Lizzie & Ed

A luxury Spring wedding in Norfolk

MARRIED AT SHOTESHAM PARK

After tying the knot with a church wedding close to their family home, Lizzie and Ed travelled in style to become the first ever couple to have their reception at this stunning South Norfolk wedding venue. Planned and styled by the Norfolk Wedding Planner Hardesty Event Design, a vision for encompassing the couple’s personality and passion for flowers was top priority.

With Ed being a fifth generation flower grower and Lizzie having her own flower-growing business, floral opulence was key to the planning and design. The effortless beauty of family-grown tulips took centre-stage, with the creation of a stunning two-tier 5ft tulip chandelier surrounding the top table. All blooms were British, locally and ethically sourced with foam free mechanics. Fun evening styling saw sumptuous pinks meet sparkling disco balls to create statement dancefloor decor to make the seamless transition from day-to-night.

With Lizzie having a dream of her guests being taken on a journey, Hardesty Event Design offered suggestions to ensure guests had an experience they’ll never forget. A create-your-own bouquet provided a modern, fun twist on wedding favours, with a saxophonist joining the dancefloor to create the ultimate party vibe in the evening. A unique send-off saw Lizzie and Ed walk through a tunnel of guests with cold sparks sending them off on their mini-moon break in the back of a black cab – an iconic journey to mark the start of married life together.
