Fiesta at The Fig House is a modern statement concept. A vibrant, & modern fiesta focusing on statement florals showing that wedding celebrations don’t have to fit to certain trends or styles but can truly push the boundaries in terms of what you want as a couple. Luxury weddings don’t have to be muted – an explosion of colour can still deliver true style!
The Fig House at Middleton Lodge was the perfect setting in Northern England, with the rustic adjoining Boiler House for a moody & intimate candlelit ceremony, whilst the orangery style Fig House is bursting with light and shadow, looking onto the walled gardens which looked their finest in the summer months.
In a world where styling with muted colour palettes, dried flowers and macramé is very much of the time, I wanted to create a look that was quite the opposite, something that was vibrant, fun, full of colour and energy. Working with textures, wildflowers, and light was the key to success.
If you’re working with a wedding planner, they should guide you on how to bring your vision to life, within budget. I worked very closely with Florist Daisy Hoban and Born Boho – getting a good vibe from your suppliers is a huge part of the sourcing process: make sure you like their style, that they can work within budget but also, make sure you get on and that you trust them to deliver your vision!
The floral concept was to showcase luxury in technicolour! Designing flowers that would ooze wild and vibrant with a modern twist. Focusing on bold colours and strong shapes to create maximum impact in this incredible venue. Daisy Hoban Florist mixed through coral coloured sweet peas, bright electric blue delphiniums, and pink cosmos as some of Daisy’s personal favourites to give all the festival fiesta vibes in a sophisticated way. Utilising the high ceilings at The Fig House, Daisy designed floral clouds to look as if they were floating above the dreamy tablescape. Using relaxed and unmanicured textures to work alongside the natural scenery creating one epic modern fairy-tale of a shoot! As well as the florals within The Fig House, Daisy also designed & created a one-of-a-kind statement flower crown to display floral artistry. A showstopper design that you could imagine on a runway in London fashion week or on the mainstage at Glastonbury…a Queen on the hippie’s fashion lovechild.
When planning your wedding, you should also think hard about how you can be more eco focussed, so the first thing that springs to mind is, avoid plastics. Recycle what you can and repurpose flowers which is exactly what we did. Moving flowers around the venue, making sure no florist foam was used, and having portable displays means you can hand them out to guests at the end of the night so, you are getting a real bang for your buck.
As a design accent to the technicolour florals, flowing ribbons on chair backs, dusky pink linens, stoneware pieces that seem straight out of a forgotten china cabinet on Calle Obispo & gold cutlery mixed old with new for a variety of tones and depth amongst the table meadow.
Sundown Paper delivered with an epic stationery wedding suite which is fun and full of personality; through colour, a modern design and a afresh take on the traditional wording –inspiration to give your guests something to be excited about.
With bridal designers on board such as Lazaro via Victoria Lou Bridal, Martina Liana via The Wedding Dress Company & Rembo Styling via Lace & Co Bridal, the bridal styling was all about glamour, looking good and feeling amazing. Accessories such as Daisy Hoban’s floral crown, one of a kind natural earrings & headpiece from Lilley Studio, and luxe earrings from Joanna Reed Bridal gave an extra edge to stand out. Romina Fochesatto provided a bespoke jumpsuit with lace cuffs &sequin fringed dress to take our brides from day to night and to show that you can still look incredible if you’re not a dress kind of girl. With a splash of colour in Always Dream Jewel’s statement earrings – crisp, modern outfits looked sharp against the celebratory styling. Sarah Haines, Hair & Makeup Artist kept skin dewy and fresh whilst a bold lip helped transition from day tonight.
For the gents; double breasted suits in neutral shades with a pocket meadow pop of colour, woven textured shoes, pastel braces & bow tie gave a modern, summer feel.
As a final touch of personality, Nus For Design created a striking bespoke illustrated invitation of our couple Nat & CJ to truly add the personal touch to your wedding.
