Real Wedding: An Elegant Summer Wedding at Stoke Park, Buckinghamshire

Today we are delighted to share with you one of our real weddings from the Summer of 2014.

Anna and Michael designed an elegant and romantic summer wedding at the beautiful Stoke Park in Buckinghamshire. They found us as their wedding day was getting closer, and wanted our help to recommend suppliers, assist with the design and to ensure the whole day ran exactly how they wished it to be.

Working closely with this incredibly organised Russian bride and her German groom, we assisted them to design and plan the wedding in an amazing jam-packed 8 weeks together.

Anna had exquisite taste and knew the exact style she wanted for her wedding – chic, sophisticated, soft and romantic. They also both wanted the day to be fun for their 75 guests, and most importantly, full of music.

The ceremony took place in the stunning Ballroom, which was decorated with gorgeous flower arrangments by one of our favourite florists, Chantal from Chantal Flores Design. The wonderful thing about having a June wedding is the array of flowers that are in season at that time of year, so the arrangements were full of soft pink and cream peonys, David Austin roses and sweet peas. The fragrance filled the room and I think you will agree they are absoltely beautiful.

To mark the aisle the Stylish Events team laid fresh rose petals and we also created and made the confetti cones which were thrown by the guests to congratulate the Bride and Groom on becoming husband and wife.

Following the ceremony the drinks reception was held on the terrace overlooking the glorious grounds of Stoke Park. Guests were treated to afternoon tea, including cupcakes topped with Russian dolls, whilst playing croquet and accompanied by music from one of our favourite DJs Mighty Fine Entertainment.

Just before dinner the Stylish Events team handed out 100’s of balloons to the guests for a balloon release, which was such a lovely touch to the day.

Special touches were sprinkled around the venue to embrace the cultural heritage of Anna and Michael, including Matreshka dolls, German gingerbread hearts, a monogrammed golden post box and on the bar there were giant pretzels and mini schnapps bottles.

After dinner Anna, Michael and their guests truly let their hair down and enjoyed great music from Metropolis Live, followed by a DJ set from  Mighty Fine, accompanied by a sax and bongo player, well into the wee small hours of the morning. There was also a great disco photo booth from the team at The Mighty Booth.

We have been lucky enough to organise a number of Russian Weddings in the UK, mainly due to amazing Marina, who is our Russian wedding planner. She was able to assist all of their Russian guests, particularly those who only spoke Russian, so they could enjoy this magical day. Marina also hand-made this beautiful Table Plan.

It was such an honour to be chosen by this lovely couple as their Wedding Planners for their beautiful Russian and German wedding day. They were very kind to send us this message (in English and Russian) after their wedding:

“Dear Dominique, Becca, Marina and the team at Stylish Events! We were so lucky to have found you. You created the most perfect wedding day for us.  You were very hard working, professional, courteous and kind. Your positive attitude was infectious. Your creative thinking was inspirational. We especially appreciated your attention to detail, responsiveness (even over the weekends and late nights) and your cost effective solutions to our ideas. We felt so comfortable to entrust you with organising our special day. We are forever grateful.” 
-Anna and Michael.

“От всего сердца хотим выразить свою благодарность Доминик, Бекке, Марине и всей команде Stylish Events за великолепную организацию нашей свадьбы. Особенно мы были очень рады познакомиться с Мариной, которая помогла нам внести русские традиционные элементы в европейскую свадьбу и воплотить наши идеи в реальность. Марина  – профессионал своего дела. Она очень добрая, ответственная, креативная и талантливая.  Все наши русскоязычные гости были в восторге от ее внимания и заботы в течение всего дня. Анна и Майкл, Стоук Парк”
