Charlotte and Ricky were married on 30 July 2022 at Gaynes Park. They went for classic all whites for their flowers, which included roses, spray roses, stocks, scabious and astilbe. We also used an abundance of eucalyptus and a few dahlias cut from the cutting garden.
Charlotte's bouquet was beautiful, with trailing ivory satin ribbon to finish it off. And with the stocks in there it had the most lovely fragrance!
The two bridesmaids carried smaller versions of Charlotte's bouquet.
Ricky's buttonhole featured spray roses, astilbe, gypsophila and foliage.
The other men wore smaller buttonholes with just a single spray rose and no astilbe, all finished with ivory ribbon to match the bouquets.
At the venue we decorated the welcome sign and a crate display outside the orangery - I love how the couple had the crates personalised, it makes for a lovely keepsake after the wedding.
Inside the orangery the ceremony area was beautiful - from the back wall we hung white lanterns with flowers and foliage cascading out of them. I painstakingly took all of the glass out of the lanterns, but this design is already proving to be popular with other couples so I'm not going to rush to put it back! How lovely does it look?! The trailing jasmine just finishes them off perfectly.
Along the ceremony table we placed a garland with white roses running throughout, and the chairs were adorned with flowers to match - larger ones for the bride and groom's chairs and smaller ones for the guests.
The barn at Gaynes Park is so lovely on it's own that you don't have to get too carried away with decor in here. Charlotte and Ricky kept it quite simple with candles in glass vases atop a log slice, surrounded by foliage and white flowers.
The top table featured three separate garlands - the centre part was lifted out to place on the registrars table, and could then be moved over after the ceremony and placed back on the top table. It all went together seamlessly, with roses and candles running throughout. We also placed some vases for the bouquets to be placed into after the photographs as additional decor.
A closer look at the table centrepieces - we used a mix of pillar and floating candles which I think worked really nicely, to give a classic, elegant look.
We also provided 90 sprigs of eucalyptus which the venue then placed on each setting.
The stunning cake was made by Sticky Fingers Cake Co. and we provided fresh flowers and sprigs of foliage for Lou to decorate it with- how lovely does it look!
I haven't seen any of the professional shots yet but here's just a little preview of the happy couple courtesy of the bride:
I hope Charlotte and Ricky had a lovely day!
