Lauren and Jack’s late summer wedding had a delightful rose gold theme with elements of soft pinks and peach. Their wedding was held in the stunning new orangery at Hayne House in Kent.
You will probably recall that we’ve had the pleasure of featuring Hayne House on the blog, and now with the addition of their new orangery, couples really can bring the outside inside as Lauren and Jack did so effectively at their wedding.
Of course, it helps if like Lauren, you’re a professional florist. We just love Lauren’s attention to detail in the floral installations and arrangements right down to these romantic chair adornments, captured so beautifully , as is the whole wedding by Fleur Challis Photography.
We’re also super impressed that Lauren crafted many of the decorations herself. These compliment her floral handiwork to perfection and add such a meaningful and personal touch. Over to Lauren now to tell us more, including the details of her beautiful bridal look.
What was the style of your wedding?
Soft and romantic, rose gold, pinks and peaches.
How did you make your day feel really personal to you as a couple?
Being quite arty I loved making decorations like the welcome to our wedding sign, the table plan, place names and a selection of photos of our 10 years together.
Being a florist, me personally doing the flowers was a lovely touch and also the selection of music we chose added some personal touches.
How did you decide on your venue?
We were so excited about the plans for the orangery and Sam who we had our first initial meeting with was so helpful and really cared about what we wanted for our wedding day, it was important to us to be able to put our own ideas and decorations together and Hayne House allowed us to do this.
Tell us about your wedding outfits
Even before we had even got engaged I had visions of my wedding dress, I had always wanted lace, I found my dream dress at Perfection in Maidstone, it was a fitted and flare lace dress with a lace jacket finished off with a veil with hints of lace in.
As the colour scheme was rose gold, pinks and peaches I included this with a rose gold hair slide and blush pink heels. Jack got his 3 piece suit from Slaters menswear, he chose a blue to complement the pinks and peachy colours. The nude coloured tie and pocket square that matched the bridesmaid dresses were from swagger and swoon. He finished off his outfit by wearing light brown shoes.
What was your standout moment of your day?
Apart from marrying each other of course our standout moment of the day was the evening entertainment provided by Harry Kilb, he went to extra lengths to make sure we had the most perfect day and everyone commented on how amazing the entertainment was.
We played mr & mrs game which everyone loved and had a DJ battle towards the end of the night. We are quite competitive so these games really added fun to the day.
What are your top tips for other couples planning their wedding?
Pinterest is amazing for inspiration so definitely check that out when planning, has so many ideas and great for helping with any DIY projects your planning on making for your big day.
Apart from that just enjoy all the planning, have a moment to take it all in on the day, it goes by so quickly.
