So many of us dream of our perfect wedding from when we’re young, and while our vision can change (I no longer want to walk up the aisle in a Princess Fiona-esque medieval gown!) the overall picture of your dream day may never falter.

And when it comes to turning your vision into a wedding day reality, Natalie and Mark did it beautifully.

Marrying at the luxurious Stapleford Park, a country house in England, their romantic white and blush wedding was exactly how Natalie had always pictured it, and on hand to capture all the opulent decor and chic style, were Kate and Kev of Depict Photography.

With a backdrop of white hydrangeas and blush roses, and a scentscape of orange blossom and rose, Natalie and Mark’s wedding was styled with wow factor in mind.

Working with their planners, The Angels, their venue was dripping in chic touches from crystal-drapped candelabras to dramatic floral arrangements.

But the style is where this wedding really sets itself apart. Natalie was impossibly glamorous in her strapless, mermaid-style Vera Wang wedding dress, her bridesmaids were beautiful in blush Twobirds gowns, and the little ones, utterly adorable, in made-to-measure tutu flower girl dresses. And not forgetting the groom, Mark was dashing in a navy, Hugo Boss three piece suit.

Lavish, ornate, and super gorgeous, we think you guys are going to love this fabulous English wedding…

Our Wedding

My wedding was exactly what I’d always dreamed of.

We were lucky to have The Angels wedding planners on board to help with our wedding planning. The theme I wanted for my wedding was romantic blush with pinks, ivory, peach and, apricot roses and hydrangeas.

I chose soft beautiful feminine colours.

The Flowers

I chose a mixture of roses and hydrangeas, my two favourite flowers. My bouquet was a mixture of blush coloured roses and hydrangeas and the bridesmaids were ivory hydrangeas.

We had white hydrangeas only, in the orangery for the ceremony. Then blush roses and hydrangeas during the reception.

We wanted the ceremony to look different to the reception room to create a wow!

So we kept the ceremony flowers simple with big balls of white hydrangeas with white rose petals lining the aisle.

The Children

We chose to not invite children to our wedding apart from niece and nephews as between us, we had a lot. We had a beautiful children tables with custom made activity packs by Kirsty Jepson at Rae & Rose Weddings.

The kids loved them. Such a good idea.

Kirsty also made the little flower girls beautiful rose flower balls.

The Decor & Details

I knew I always wanted huge flower ball centre pieces for our reception breakfast, The bigger the better. We also incorporated some diamante to go with the three extra large chandeliers in the reception room.

We had a mixture of extra large flower ball centre pieces and candelabras with matching flowers around the bottom. The Angels arranged hanging diamante from all the center-pieces.

So, gorgeous, right? We love rustic DIY weddings, but sometimes a little luxury and decadence is just as romantic, personal, and chic.

Thanks so much to Depict Photography, and our newlyweds, Natalie and Mark for sharing their beautiful wedding day with us.
