Hengrave Hall Open Day Autumn 2016

Hengrave Hall open evening
We’ve been working at top wedding venue Hengrave Hall since it opened and are still the only florist the incredibly sought after venue recommends to its couples.
For the regular open evenings, we get the chance to really show how the lovely stately home looks when it is adorned with beautiful wedding flowers.
Danny decided on a colour scheme of whites with touches of mauve and lilac for the latest showcase event and introduced some new props into the Long Gallery.
Our new crystal stands were used for the lower displays – the cut glass catching the light perfectly. On top of the stands were dome-like designs filled with summery flowers such as stocks, roses, scabious and delphinium.
For the remaining tables he chose tall, elegant lily vases topped with gorgeous ball-like displays which echoed the low designs but were finished with hanging amaranths to give a cascading effect to the finished result.
For the top table a traditional long low display following the floral theme took centre stage in the middle. But the display was flanked with larger glass urns decorated with domes of flowers – making the top table a real focal point of the room.
But we saved our most dramatic work for Hengrave’s gorgeous minstrel’s gallery – a waterfall of white orchids, w  hite asparagus fern and hanging glass orbs filled with more phalaenopsis orchids.
It may have been the hottest day of the year – unbelievable for mid September – but the silvery white cascade brought a Narnia-like feel to the banqueting hall below.

Gorgeous Summer Wedding

These great pictures perfectly capture the feel of one of our favourite 2016 weddings. Classic, opulent elegance combined with a relaxed, family feel for the celebrations to mark Elisha and Liam’s special day at the magical Hengrave Hall.

The church was decorated with one of Danny’s trademark arch displays, full of hydrangea and roses – a real stunner. Inside, two tall glass vases topped with magnificent balls of flowers stood either side of the altar, framing the bride and groom.

And gorgeous swags of hydrangea and roses finished with delicious smelling sweet peas were strung around the tops of the graceful pillars.

For the wedding breakfast, the round tables in the Long Gallery were decorated with more tall, elegant lily vases topped with the opulent balls of flowers – the table design was completed with a cluster of smaller hydrangea and rose vases around the base.

The show-stopper proved to be a sumptuous flower frame for the table plan – simply spectacular.

But it was one of those quieter wedding moments, caught here brilliantly by Martin Beard Photography, which made the day – Elisha’s utter delight at her bouquet of white roses. Perfect elegant  simplicity – both the bride and her flowers.
