Weddings: Best of 2016!

As 2017 begins, we thought it would be a great time to look back over the past year and remember some of the wonderful weddings we’ve worked on. Though there were so many to choose from, we’ve managed to pick a small few that stood out for us with results that were especially stunning!

A Midsummer Nights Dream at Ramster Hall

This fun and whimsical wedding at Ramster Hall just goes to show how you can take a popular theme and still come up with something incredibly original.  The Shakespearean-style wooden beams of the Long Hall were a great starting point, but key to the success of this look was the abundance of greenery and foliage. We provided Ivy Garlands, which we had twisting round our Iron Table Candelabra and Natural Willow Trees, plus Oak and Birch Branches with Warm Pealights positioned around the space.  Wooden Slice Table Centrepieces are perfect for finishing off any rustic or woodland aesthetic, and the twinkling overhead Pealight Canopy (here supplied by the venue) lifted the space into something truly magical! Make sure to check out the Instagram and YouTube posts for this wedding too, they are not to be missed…

Ethereal Draping at Morden Hall

We loved the understated elegance our White Muslin Drapes brought to this lovely ceremony at Morden Hall. In such a bright, airy venue, white ceiling drapes were the perfect choice of decor to create a simple yet stunning impact. We also provided a matching Muslin Doordrape with a Swagged Valance for the ceremony backdrop, where some boldly coloured floral arrangements complimented the clean and minimal aesthetic. Sometimes less can be more! (Only sometimes…)

Wisteria and Hanging Lanterns at The Brewery, London

 At The Brewery in London this year we achieved something spectacular – recreating a summers evening indoors! This involved a meticulously planned installation where we suspended our Large Ivory Paper Lanterns and Vintage-Style Lace Lanterns on a wire matrix, along with lots of Artificial Wisteria and Amaranthus. Dreamy!

 Dramatic Draping at Pennyhill Park

And finally, for this lovely wedding at Pennyhill Park we came up with much more extensive draping solutions. As these ‘before and after’ images will show, when we say we transform venues, we really mean it! Here we provided full Wall and Ceiling Drapes to the room along with a Pealight Backdrop, with stunning results.
