Intimate banquet at Pelham House

Before the wedding season hots up, I wanted to share with you one of the most beautiful weddings from this winter.

To get married by candlelight and then fly to Sri Lanka for winter sun seems like a good reason to get married in January. 

Lisa and Toby tied the knot at Pelham House in Lewes, with their two children Didi and Zac.

Lisa has a really elegant and individual style and she opted for a printed silk dress from Stella McCartney.

The reception was a dream for me to work on. We decided to create a winter garden, and I used lots of dried hydrangea, potted plants, lichen covered branches and fresh seasonal flowers including hellebores, muscari and narcissus.

Pelham House is a 16th Century townhouse with a really intimate feel. The ceremony room has stately wooden paneling which adds warmth and depth, perfect for a winter wedding. It also has a beautiful garden.  

I would really recommend checking it out if you are looking for a wedding venue in Sussex.
