Ben & Rosy’s Syon Park Wedding
Ben & Rosy’s Syon Park Wedding
Hey Folks, Today on the blog is Ben & Rosy’s Great Hall wedding. Ben & Rosy tied the knot back in April at one of my favourite venues Syon Park. Syon Park is such a grand venue with great architecture and stunning grounds to play with. Thank you to Ben & Rosy it was my pleasure to document your wedding ! Enjoy a selection of images from their day below.
Where did you get married? Our wedding ceremony was held in the Great Hall at Syon House, Brentford with an evening reception in a Chinese restaurant in Wandsworth.
Why did you choose the venue? After looking at a few venues, Syon House was the last one on our list and we instantly fell in love with it. It had ticked all the boxes and had the wow factor we were looking for which was the breathtaking Great Conservatory.
Did you have any type of theme to your day/colour schemes? Since we both live abroad and like to travel, we decided to go with a travel theme which can be seen carried through in our stationery, table plan and decorations. We also had a colour scheme for the day and chose dusty pink and blue.
Which flowers did you choose? The bridal bouquet was made up of cream and pink roses with blue hydrangeas. The bridesmaid and flower girl bouquets had cream and pink roses. The groomsmen had cream rose buttonholes and the groom had a special cream rose buttonhole with a hint of pink and blue to match the brides’ bouquet.
Which style was the brides dress? My dress was designed by Kitty Chen and is an all white strapless lace gown with a sweetheart neckline and trumpet style silhouette. The highlight of the dress for me was the delicate beading all over the dress and the low back detail which added a bit of glamour and sparkle. It also had buttons extended to the train which looked beautifully elegant.
How did you have your hair/make-up and why? I decided to go with a half up/down hairstyle with curls and pinned in a way that would give the illusion that it was a loose updo from the front but still be able to show off the long beautiful curls at the back. For my make-up, I wanted something quite natural and light to go with our pink colour scheme but also wanted to have my eyes stand out.
Which colour did the groomsmen/bridesmaids wear? The bridesmaids wore a dusty pink chiffon floor length gown with a one shoulder strap that had roses on it. The groomsmen wore a navy suit, waistcoat and dusty pink tie to match.
How did you feel that the day went as a whole? As we were organising the wedding from abroad, there was always that worry in the back of our minds that something would go wrong on the day or that we’d forgotten to do something vital but luckily the day went smoothly and was just as fun as we’d hoped it would. Being both born in the UK and from Chinese backgrounds, we wanted to incorporate our roots and have a Western/Asian fusion style wedding (which also meant I got to wear two dresses)! One of the highlights of the day has got to be the lion dance performed by our friend and his team. We kept this as a surprise for our guests and judging from their faces they all looked like they thoroughly enjoyed the performance. Another great thing about our wedding was just having everyone together under one roof so that we could spend quality time with all our family and friends and catch up, take lots of photos and party one last time before we fly back home to Hong Kong.
