Equine Chic at the Ham Polo Club
The Story: Polo is believed to be the oldest team sport in history. This “Sport of Kings” is centred around the special relationship between humans and horses. Polo is also a unique sport which blends the athletic talent of horse and rider which, much like those in a marriage, need to function as one to be successful.
The Location: Ham Polo Club, known for its charming grounds and Clubhouse. Founded in 1926, the Ham Polo Club has an established and distinguished reputation now over 90 years old. The club is located in Richmond, Surrey just outside of central London and sits on 25 acres of beautiful scenery next door to the National Trust’s Ham House. Ham Polo Club is the last remaining polo club in Greater London and is a wonderful wedding venue, especially for lovers of anything equine.
The Vibe: Equestrian chic. This lavish celebration is drenched in spring tones and spotlights the best of the British countryside only eight miles from Hyde Park Corner. The Clubhouse setting brings a sense of the outside in and the nearby majestic poly ponies add a little something extra special.
The Details: Floral opulence is the best way to describe this look. The vines that were starting to push out the first green foliage were matched perfectly with the pink and white blossom trees, creating an elegant, timeless and unforgettable atmosphere. The delicate colour palette of sand to lilac was inspired by pastel sunset hues. The bride wore rustic leather riding boots under her elegant gown from Lora Nova Bridal – perfect for riding off into the sunset with her beau.
- Mix natural and faux florals to create an amazing look on a budget
- Remember that natural light is your best friend. Take full advantage of this if you are getting married in a natural setting like the countryside.
- Less is always better than more! Selecting a few tasteful elements is better than choosing too many random elements and cluttering your look.
