There are many parts of my job that I love, but working in beautiful and unique venues really beats working at any office desk! Recently I had the pleasure of working with Hillersdon House in East Devon which has recently been launched as a unique wedding venue and available for exclusive hire.
The house has been recently restored and in simpler words rescused from a what was a complete state of ruin! Its restoration has been done with complete care and attention to detail from the choice of art on the walls even down to the perfect choice of dinner service.
In collaboration with Blue Fizz events and a number of beautiful suppliers, including photographer Frances Carlise we were able to decorate and showcase Hillersdon House and how perfect it is for any brides wedding day.
De Winton Paper Co provided us with beautiful and elegant stationary that suited the colour scheme perfectly. Daisy, Molly and Me, provided this beautiful cake.
I was lucky enough to work with all these great suppliers in this fantastic venue. So if you are looking for a venue in the East of Devon then Hillersdon House is one for the viewing.
The Colour scheme of the day was based on Cupcakes and Couture so I chose a full and sumptous mix of full on dreamy pinks for the day. Including seasonal Snowberry & Dahlias, with a really heavy and rich mix of roses including both Standard and Garden Roses. To include Princess Charlene of Monacao Rose which was incredibly scented and part of the incredible collection of the Parfum Flower Company's of garden roses. Alongside her was Charmant Rose, Creamy Twister Spray Rose and Pink Lace Spray Rose which to me looks like a cupcake itself with its fluted edges. Bound together with a a varied mix of Eucalyptus and Gold Asparagus Fern.
Within the estates 200 acres there is the Temple at the lake, which is just the perfect location for a secluded and perfect ceremony.
The pillars were simply decorated with eucalyptus and gold fern garlands wrapped around them, along with small posies as pew ends. Inside was a eucalyptus and rose garland which looked stunning wrapped around the beautiful antique silver candlsticks.
As well as the many beautiful locations for photos there is also the whimisical Stumpery! Very unique and rather secluded for those beautiful together shots..
To finish of the day a big snuggle from a very special polar bear!! x
