Romantic Country Garden Wedding at Swinton Park
21 Feb 2016
Swinton Park located near Masham, North Yorkshire is a luxurious country house wedding venue set in acres of stunning grounds and surrounded by breathtaking scenery.
We created a romantic country garden wedding for Laura and Mark with flowers and foliage arranged in a natural yet elegant style to suit the stunning backdrop.
There are so many ways to add individuality to this classic style and we introduced bold colour and texture for a fresh and unique twist.
We used a fabulous mix of seasonal summer flowers and these included large headed roses, peonies, garden style spray roses, hydrangea, delphinium and larkspur.
More delicate varieties such as nigella, clematis, sweet peas, astrantia, lisianthus and veronica were combined with mixed foliage including herb rosemary, ivy trails and thalaspi for a romantic, rustic feel
A fresh summer palette of pastel pinks, white and green combined with touches of cornflower blue and magenta pink to add depth of colour worked beautifully against the bridesmaids’ very pale grey dresses.
The wedding ceremony was held in the library followed by the wedding breakfast in Samuel’s restaurant.
Natural arrangements of summer foliage and blooms, including blousy blue hydrangea, were arranged in large urns and placed at the top of the aisle. These created a fabulous focal point framing Laura and Mark during their ceremony.
A lush design of trailing ivy and clematis, with pops of colour from the hydrangea and peonies combined with soft candlelight decorated both the registrar’s table and top table.
Mark’s buttonhole was a smart, classic design featuring a single white Akito rose with a blue delphinium pip and sprig of rosemary.
