Such a success!

Well, what a beautiful autumnal fayre we had, the house and Gillyflower were decorated to perfection in both a wild and whimsical woodland theme, and a modern, structured neon explosion; the most beautiful balance of natural and fun which summed us up flawlessly.

Some of our absolute favourite suppliers and friends gathered to show us all how stunning autumnal weddings can be, along with a gang of the best wedding photographers known to man, who very kindly documented the day- thank you so much to Nikki Cooper, Rob Tarren and Laura Power! Here’s some of the inspiration they captured on film...

Inside the house

Rebel & The Rose, Hollie Freeland and Lovestruck creative pulled off the ultimate 'old meets new' wedding tablescape in the drawing room. Neon pink, tropical leaves and  acrylic wedding menus looked surprisingly at home against our backdrop of ancient ancestors...

Drinks flowed (delicious autumnal prosecco with berries and flavoured gin!) and Emerald paper design looked very cosy painting beautiful watercolours in the corner.

I licked you so you're mine

Lovestruck creative's fabulous bespoke neon sign went down a treat, Adele made sure everyone knew it really was 'licked' not 'picked' by remaining there with her tongue out for the duration (no not really)

We were so honoured to have Abi Phillips playing us all down the aisle! What a voice...

Nero String Quartet were back with their emotive string soundscapes, didn't they blend beautifully and time themselves wonderfully with Abi?

Sadly none of our photographer friends seemed to step foot in the smoking room to find the beautiful dresses by My Eden, they were something to behold.

The Coach House

The sun came out and shone warmly through the coach house windows putting a spotlight on Cotswolds Spa and her fantastic prize draw... Did you enter? We'd love to know who won!

Amber Persia

As soon as you stepped foot in The Gillyflower the explosion of flowers and foliage by the incredible Amber Persia was apparent...

But the stunning autumnal feast for the eyes didn't stop, with endless flowers, berries and autumn fruit, and hundreds of candles.

Thank you Amber Persia, what a transformation!!
