Indian Summer Wedding Fair @ Hedsor House

HedsorHedsor House opened its doors this week to reveal the grandeur of this stunning Georgian stately home with an exquisite Indian Summer Wedding Fair. The country house which is suitably located within 45 minutes from London, and set in 100 acres of Buckinghamshire parkland with Grade II listed gardens, became a vision of illuminated splendour to the delight of the many visitors.

Privately-owned and immaculately sustained by the Shephard Family, Hedsor House is not only a luxury venue for weddings, it takes pride in making sure it is also seen as a contemporary and current venue, celebrating high profile events with clients and global brands such and Mercedez-Benz, BBC, Ferrari, Johnny Depp and our favourite George Clooney, who recently filmed his latest advert being kidnapped to Hedsor House for Nespresso!

Upon arriving at the grand entrance hall, guests were promptly transported into an aura of enchantment with lighting effects by Just Seventy Ltd – an event design management company, creating the exuberance to set the stage for an evening of quintessential wedding inspiration.

The heart of the Centre Hall with its domed ceiling, transformed into a ceremonial setting with an elegant archway of flowers by florist Wild About that streamed through the magnificent mansion – creating a bouquet of delightful scents and shades of an Indian Summer.

Hedsor House is renowned for its own historical features and period characteristics. Nonetheless, amongst the supreme heritage, the house also offers a blank canvass along with a natural radiance to create just the right ambience for that perfect country wedding.

Of course, for every wedding the reception is positioned at the very heart of the occasion, and to present its finery, there is nothing quite as prominent as the Grand Ballroom!   Catering for up to 150 guests the Indian Summer theme flowed into a selection of ostentatious table settings created by the artistic Rachel Ramsbottom of Create.  The inventive team from Create also supplied the delicious food throughout the evening, providing guests with a selection of succulent savoury and sweet canapés bursting with flavour and colours.

Bride Icon would like to thank Hedsor House for a wonderful evening.  It is the perfect country house for a luxury wedding with a picturesque backdrop for civil wedding ceremonies and blessings.  Not only can the ceremonies take place in the house and estate, but outdoor blessings can take part on the beautifully preserved green lawns.  Of course, Indian weddings –  as we know it – can be a large scale affair, but Hedsor House can equally take up to 800 guests with a marquee – making it the perfect Indian Summer wedding!
