RECOMMENDED WEDDING PLANNER AT CHISWICK HOUSE AND GARDENS
Chiswick House and Gardens is an absolutely stunning venue which I simply ADORE! The Venetian inspired architecture set in tranquil and peaceful gardens is just beautiful. As an experienced wedding planner, I am here to tell you everything that you need to know about planning a wedding. Chiswick House is unique and offers three gorgeously different spaces in which to host your wedding for you to chose from; The Burlington Pavilion, The Conservatory and of course, Chiswick House itself.
Civil ceremonies for your wedding at Chiswick House and Gardens can take place in the main house and in the Conservatory. There are many beautiful churches nearby if you wish to have a religious ceremony before hand. You could also choose to have a more personalised and unique humanist ceremony, set in the beautiful Italian gardens.
THE WEDDING RECEPTION
For large numbers, the Burlington Pavilion is the perfect place to host your Reception. It is a beautiful semi permanent marquee set within the gardens of the house. As the venue is ‘dry hire’, this means you will need to hire in many of the elements needed to create your wedding, such as furniture and lighting. You, or your wedding planner, will be responsible for managing and coordinating the details and logistics for the day, alongside the in house wedding coordinator at Chiswick House. Catering at Chiswick House and Gardens is provided by the Food Show, who are one of London’s very finest and who’s food is simply delicious.
I believe that having brilliant entertainment at your wedding is key to throwing a sensational event that your guests, and you, will always remember. As well as considering what music you might play as part of the ceremony, it is really important to consider what entertainment you will chose for the evening. A live band is always a huge success and always guaranteed to have your guests dancing all night long!
SELECTING THE REST OF YOUR LONDON WEDDING SUPPLIERS
Chiswick House and Gardens wedding venue is a ‘dry hire’ venue. This means that you are provided with the venue in which to host your celebration, but must organise all of the other elements yourself. This includes suppliers such as caterers, production companies, furniture hire and lighting. It is also worth noting that the venue is a Grade I listed Heritage estate, and so there are specific rules that your wedding suppliers must adhere to.
STYLING YOUR WEDDING
How would you like your day to look and feel? Creating a mood board that highlights your colour scheme, the type of floral design you would like, styles of cake and how you would like your tables to look is a great way to get started, and of course perfect to share with your suppliers so that they can create a cohesive look. Pinterest and Instagram are great places for some ideas. This is one of the first things I do when I start working with a new couple. I like to ask lots of questions to tease out the details of the day. It’s really important to get to know each other so that I can ensure your day reflects what’s important to you and your story.
