Another English Classic!

On what turned out to be a gloriously sunny day a few weeks ago, we set off for the wedding of Rachel and
James at the elegant

Stoke Park Club
With glorious views across the surrounding parkland, guests enjoyed a champagne reception on the terrace, before the wedding breakfast in the regency Wyatt room. Our classic champagne flute vases filled with hydrangeas, roses and scented freesias ( a favourite of the bride ) in soft pinks and creams set the tone for this most elegant of formal receptions.
A touch of whimsy was added by decorating the beautiful silver gilt "epergnes" with hydrangeas and roses, so that they almost looked like gorgeous edible arrangements!
We were very grateful to be assisted by Lester from
No.10 Wedding Design whose creative styling was invaluable!

Classic Summer Wedding

Last Saturday we were at the home of
The English Speaking Union, Dartmouth House in Mayfair for the wedding of Vici and Sherard. In this gloriously grand London mansion, we created a classic look using english summer flowers in soft pinks, blues and lilacs.

Wedding planners par excellence, The Bespoke Wedding managed the day faultlessly, ensuring that every detail was taken care of and, by the look on everyone's faces at the end of the evening, I think a good time was had by all!

The wedding breakfast took place in the beautiful Long and Small drawing rooms and here, under richly decorated ceilings and crystal chandeliers, we alternated high and low arrangements of hydrangea, scabious and lisianthus for a perfect romantic look. Soft candlelight in frosted votives warmed the room on what was a typical english summer day.....wet! You always know you've done a good job, when you return at the end of the evening to clear the venue and see the guests leaving with the flowers! When you overhear someone saying how beautiful they are and when the very happy looking bride takes the time to come and thank doesn't matter that its midnight and you've been up since 5a.m, its what we call an ET...a Euphoric Triumph!!!
