A Black Tie Wedding At Baddow Park House
Sophie and Ravi contacted me shortly after their engagement inviting me to plan their wedding day. With no wedding date or venue confirmed we set about sourcing the perfect venue to host their wedding day which would include an intimate twilight ceremony, followed by a large evening reception to celebrate their nuptials with extended family and friends.
After a short search Sophie & Ravi fell in love with the beautiful Baddow Park House a luxury, exclusive hire wedding venue nestled amongst the stunning Essex countryside and promptly confirmed this as the wedding venue for their autumnal wedding day.
With the assistance of Sally from Halo Blossom a luxurious colour palette of cream, champagne, pale plum and a pop of warm aubergine was chosen for the big day which was further complimented by an elegant black tie dress code.
Sophie spent a relaxing wedding morning within the salon & bridal suite at Baddow Park House, where Jaimie Attfield and Sarah Wade created the perfect bridal look for Sophie, whilst everyone enjoyed a delicious brunch prepared by A & Co, the resident caterers at Baddow Park House.
Meanwhile, the talented Sally from Halo Blossom was busy working her magic creating stunning floral installations for the grand sweeping staircase, the open fireplace within the entrance hall as well as centrepieces for the Orangery.
Sophie & Ravi chose to host their wedding ceremony within the Drawing Room at Baddow Park House, which with it’s stunning views overlooking the perfectly manicured gardens and large bay windows which allowed the spectacular autumnal sunshine to flood the room was the perfect location for their intimate ceremony.
We was lucky enough to be treated to the most glorious autumnal sunshine, which allowed for a canapé reception on the natural stone terrace, where the fizz was flowing and delicious canapés were served to guests, whilst the amazing Julia and You captured an abundance of beautiful photos, including a selection of adorable golden hour images.
As the sun set Sophie and Ravi’s evening guests begun to arrive and were welcomed into the stunning orangery by Sophie’s dad who delivered a beautiful and heartfelt speech, which was closely followed by an equally beautiful speech from Ravi and finally the best man.
Following speeches guests were entertained by Dos Tiempos a lively & energetic DJ & Drum Duo who did an incredible job of filling the dance floor for the entire evening. And to ensure no guest was left hungry the food was flowing all evening, which included copious amounts of delicious Mexican bowl food followed by freshly prepared mouth watering pizza’s.
I feel incredibly privileged to have planned Sophie & Ravi’s beautiful wedding day. They are an amazing couple with wonderful families and I loved every minute of planning their big day.
