new on the blog is Stuart & April’s Mount Ephraim Pre Wedding Shoot. Stuart & April will be getting hitched late June, in an outdoor ceremony at Mount Ephraim in Kent.
April & Stuart fell in love with the beautiful gardens at Mount Ephraim, and they instantly knew it would be perfect for their Vintage Garden themed wedding. They’ve chosen lots of lace, old picture frames, vintage sweet bowls etc. Most of the items will be homemade to add a personal touch. Laced jam jars will hold candles for a romantic feel, and all of the name menu settings have been personally designed and printed by themselves. They have raided charity shops for glass dishes and vases. Although it will have structure they still wanted a ‘mis-matched’ vintage feel, with random jam jars of flowers and decorations. There isn’t really a colour scheme, but the bridesmaid dresses are a purple taupe colour, which April will tie in with golds, silvers, creams and whites. The boys will have mis-matched blue shade suits which they hope will give a relaxed but formal look. The chairs will be covered with lace covers, with lots of ribbon tied to everything. The table plan is made out of an old mirror which they will clip the table names to, (named after absent loved ones) and it will then be placed on an easel in the marquee.
The couple have gone for vintage style flowers, with lots of roses in Memory Lane colour, with cream and ivory. Also lots of Gypsifila, which will be scattered throughout with lots of greenery. They have 9 tables and a top table. Each table will have a tall centre piece to give the feeling of height in the marquee, and then the top table will have random jam jars between each person.
Bouquets will again be memory lane and cream roses, with gypsophila, brunia, cream peony’s, spray roses, lavender and greenery, the button holes will be roses and gypsophila. They also plan to add flower garlands wherever they can to add colour and texture to the staircase, and around the archway where they will be saying their vows.
