Eucalyptus & Pampas wedding at Botleys Mansion

Maisie & Chris’ Beautifully Organic wedding

This eucalyptus and pampas wedding was brought to us by Maisie and Chris, a lovely lovely couple.   Maisie was really open to new ideas and had such an individual style! We really loved working with her to pull together a really organic and boho, foliage-rich look which was so natural and unpretentious and yet so gorgeous. 

Maisie and her bridesmaids all carried very loose and natural bouquets of roses, spray roses, scented stocks, lisianthus and mixed eucalyptus of several varieties, my favourite being the berried eucalyptus. The wedding was held at Botleys Mansion, in the gorgeous atrium which suited the foliage-rich look perfectly, you might just be in a huge (and rather off-the-scale-elegant) greenhouse. 

As a ceremony backdrop we created a freestanding draped arch, with bloomy uprights and draped with ethereal ivory tulle, trimmed with long trailing eucalyptus.  Chris used this to hung Maisie’s neon sign which was to be switched on later on in the evening during the party.  The ceremony table was dressed with 2 over-arching  and trailing displays on the ends of the table, leaving room to see Chris & Maisie clearly as they signed the marriage register. 

At the other end, the stairs were styled with very natural organic displays, bursting again with lots of lovely mixed sage green eucalyptus and white flowers including hydrangeas, stocks, roses, lisianthus to name a few.

The theme of a walk down through flowers and foliage continued with a beautiful wedding aisle.  We styled the aisle with long trailing eucalyptus bunches on the floor, with our modern gold geometric lanterns dotted along it, creating a green oasis for the entrance of the bridesmaids, Maisie and her dad, and her really sweet young son who was the page boy.

At the back of the aisle we used 2 tall eucalyptus and pampas grass wedding displays on tall vases, to flank the aisle and frame everyone as they walked down it.  These were 2 of the table centrepieces so we made good use of them first during the ceremony, raising them up on our ivory plinth stands.  The effect was so natural and relaxed, it has to be one of my favourite weddings of the year. 

After the ceremony, the top table was dressed with the ceremony table flowers and the bridesmaids bouquets and additional pretty candles and the rest of the guest tables were dressed with tall displays like the ones used at the back of the wedding aisle. The gorgeous draped arch created a pretty backdrop to the top table and completed the look.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the beautiful photography curtesy of Cheshire based Sarah Horton Photography. A long way from home for Sarah, but so worth the trip – the photos are super light and easy, the whole album almost conveys the relaxed and informal vibe of the whole wedding.  Thank you Maisie for sharing these with us!
