30 May Intimate English Garden Wedding
After over a year of postponements, uncertainty and turmoil, 17th April was a very special date for Bunting & Willow! Not only was it my first wedding of 2021, but the groom is also my cousin! It was an absolute joy to style this intimate english garden wedding, as the smaller numbers and family connection made it feel so special.
The lovely couple Cherise & Keaton met at school and after 5 years of being together, he proposed in Iceland in January 2020.
With the ever-changing Covid rules, all they wanted was to get married one way or another! Their original plan to marry in Cyprus changed a few times, evolving through a tipi wedding. They finally married at Weston Hall in an intimate ceremony, followed by an elegant English garden wedding breakfast in the gardens of the Hall.
We dressed the ceremony room with our hexagonal backdrop featuring flowers by Lilac & Wild, which we then moved outside to frame the couple’s sweetheart table at the wedding breakfast. This versatile piece is perfect for so many different wedding styles!
The couple asked us for a relaxed and natural style with elegance, in classic whites and greens. It looked beautiful in the garden setting, and they had a wonderful day along with 15 of their closest family and friends. We dressed the Hall’s outdoor benches in white and greens and draped Chiavari chairs with white chiffons with simple green adornments.
Cherise’s bouquet by Lilac & Wild was foliage heavy along with the rest of the florals, and featured lilies as they have personal meaning.
The couple looked perfect, with the bride in a dress from Dress Me Pretty in Hinckley and the groom dashing in Marc Darcy. Hair and makeup were by NB Hair and Mili Fox Makeup, and the couple posed with champagne in a VW Camper from Nothing But Wedding Cars. Their elegant cake matched the theming, from Cake Design by Pamela.
I love doing these intimate weddings as they feel so special. Wishing the happy couple every happiness!
