Set in 60 acres of Woodland, Evenley Wood Garden set the scene for this picturesque wedding. Featuring a red theme running throughout the two days, Pia and Ben opted for a non-religious outdoor ceremony, hosted by two friends amongst the Beech Trees. The stunning backdrop provided whimsical, fairy-tale vibes, and was complemented by the accent red running throughout (paying homage to Pia’s Chinese heritage). A hint of Harry Potter could also be found throughout the day from the invitations to the wedding favours. The day was captured by Elena Popa Photography - one of our recommended suppliers! Oh - the bride and groom also camped overnight in the woods… we salute you, you brave, brave people…

What Made Your Day Unique

"The location. Evenly Wood Garden is 60 acres of woodland and is absolutely magical. We had a non-religious outdoor ceremony that was hosted by two friends amongst the Beech Trees. The groom and bridal party wore traditional tails whilst everyone dressed for a summer party with a dash of red to pay homage to Pia’s Chinese heritage. The woodland was the main inspiration for all the styling. We kept florals to a minimum and used foliage and lighting to enhance the beauty of the surroundings. There was also a hint of Harry Potter throughout the day, from the invitations to the wedding favours, as we are both fans of the books. "

Inspiration & Styling

"We hired Eveneley Wood Garden for the entire weekend and put on a BBQ the day after the ceremony. It was really lovely to see everyone again and invite those who weren’t able to make it on Saturday. The team at Evenley Wood were absolutely incredible! It wouldn’t have been half as special without help, support and advise. Elena (the photographer) was amazing! She captured the day so beautifully and made us feel really comfortable despite both of us being notoriously camera-shy. We were very lucky that she was free for both our Registry Office marriage and the Ceremony in the Woods so everyone got to know her over the course of two days."

Pia & Ben

Pia and Ben could not have made it through their day without the help of their incredible suppliers, the advice provided, and their fantastic photographer, Elena, who made them feel totally at ease - the right person can change everything!
