H&W – A Pastel Summer Wedding

I can't express enough how utterly amazing Mad Lilies were! The team were an absolute joy to work with and produced some stunning displays which perfectly fitted our brief and colour scheme. All so incredibly talented! The team worked so hard to design and position beautiful flowers throughout our venue, which lifted and tied together the whole day with our wildflower theme. Every single one of our guests commented on how amazing and beautiful the flowers were, they really did make the day extra special.” Hattie and Will

 

Hattie & Will’s beautiful wedding at Botley Hill Barn was a joy to design for. We worked with a Summer pastel colour palette ranging from blush and dusky pink to powder blues, whites and lilacs perfectly complemented with lush green foliage using a collection of scented British flowers that had a textured look with a sense of tactility. Hattie said: We had a very broad "wild flower" brief for our wedding. Mad Lilies was absolutely fantastic at really getting an understanding of what we liked, and the colours that would match perfectly, to give us the best option for our day. We had absolute confidence in Mad Lilies’ expertise, and honestly, the end result just blew us away, and was beyond our wildest expectations!” 

 

Ceremonies at Botley Hill Barn take place in the red bricked Oakley Barn. The intimate space is finished perfectly with a runner of flowers across the mantlepiece at the front of the barn, where the Bride and Groom meet to make their vows. We used flowers from Hattie’s bouquet in the runner and then repurposed it after the ceremony to create an incredible canopy over the top table. The main barn itself at Botley Hill is breathtaking. With an entire wall of glass looking out on to the rolling countryside, there’s no wonder it’s become such a favourite wedding venue. We love it! Hattie and Will chose an eclectic mix of bottles filled with wild flowers to dress the long guest tables. “All of our guests commented on the flowers, they really were beautiful and completed the set up perfectly” Hattie. 

 

We love what we do so much, from working with couples before their wedding to the day itself and bringing the vision to life, so when we receive comments like these it really does put the biggest smile on our faces! “From the very initial research stages, Mad Lilies immediately stood out to us as the perfect option. We wanted to use local suppliers, who were super personal and friendly, and they didn't disappoint! It was also really important to us our wedding didn't feel corporate or staged. We had the best experience from start to finish with our wedding flowers, and we loved the whole process. Everyone in Mad Lilies was an absolute joy to work with. We wish we could do it again!” Hattie

 

We like to ask our brides what their best piece of wedding advice they can share, Hattie said: “Take time out of the day, just you two, to digest it and take it all in, and share in the moment. The day goes so quickly!”
