For bride’s who have always dreamed of having a country garden wedding, then this wedding is serious GOALS! Not only was it beautifully designed, the level of food and entertainment for guests was fantastic. This bride and groom KNOW how to put on a party!
The super lovely Clare & Tom got married at Clare’s childhood home in Chobham after a gorgeous ceremony at the local church. There were more rose petal confetti than I’ve ever seen and such personal touches to many elements of their day, from hand painted table names by one guest, an order of service illustration by another and not forgetting the wedding car that was driven all the way from Prague by the Bride’s brother for their wedding day It was so easy to see what a great bunch of friends and strong family relations this couple have and all were there to support them on one of the biggest days of their lives.
Clare wore an elegant and floaty bridal gown by Shanna Melville which was adorned with sparkly details. Her shoes by Charles David have to be some of the more ‘fashionista’ I’ve seen, and I NEED a pair in my wardrobe ASAP! Clare’s bridesmaid’s also dazzled in pleated floral dresses from Asos – the perfect match for an English garden party wedding!
Now, lets talk about the FOOD… Where to start? The food was absolutely incredible, provided by the wonderful Mange2 caterers, with more canapés coming out of the kitchen then I’ve ever seen, to a beautiful summery main meal (which I was lucky to eat and boy was my tummy happy!). Georgie and her staff were complete super stars and certainly made everybody’s taste buds very happy indeed. Now to talk about THAT cake by Sebastian Wild….. The look on people’s face when they were made aware that actually the lovely display of flower pots with garden herbs sprouting from the top of the (Oreo cookie) soil were in fact CAKE, was just brilliant! Yes that’s right, even the flower pots themselves were cakes. Quite simply the most sensational cake-art I, and every guest there, has ever, and will ever see. When you scroll to the images below, see if you can spot the plant pot wedding cake – you won’t believe it until you see Clare & Tom cutting right through it at the end of the post!
The night was finished off with some fantastic dancing to such a great DJ LIVE set put together by Chris Sharp. I had not seen DJ Live before, but I hope to attend a wedding as a guest some time soon so I can party to this insanely fun style of music and band combo.
The last thing to say really is, WHAT an incredible wedding, surrounded by such lovely people. Congratulations to Clare & Tom!
