We Would Travel Clear Across the Globe to Attend This Wedding!

Just like the guests at this celebration, we too would’ve traveled clear across the globe to attend. Because when you’ve got Kim Balasubramaniam at the helm planning a champagne-fueled celebration in the Cotswolds countryside, well we’d say that’s more than worth it. Complete with a stunning garden ceremony it was a day filled with love, fun, and happiness a.k.a the perfect evening in England for them to take back home to Shanghai. See it all captured by Zosia Zacharia Photography in The Vault!

From Zosia Zacharia PhotographyDaisy and Haibin’s wedding was a real international affair, with the bride, groom and all their guests traveling from all sides of the world to the picturesque setting of the Cotswolds. The wedding day started at Lucknam Park hotel and spa – a beautiful Palladian mansion with a sweeping driveway and over 500 acres of parkland. This picture perfect couple wore an Oscar de la Renta gown and a Tom Ford suit; a real touch of glamour in the countryside!

Daisy and Haibin were whisked away in a vintage Rolls Royce adorned with a garland of flowers to the setting for their wedding reception; Valentina’s Lost Orangery. Guests were invited to the celebrations with a stunning invitation by Cutture which featured a 3-D silhouette of the Orangery and couple (there is a photograph of the couple above the water on what looks like a bridge – which is exactly the same as their invitation). A colour palette of palest blush, peach and sage green with a pop of coral and ran throughout every element of the wedding from the stationery to Daisy’s beautiful bouquet.

The Lost Orangery is a completely hidden gem in the Cotswolds countryside – the Orangery and the stunning gardens provided the perfect backdrop for a day’s celebrations; as soon as we saw the venue we knew it would be ideal – it had us as soon as we saw the outdoor chandelier!

During the cocktail hour, which took place by the water, guests who had flown in from around the world, feasted on canapes and champagne to the sounds of an acoustic double bass and guitar duo. Fragrant flowers filled the venue, even decorating a little rowing boat on the lake; Georgia from Westwood Design used English roses, orchids and dahlias in tones of blush, peach and coral which echoed the blooms in the gardens themselves.

The intimate nature of this wedding allowed all the guests to be seated for dinner on one long table in The Orangery. Urns of fragrant flowers and fruit ran along the length of the table and candles placed in antique brass candlesticks completed the look. A personalized menu sat at each place setting and the guests enjoyed a delicious five course wedding breakfast.

The couple were keen for the evening to be a fun affair, so Daisy changed into a gorgeous red Oscar de la Renta mini dress, and popped on some Dolce and Gabbana heels. A close-up magician delighted the guests and we had a jazz band playing in the background.

The party continued long into the night, with some guests even taking to the microphones themselves! A celebration filled with love, fun and happiness and the perfect memory of England to take with them as they start their new life together in Shanghai.

Elegant Equestrian Wedding Inspiration

I’ll be the first to admit I was a total horse-nut as a child (anyone else?!), and have always dreamed of having an equine friend on hand during my Big Day. This inspiration shoot, practically bursting at the seams with British charm (Wellies!), and not one, but two beautiful horses, was all the encouragement I need to keep on dreaming. Click through the gallery here, and you might be having some horsey wedding dreams soon, too!

From Jane Riddell of Planned for PerfectionThis fabulous equestrian shot was taken on location at Wyck Hill House Hotel and Spa, an elegant 18th century Manor House located in the heart of the beautiful English countryside.

Wyck Hill House approached me to help them create a styled wedding shoot that combined its opulence and grandeur with the very essence of Cotswold Life.

Situated in the stunning Gloucestershire countryside, with breath taking views over the rolling hills of The Cotswold, the Manor House is close to the racing town of Cheltenham and the famous Beaufort Polo Club, where Prince’s William and Harry have been known to play, so an equestrian styled shoot seemed rather fitting!

On what turned out to be a rather grey February morning, the roaring log fire and a glow of candle light brought a warmth to the old library and ornate Adams room, whilst the soft blush tones and striking burgundies florals supplied by Stephanie Saunders ensuring an elegant Downton Abbey style back drop…

The beautifully designed stationery by On Cloud Nine, hinted towards the equestrian and country side theme whilst retaining an elegant simplicity and when styled with rustic horseshoes, captured the theme of the shoot perfectly.

The stunning gowns were supplied by The Bridal Room at Broadway, who provided a wonderful mix of satin and lace dresses, offset by gorgeous accessories and complimented beautifully by flowing chiffon bridesmaid dresses from Katherine Allen Bridal and the Cake Chemists provided two incredible wedding cakes.

The winter’s sun made a brief appearance later in the afternoon and the wonderful Laura Power photography was able to capture some bridal shots with the horses, which ended the day perfectly….what better way to spend a day than ‘horsing around’ in the Cotswolds with a team of Cotswold’s finest wedding suppliers!
