A Summer Wedding Ceremony at The Orangery in Holland Park
Chantal and Louis held their wedding ceremony at the Orangery in Holland Park. The Orangery is such a gorgeous setting for a summer wedding with lots of natural light even when the clouds are gathering, as was the case this day.
You can see above how beautiful the bride looked in her Lanvin wedding dress!
The couple’s children were very much involved in the day with Gigi acting as flower girl and Gabriel and Guillaume as very smart pageboys. And, as you can see below, 4 year old Gabriel had a hand in the design of the order of ceremony.
The beautiful flowers that lit up the Orangery were created by Jay Archer and included some small olive trees.
As the bride, accompanied by her flower girl, arrived the rain started to fall but they were well protected by the ushers and bridesmaid who were their with umbrellas at the ready.
The wedding cake was this amazing croquembouche made by Le Papillon patisserie in Surrey. The superb food and drinks were created and served by Cooks and Partners and included a variety of bowl foods including sea bass and lamb with couscous.
There was a wishing tree so that guests could leave a personal message for the happy couple.
One of Holland Park’s resident peacocks tried to gate crash the ceremony but was ushered away. However, it’s considered very good luck for a bride and groom to see a peacock on their wedding day (maybe!).
