We started planning S&C’s wedding for Bordeaux, France before Covid hit. Having been through two postponements, they decided it was time to move their French wedding to their UK family farm on a hilltop in Hampshire where our Groom grew up.
They were rewarded with the most beautiful sunshine on their wedding day so we were able to hold the ceremony outside with a flower filled broken arch facing the incredible view of the South Downs, where S&C had their symbolic ceremony.
French touches were weaved into the day through French cheese and wine as well as having French music playing during dinner.
We worked with a lovely colour palette, using tones of pinks, whites and a touch of warmth within the foliage. Keeping the tables quite neutral and simple with dark grey tablecloths, perspex signage and white cheesecloth napkins tied with twine and a sprig of eucalyptus.
We brought in a marquee and a beautiful Sperry tent for S&C's 130 guests to dine in where they sat beneath festoon lights and a cloud of flowers, with the sides of the marquee rolled up so they were surrounded by the countryside.
To inject a bit of S&C’s energy into the party, they held a Jägerbomb moment and blew us away with an epic first dance. A day to remember.
WE TRULY DID STRIKE GOLD WITH HOLLY
"Words can't begin to express how grateful we were to have had Holly by our sides through our wedding journey - particularly with all the challenges that presented themselves planning a wedding during a pandemic. With Covid leading to three rearranged weddings, changing suppliers, cancellations and rebookings, Holly made the whole process bearable and possible, in what could have been a disaster. From start to finish she went above and beyond to make all our dreams become a reality. Everyday for two years, Holly worked tirelessly to answer and resolve any queries, planning our wedding with efficiency second to none. She has a wealth of contacts amongst suppliers who all share the same high standards that she upholds. They all went the extra mile for us but that was also down to the great working relationship they all clearly had with Holly. The day ran seamlessly, with every detail attended to, it was simply the best day of our lives. For the two of us working long hours, a wedding planner seemed like a no-brainer, but we truly did strike gold with Holly and feel privileged to have also gained a friend. I cannot recommend her enough - she is the BEST. Thank you Holly!!!!"
