Stephen Woodhams Design - Event
May Wedding, England


We were asked to put together a lovely wedding in May one year and had the idea of keeping it all very simple, with garden flowers in a white and cream colour theme. It was such a delight, as I have always wanted to use Solomon’s seal as one of the key flowers in a scheme and we used over 400 stems on this event alone!

The church was quite striking in an architectural way so anything we did had to be over-scaled, hence the large garland of potted plants and flowers in an arch over the doorway. It included potted herbs, rosemary and thyme, foxgloves, marguerites and white lace-cap hydrangeas. Inside we decorated the windowsills with lovely assorted foliage, twigs and masses of candles, so we could be candle-lit. The bridesmaids held hand-tides of champagne and white roses together with cream sweet peas and country foliages. Fresh and dried rose petals were used as confetti.

We put up a marquee in the garden for the reception, and this was furnished with old garden benches and tables, including full height trees within the marquee. There were hanging floral displays and suspended throughout the marquee were crystal and wire chandeliers. Some were hung low over the tables to give a magical identity. The theme on the tables was crystal candelabra, together with a whole assortment of silver and glass vases, filled mostly with one type of foliage and one type of flower, together with potted herbs and marguerites and assorted candles and night lights. We paid attention to every detail and even attended the food tastings to ensure that the whole table setting co-ordinated in a very subtle way right down to the flowers on each individual napkin. At night it looked pretty magical.
