Nestled in the Hampshire countryside, Northbrook Park is an 18th century manor house that sits amidst impressive grounds. With its endless charm and photograph opportunities aplenty, it provided the perfect backdrop to create a lasting floral impression for Sophie and Saul’s wedding day. With The Surrey Wedding Company on hand to ensure the day ran like clockwork and the talented Charlotte Bryer-Ash Photography there to capture every beautiful moment as it unfolded, it really was a day to remember. Immerse yourself in an array of floral delights as we enjoy a snippet of Sophie and Saul’s ultra-romantic wedding day. From the Vine Room to the Walled Gardens and Orangery, their day is brimming with details you’ll want to steal for your very own special day.
Sophie looked utterly breath-taking in a lace dress with a subtle mermaid silhouette, featuring white button detailing that glided down the back of her gown, leading to a sweeping train. The bride’s hair was styled in a half-up half-down style, with loose curls brilliantly framing her radiant smile. Sophie carried a mixed bridal bouquet, overflowing with luscious white roses, indulgent scented peonies and delicate gypsophelia with a touch of blush spray roses. Her beautiful bridesmaids completed the vision, holding smaller versions of the bride’s magnificent bouquet as they made their way down the aisle. Saul looked stylish in a blue suit; his white rose buttonhole stood out against the suit’s colour. His blush tie complimented the bridal bouquet effortlessly, creating the perfect union for their floral design.
Sophie and Saul opted to hold their ceremony in the enchanting Vine Room at Northbrook Park. As their luxury wedding florist, my team and I decorated the space with an elegant scheme of all white florals, lots of leafy foliage, and the indulgent scent of eucalyptus. The couple wanted to make the most of the fireplace, so we created a true statement piece, layering it with a magnitude of glass cylinders and chapel candles that effortlessly crafted a sense of sophisticated romance. I added tall white delphiniums to the grand mantlepiece arrangement for an extra dose of drama and glamour. Sophie glided down the aisle lined with glass hurricane lamps and hundreds of glorious petals. Guests looked on as the perfect couple said their vows between symmetrical white floral urns overflowing with cascading eucalyptus and white florals – a spectacular ceremony setting to say, ‘I Do’.
Going through to the Walled Garden, guests were treated to a sublime sensory surprise as they walked between a curtain of hanging pure white roses on pristine ribbons which gracefully glided with the light summer breeze. A unique ethereal touch surrounding guests in the love shared between the happy couple.
Sophie, Saul, and their loved ones moved into the Orangery for the reception. Three long banquet tables continued the timeless aesthetic of the day. Guests’ eyes were drawn to undulating glass vases of different heights, filled with white flowers of roses, peonies, phlox, stock, scabiosa and spray roses with eucalyptus. The impressive arrangements were illuminated by tall crystal candle holders holding ivory candles and a sea of glass lights that bathed the sophisticated tablescapes in soft flickering candlelight. It really was the ultimate set-up for Sophie and Saul to enjoy White Truffle’s delicious catering before the cutting of an equally spectacular cake created by Monica Cakes.
This dreamy floral scheme, magnificent venue and the undeniable feeling of romance transported Sophie and Saul thought their special day. It’s no wonder it was such a pleasure to create the couple’s luxury wedding day florals at Northbrook Park…
