Real Wedding Feature – Part 1
We always love sharing some of the weddings we plan, and our blog is the perfect place to do this as we can include far more photos than in our portfolio, although having said that we’ve had to split this feature into two posts! Suzie and Nick’s wedding was held at the stunning Manor House in Wiltshire and I’m pleased to say that the rain managed to hold off long enough for their ceremony to be held outside on the lawn, it only came down by the bucket load when everyone was seated for dinner, but it certainly didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits as they rocked the dancefloor until 1am.
The design brief was to be elegant with a contemporary twist and a few quirky touches. We kept the colour palette neutral with stone and white and then added touches of marshmellow pink and bold green -the place names were actual apples which provided a real talking point.
We had a lot of fun working on the design details…the table plan was made up of individual flower pots that had lolly sticks for each person to find; there were different cards for guests to write their messages on, each with a sentence to complete; we also set up the ever popular photo booth with tons of props for people to amuse themselves with.
Suzie is part Turkish so she wanted to introduce this somewhere. Without being too literal we came up with the idea of creating a contemporary Moroccan style dance tent for the second marquee. Rather than traditional swags of fabric and big cushions we had sleek white furniture, white Moroccan lanterns, hot pink and purple scatter cushions mixed in with Moroccan print cushions, giving a very cool and fun overall look. The lighting was also a real focus and the addition of the ‘Mr & Mrs Smith’ lighting above the bar certainly finished it off nicely…
It was a pleasure working with Suzie and Nick to create their perfect day and we wish them all the best for the future x
