Natalie and Sebastian
were married in what feels like a real life version of a secret garden. The Asha Centre’s grounds ‘nestle within a forest valley around which banks of trees rise up into the distance on all sides’. A truly romantic setting.
Decor: Simple. Elegant. Middle Eastern Twist.
Natalie and Sebastian are the most relaxed, laid back bride and groom you could ever meet. Most of all they wanted simplicity. Natalie described her approach as ” Natural and not too high maintenance!”.
Decor was kept minimal, letting the beautiful surroundings speak for themselves. Outside, the flower garden was in bloom; inside the tent single stems and simple bouquets ornamented round and long tables spread with white linen.
The Berber tent and awning lit up with festoon lighting; paper globes added in the Berber tent giving warmth and colour.
Most Memorable Moment
“Walking around the gardens (the morning after the wedding) in the early morning sunlight and taking it all in was pretty sublime!“
Natalie and Sebastian’s top tip for organising a wedding:
“Perspective! It is an important day but it will be beautiful whatever happens when you are marrying your soul mate and celebrating with the people you love. Give yourself time, don’t get sucked in by hype…only invite the people you want to be there, and chill out!”
How they did it
No of guests
The Berber Tent and a 6m x 4m woodsman’s awning were set up side by side on the lawn.
Choir matting was used in the Berber Tent. The awning was erected on the lawn without walls or flooring.
Using the space
Natalie and Seb choose a mixture of round and rectangular tables, with folding wooden chairs to accommodate their guests for a sit-down meal. These were cleared away in the evening for live music and dancing.
Both structures were lit up with 100 metres of festoon lighting. Paper globes were added in the Berber tent.
A hired generator powered lighting and the sound system for the band.
