The video I posted yesterday featuring a wedding I did in May prompted me to finally publish the blog on this beautiful & joyful spring wedding. So here is the story…………
The couple Ope & Gbemi wanted a fresh, spring & elegant wedding and they entrusted the design & management of their wedding to Cedar Events
The wedding was held at a beautiful country house Micklefield Hall with lovely views and stunning grounds, Micklefield Hall is an idyllic setting for a spring wedding. The privately owned house and the extensive gardens – with their traditional herbaceous borders and enchanting water features made for the perfect backdrop for the spring time wedding.
The couple’s colours of choice were lemon yellow, lime and gold and it was just the right combination of colours for the beautiful marquee that accommodated 320 guests comfortably.
The ceremony took place outdoors under a large marquee, there were two large pedestal floral arrangement using tulip, calla lilies, foliage and lemon.
Drinks reception followed after the ceremony on the terrace garden where the couple and their guests enjoyed canapés by Favour Catering & Events and champagne while being serenaded by a saxophonist, Wale the great.
At the end of the drinks reception, guests were ushered to the reception marquee for the wedding reception
The tables were named after writers of books the couple had read
The marquee had an array of fresh yellow tulips and slices of lemon in vases invoking a sense of freshness and lightness.
Small round white wax candles were placed were around each centrepiece to give a romantic air to each table and spread a soft light. For a touch of elegance, yellow ribbons were tied around the napkins.
The couple had a ‘sweetheart table’ which was decorated with Garland arrangement of tulips, lemons, calla lilies and foliage
