Somethings happen for a reason and I was lucky enough to meet Jin and Atul at a Wedding Fair when they came to meet their String Quartet and they fell in love with our flower designs. We worked with Jin and Atul from a distance in the early planning stages as they were planning their wedding from their base in Scotland. We later visited their elegant wedding venue The Heath House together to finalise details.
PART ONE OF JIN AND ATUL’S WEDDING – HINDU CEREMONY AT THE HEATH HOUSE
Jin and Atul had an amazing wedding day with 2 celebrations. As we were preparing for the afternoon English ceremony guests and family were already mingling for the first part of this amazing day filled with so much emotion. Atul and his family gathered for the Sehra Bandi ceremony, where the family gathers to pray and attach the Sehra, a heavily embroidered veil, to Atul’s turban. To hear the music and catch a glimpse of procession of the Baraat was so wonderful. We did not create flowers for the morning celebration but just had to share these beautiful images captured so tenderly by Jo Hastings Photography.
PART TWO OF JIN AND ATUL’S WEDDING – CLASSIC ELEGANT ENGLISH FLOWERS AT THE HEATH HOUSE
The wedding day continued with a classic elegant ceremony inside the wonderful The Heath House.
I just love how this bridal bouquet with its blush pink roses and dusty blue thistles for Atul’s Scottish links complement Jin’s beautiful Suzanne Neville wedding gown. She looks the epitome of elegance.
The bridesmaids look so elegant in their full length Two Birds dresses and hand tied bouquets finished with trailing ribbon. Their dress colours picked up the soft blue tone of the thistles in the brides bouquet prefectly.
WEDDING CEREMONY FLOWERS AT THE HEATH HOUSE
Heath House is full of the most amazing antiques and beautiful works of art, the perfect setting for a classic English wedding. The wedding ceremony flowers created a more formal and elegant part of the day with an abundance of blooms,trailing arrangements and footed bowls, all set against the beautiful array of antiques.
WEDDING CENTREPIECES AT THE HEATH HOUSE
The marquee was set for an elegant celebration with tall candelabra and low silver footed bowls. The central top table was decorated with a tall candelabra with a statement floral piece. We added touches of trailing amaranthus, soft lisianthus, dill and spray roses to the mixlurb about how they also have classic English wedding ceremony. The seating plan included favourite teas to link this fusion wedding.
