Although an outdoor wedding in June in this country is always a gamble, when this bride saw the gardens of the Four Seasons Hotel in Hampshire, she could not imagine getting married anywhere else.
To everyone’s delight, the day of the wedding brought blue skies and sunshine, providing the perfect backdrop for what would be a stunning ceremony location. The walled garden area had been transformed with rows of wooden chairs, a floral-lined aisle and a breath-taking chuppah under which the families would stand.
The wedding party had the benefit of staying in the luxury accommodation in the hotel, enjoying pre-wedding dinners and spa experiences. They were then able to make preparations for the ceremony in the comfort of their own suites. When the bride made her way down the aisle to meet her groom, the only one that had a chance of stealing the show was the couple’s adorable puppy, Winston, who took the role of ring bearer and walked down the aisle!
Once the glass had been smashed and the ceremony was over, all the guests made their way to the hotel’s terrace where they enjoyed the countryside views of rolling hills with a glass of champagne in hand. They then went into the ballroom to enjoy a sumptuous dinner with excellent entertainment from a lively show-band.
To accommodate the large number of guests, a nightclub area and chill-out lounge had been created for the guests to move to once they had finished their meal.
For the nightclub, JustSeventy had transferred the flowers from the ceremony, designed a bespoke bar and organised innovative lighting to create a party atmosphere which kept everybody dancing until the bar closed.
For those heading back to London, fleets of cars were arranged and for those staying at this five-star hotel, they could head for their rooms and look forward to the group brunch that would be waiting for them the following morning.
