The vision for Clareana & Eduardo’s Wedding was to incorporate the stunning manicured grounds with views of rolling hills and their own herd of Deer leaping in the background, this truly was the perfect English Wedding location. To create the feeling of space and light we opted for a Papakata Sperry tent for the dining and then we created an outdoor ceremony area, with the help of 200 rose petals filling a pond and 1500 pansy’s which is still one of my favourite outdoor ceremony spaces to date!

Inside the flowers were in just as much abundance, Marianne Johnson from Sweet Pea Flowers, London created exquisite endless green and white flowers which cascaded off the ends of the towers and hung high from the ceiling. Weaving in and out of the flowers were 350 pillar candles and 250 tealights creating the perfect ambience once the sun went down. In Brazilian wedding’s it is custom to provide a sweets and cake station which are usually works of art. We chose to carry on the green and white theme and filled a table with individually wrapped chocolates and cakes displayed on various heights with a fabulous urn arrangement above. Catering was provided by the fabulous Caper & Berry and it would have been wrong not to have English Sparkling wine from the Bolney Vineyard as you can see their vines from the estate! Music filled the day with a string quartet for the ceremony and drinks reception and then in true Brazillian style dancing filled the Sperry all night. All of the day was captured by the Fine Art photographer Julie Michaelsen who’s stunning images you can see below.

This wedding was also featured on the world renowned wedding blog Style Me Pretty.

Louisa & Lyndon live in America but have strong connections to the UK and picked the stunning Loseley Park in the Surrey countryside for their luxury wedding. Flowers were certainly the theme for day! Guests arrived to 6m high flower arch which was ‘growing’ around the doorway of the stately home. Inside the gold gilded ceremony room a romantic ambiance was set lifted with a stunning string quartet playing Louisa down the aisle. After the ceremony guests were welcomed with champagne and canapés at Loseley’s barn. Once inside the true transformation was revealed. From a plain barn to a magical woodland we totally transformed the entire space to bring the outside in. Enjoy!

Sophie & Oli selected Chelsea Old Church to marry in and then a huge celebration at the breath taking Syon Park. They both knew exactly what they wanted with this wedding and injected lots of their personality into the wedding design. You will see touches of Oli in the peacock feather buttonholes, dinosaur place card holders and also the open photobooth.

Sophie wore a stunning couture Stephanie Allin gown which had the most beautiful intricate detailing of flowers on the base. Oliver and his groomsmen opted for classic blue suits from Jack Bunney’s formal hire completed by duck egg ties and a peacock feather.

After a stunning and joyous ceremony, all of the guests arrived back at Syon Park for a drinks reception in the courtyard of the Old House whilst listening to the captivating sounds of a string quartet and canapes by the caterers Tapenade. Guests were then called to dinner which they took a short walk into the conservatory at Syon House with its spectacular entrance through masses of tropical plants. Once entering the main dining room of the conservatory all of the guests could be wowed by the bold and fabulous floral displays by Marianne Johnson of Sweet Pea Flowers.

Syon Park was a wonderful venue for Oli & Sophie and their wedding was a pleasure to plan and be part of. The images by Kris Piotrowski and Kristen Mavric below provide an insight into this wonderful day!

When Lucy & Danny approached me about their circus tent wedding, my mind instantly went to visions of red and vintage rides. This couldn’t have been further from the truth. Lucy was insistent that they wanted to use the big top as it has been a huge part of Danny’s life but this was where the circus styling ended. Instead, we used the dark blue canvas of the big top to create an opulent and fairy tale setting filled with candles and thousands of fairy lights.

The wedding itself was in the local village church which was literally packed to the rafters! On the beautiful sunny day, all of the guests then walked down the village hill to Folkington Manor which in its impressive grounds stood the impressive structure of the big top! We also created a “Granny Tent’ which was adjacent to the big top filled with cigars, prosecco, and vintage furniture for guests to chill out in.

As both Lucy & Danny work in TV & Film, entertainment was very important to them and the fabulous dueling pianos entertained their guests into the night. Once the dancing was over they were treated to exceptional fish & chips brought straight from the Eastbourne seaside. It was a totally unique wedding and a pleasure to plan for this fantastic couple!

From the first moment I met Ne-et & Rob I knew planning their wedding at Pennyhill Park was going to be a lot of fun! These two have such an infectious enthusiasm for life and are just a delight to be around. When couples are so clearly head over heels in love and want a day filled with celebration of this love they are special to plan.

Sharing a love for luxury spas Ne-et & Rob’s ideal wedding venue had to have a stunning spa and this brief took me to the impeccable Pennyhill Park Hotel . The grounds of Pennyhill Park are breathtakingly from the initial impression as you drive along the sweeping drive past the home of the England Rugby team to the impressive entrance. I knew as soon as the car drew close this was going to be a special venue.

Sophie & Tim were married at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, London. This impressive building was equally awe-inspiring inside, every guest that walked through the main doors of the Painted Hall said the words “wow” as they climbed the steps and took in the huge painting which covered the entire ceiling. As the Painted Hall was steeped in history Sophie & Tim didn’t want to take away from this but simply compliment it with their table styling. We opted for the classic combination burgundy and gold which fitted the room perfectly.

Steph & Dor chose the beautiful Cain Manor in England’s rolling countryside to host their celebration. guests flew in from all over the world to celebrate with this hopelessly in love couple. Planned by Emma from Something Blue Wedding’s who is known for her fine art elegant style. Steph’s vision was to have stunning white and green flowers on a classic grey backdrop to perfectly reflect the surroundings they were in. Steph wanted to incorporate Sunflowers as they are her favourite flower but didn’t want them to play a prominent role in the table styling. These fitted perfectly into the wedding stationery giving a small nod to her favourite bloom. With the men dresses in the brides family tartan kilts and the bridesmaids in a timeless navy this sure was a style filled wedding. This flower filled emotional day was celebrated with gorgeous food followed by a dance floor full to the brim all evening.

Tamsin & Graham were married at the local village church access via a spectacular sweet pea floral arch followed by a marquee wedding reception at Tamsin’s family home. Tamsin & Graham had a lot of family involvement in their wedding and brought me in to ensure that someone with neutral opinions was there for them on their wedding day and during the planning process.

The marquee had unspoilt views of the surrounding countryside and even views of the village church which the ceremony would take place. Sadly the weather the week of the wedding was not kind and access to the site was affected meaning we had to alter locations for toilets, parking and the drinks reception in the week of the wedding. On the day its self we were blessed with glorious sunshine for the drinks reception allowing for the celebrations not to be affected.

Capturing the day was Depict Film Photography which when you have this setting film photography really does come into its own as I’m sure you’ll agree when you

Kate & Peppy knew that they wanted their London Wedding to be different from the start. Originally from the UK but now living in Dubai, they were used to lavish events but wanted their wedding to be totally original and fun-filled. Once they walked into London Soho’s Ham Yard Hotel they were sold, every inch of space is interior designed in the most spectacular way. From the living garden roof terrace which would house the ceremony and drinks reception to the totally individual Croc bowling alley which was to be used for the wedding reception.

Leanne & Nick’s flower filled Wedding at the gorgeous wedding venue Northbrook Park was something pretty special. Leanne took so much time to plan and knew exactly the style and vision she wanted for her special day. I only became involved in this wedding 4 weeks prior to the big day as sadly Leanne had been let down by another planner. I was delighted to help Leanne in this super stylish wedding. She had a dream team of suppliers and it was a pleasure to be part of. Take a look at the images below to see how the stunning Northbrook Park looked on the day.
