Time to bring you one of the most exquisite styled shoots we've ever had the pleasure of working on, right from the heart of the beautiful English countryside...
As we prepared everything we needed and headed off to Poundon House in Oxfordshire, we weren't quite ready for the breathtaking location we would be working at. The private home regularly welcomes a variety of weddings and events, and we're not at all surprised. The Edwardian building, stunning grounds and divine views is truly a dream venue. Our mission whilst there was to bring to life a Luxe Asian Fusion Wedding with endless elegance and incredible detail.
While ivory and gold made statements throughout, it was the pastel hues and greenery in our array of floral designs which added softness, luxury, style and grace to an often bright and bold theme.
The showstopper of the day was the tablescape. Vast flowers and precise place settings lined the length of the baby blue table cover. All complimented by beaded French chairs and the backdrop of country house brick, entrenched in history and character.
Our floral creations for the day all presented an abundance of delicate petals, symbolic in their own way. Pink and blue Hydrangea with closely-packed, lacy, star-shaped flower clusters formed pom-pom arrangements in standout metallic, tall vase centrepieces. Chosen as pink represents love and pure emotion while blue stands for forgiveness - the combination symbolising anything that is sincerely heartfelt.
Designed with the sturdy, tall-cut stems, multi-layered petals and oversized heads of pink Avalanche Roses and intensely fragrant, lilac Roses, the opulent flowers brought freshness and meaning to these eye-catching centrepieces. We adore using lilac Roses; they are commonly sent to convey the message that someone has fallen in love at first sight and shows the promise of what's to come - how beautiful is that?!
Evergreen Eucalyptus perfectly placed amongst the blooms added fullness; the leathery leaves hanging vertically in all their glossy green glory. Petite, intricate pink Spray Roses completed both the tall and low vase centrepieces.
Lilac and pink Lisianthus - gentian-like, bell-shaped flowers made multiple appearances in bud vases for increased depth and movement along the table. Their long stems, oval-shaped leaves and wide ruffled petals denote respect, love, appreciation and acceptance making them a must-have for your wedding or event. Paired with the delicately scented, yellow flowers and fern-like leaves of Mimosa, these elegant designs bring a touch of sensitivity and remembrance to the occasion.
We also selected lilac and pink Veronica for our individual vases; tubular spiked florets with glistening green leaves are the ideal accent for a romantic wedding. This pretty, feminine flower and its' long, slender stem is significant for it expresses fidelity of the heart in marriage.
With our gorgeous bride and groom for the day, incredible accessories, impressive gardens, luxurious cakes and dream team of vendors, this styled shoot couldn't have been any more captivating and enchanted.
