Syon Park was the setting for a botanical-inspired wedding this summer, with a stunning wedding breakfast by Create designed to complement the day’s theming.
The bride and groom’s love of blue provided design inspiration – using sun prints, wedding planner Knot and Pop worked with silhouettes of flowers to create a beautifully organic scene with an eclectic mix of materials, textures and references.
The day began with a drinks reception, where guests enjoyed Lychee & pink ginger soft cocktails, or Champagne The newlyweds’ chosen canapés included popcorn chicken lollipops with coronation sour cream, chorizo sausages with a lemon and garlic aioli, wild mushroom and goats cheese filo parcel, courgette fritters and chicken liver parfait.
Starters included smoked chicken with pineapple and bacon jam, micro coriander and pineapple curd or English asparagus and somerset brie tart with baby watercress salad, chargrilled artichoke, asparagus pine nut pesto & edible flowers. Younger guests enjoyed Crispy Cod Goujons With Hand cut Chips, Peas, Broccoli, Baby Carrots & Lemon Mayo.
The main course was chargrilled rump of lamb with a parmesan crustwith twice baked artichoke soufflé, braised little gem with peas, broad beans and tarragon, baked courgette topped with English pancetta crumbs and cherry jus, or pea, ricotta and pistachio ravioli in summer herb scented pasta with lemon and garlic roasted courgettes, pea shoots and lemon cream
The day was packed full of experiences for everyone to enjoy. A floristry workshop entertained the kids, teaching them how to make their own floral crowns.
A dessert duo included classic crème brûlée and chocolate chantilly & hot dark chocolate melting dessert, or homemade jelly and ice cream for the children.
The blue botanical design appeared across a statement cake, and on over two hundred hand painted tiles for painted cookies to lay on. The wedding cake was served later in the day at the tea and coffee station.
Escort cards were placed upon a bed of foliage, inked in blue, with gorgeous modern calligraphy flourishes.
Guests also enjoyed Marryoke, filmed singing snippets of Pharrell’s Happy, to then be edited into a music video for the couple to remember the fun of the day.
