M & C - An Ethereal Marquee Wedding

27 September 2021

“A heartfelt thank you for all your hard work in creating the most beautiful floral centre-pieces and hanging foliage display for our party. Your vision and hard work paid off as you transformed the marquee into an exquisitely enchanting setting. We loved how the delicate natural colours of whites, creams and greens worked with the elegant candles, creating a statement table display yet not blocking guests’ views, and the hanging branches elevated the scene enhancing a sense of bringing the outside in. We were all so thrilled with the overall effect which perfectly fulfilled my vision for a ‘midsummer night's dream’ with its ethereal quality. We’ve had so many compliments.” Miranda and Charlie.

There’s something so special and personal about a wedding at home. Miranda and Charlie exchanged their vows in an intimate ceremony after their wedding plans were halted by the pandemic. Once restrictions were lifted, they celebrated with family and friends with a wedding party at Miranda’s parents home in Limpsfield, Surrey. 

For the celebration we created a large hanging foliage installation to bring the outside in and compliment the setting of the garden with its beautiful flowerbeds and gorgeous colours. Miranda really loved the combination of different shades of lush green foliage with blousy white and cream flowers for a sophisticated yet romantic look. This colour palette worked perfectly against the white marquee. For the tables we created compote designs using Hygrangea, Lysimachia, Phlox, scented garden Roses, Scabiosa, English Jasmine, Italian Ruscus and Rosemary. The tables were finished off with tall elegant Ester & Erik candles in grey green and white.

Miranda’s best piece of wedding advice is: “Choose the best quality suppliers you can, it takes away any anxiety on the day knowing you're in safe hands. A highlight for us was witnessing how all the suppliers were working together to transform the marquee into a magical scene, it blew me away; seeing all our guests arriving, most of whom we'd not seen for over a year; our first dance; having an incredible final dance with our friends and family on the dance floor - we were all on such a high!”
