Botanical Wedding Flowers at Hampton Court House
I really loved working on Natasha and Harry’s botanical wedding flowers at their Hampton Court House wedding. Natasha and her mum met with many many moons ago to go through the look for the wedding flowers and I instantly fell in love with their natural, informal, botanical style wedding theme. Natasha chose a gorgeous pale champagne gold colour scheme for her bridesmaids, but wanted an all ivory and green wedding when it came to flowers, the only exception being the splash of nude pink Quicksand roses used in the bouquets. Everything else was a mixture of ivory blooms including hydrangeas, roses, lisianthus, scented stocks, tulips, ranunculus and astilbe, all in beautiful classic ivory, offset by masses of wild and loose foliage including ferns and ivy, gold coral fern, eucalyptus, pistache and many more
The day stated off very early with a beautiful set up at St Barnabas Church in Ranmore near Dorking, right behind Denbies Estate. We dressed the beautiful lytch gate with a gorgeous floral arch, and inside, we created two dramatic gold urns centrepieces to flank the ceremony area. The pews were styled with loose bunches of flowers with lots of trailing ivy, and another beautiful final centrepiece decorated the font. A beautiful welcome for the wedding party arriving at the church!
Natasha and Harry look so happy coming out of the church, I really love this shot! Taken just in the nick of time before the heavens open…
Following a quick downpour just as the wedding party left the church, hence sadly not many photos outside the beautiful church after the ceremony, the wedding guests were transported on a vintage red London bus to Hampton Court House, with Natasha and Harry beating the crowds in a beautiful vintage motor. In true British weather style, the rain has stopped and all is fine again as the guests arrive at Hampton Court House.
The guests were welcome to Hampton Court House by a beautifully decorated front of house, where we styled the two huge fireplaces with some long trailing displays. As the guests made their way downstairs to the ballroom, they passed via the gorgeous stairs, dressed with flowers and foliage garlands trailing around the stairs balustrade, with lots of candlelit storm vases lining the steps. We also created a statement huge hanging ivy candelabra for the centre of the light and airy conservatory, and draped the beautiful arched door with a flower arch. We framed this with the two gorgeous gold urn centrepieces from the front of the church, and managed to get a lovely shot of Natasha…
The grand reception room was dressed with a mix of tall statement gold candelabra centrepieces, and low table displays of clusters champagne gold vases and vintage votives. The church arch was brought over and reused on the stage behind Harry & Natasha. These white & green Hampton Court House wedding flowers suited the dramatic colour scheme so well!
