When a couple comes to you and describes their wedding day as wanting to be fun, non traditional, pops of colour and a celebration, you know it is going to be a fun day! Katie and Vey came to me after selecting their venue at the Bingham Riverhouse but not knowing where to start with styling it and creating the playful, fun day they wanted to create. They had recently welcomed their second little one into their lives and the idea of planning their wedding day with flowers and details and decor was more then they could handle, which was a PERFECT reason to bring in a wedding planner and stylist! All I can say is, they were beyond a joy to work with. An intimate ceremony at the absolutely stunning Octagon Room in the Orleans Gallery , a boat ride along the Thames, drinks in the Garden followed by the party inside the newly refurbished Riverhouse Riverside room, oh and lets not forget an afternoon full of party activities for the little ones supplied by the wonderful The Little Top I think the day was the perfect mix of family, friends, celebration and fun!
The couple encouraged their guests to wear sunny colourful shades on the wedding day. The lovely citrus hued bridesmaid dress was the perfect colour for their day! You know it is going to be a fun wedding when the couple asks the designer to sketch a custom Llama couple on their programs! Jennifer’s Paper you brought their brief to life!
Bubblegum Balloons and Bloomologie colloborated for the perfect photo backdrop in the garden. A bright and colourful bench that incorporated their colour scheme perfectly.
The newly refurbished River Room had a POP of colour with the change of linens, glassware and flowers that we added. A little touch of details and it was colourful without being too bright! And how about the great new chairs at the venue, I love these! Bloomologie created gorgeous meadows that we added to the ceremony and then added throughout the dinner which were perfect summery and cheerful!
To add a bit of fun we tied the escort cards on a “bird tree”, which most guests ended up clipping to their attire for the day as a fun accessory. Because the kids were a huge part of the day, we decided to add a fun element to their escort card and gave them tambourines which they shook as the Bride and Groom entered the reception. They were a fun takeaway gift for kids at the end of the day as well!
See, the kids activities were even enjoyed by the adults! Hello adorable pink guitar!
When a client tells you their sister will make the cake you sometimes question what will arrive, however this one was ACE! Look at the gorgeous watercolour cake that the brides sister created for big day, so sweet! And the lovely Clare with Little Bear Cakery added on some beautiful and delicious desserts to bring the entire dessert table together. It was an abundance of treats for everyone!
Thank you to Katie and Vey for having me be a big part of your wedding day. It was such a pleasure! Oh …..and did I mention the bride wore pink. Not just a smidge, a cloud of pink tulle that was fab!
