This week we also dressed the beautiful Chiswick House for an intimate wedding showcase for top industry professionals and bridal press.
Guests, including leading wedding planners, wedding press and wedding bloggers who were treated to a delicious autumnal lunch and venue tour, introducing them to this gem in West London.
It’s such as beautiful time of year with the leaves turning, so we decided to bring autumn indoors and create an autumnal, colourful display for the table.
On entering the House, guests were brought into a ceremony set up, with the most gorgeous pair of urns setting the scene and tone for the afternoon.
Moving throughout the rooms, gold and copper vases and fishbowls were dotted around with autumnal English hydrangeas, gourds and autumnal oak leaves. Guests were treated to champagne and canapes whilst taking in their surroundings and the history and beauty of the building and the artwork.
Then, for the lunch, The Red Velvet Room was dressed for a lavish Autumnal feast. Along the centre of the table tall bronze and gold metallic trumpet vases and vintage urns filled with twisted golden willow and Autumnal oak and beech had hanging glass bubble vases with burnt yellow dahlias inside, bringing height and drama to the room.
Intertwined at table level were mini pumpkins, gourds, crab apples, richly coloured copper, burnt orange and rich red oak and beech leaves. Tom Pierce and Avingon Blooms as well as Cherry Brandy and Peach Avalanche Roses were placed en masse in single stem gold vases, which met with the Cinnamon Damask linen and coordinating charger plates, napkins and gold cutlery meant for a real visual feast of bold autumnal colours and soft, paler golds and blushes to lift it all and keep it from being too dark.
The table and décor was a real talking point among the guests as it picked out the tones of the reds and golds within the room itself perfectly, from the walls, ceiling and artwork. The peach and champagne shades of the flower tables perfectly matched the gold in the room and especially the 15th Century, champagne gold chairs that lined the edges of the room!
After lunch, guests were invited to coffee in the beautiful Conservatory, with the autumn sun providing a lovely warmth through the glass.
It was a wonderful day and such a pleasure working with the team at Chiswick House, along with Food Show providing the most delicious canapes and lunch, and Kelly Chandler from The Bespoke Wedding Company who co-ordinated the day.
