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!

From the first moment I met M & C I knew planning their wedding at the stunning Four Seasons Hampshire 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 my love for the countryside and flowers an ideal wedding venue had to have a stunning grounds in close proximity to London. Teamed with exceptional service this brief took me to the impeccable Four Seasons Hampshire Hotel . The grounds of the hotel are breathtakingly from the initial impression as you drive along the sweeping drive past grazing horses  to the impressive entrance.

Devon & Nicholas wanted a traditional English garden wedding filled with seasonal flowers and brimming with the outside. Their lives revolve around family and the outdoor and both of these were key elements in their wedding design. We wanted to create the illusion of dining under the woodland canopy whilst making it practical for an English summertime weather. Bloomologie flowers create the most amazing wedding ceremony floral arch which wowed all the guests from the moment they arrived at the breathtakingly beautiful gardens of Thorpe Manor, an exclusive use wedding venue in the heart of the Oxfordshire countryside. Following the outdoor ceremony guests were then treated to a champagne drinks reception in Thorpe Manors manicured gardens before being welcomed into the bespoke marquee nestled onto the bottom lawn for a delightful dinner and dancing.

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.

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!

From the first moment I met with Katherine I knew I wanted to plan hers and Alan's wedding. She had such a clear vision for the style she wanted for their day and in her words "apart from marrying Alan, flowers are the most important part of my day" were music to my ears. With so many of my weddings flowers play a huge part and in their special day Ali from Bloomologie wen't to town. At Rhodes House in the heart of Oxford we transformed our traditional pole tent marquee in to a garden oasis. With a huge floral installation growing from the top table to trees on the tables and growing up the poles, you'd never have known we were in a marquee and that you weren't sitting within the garden itself! The styling didn't stop at the flowers, something I adore to bring into my weddings is uniqueness and we certainly delivered here. Katherine studied textiles many years ago before heading into her now profession of law. Therefore it was very important to her to have many textures, colours and patterns as part of the day. Armed with my book of linen samples, glassware options and antique cutlery from Helene Millot the tablescape started to come to life. When we couldn't find a patterned tablecloth which fitted the brief I looked outside of the usual hire options and discovered these stunning blue and white patterned cloths from H&M Home. What a joy of a wedding this was to plan and thank you to Katherine & Alan for trusting me with it. Oxford was a dream city to plan a wedding in and bring a slice of the countryside to this historic city.

When my clients approached me to manage their plans in the final stages of their wedding planning journey and to ensure everything ran perfectly in the final weeks towards their wedding I was more than happy to help. I've planned a wedding before at Folkington Manor and it's such a hidden gem of a venue. 

The wedding ceremony 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 through private woodland to Folkington Manor. In its impressive grounds stood the gorgeous structure of the bespoke clear span marquee.

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.

Shanie & Stuart were married in a stunning outside ceremony at Pennyhill Park Hotel in Surrey. Florists White Lilac created an exquisite ceremony area adored with massed of white flowers creating a living aisle for Shanie to walk down towards her waiting groom, Stuart. Once the ceremony was finished guests were treated to a champagne reception and then onto Pennyhill Park's Balmoral Suite for a lavish wedding breakfast. Carrying on with the natural tones in the ceremony the Balmoral room was filled with white and greens with elements of copper to reflect the invite suite by Emily & Jo. A stunning, flower filled day with a twist at the end of a vintage arcade this wedding was certainly fun to plan.

With the gentlemen wearing traditional morning suits and Lauren having not one but two stunning dresses this day was every inch as stylish as the bride and groom.

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. Not to mentioned that fabulous bouquet of dreams!

Starting off with a lawn drinks reception to live music and the finest Champagne followed by dinner in the floral adorned marquee and then an epic party in a dance tipi to end the night with fresh wood fired pizza!
