Maree and Dan – a Spring wedding in the Cotswolds
As I head towards my last wedding styling of the year in a few days, I am delighted to have received the images from one of my first – that of Maree and Dan at the beautiful, newly refurbished Lower Slaughter Manor in April. This wedding was a joy to work on from start to finish – despite not meeting the couple in person until the actual day of the wedding! We started planning and designing the wedding over Skype and phone last year as Maree and Dan flitted around the globe from Seoul to Dubai (ending up in Yorkshire!). Despite not being in the same room I immediately clicked with this laid back couple of trusted me with their ideas and let me run with it.
My first port of call was Jodie at Acacia – I knew her love for bohemian, wild and interesting blooms was exactly the style that Maree envisaged for her bouquet (along with some of my silk ribbons), plus the colour schemes of yellows and navy were always going to be a colour choice that Jodie would adore creating something special for. The bouquet and floral crowns met with adoration from Maree on the day, and the table centrepieces reflected the overall scheme to perfection.
With the weather looking a little unpredictable we opted for some bright brollies just in case! They came in handy for the short walk between the church and the Manor.
With plenty of tealights and candlesticks (I cannot ever get enough of candlelight!) and the stationery made by a friend, the whole look came together seamlessly with the new stunning décor at the Manor (a bit of a challenge as it only reopened a short whole before their wedding!).
I will miss working with this gorgeous pair – wishing them every happiness together as they start their new adventures back in England.
