E&P - An Elegant Luxe Marquee Wedding

“I cannot recommend Mad Lilies more highly! Alison and her team have been an absolute delight to work with and together we created a beautiful colour palette for our wedding day. Having a wedding filled with beautiful flower displays and flower arches has been my dream since I could remember and Mad Lilies really listened to what I envisaged and created exactly what I had always dreamt of. They not only did the bouquets, table flowers, hair flowers, suspended flowers above the dance floor but they did the most magnificent arch and meadow of flowers for the aisle and it honestly looked like a fairytale. The team were always so kind and professional, they worked so hard on the days leading up to the wedding and on the wedding itself. They were part of the family by the time the wedding came around and that was exactly what we wanted; a friendly local business who would be super easy to work with. An enormous thank you to Alison and her fantastic team, you made our wedding day perfect!.”  - Elise & Pete


Where do we start with this one? We loved the priority Elise and Pete gave the florals at their wedding giving us the opportunity to get creative on a large scale with everything from bouquets and hair flowers through to an aisle of flowers and a wow-factor arch!


Elise said: “I did have some ideas of what I wanted, I wanted to create a fairytale like meadow of flowers which were soft pastels. I explained what I envisaged and Mad Lilies created the dream for me in such a magnificent way. It was better than I could have imagined! Mad Lilies have always been my favourite florist so there was no doubt in who I would use! They have such unusual and inspiring flowers and they really have a unique vision for floristry.”


We created Elise a bouquet that had a beautifully soft, elegant and feminine feel and her bridesmaids bouquets to complement. They included Scented Garden Roses, Achellia, Astible, Oxypetalum, Phlox, Scented Geranuium Leaves and trailing Jasmine. For the romantic outdoor ceremony we created a living aisle, which naturally flowed up to a magnificent arch at the top of the aisle in front of which, Elise and Pete exchanged their vows. Elise said: “Walking down the living aisle of flowers to meet my husband to be under a floral arch was magical!”


In the marquee for the reception, each table had a design using the same flowers and foliage used in the arch and Elise’s bouquet in low compote  designs and tall gold stands allowing guests to easily chat across. We dressed the marquee ceiling with garlands of Italian Ruscus and above the bar and dance floor we created impressive chandeliers of flowers to bring the whole look together.


Alison said: “It was an absolute honour working with Elise, Pete and their wonderful family. To bring their floral dreams to life gave us so much joy and even the sun came to play making their day absolutely perfect. It was made extra special for us as they are long standing local customers and the wedding took place in our own home town of Banstead. Elise and Pete - thank you for entrusting us with your fairytale we loved every minute of it”
