An elegant, luxurious, and fun-filled wedding weekend for E&T. The 3 day celebration took place in one of AJW&E’s favourite Cotswolds venues, Euridge Manor, also known as the Lost Orangery. we used the bold tones of the orangery as the inspiration for our colour palette. Sumptuous shades of peach, terracotta, toffee, and oranges were interwoven throughout the day and balanced with natural greens for a chic and cohesive design.

The celebrations started with a fabulous Friday welcome dinner in the Orangery with an exquisite menu of culinary treats and seasonally foraged foods from Vaughn’s Kitchen. Making the most of the balmy summer evening, guests spilled out onto the terrace to mingle with a chilled glass of wine before retiring to their onsite accommodation where they were treated to bespoke welcome bags of goodies.

Transforming the Orangery for the second time, the ceremony was held inside the beautiful glass house. Evoking the relaxed feel of a summer garden, large urns of flowers framed the fountain. Poppies, peach roses, and cascading foliage dressed the space and modern white bentwood chairs created a bold juxtaposition with the orange walls.

After the ceremony, guests were led through the gardens and onto the boathouse terrace – revealing the Euridge Manor’s sparkling sapphire lake. Guests were greeted with champagne and canapés and serenaded by a string quartet. The canapés reflected the bride’s Chinese heritage with a selection of dim sum, served in bamboo steamers & banana leaves.

Having already had a first look pre- ceremony, followed by portraits, the bride and groom had extra time to enjoy their drinks reception and mingle with their guests before the call to dinner.

The wedding breakfast took place in the ballroom, a space that was completely transformed (it has a swimming pool underneath the floor!). We designed this to complement the venue’s Georgian architecture and beautiful gardens, also paying attention to the lemony ballroom walls and paying homage to the couples travels, stories, and cultures. The tablescape was given a lot of consideration. We played with colour, keeping the tablecloths neutral but adding a bright pop of coral in the form of draped napkins to immediately make the design more interesting and dynamic. To give the styling a chic and modern edge, black place cards acted as punctuation points within the tablescape design.

Tables were set up in two long rows. Pale peach and terracotta roses combined with ochre and light green candles, elegant modern type stationery, shimmering glassware, simple & chic looped edge charger plates and paired with the gorgeous glow of candlelight to bring the vision to life.

During dinner the AJW&E team finalised the third transformation of the Orangery, this time setting the scene for an evening of music and dancing. We set up a cocktail bar, framing the structure with gold drink shelves and adding floral arrangements, candles, and bespoke cocktail menus. A stage was set up for the band and a chic black dancefloor was laid whilst warm amber and orange uplighters created atmosphere. The guests partied until the early hours!

Sunday was all about the barbecue brunch. Guests were treated to a mouthwatering feast alongside Mimosas and Bloody Mary’s. A variety of traditional garden games such as croquet, rounders, boules, and giant Jenga were played, and guests dined under the beautiful rose covered pergola – the perfect end to a long wedding weekend.
