Timeless London Wedding
5th Dec 2022 | Real Life Weddings | Written by Marianne
This London wedding was a masterclass in how to do timeless luxury elegantly. The venue 10-11 Carlton House Terrace is a stunning Georgian venue that has impressive features throughout making it a pleasure to dress.
Scott & Paul’s London Wedding
I immediately clicked with S&P who have a genuine love for London and understood their style and vision. My brief was to achieve luxurious, impactful displays that would wow their guests without being too flower heavy at their city wedding.
I personally love foliages, naturalistic designs and organic shapes so this was a dream.
Also, I was tasked with including a nod to Paul’s Italian heritage. As well using olive branches throughout I added geranium leaf to the table centres.
As a result, the subtle citrus scent was reminiscent for me of long, warm Italian summer evenings eating alfresco.
Luxurious City Wedding
Every wedding needs a statement piece and this wedding had plenty!
The “wow” Entrance piece set the tone for the day- a huge 14ft asymmetric foliage arch which had floor-standing displays on the steps leading up to it were filled with soft white summer florals like larkspur and ammi.
The staircase of dreams. I always tell my clients that a floral staircase is an experience as much as a visual highlight for the day. Walking up and down it is unlike anything your guests would have experienced before, it’s magical. And of course it’s a fantastic conversation starter and a back drop for everyone’s photos. This was packed with seasonal foliages and soft white flowers such as delphinium, cow parsley, lisanathus, dahlia.
The Ceremony display was a sensation
The focal point being a huge asymmetric mantelpiece display complemented by matching floor standing pieces below and two huge urns on each side. Also, loots and lots of floating candles in mixed height complete the look.
Scott and Paul wanted an informal yet elegant wedding breakfast, so low, open antique gold bowls were perfect with mixed foliages and pretty summer flowers spilling out. Therefore, I loved adding herbs to these as well the geranium leaf and olive. The ‘less is more” approach to the florals meant the matching candlesticks and beautiful detailing on the place cards and napkins tied everything together.
I hope you have enjoyed reading about this London wedding as much as I have writing about it!
