Euridge Manor Secret Garden Wedding Design

Filed under:

Euridge Manor is ranked amongst the top venues in the UK, and having visited in person for the first time it’s easy to see why. It’s the absolute dream for a Cotswolds wedding planner and stylist to get their hands on.

Hidden amongst the rolling hills of the Cotswolds, Euridge has to be seen to be believed. The grounds offer an array of versatile spaces in which you can choose to marry and hold your reception, and are all picture-perfect stunning.

I was recently tasked with designing for a wedding editorial with a Secret Garden vibe, and there was no better backdrop than Euridge Manor. As I mentioned, you’re truly spoiled for choice with spaces here, from the iconic chandelier to the sunken garden lake and adorning boat house, all offering a backdrop that’ll work with any number of wedding plans and designs.

The garden terrace overlooking the boating lake was my choice of setting for a secret garden inspired tablescape. The terrace columns wrapped with vines of wild roses making it the perfect spot.

As with all of my designs, the focus was on layering different textures to build a tablescape that had interest whilst still being warm and inviting for you and your wedding guests dining at it.

Opting for a textured, soft ivory base linen, the table blended seamlessly into its terrace surroundings. If you’ve been here a while, you’ll know what an advocate I am for upgrading your wedding linens. It’s a relatively inexpensive change that makes a world of difference to both the look and feel of your wedding breakfast.

Although I’m always keen to layer textures to create a tablescape with depth and interest, it doesn’t mean that everything needs to be a different colour. Here, I chose to keep the table settings neutral whilst pops of strong colour came from the stunning Spring floral arrangements. Bright orange poppies and deep burgundy tulips offering the best of the season.

Natural rattan place mats were paired with stoneware dinner plates and beautiful embroidered napkins. Rather than using gold, I opted for an elegant cream cutlery set.

The stationery for each guest, featuring a wedding menu and place name was beautiful. It was kept whimsical and delicate to reflect the surroundings with a floral border surrounding the calligraphed menus.

Alongside the beautiful florals, I nestled luxurious mini table lamps (which are becoming ever so popular for my 2024 and 2025 weddings!). These instantly elevate a wedding tablescape and are great for a bit of extra ambient lighting.

The whole look was brought together with tall, tapered Ester and Erik candles in shades of Rosy Caramel and Zinc Pearl. It wouldn’t be a secret garden without adding a touch of fruit so elegantly placed grapes and peaches completed the design.

It was an absolute pleasure to be able to plan, design and style a wedding set up at Euridge Manor for the first time and I can’t wait to be back with a few real couples soon!

I hope you’ve felt inspired by this lovely set up which would work perfectly across the wedding seasons. Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box when it comes to your wedding styling – chances are people might scoff if you mention using grapes on your tables, but as you can see, in the right place they’re the perfect accompaniment!

With love,
