This couple were so much fun to work with and I loved all the quirky, personal touches they had at their wedding. They chose to get married in a beautiful country club called Wickwoods, a hidden gem in the Sussex countryside surrounded by mature trees. Lauren had a her heart set on an unusual flower combination of roses and succulents in muted nude, pink and coffee shades. They perfectly complimented the mocha bridesmaid dresses and in fact one of the variety of roses we used was called ‘Cappucino’.
Oli’s wore a striking blue suit and I ensured that some of the roses also perfectly matched his bright pink socks. Don’t you love guys that embrace pink?
These gorgeous images were taken by the brilliant Sara Reeve Photography, who is also a fellow member of The Sussex Wedding Collective. Thanks lovely Sara for letting me use these images.
Congratulations L&O. I love this photo of you both, totally gone with the wind! And so pleased to say that this wedding was admired so much, it also appears in Wedding Ideas Magazine, the no 1 Bridal Magazine in the UK. Hurrah! Katherine x
What a beautiful spring wedding this was set in the magical grounds of Great Fosters
, a Grade One listed venue with some 50 acres of stunning gardens. I was introduced to Angela and Chris by the indomitable wedding planner Inspired By Susie Evans
. Susie knew that the flowers were central to the wedding theme and that she needed a a florist who could interpret the ‘Bright Spring Blooms’ brief and create natural seasonal wedding flowers with heaps of contrasting colours and textures.
The reception drinks were held in the Painted Hall where guests could look at the fabulous ‘planted’ table plan using my vintage apple crates. Each of the tables was named after one of the featured flowers and Angela cleverly made all the table cards herself including the meaning of the flowers too. Such a sweet idea and it smelt divine!
After champagne and canapes, guests then moved into the Tithe Barn for the wedding reception. Here I used a combination of high and low centrepieces to create the wow factor. The beautiful gold chiavari chairs were hired from Coordination Catering Hire
and the fantastic lighting system was created by Creative Spark
