Welcome to the wedding of Jessica & Olivier…
Despite it being very much ‘up our street’, the planning of a Hedsor House wedding had eluded us so far so we were extra delighted when Jessica & Olivier chose this beautiful venue for their wedding venue. Our lovely couple were keen to keep to an unfussy and uncomplicated style with beautiful but minimal details. To them, the day was truly about their marriage and celebrating with family and friends. With a love of good food and good wine, Jessica & Olivier ensured the menu was exactly to their liking and incorporated elements of their British and French cultures – all the way from canapés, imported wine to the cheese station. Colours echoing throughout the day were soft natural greens and dusty pinks with hints of ivory, oyster and gold.
The Centre Hall is an incredible room as the setting for a ceremony with show-stopping domed glass ceiling and gallery from above; a great place for the live music duo Velvet Delight to perform from during the ceremony.
The Reception & Wedding Breakfast
Luckily the weather was sunny and dry (if but a little windy!) so guests were able to enjoy a laid back drinks reception outside within the gardens of Hedsor House. Safe & Sound Events provided the fantastic childcare which saw lots of brilliant games and toys outside for the 15 younger guests to enjoy!
The wedding breakfast took place in The Ballroom; a gorgeous part of Hedsor with ample light on a summer’s afternoon thanks to the windows all along one side and mirrors across the opposite wall. This allowed the tablescape to come into its own and the beautiful glass chargers and gold cutlery reflected the sunlight. This décor was a great example of how an upgrade of one or two items (e.g. table cloths and cutlery) made such a difference and transformed the look of the tables.
Jessica told us at the end of the night that she had wanted to dance with her family and friends the whole night and her and Olivier certainly did this; a sure sign they were having the time of their lives! Glo Productions created a fantastic party atmosphere with their lighting and starlit dance floor and our DJ kept on playing fabulous tunes which kept the floor busy at all times!
