Drawing inspiration from nature we constructed a log alter in the blessing area of The Woodlands with an abundance of gold wrapped candles, conical vases and different height logs. Some 35 logs, 80 vases, tea light holders and candles went into creating the log alter but it was worth it. We borrowed the table centrepieces to add colour to the backdrop, pretty vintage pressed glass cake stands with gorgeous popping colourful arrangements by Flowers By Philippa, Philippa finished off the alter with a pretty stage of rose petals for the bride and groom to stand on. It didn't end there, we lined the aisle with lanterns, hung colourful parasols from the trees and surrounded the area with huge latex 1 meter balloons.
A whisky barrel table piled high with Vintage china for the guests to enjoy following the ceremony completed the afternoon tea in the woods. Further more Philippa dressed a very pretty bridge with a colourful array of Calla lilies and roses. An abundance of shepherd hooks throughout the Woodland with pretty flower filled jam jars completed the look ...and then it rained!
I have loved Vicki and Ben's enthusiasm for their wedding throughout the planning and on the day they both remained totally unruffled when the heavens decided to open. I applaud Vicki for sticking to her guns and she did go on to enjoy a beautiful Woodland wedding, the odd umbrella did not deter her and they both smiled throughout the day.
