Welcome to the wedding of Carli and Alex…
The Brief
Welcome to the wedding of Carli & Alex – and what joy we had helping this lovely couple plan their day! From the start we knew the bride and groom’s priority was their friends and family who would play a big part in the celebrations – it was important to Carli & Alex that their guests were guaranteed to have a lovely time and were looked after. Another key element for this couple was the evening party full of good music and dancing which you’ll see from some of Pippa Mackenzie’s photos from the night!

The ceremony itself was beautiful with Carli and Alex’s children joining other little family members as well as bridesmaids leading the way down the aisle before the bride.

The Ceremony
Pre-ceremony both Bride and Groom were relaxed and calm and it was obvious they were so excited to be married! There were lots of smiles and hugs behind the scenes and we could tell it was going to be a momentous day for not just Carli & Alex but their children too.

Floral design was by Simon Nickell and his team who created a gorgeous white tree arch along the aisle accompanied by beautiful white pillar candles, tea lights and ivory flowers; a wonderful reflection of a winter wedding without it feeling ‘Christmassy’ or festive – after all, the day was about Carli & Alex, not the lead up to Christmas! The ceremony itself was beautiful with Carli & Alex’s children joining other little family members as well as the bridesmaids leading the way down the aisle before the bride. After a beautiful ceremony led by the registrar, the new Mr and Mrs left The Orangery at Great Fosters ready to celebrate their marriage with their family and friends.
The Reception & Wedding Breakfast
Taking advantage of the wintery late afternoon sunset, the talented photographer Pippa Mackenzie captured as many lovely photos as possible before the light faded as guests mingled and shared the celebrations.
The wedding breakfast décor was effortlessly classic with soft ivories and whites following on from the ice white branches in the ceremony design. We loved the mini baubles that Carli had found to hold each guest’s name in – a really effective detail for the tablescape.
The Party
The after-dinner reception was a really important part of the day for Carli & Alex and they invested a great deal of thought and effort into transforming the barn for a dark, moody and sparkly evening party with black backdrops and dance floor brought to life by hundreds of small white lights to create the party atmosphere! They chose an amazing acapella band, The Overtones, alongside Sliding Vinyl DJ.
