Contemporary Wedding at Somerley House full of Ombre Pink
Think pinks are too sweet and feminine for you? Think again. I love this contemporary take on pink tones in weddings from Fine Art Curation member Lilli Kad Photography and florist Trille Floral in beautiful venue Somerley House. From the bold to the ombre, these pink floral accents are suitably sophisticated yet modern with a beautiful installation above the reception table. Just add sparkling rosé...
Somerley House in the Southern Highlands is leading the charge for bold colour this Spring. Gardens at the boutique wedding venue will be filled with pinks and spring flowers to set the scene for the new blast of colours for weddings this Spring.
Having lived in London and in New York for many years and bringing her own distinctly eclectic world of interior style to the wedding stage, owner Nadine O’Brien says its time that weddings moved away from what’s expected and we focus more on creating exciting theatre for our wedding clients. “Today’s weddings are so micro managed with endless tiney details that are cloned at every wedding across the land, and the spontaneity is often lost in the stress of getting every moving part to work on the day,” Nadine explains. “And in the end, every wedding looks the same. We say turn on a show, ramp up the excitement, inject some drama! We love everything botanical and are inspired by Baz Luhrmann’s “Secret Life of Flowers’, she explains. “Even down to the edible flowers on our Spring menu by the catering team at Harry’s on Green Lane, everything’s about flowers. Somerley House is surrounded by a vast country garden and the Garden Room where receptions are held, looks out on to the Potager Garden, all inspired by Nadine’s love for the botanical world.
This Sutton Forrest wedding venue feels more like an elegant boutique hotel inviting couples to embrace colour, getting theatrical and who are looking to escape from the ordinary giving their friends and families a show to remember. ” This Spring we’re predicting a dash of botanical colours ... peony and fuchsia pinks, violet and wisteria, ivy greens and blues. It will be a dazzling break from pastels and whites and when combined with a boutique garden venue, the results will be refreshing and exciting” she concludes.
