It’s the August bank holiday weekend, the sun is shining and the weather is warm. Summer is finally here and what better way to celebrate than to say “I do” to your soul mate and best friend in front of all your friends and family, at the beautiful Hampton Court House.

The stunning 18th century grade II listed building backs onto Bushy Park, Surrey, where through the large entrance hall and tall gold trimmed Georgian windows, deer can be seen roaming freely. Each wing of this building is as impressive as the last, with a grand theatre hall and radiant conservatory, the attention to detail is awe-inspiring. The architect Thomas Wright not only designed the ornate details of this beautiful building but also the “Winter Garden”; housed with towering palm trees and intricate tiled floor, a heart shaped lake and the complex decorated Shell Grotto.

Hampton Court House had always been a dream wedding location for the bride since she saw the building as a little girl, and it is clear to see why!

As some of you may remember, I was approached by this lovely couple to be apart of their special day by illustrating a detailed design of their wedding location, for their wedding stationary. The wedding stationary can start with the “Save The Dates”, the very first step for guests to see the style and theme of the wedding day, right up to the “Thank you” cards and a whole lot of information in-between. To be a part of something so personal and intimate is very special.

To continue with the creative and bespoke theme of the wedding stationary, the bride approached me to do a piece that was a touch more personal, for the main person she was celebrating her day with – her future husband.

As a token of her love and a keepsake of the day they became man and wife, she gave him a watercolour rendering of their venue, Hampton Court House.
