To create a wildly romantic and organic countryside wedding at Wilderness Reserve in Suffolk for YouTube celebrities Ali-A & Clare Siobhan. Our clients wanted to bring to life an intimate wedding celebration, filled with colour and the spirit of a quintessentially English garden.

Weaving the values and personality of our fabulous couple into each facet of their wedding scheme, we sought inspiration in the surrounding countryside and wild flower meadows. Gothic influences were carefully considered to integrate in a subtle and meaningful manner.

The Final Creation

Using rich and romantic red flowers, lashings of British foliage and a whole host of English dahlias, we conjured up a hugely impactful and colourful floral scheme.

A decadent floral arrangement tumbled down the stairs within Sibton Park to welcome guests and offer the most beautiful photo opportunity. This gave guests a hint of what would follow but no one could have imagined how we would have transformed The Orangery into a magical and enchanted garden.

The Orangery featured a custom-created scenic design backdrop behind the stage and the most impressive and theatrical floral tree installation. Bringing the true spirit of the garden indoors, floral meadows ran along the aisle and filled The Orangery at Wilderness Reserve with colour. The perfect autumn wedding scheme.

Guests then dined within a metal conservatory marquee and once again, continued the autumn spirit of this countryside wedding using runners of flowers along each of the dining tables. Floral runners featured a multitude of roses and dahlias to result in a timeless and elegant wedding scheme. The scheme also included some of our favourite flowers; café au lait dahlias and chocolate cosmos. Did you know, the latter actually smell like chocolate when you touch their petals?! Floral arrangements were accented by rich, autumn hued candles and a ceiling of English grown foliage that brought the most luxurious countrywide wedding in Suffolk to life.

Whilst guests were dining, our team transformed The Orangery at Wilderness Reserve and took it from a ceremony into the perfect after party space. Lit with warm amber lighting, custom-built bars to match the ceremony backdrop were added, the ceremony stage became the perfect area for the band and the ceremony flowers were moved and re-dressed to create a beautiful autumn garden within which guests partied the night away!
