A truly Romantic Country Estate

Nestled at the heart of the estate, Orchardleigh House is an elegant 19th century Victorian stately home that had provided the ultimate fairytale setting for Shari & Tariq wedding.

The enchanting array of backdrops made Orchardleigh House the perfect location for this winter woodland wedding last February.

A magical Winter Wonderland set up

Shari & Tariq’s envision a winter woodland set up .

Davina Marques at Dkm Events and Jennifer Owen at Goldfinch Floral Studio created this inspirational composition with laudable manufacturing skills.

In fact, they transformed both ceremony and reception spaces with flowers and foliage creating a ‘dusted with snow’ look.

Pale icy coloured foliage, white toned flowers and spray appearance flowers were used to make this dreamy look come true.

In addition, the dining room was enhanced with high and low displays for the tables, making the optical illusion of a bigger space:

  • For the tall arrangements they used a mix of blossom branches, pussy willow and twisted willow for a subtle hint of magic.
  • The low displays were done in moss and arranged inside rose gold cubes.

As a result, this helped to give the impression of a slice of fantasy woodland floor growing from the tables and through the cubes.

Luxurious Geometrical Cake

David at The Cake Architect made this gorgeous cake that you can admire in the pictures below.

He incorporates both Shari’s wedding colours, the wedding theme as well as the geometrical & feather features.

The deep teal tones, geometric patterns and rose gold were made for an opulent and striking statement wedding cake.

In conclusion, the cake was a delicious combination of red velvet, pina colada, carrot and cookies and cream cakes. It was a fantastic mix of shapes, sizes and colours that brought together Shari’s vision!

Bride and Groom: Shari & Tariq

Shari & Tariq frosty fairy tale could not be completed without their amazing outfit to crown them Winter Queen & King!

Lora Nova Bridal created the bespoke Shari’s  “The Snow Queen” dress. She sketched the design and choose to create the outfit with Italian materials in her boutique in London.

She used a snow-white shade of silk satin which they overlaid with delicate silver sparkles tulle, thus resembling snowflakes falling on the backdrop of a winter sky. 

After that, Lora “drenched” the bottom of the skirt in ostrich feathers and ivory bugle beads, which added extra winter elegance as well as tied the dress to the feather cape Shari wore on top made by Julia Marie Chew of Xiao Lin Design.

Also the design of the neckline and sleeves were done in a cape-like style, which tied into the entire look, whilst adding a sensual touch. 

Hand-sewing delicate ivory beads all around the neckline as well as across the waistline was the perfect finishing touch for this terrific dress.

Tariq’s Sherwani was a masterpiece itself , all teal and silver embroidery recalling the wedding theme and completing Shari sumptuous dress.
