We’re so excited to share this breathtaking U.K. wedding from our friends over at Knot & Pop. The historic setting is spectacular and the mix of grand architecture and natural beauty is inspiring at every turn. We’re especially loving all the blue-infused bespoke details like the calligraphy and illustrated stationery by Lamplighter London, custom-dyed napkins, hand-painted tile displays for the custom floral cookies. So much prettiness and lucky for us, it’s all captured by talented Sarah Gawler. You’re going to love it!
from the planner: The moment the couple visited the venue, they fell in love with it and no venue compared. They loved the contrast of the history of the grand manor house where the ceremony was held, with the natural beauty of the grounds and the Great Conservatory that houses exotic plant life under the most beautiful glass houses.
Knowing our bride and groom’s love of blue, this was the perfect marriage of all shades of blue with the beautiful world of botanicals that lent itself so well to the stunning grounds of Syon Park. Inspired by sun prints, we worked with silhouettes of flowers to create a beautifully organic scene. We took our inspiration from an eclectic mix of materials, and textures to give the couple and guests a rich and memorable experience.
A couple never more mindful of their friends and family, and keeping the children entertained, the day was packed full of experiences for all to enjoy – with us even organizing a floristry class for the kids to make floral crowns with Bo Boutique.
The Great Conservatory was the most luxurious of settings with tables adorned in custom dyed napkins, bespoke heart favor ceramics, foliage table numbers and a mix of blue and white glass bottles with beautiful flowers. Children were further treated to goody bags to keep them busy, with lots of botanical and garden inspired goodies inside: ladybird yo-yos, butterfly finger puppets, and flower stickers.
From the ceremony style that mixed beautiful statement floral urns with bespoke paper fans as Order of Service, and a unique sand ceremony, to the edible flowers across canapés, the Bubble Bar for the kids, and the face painter that worked her magic with all manner of floral and botanical inspired designs, this was a wedding and a couple that wanted to enjoy every moment of their big day.
The fun factor was important to the couple, so a Photo Booth back drop was made, covered in a mix of blue floral wallpapers, with a prop box housing lots of fun accessories. The guests also enjoyed “Marryoke”, filmed singing snippets of Pharrell’s Happy, to then be edited into a music video for the couple to remember the fun of the day. Creating more memories for the couple, for an alternative guest book, guests wrote on wooden colored leaves, which were placed into a frame to be put up in the couple’s home as a gorgeous keepsake.
Over two hundred hand painted tiles were made by Knot & Pop, for the most beautiful of painted cookies to lay on. Escort cards were placed upon a bed of foliage, inked in blue, with gorgeous modern calligraphy flourishes by Lamplighter London.
Lounge areas were created with luxurious sofas that contrasted beautifully with wrought iron garden furniture, finished with custom made floral print cushions that now sit pride of place in the couple’s home.
With the opulence of Syon Park the bride wanted to have a dress that suited the surrounds so the Peter Langner dress was the ideal choice with its classic silhouette and delicate lace. The dress was teamed with an embellished sash.
Most memorable moment for the bride:
“From the early morning nerves and getting ready with the girls, to the lovely ceremony and seeing all of our friends and family, and one another for the first time! It was lovely to have a few moments together, just the two of us after the ceremony, to soak it all in. We loved seeing everyone, and each other, smiling from the start of the day right through to the end on the packed dance floor. When we received the photos back we were able to relive the magic and beauty of the day.”
