Elegant Summer Wedding at Chewton Glen

Ian and Claire wanted a classic and romantic theme for their summer wedding at Chewton Glen in the New Forest, with creative lighting that could carry the mood on into the evening…Sam_7247f

Ivory wall drapes instantly transformed this space into an elegant room, with swag overlays adding a romantic touch to the draping.  An ivory background was the perfect choice to beautifully compliment Ian and Claire’s soft, vintage colour scheme, with a touch of sparkle provided by our very popular crystal candelabra.  Though we sadly can’t take credit for the sunshine, this was the perfect way to bring summer inside in a romantic and quintessentially English style…

A row of poseur tables can be both beautiful and practical, encouraging guests over to the large windows looking out over the grounds so as to truly make the most of this stunning venue.  These were covered with classic draped ivory in the epitome of traditional wedding styling and secured with gold sparkle ties.  Another way of keeping Ian and Claire’s theme consistent throughout the many assorted spaces in this venue was with muslin entrance drapes, topped off with valances and gold tassel ties, providing a chic aesthetic whilst elegantly leading guests from one room to another…



And what better way to lead guests from day into night than under enchanting twisted willow archways?  These were bespoke frameworks tailored to fit the space, decorated with warm white pealights and vintage lanterns that begin to set the atmosphere for a magical summers evening.  Through the archways you can just catch a glimpse of the pealight backdrop that was the main feature of the next room.  This pealight backdrop is both subtle and striking, in keeping with Ian and Claire’s classic theme, whilst also setting the party mood…


Festoon lights and white paper lanterns were the perfect choice to bring the ambience outside and set the stage for a complete change of theme with an Ibiza-style pool party.  Our large illuminated LOVE letters also created a dramatic focal point for this fun outdoor space and a party atmosphere that ensured festivities went on well into the following morning!
