Set amongst the English countryside, you’ll find Wotton House, a wedding venue boasting magnificent Italian renaissance gardens. The setting is elegantly engulfed in nature, adorned with Roman temples, and topped off with the peaceful River Tillingbourne flowing through the grounds. Tilly and Charlie couldn’t have chosen a more romantic backdrop for their wedding in September 2022 and it was a pleasure to work with this couple to provide them with luxury florals.
The couple were looking for the essence of classical romance for their wedding flowers, choosing fragrant white blooms that were overflowing with eucalyptus and olive foliage, a subtle nod to the heritage of the venue. Greeting the bride and her bridesmaids in the room where they gathered to get ready for this perfect day, I couldn’t help but enjoy the delicate fragrance of all the fresh flowers, as well as the Mimosa and Cardamom Jo Malone candles that were setting the tone for the day. Nothing brings me more joy than seeing my brides’ reactions to their wedding flowers, and Tilly’s was certainly no exception.
Tilly chose a stunning and opulent design for her bouquet of long-stemmed white roses, complemented by her bridesmaids’ bouquets, which had the addition of golden fern entwined adding a touch of luxe to their wedding flowers. Wearing an off the shoulder gown called ‘Jess’ by Eva Lendel, a Ukranian designer, bought through the amazing Ellie Sanderson team, Tilly’s bouquet was the perfect final touch to her bridal attire. A pair of vintage 1977 Chanel earrings, gifted by her groom-to-be, completed her aisle style, ready to make her entrance at the ceremony.
Wotton House is renowned for hosting stunning ceremonies in their Old Library, with its spectacular high ceilings, marble fireplace and 17th Century pillars. Tilly and Charlie had one of the most memorable ceremonies imaginable, where we dressed the venue with tall translucent vases brimming with ivory hydrangeas, Mallows and white roses engulfed in green foliage. Overhead, fairy lights twinkled as Tilly walked down the aisle, where a warm glow and undeniable feeling of love filled the room. A matching flower piece gracefully adorned their ceremony table, effortlessly tying their floral theme together.
Walking into their reception in the Evelyn Suite surrounded by their favourite people, Charlie and Tilly chose to carefully coordinate their table centrepieces to align with the rest of the floral design. The flowers chosen by the couple were the perfect fit for the suite, working alongside their on-the-day stationery by Bewilderly that was placed on the tables for guests to enjoy. Candles softly flickered next to the abundance of flowers, and it was clear to see that the lavish décor of the suite was everything the couple had hoped for.
I’ll never tire of looking back at Tilly and Charlie’s wonderful wedding day at Wotton House, it was an honour to bring their floral visions to life through romantic wedding flowers.
