I first met this lovely couple Emma and Harvey about 9 months ago at the Sundridge Park Wedding Fair. It was very refreshing to meet a Groom with such a strong idea as to how their day was going to take place and at a later stage I found it it was Harvey who planned the entire day! Emma did of course oversee some areas.
Emma held a hand tied bouquet of white peonies and crystal studded ivory roses, edged with eucalyptus. The scent and softness was just beautiful!
They had decided that the theme was to be very "Summer English Garden", "classy and elegant" Both looks that I love and are great for this venue.
I chose to use all white and ivory flowers with just a hint of colour from the mink vintage roses. The flowers were also brought together with silver eucalyptus and to match in the boys suits. To top it all off, I adorned crystal chains and pendants, irridesent crystals and pearls to the arrangements and bouquets to give everthing that opulent touch
The Bridesmaids wore a oyster coloured ballgown style dress and held mixed rose domes in ivory and oyster with foliage. Whilst the Little Flower Girl waved a wand made from an ivory rose with sparkling crystal studs. Too Cute!
Throughout the Mansion, I dressed the rooms with scented blooms including peonies, stocks, roses, lilies and hydrangeas. The colours blended in so well with the decor- they looked as if they had been there since the house was built.
The white chocolate tiered cake was dressed with rings of roses for a sumptious look and really did look all good enough to eat.
The Ceremony was held in the garden room and looked so beautiful. The large displays were classic but had a modern touch by being elevated on glass cylinders and were swagged in crystal chains. The softness of the chairs, with white chiffon bows just finnished everything off- the only thing missing at that point was the Bride.
The top table was dressed in a matching display to the Bride and Groom to enjoy. I loved the other little touches, like name place iced biscuits and the pictures in vinatge frames which Harvey had placed around the House on fireplaces and side tables- again creating a feeling that they really belonged there.
The Ballroom was breathtaking with large centrepieces in martini vases filled with scented flowers from the theme. Again the flowers wetre swagged in crystal chains....(anyone who knows me and has read my prevoius Blogs will know where this idea came from!!- March 2010)
