Real Weddings | Karen & Richard
Karen and Richard had booked their ideal venue, however were looking for a little direction as to how to style the separate areas for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception, and how best to schedule the day. In keeping with the style of the venue we opted for quintessential British “summer garden” theme, enhanced beautifully by an abundance of florals by Megan Lily Floral Design. We were fortunate enough to have gorgeous weather on the day itself, allowing for a beautiful outdoor ceremony in the Rose Garden, and enabling guests to relax and enjoy their surroundings in the grounds between events.
Karen and Richard were an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the whole process, actively involved at each step of the way in making decisions, yet permitting me full creative licence in pulling together the overall "look". The photography was captured perfectly on the day by Martin Dabek, whose images from this wedding were so stunning that they were even featured on The English Wedding Blog!
A big thank you to all suppliers involved in this special day, which was full of love and laughter.
"Caroline was recommended to us by Parsnip Mash and after our first meeting we knew we were going to get along and she put us at ease. She was super efficient at arranging meetings with the suppliers so we could get a complete understanding of what they each had to offer and get the best possible quote, and was always contactable, answering emails quickly and comprehensively. Caroline coordinated supplier deliveries and collections including flowers, garden furniture, and the DJ; she also dressed the venue, and attended the wedding day, making sure everybody was in the right place at the right time. Her calm and friendly personality made a very busy and overwhelming day go without a hitch!"
