you are certainly not alone! Netflix's recent, steamy, period drama is a hit with romance lovers everywhere. If you loved the fashion, the setting and the fine details, here are some ways you can bring a touch of Bridgerton to your wedding that will impress even the likes of Lady Whistledown; from the wedding venue to the flowers and or even the cake.

If you're ready to have your wedding be the talk of the Ton, read on, but beware, there may be some spoilers ahead...

The Venue

If you are wanting to choose a Bridgerton-inspired wedding venue, is there a better choice than one of the beautiful locations used within the series? I think not! Many of the filming locations are also stunning wedding venues! Check out some of the most notable locations from all 3 series and the Queen Charlotte spin off that are perfect choices for fans of the series.

The Holburne Museum

Holbourne Museum in Bath Wedding Venue

Despite the series being set in London, many of the locations chosen we set in Bath. The Holburne Museum, for example, acts as the home for the formidable Lady Danbury in the series. A beautiful setting for a wedding too, don't you think? This setting is ideal for couples wanting that Regency feel for their guests as soon as they arrive for their wedding.


That's not all! Several other wedding venues in Bath were used in filming too, many of which can be found right here on Guides for Brides. Of course, the series was also filmed in a number of notable locations across the country.

In neighbouring Bristol, the stunning Leigh Court was also used as a key setting in the show. According to the Radio Times, Leigh Court plays host to a number of magical ballroom scenes and the rooms used include the Princes Ballroom, the Ingenue Ballroom and the Crawford Ballroom. You'll recognise this setting and it's striking staircase from the episode "Art of the Swoon" in Season 1.


Dorney Court

Remember those dramatic wedding night scenes from Season 1? Those were filmed at the beautiful Dorney Court! This stunning, wedding venue is elegant, bright and filled with history. Perfect for any couple wanting to marry somewhere romantic and historic. Additionally, this was also used as the home of Mr and Mrs Danbury (before they became Lord and Lady) in the Queen Charlotte spin off.


Kingston Bagpuize House & Gardens

Previously featured in iconic TV dramas such as From Emma, Tortoise in Love and Downton Abbey, Kingston Bagpuize House & Gardens was used in Season 3 as the new home of Alice and Will Mondrich's son, Nicholas, as he becomes the new Baron of Kent!


Ditton Manor

Ditton Manor is a stunning wedding venue in Berkshire and was used in the Queen Charlotte spin-off. You can see it in the first episode of the show as Untere Schloss, the home of Charlotte and her brother, before she is taken to England to marry King George.


Blenheim Palace

Blenheim Palace Exterior

Blenheim Palace is an iconic setting that has been used in many period dramas for both TV and film, so it was no surprise to us to see it regularly within the Queen Charlotte spin off series, acting as Buckingham House throughout. A very regal setting, is it not?


Hampton Court Palace

The breathtaking exterior of Hampton Court Palace in Surrey is also a notable location. This venue acts as the exterior of St James's Palace, where Queen Charlotte holds court. Just imagine walking through the gardens of this Historic Royal Palace with your beloved on your wedding day and you guests gushing at the grandeur and beauty!



It goes without saying that the costume department for this series is incredibly talented. If you are gushing over the gorgeous Regency-inspired fashion within the show, there are plenty of ways to incorporate elements of it into your wedding look. You don't have to have a period themed wedding! These elements translate well into a modern wedding, as many Regency elements can be seen in the ever-popular boho and rustic fashion styles. 

See the video below to hear how the costume department added modern elements with contemporary colour palettes and details into the show itself:

The Dress

Whether you want to go for the full style or take small elements and add it to your look, the romantic and whimsical style of Regency fashion in the show is more accessible than you think for your wedding dress. Empire line gowns, capped sleeves, floral dresses and scoop necklines are all ways you can incorporate Regency style into your wedding dress. For Bridgerton's modern take on the era's fashion, consider applique details and a bit of sparkle.

This gorgeous A-line gown from Justin Alexander (stocked at TDR Bridal) is the perfect example of regency charm with the modern twist that Bridgerton's costume department is so brilliant at. We love the floral details on the skirt and the cinched corset bodice.


