This lovely outdoor wedding at Botleys Mansion really captured the spirit of summer. Using a mix of beautiful summery blooms, lots of roses which are always my favourite, especially garden roses, and of course the beautiful setting of the Botleys garden pavilion. Who could ask for more? I was in wedding flowers heaven.
Our lovely Norwegian bride Malin, introduced to us by her wedding planner Lindy Dowling chose a wilder style bridal bouquet of Dutch roses and specialist Colombian garden roses, pretty spray roses and contrasting apple green viburnum. We added a few veronica sprigs here and there, and surrounded the flowers with a collar of relaxed silvery green eucalyptus, for a laid back look. Her maid of honour carried a matching bouquet and the men wore dusky pink rose buttonholes.
Welcoming guests to Botleys Mansion was a dramatic vintage gold urn centrepiece with summer blooms, including tall snapdragons and stocks, colourful hydrangeas, and a pretty mix of summer colour roses and spray roses. The ceremony was conducted outdoors, outside the stunning garden pavilion, which we dressed with a lavish runner of flowers all along the front. Simple touches like rose petals scatter and storm vases down the aisle completed the look for this informal celebrant ceremony.
Following their beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony at Botleys, the couple had their professional photos thanks to Binky Nixon Photography, who captured some lovely scenes in the beautiful grounds around Botleys.
For the wedding reception and wedding breakfast in the grand Atrium, we dressed the central tables, in the tall ceilinged part of the atrium, mostly with tall antique gold candelabra stands. The rest of the tables including the long oval top table, were styled with an eclectic mix of our lovely gold wedding glassware including candlesticks, vintage bottles, champagne gold tall stemmed votives and lots of mercury glass votives. The effect was really pretty and very relaxed – a perfect fit for our Norwegian couple!
