Andreea & Lucas didn’t want to spend the day of their wedding setting up décor and managing their supplier team, so they hired me to co-ordinate and manage their day.

Working together in the final months leading up to their big day, we met to discuss all their plans for their wedding and the décor and details they had curated for the day.

They chose Nonsuch Mansion in Surrey as their wedding venue, a historic Georgian house steeped in history, set in Nonsuch Park.  Drawn to the stunning interiors and gorgeous lawns, Andreea & Lucas loved the feeling and energy of the spaces, and the location was ideal for the many international guests who travelled to attend their wedding.

The day began with bridal prep for Andreea and the bridesmaids in the light and airy bridal suite, while Lucas and the groomsmen got ready at home before arriving ahead of the ceremony.

The styling was kept simple throughout the wedding spaces, so as not to detract from the architectural details of the venue.  The ceremony and wedding breakfast were held in the same space, which featured a large mantlepiece and mirror that reflected the light.

Andreea & Lucas’ vision for their wedding was romantic and sophisticated, their colour palette included blush and ivory with lots of greenery (including olive leaves) and an added touch of blue for the flowers.

Large floral arrangements were positioned in front of the windows overlooking the lawn, creating a wonderful focal point for the ceremony.  The mantlepiece was filled with an abundance of bud vases and floating candles, that evoked a romantic and sophisticated feel.

Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed drinks and canapes on the lawns with live music performed a guitarist.  A fun addition to the drinks reception was a vintage ice-cream cart serving delicious ice cream – it went down a treat!

After the drinks reception, guests took their seats at round tables for a delicious 3 course meal.  The tables featured elegant centrepieces filled with an abundance of flowers, and elegant tea lights.

Andreea & Lucas wanted to incorporate their nationalities into the wedding, and their beautiful 3 tier cake created the perfect opportunity to do so.  Each sugar flower that adorned the cake was a reflection of one for their nationalities; American Rose, Romanian Peony, Dutch Tulip and Italian White Lily.  Olive leaves represented peace and friendship, with gold leaves representing rebirth, fertility and growth. They chose lemon drizzle, white chocolate and raspberry, and carrot cake for their cake flavours.

A flower wall with a neon sign that read ‘All you need is love’ served as a perfect backdrop to the photobooth which entertained guests throughout the day, the photos creating a great way to fill the guest book. 

When day turned to night, everyone danced to a DJ and enjoyed late night pizza.

It was important to Andreea & Lucas to include lots of personal touches, and they did this through signage telling the stories of how they met, and the background of their cake design; as well as photo frames that featured photos from their pre-wedding couples shoot.

As a nod to Lucas’ Dutch roots Stroopwafels were handed out as favours, Lucas also sourced Lambrusco, a sparkling red wine from the Emilia-Romagna region in Italy where he is from, for the drinks reception.  A special white wine was served at the wedding breakfast from the region in France he grew up in.

Andreea & Lucas’ wedding was a true reflection of their personalities, and it was wonderful to see all the personal touches they included.  It was a beautiful day filled with love and laughter, and I’m honoured I was part of their chosen supplier team.
