PAULA ROONEY LUXURY WINTER WEDDING AT THE FOUR SEASONS HAMPSHIRE
Last Winter, award winning luxury wedding florist, Paula Rooney, one of the wedding industries most talented floral designers, celebrated her own luxury wedding at the prestigious Four Seasons Hampshire Hotel and we were extremely honoured to have been chosen as her wedding planner.
Paula’s vision for her wedding was absolutely stunning, she knew exactly how she wanted her wedding day to be and booked our Finishing Touches Service, which allowed her to style and plan each element of her wedding day, before handing everything to us, to pull everything together to ensure a seamlessly smooth and beautiful wedding.
Paula and Mike married at their local church in a small village in Hampshire. The church was beautifully dressed with pretty cream flowers and an abundance of scented greenery. After the service, the wedding party drove a short distance to the Four Seasons, where Paula and I had worked together few months earlier for Michael and Ryan’s wedding day, which was featured on Style Me Pretty.
On arrival at the hotel, guests were led to the drinks reception through an aisle of flickering Jo Malone scented candles, stunning pink flowers cascaded down the staircase directing guests through a Meijer Rose & Eucalyptus lined curtain arch, to the breath-taking rose flower wall backdrop, made from over 3,000 roses! Guests enjoyed a Champagne reception before we revealed the magical ball room, where the remainder of the day’s celebrations took place…
Paula wanted to create a variety of experiences and wonderful memories for her guests throughout the day, using scented candles, elaborate and beautiful flower arrangements, statement stationery, exquisite glassware, stylish charger plates, mother of pearl cutlery, golden pineapples, delicious food, first class service …..and unbeknown to the bride, the sweetest rendition of Frozens “Let it go” from her gorgeous daughter Gabby and a best man’s speech that included a guest appearance from Liverpool Football Manager, Jurgen Kloop!
The top table took centre stage in the ball room, with gorgeous gold stands, giving the illusion that the flowers were floating in the air. The base of the arrangements were surrounded by David Austin Roses and more candles. Located around the top table were the guest tables, each beautifully styled with masses of even more stunning arrangements. An incredible seven-tier wedding cake made by Cakes by Krishanthi stood on a gold mirrored dance floor in front of the stage, which had been wrapped gold sprayed palm leaves, the cake was removed just before The White Keys wedding band took to the stage ahead of the evenings celebrations .
We are lucky to be involved in planning so many beautiful weddings and needless to say, being a wedding industry expert, Paula had thought of absolutely everything – it was an absolute joy to be involved in such a wonderful wedding day – Thank you to Paula and Mike for choosing Planned for Perfection!
