Romance in Medieval Mansion - Ella & Simon

On Saturday 13th August, Ella married Simon at the stunning Surrey Mansion. Nonsuch Mansion. http://www.nonsuchmansion.com/

I first met Ella and Simon last Autumn when it became clear that Ella wanted the flowers to reflect the romance of the day, and to be in keeping with the venue's glorious grounds and amazing decor. With words like, romance, lace and vintage and a colour scheme of champagne, blush and taupe- I was excited about the floral theme...as always but a little more as this is my absoloute fav!

Ella wore a stunning dress in ivory chiffon with lace and crystal details on the bodice. The Bridesmaids wore cashmere satin gowns with crystal cluster details. GORGE! You can see above how well these colours went with the decor.

The Bouquets were a lovely summer mix of roses ranging from blush, to antique brown. I used white astrantia, and silver kotchia to give a dainty, textured lacey look the dome. They almost looked like they had lace fabric amogst the flowers- really, really pretty.

The Ceremony took place in the Rose room. with huge sash windows looking out into the gardens, medieval rose wallpaper, the room oozes romance. A very nervious Miss Carter became a very happy Mrs Way. x

I simply enhanced the naural surroundings of the room by adding blousey arrangements in all soft colours and summer garden flowers including delphiniums, roses and hydrangeas.

The reception took place in the Orchid room with ornate mirrors, fireplace and a golden chandlier to die for! I arranged simple domes for summer flowers from the colour scheme using soft blush roses, vinatge brown hydrangeas, with scented stocks and wild dille. The overall look against the stricking features was simply lovley. I really loved they way the flowers were reflected around the octaganal room in the ceiling high mirrors.

I added in clusters of roses in vinatge style votive holders which ran along the top table and the fireplace. Below is a lovely selction of photos that I was sent through along with a few words from the Bride.


I just wanted to say from the bottom of our hearts a huge thank you for our flowers. You did such an amazing job, they were stunning beyond words can say.

My Family and Simon's were fighting as to who was going to take theme home!

Thank you again for doing a perfect job that we always new you would do!

All our love and kisses
