After many months of planning, we saw our vision come alive.
Tuesday 3rd May an incredible team of wedding suppliers all came together to deliver a beautiful renaissance inspired styled shoot at one of the best UK wedding venues in the Cotswolds, Euridge Manor.
Every single detail of this shoot was carefully planned, from stationary, the wedding cake and a mass of seasonal florals.
The grounds at Euridge are sure to leave you breathless, from the incredible boat house, Georgian style architecture and their carefully curated gardens. This wedding venue is an absolute oasis, and I cannot wait to return.
The amazing thing about the wedding industry is the incredible relationships you build with fellow suppliers. You quickly learn who’s work aligns with yours, and the perfect people to execute the job. After months of communication, team work, an inspirational portfolio was created by the planner and lead photographer of the shoot, Paulina Walsh. I would personally like to thank Paulina for bringing me along on this incredible journey with her, which allowed me to discover Euridge.
The Castle Arch
The castle arch at Euridge, is definitely one of the most picture perfect locations for ceremony pictures. With a sparkling hanging crystal chandelier it is undoubtably elegant and luxurious adding charm and romantic aesthetic for any wedding shot.
Euridge is pretty well known for its spectacular boathouse. Surrounded by crystal blue waters, looked upon by guests from its wisteria walls on the Italian style terrace.
The Lost Orangery
With the beautiful rays of sunshine, crystal chandeliers, surrounded by the beautiful architecture and evergreen palms, the lost orangery created the perfect setting for a romantic dinner. However, this location would be perfect for almost any wedding setting, whether it be the wedding breakfast or your wedding ceremony.
The flowers were carefully selected to create the overall feel for the renaissance styled shoot. Each floral instalment and urn arrangement was thought out thoroughly, enabling them to be re-purposed in multiple locations, as if it were a real wedding day. The inspiration for the flowers selected came down to numerous things. The floral décor that was going to be created in the desired locations, I predict may be one of the future wedding trends to come over the next year and wedding season of 2023 but also flowers that worked with the overall concept and Euridge Manor. It is within my business ethos as a wedding florist to work with the seasons and what nature is producing at this time of year to achieve an organic look, whilst working sustainably .
The overall colour palette was inspired by the beauty and colours of spring flowers. Gorgeous garden roses in shades of peach, toffees and soft yellows were chosen to symbolise love and add texture to the designs. Spring is the perfect time for butterfly ranunculus and tulips, these were included in the bridal bouquet to add whimsical elegance, along with white scabious, nothing says elegant more than crisp white, delicate flowers.
With the use of tall flower stems such as alliums, delphiniums and forsythia, a floral arch was created to perfectly frame the iconic castle arch. The soft blues of the delphiniums added a contrasting colour against the yellow forsythia, and gave off the perfect essence of spring. The arch was later repurposed to the boathouse and arranged differently, in a way that worked with the surroundings. Once we had moved to the boathouse, I also introduced a dramatic urn arrangement, which worked wholly with the renaissance theme and came a part of an overall décor piece.
For the orangery table setting, I took quite a modern approach to the designs. Creating floral meadows within the centre of the table. The flowers selected were really quite monochromatic, with the use of colours very much similar, this created a large impact for a small space.
The colours worked in unity of the orangery walls, whilst adding a romantic and elegant vibe for the top table and such a stunning wedding venue.
