Sonning Flowers also created Kim’s stunning bridal bouquet which featured a selection of roses, orchids, freesias and berries, all of which tied in to the burnt orange, autumnal wedding theme.
At their Wedding Planning Wednesday session with their dedicated wedding planner Ann, the couple decided on a banquet menu consisting of the red onion tart to start with, followed by the Hampshire sticky beef and Bijou’s specialty chocolate pot with Jack Daniels ice cream for dessert. The couple ordered a four tier, naked wedding cake decorated with fresh fruit that was cut and distributed to guests after the emotional wedding speeches.
40 additional wedding guests arrived to congratulate the newlywed couple in the early evening and a band called Mr Kanish played the slow version of Chaka Khan’s ‘Ain’t Nobody’ as the bride and groom danced their first dance surrounded by their nearest and dearest. The first dance set the tone for the whole evening and the dance floor wasn’t empty from that moment on, for the rest of the night. To keep the ladies comfortable, Kim had arranged for a basket of flip flops to be displayed in The Monks’ Refectory for guests to wear if they needed them.
