Tom and Ollie's Wedding at Orleans House and Magical Reception at The Secret River Garden

Orleans Gallery is such a pretty place for a ceremony… Ollie looked just gorgeous in her Jenny Packham dress and carried a loose tumbling bouquet of roses and beautiful locally sourced seasonal British blooms to compliment them in pastel shades… sweet peas, pinks, cosmos and ammi to name but a few. She had seven bridesmaids who each wore an individually chosen dress in green and their bouquets were all different too.


After the ceremony they walked to The Secret River Garden, a real hidden gem on the river bank in Twickenham where a brass band played Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing and really got the celebrations under way. They had a marquee in the garden which we decorated in garden style with a very large foliage installation as the focal point in the marquee, opting for arrangements of mostly foliage to echo natural greenery growing along the river bank. There were lots of really lovely touches; a swing area surrounded by tiny bottles of peach schnapps hanging by ribbons from the trees, a quiet chill out area with pretty silks wafting in the breeze and croquet to be played. The Secret River Garden is a real gem of a venue and Tom and Ollie’s was a gem of a wedding…..a real joy for me to work with them!
