An Intimate, Charming Ceremony Celebration – Kate and Justin

Every event room in Fulham Palace has a different style, size and personality which means we can cater for all weddings great and small.

Kate and Justin were looking for an elegant space for a small, intimate ceremony and our Bishop Terrick’s Drawing Room was just what they were looking for. This room is one of the prettiest in the Palace and is licensed for a civil ceremony for up to 50 guests. It’s also a bright room and full of natural daylight, ideal for anyone hoping to make the most of spring weather.

Antique-wash stick back chairs were used to create the ceremony aisle and were matched with flower colours in soft, pale pinks and sage greens. As you can see, the couple made the most of the floor to ceiling bookshelves at the back of the room by decorating with personal photographs and special, relationship mementos.  

What these photos can’t show you is how AMAZING these floral displays smelt. Florist Helen Main Ellen  used eucalyptus and jasmine in the displays. The warmth from the large windows warmed the petals and as guests arrived and took their seats they brushed past the bouquets – the scent was simply phenomenal. http://helenmainellen.com/fulham-palace/

It was a picture perfect British spring day which meant that after the ceremony, guests were able to have photographs taken in the Tudor Courtyard. Photographer Becky Male captured all of the happy smiles  http://blog.beckymalephotography.com/2013/04/09/wedding-photography-at-fulham-palace-london/ 

As well as the scented jasmine and eucalyptus, florist Helen Main Ellen used three types of roses in the floral bouquet: Quicksand, Sweet Avalanche and Metallina. The tones are soft and romantic, truly elegant.

The tall sash windows of the Bishop’s Terrick’s Drawing Room look out onto the rolling lawns of the Palace gardens. They really bring the outdoors in.

This is the sight that greeted arriving guests. The Tudor Courtyard was used for photographs after the ceremony.

The urns contain box trees and the flowerbeds are budding with lavender. It was a picture perfect British spring day, a sky full of fluffy clouds and a garden full of green shoots and early flowers.
