Michael and Katie at Northbrook Park
Having been postponed from the previous year, it’s a real pleasure to be finally able to share Michael and Katie’s wedding day at Northbrook Park with you. This wonderfully relaxed couple had the most fun from start to finish, with just the odd English shower here and there but it certainly didn’t dampen their spirits! In fact, the couple were so relieved and overjoyed to say, ‘I Do’ after waiting so patiently, that the atmosphere at their Northbrook Park wedding was simply electric!
Offering luxury floral design across Hampshire, London and beyond, I love nothing more than getting to know my couples, their personalities and everything that is truly important to them. Katie and her bridesmaids are dancers and actresses performing in many West End productions, while the bride also dances with The English National Ballet. The guests spoiled the groom with a standing ovation for attempting the first dance! It’s the personal touches like this that really do add the wow-factor to a wedding.
As their luxury wedding florist, I designed a romantic and feminine wedding that was still effortlessly understated. We used a stunning selection of ivory blooms and touches of palest blue, so that Northbrook Park was abundant with fresh and inspiring blooms. Katie’s bridal bouquet was a real show-stopper, opting for an open and natural design, brimming with ivory roses, spray roses and subtle hints of palest blue delphinium and eucalyptus foliage. Katie and Michael maintained the ‘Something Blue’ colour scheme throughout the rest of their celebration, from the bridesmaid gowns right through to the beautiful tablecloths. The bridal party held bouquets that were smaller versions of Katie’s, while the flower girls had ivory and soft blue flowers adorned in their hairstyles. Their aisle style was just exquisite and the bridal party looked like an utter vision.
I adore working at Northbrook Park, a Grade II listed, eighteenth-century manor house in Surrey. The venue offers an array of stunning spaces, including the Vine Room and the Orangery. Within this enchanting Hampshire wedding venue includes a statement fireplace that I fully dressed with a delectable combination of hydrangeas, roses, delphiniums and falling eucalyptus branches. We then moved this to fill the top table for the reception – a fabulous example of how you can re-use the flowers throughout your entire wedding day. Katie and Mike wanted to decorate the room with tall table centrepieces of glass vases and dreamy decorations in ivory and pale blue. Antique golden cutlery and our vintage gold tea lights complemented the tablescapes, adding a dash of luxury to their gorgeous wedding!
