WEDDINGS

English Charm

Julie Michaelsen Photography shares with us the beautiful wedding of Eduardo & Clareana which took part at the home of Eduardo’s Grandfather! Emma of Something Blue Wedding was the planner and stylist and here she is to tell us about the day: “As most of the guests would be travelling from Brazil they wanted a day which has lots of English elements with the party atmosphere of Brazil. The houses’ grounds provided unrestricted views across the South Downs and their own herd of deer and sheep, it was breathtaking and the perfect setting for an outdoor ceremony. All the guests were sat bellow a flower draped stone walled pond with the blessing ceremony taking place at the top of the steps by their pastor. From here the guests were greeted on the formal lawns with a champagne reception and stunning canapés.

When it came to the marquee they didn’t want ordinary and they didn’t want drapes, I knew the perfect match would be PapaKata and as soon as I showed them their Sperry’s it was decided. The joy of a Sperry is that you can have the sides completely open creating an outdoor dining room experience. The sperry was surrounded by candles and festoon lit walkways and looked like it is always a feature in the garden. Inside the sperry was where the look really came together, suspended flower hoops and festoon lighting which framed the U shape table plan perfectly.”

“Clareana wanted all the tables to connect to symbolise all the families coming together which not only looked stunning but also was a beautiful sentimental element in the wedding. We kept the English theme by using traditional English flowers in the central garlands. Roses, hydrangea and peonies filled the wooden tables and spilled down the ends as if they were growing, to soften the light we also used 350 pillar candles on brass stands to highlight the flowers and gold bead charger plates.

To tie in with the Brazilian heritage of the guests some traditions were also adhered to. The first was the stunning way Eduardo & Clareana displayed their favours to their guests, a mass of confectionery and cake flown over from Brazil adorned a table for guests to sample throughout the day. As with all Brazilian weddings dancing plays a huge part and entertainment was certainly high on Eduardo’s list for the wedding, the Philosophy Band had the dance floor full from the start and they didn’t stop dancing until 1am when it was time to end.”