Scoop neck Caroline Castigliano Dress

This scoop neck Caroline Castigliano gown, Ode To Joy, is perfect for brides wanting to emulate the necklines they see in Bridgerton with a clean-cut look. You can find this chic style stocked at Ellie Sanderson Bridal in Beaconsfield.


Danielle Frankel Wedding Dress

If you want to go a little further and have the full Regency look, this style by Danielle Frankel named "Rosalie" is the perfect blend of regency style and modern boho. This dress is made from 100% silk and we simply adore the overall look and feel, especially when paired with those statement earrings!

And what of the bridal accessories? From vintage jewellery to long, sultry gloves to your lingerie, there are so many ways to add to your look with Regency-inspired accessories. Why not consider adding a choker? This can give a tasteful or even statement touch of jewellery that is inspired by the Regency style. We love this example by Olivia and Pearl featuring a delicate string of seed pearls.

You can easily get inspired by Bridgerton for your wedding menswear too, without needing to go full Regency in the silhouette. The tailcoats, top hats and canes can easily be incorporated into your style. You could take inspiration from the Duke's look with a statement patterned waistcoat or brightly coloured jacket, something a bespoke tailor will easily be able to assist with.

Cotswold Tailor Menswear

For example, these menswear looks from the Cotswold Tailor are easily achievable and still have a touch of Regency formality. You could even opt for a cravat instead of a tie if you wished to step up the Regency feel!


Hair and Make-up

Whether you are looking for an understated, elegant look like Daphne or Marina, or would prefer something more of a statement like Lady Featherington, there are plenty of looks from Bridgerton that could inspire your bridal hair and make-up.

Take inspiration from their hair accessories as well. If you are wanting a look that screams regality, why not consider a tasteful crown, tiara or hair vine like Queen Charlotte and Daphne at her debutante presentation. If you are wanting something more whimsical, you can often see flowers feature in Marina Thompson's looks. And, if you are wanting to make more of a statement, bright feathers amid grand curls can easily assist!


Flowers by Kirsty White Rose Bouquet

Now, for the wedding flowers. A recurring theme surrounding Daphne are white roses, representing innocence and purity (everything expected for a Regency era debutante). White roses are simply gorgeous and can really add a wonderful, soft element to the florals in any wedding. If you want to incorporate them too, why not consider using them in your bridal bouquet. They can also be really sweet in buttonholes. This bouquet example from Flowers by Kirsty is simply divine and has white roses throughout.


Cakes and Sweet Treats

High society in Bridgerton certainly had some very delectable treats. From colourful macarons to gorgeous cakes and fresh fruit, they paint the picture that wealthy families had their choice of delights. Why not incorporate Bridgerton's eccentricity when it comes to the food into your wedding? Surely it's the perfect excuse to display sweet treats, colourful fruits, croquembouche and macaron towers for your guests to enjoy!

You could even take inspiration from the Featherington's bright and colourful palette when it comes to your wedding cake or be inspired by the Bridgeton's pastel tones. For example, this wedding cake by Dovey Cake Design would fit perfectly within a Bridgerton celebration! We love the soft pastel blues and silver details, especially paired with the macarons.


Music and Entertainment

Your music and entertainment choices for your wedding will really influence the atmosphere on the day. Did you notice the recent pop hits hiding in the show's soundtrack? Songs such as Billie Eilish's "Bad Guy" and Taylor Swift's "Wildest Dreams" among other notable tunes have been covered by the Vitamin String Quartet to bring the perfect balance between modern and Regency era music.

Why not consider a string quartet for your wedding? It could be the perfect talking point for your guests as they mingle, hearing modern, recognisable songs being played during your drinks reception or wedding breakfast. Quartets and Trios like The Wigornia String Quartet have songs in their repertoire from bands and artists like the Beatles, Christina Perry and even One Direction!

So, as you can see, there are plenty of ways you can incorporate elements of Bridgerton into your wedding day, from fashion to entertainment! If you haven't seen it yet or want to watch it again, you can find Season 1 and 2 of Bridgerton on Netflix.
