Sometimes the wedding fair you go to becomes your ideal wedding venue. That is often the case with the Kings Chapel.
I first met Gagan at the Kings Chapel wedding fair 2018 and she was very interested in the table displays I was showing. In particular, she liked the vase with roses and fairy lights set inside. So she photographed them and later got in touch for a consultation.
At the consultation we discussed ideas and perused images. We were able to narrow these down for her and create a tailor-made “Wedding Plan”. This is something we do for all our clients; it consists of flower bouquets, buttonholes, table, church and reception decorations to suit your venue, all with the budget and vision you have in mind.
Gagan told us her favoured colours. From these, we chose pinky peach vuvuzula roses, apricot lissianthus, pale pink spray roses, white dahlia and gypsophila to feature in her wedding bouquet.
The same vevuzula roses were used in the storm vases on the guest tables. These decorations were the ones Gagan had originally seen displayed at the wedding fair.
The Venue Decorations
We dressed the pulpit and pillars for the ceremony with greenery, fairy lights and flowers. Next, the balcony was draped with blush pink fabric.
Then Gagan added her own finishing touches. She included peach napkins, bunting and rose petals to the aisle.
Lastly, Joely of Ambience Venue Designs, added an aisle runner and fairy lights under the mezannine. This really helped complete the setting for the wedding breakfast and also the evening celebrations.
Pete (the groom) wore a traditional asian Kurta for the ceremony. Gagan wore a stunning ivory and cream ‘western’ dress. Finally the bridesmaids donned a fusion of Asian and western dresses in various colours, which really tied the whole theme together.
Mehndi is the art or practice of applying temporary henna tattoos, especially as part of a bride or groom’s preparations for a wedding. After applying the Mehndi, the bride must wait for the henna to stain her hands and feet to create lasting designs.
It is commonly believed among Indian tradition that the darker the colour of the Bride’s Mehndi, the more her husband will love her.
The vegan cake was made by Nikki at Bountiful Bakery. It was iced with buttercream ruffles and decorated with fresh flowers.
We will often stay until after the ceremony for weddings at the Kings Chapel. This is because the ceremony room gets turned into the wedding breakfast room.
Thanks to this, we get to see the bride and groom after the ceremony and all the razamataz that goes with it! This often includes confetti arches along with music and drinks which take place in the Secret Garden behind the chapel. So we get to see the very first glimpse of the married couple and often some happy pictures too!
A Word of Thanks…
“Thank you so much Debby and your team. The wedding flowers, my bouquet, centrepieces and decor looked absolutely stunning. We had so many compliments and you somehow managed to capture just what I had imagined and hoped for 🙂 You took away the stress of arranging flowers/decor and made it all so easy for us. Excellent communication throughout and can not recommend you highly enough. Thank you so much.” – Gagan
