Caroline & Nigel’s Pretty Pastel Wedding in the New Forest

Caroline and Nigel were married on a (mostly) sunny Sunday earlier this year, at Moorhill House in Burley. The hotel has undergone a fab refurb of the function rooms and also sports a rather lovely outdoor pavilion for wedding ceremonies. It was a low-key and relaxed affair, with pretty pink, cream and peach flowers adding a touch of flowery elegance.


The beautiful bride requested a simple neat and round bouquet to complement her sleek, silky gown, so I picked out roses, hydrangeas and two varieties of dahlias (anyone who knows me knows I’m fanatical about dahlias!). Her bridesmaids carried cute smaller versions too:


The outdoor ceremony was given a splash of the same colour scheme with flowers hung from the chairs and on the registrar’s table…


And I was VERY impressed that an unfortunately timed rain shower right in the middle of the ceremony did not bother the couple’s guests at all! They dutifully stayed seated, popped up their umbrellas and continued to pay attention to proceedings. I’m told the registrar did speak a little quicker when the heavens opened though!


I’m also pleased to report that the bride and groom were not at all bothered either and just very glad to be married. I mean, they looked pretty happy to me!


The reception was held inside thank goodness, and I was delighted with how good the colours looked with the neutral decor. Particularly loving the symmetrical cake-plus-cupcakes look and the fuzzy silver ‘dusty miller’ foliage in those table decs…


So overall, a pretty stylish and sophisticated day. I hope the happy couple are settling nicely into married-ness!
