CHLOE & BARNY WEDDING
A COLOURFUL LUXURY WEDDING AT EURIDGE MANOR, IN THE COTSWOLDS
We planned and designed this modern luxury wedding celebration at one of our favourite Cotswolds wedding venues Euridge Manor, also known by many as "the Lost Orangery". We created a beautiful colourful floral filled outdoor ceremony on the lawn above the venues famous water feature, with guests seated facing towards the aisle to create an intimate garden atmosphere with a wow factor. Bespoke orders of ceremony with a floral pattern and tassels were paired with mini envelopes of dried wildflower confetti with co-ordinating seals.
After the ceremony we led guests into a beautiful courtyard with live music and the most delicious canapés and drinks served by Royal wedding company Spook catering. The gardens of the venue are spectacular and so we allowed a little time for guests to explore whilst formal photos and portraits were being taken.
From here guests were called to dinner, as they entered the main ballroom for the "wedding breakfast". We designed this to be in keeping with the gardens and interiors of the manor house, as well as inspired by the couples aesthetic with a fresh youthful colour palette, modern decor and lots of details. This space is usually a swimming pool and so it was quite the transformation. Two long tables ran along the length of the room with a giant mirror reflecting back at one end. We used a stone tablecloth paired with a mint green linen napkin, using co-ordinating floral patterns from the main stationery suite on round menus and contrasting circular place names. We ordered bespoke white wicker place mats and a mint green and orange patterned charger plate, combined with classically elegant tableware and lot's of bright delicate florals. The room and linen was scented using room spray which had essential oils from crushed leaves and zest of Bergamot orange tree, the Citrus Aurantium Amara Bergamia. Evoking memories of favourite holidays in the mediterranean. After the speeches guests were surprised with a rendition of a song by the groom, who we arranged a secret band to appear and perform alongside.
After dinner we revealed a secret afterparty upstairs in the orangery room. We used simple white traditional furnishings to offset the deep orange decor, filling the space with pink and orange up-lighters as well as heavier bold florals and decor reminiscent of bohemian Ibiza nightclubs. A live band started the evening entertainment before moving on to a late night DJ, with chilli picante cocktails and espresso martinis. The secret nightclub area was scented using a highly aromatic citrus scent with a neroli, petitgrain and woody base.
Outside we had the most glorious sunset overlooking the grounds of the venue, with firepits and casual seating for guests to gather round. Later in the evening guests were served late night snacks before carriages back to local hotels.
