Botleys Mansion Wedding Romance

Sweet Love Post Covid


I was so looking forward to arranging Holly and Dan’s wedding at Botleys!   They were the most amazing couple to come through the Covid lockdowns still smiling, and Holly was just a dream bride, despite having the postpone the wedding a few times.  I was so relieved for them when all the restrictions finally lifted and they were able to have their day their way, with no limits on guest numbers and no other restrictions. 

Holly and Dan chose a really delicate colour palette of ivory and champagne blush, a beautiful and mellow colour scheme which suits the Green Room at Botleys really well.   The sage green decor with the pale blush ceiling was just a perfect match. I was so so pleased to be able to get hold of the beautifully scented O’Hara garden roses – these were a perfect substitute for the peonies that Holly initially wanted when the wedding was due to be late spring. Post Covid they became like hens’ teeth in rarity value, but in this case it all came good in the end.  I used also some pretty hint-of-blush Saint Brut dianthus which are the most delicate creamy champagne blush colour with just  hint of colour. 

To dress the venue, guests were welcome into the beautiful foyer by a tall vase centrepiece on the central focal table, and 2 more matching displays were used on white pedestal plinths to frame Holly & Dan during the ceremony.  We added simple touches down the aisle to complete the decor in the Green room – chair posies with flowers and sage green eucalyptus on every other row of chairs, petals scatter and Holly’s lanterns. 

For the wedding breakfast in the atrium, most of the guest tables were all dressed with more tall vase centrepieces , while just 2 of the round tables reused the 2 ceremony table flowers to add some variety. Finally, for the top table, we made good use of the bridesmaids bouquets. placing them in pretty vases on a mirror base.
