A taste of the countryside and beautiful greenery in London with delicate pastel florals and emerald green bridesmaid dresses. With guests travelling from all over the world to see this couple tie the knot at Morden Hall, a National Trust house with beautiful gardens close to the city. A real family affair with the bride's mother and brother designing and painting the wedding stationery and the groom's sisters playing the piano at the ceremony and handmaking biscuit favours. The bride wasn't afraid to get her hands dirty too, drying the petals of all the bouquets she got in the run up to the big day, in order to use them for confetti! Having grown up in Australia, the bride wanted to incorporate this into the day so a mixture of Australian and English flowers were used throughout creating beautiful delicate displays.

What Made Our Day Unique

Our day was unique to us because it was so personal and family orientated. Liams sisters made our favours, the hand engraved vases and played the piano at our ceremony. My mum painted the floral design used on our stationary and my brother did the graphic design. We felt incredibly loved as our friends and family flew in from all over the world to support us on this incredible day.

Emerald Green Bridesmaid Dresses

Green was the running theme throughout the day. With mismatched emerald green bridesmaid dresses, green decorated handmade favours and a beautiful modern wedding cake with a splash of colour. It suited the venue well, with the National Trust property surrounded by stunning greenery and gardens, providing the perfect country atmosphere for this couple to become husband and wife.

Inspiration & Styling

I grew up in Australia surrounded by lots of native flora and wanted that to reflect in our wedding, with Lilacs and pale Eucalyptus leaves in a soft but wild bouquet and a dark forrest green as the colour for the bridesmaids dresses and groomsmen ties. Our venue and the English flowers in the bouquet gave a more English countryside feeling to show a combination of where Liam and I grew up.
