It was a treat to be offered the opportunity to decorate the long table in the panelled dining room of the elegant Tofte Manor – located in the beautiful countryside of Bedfordshire.

The Manor house still retains its purpose as a home, which gives it a relaxed atmosphere of privacy and comfort and (unlike a hotel) Tofte never have more than one wedding a weekend, allowing the couple to make full and exclusive use of this beautiful home, its fabulous grounds and the well-tended gardens.

It was a pleasure to work on the design with Emma Remington Flowers – who opted for a neutral palate of fresh whites and greens.  Incorporating hellebores and tulips to reflect the newness of the Spring season!

The table was styled using a selection of glass, crystal and mercury aged products from the Wedding Day Hire range, successfully creating an elegant yet informal combination of flowers and decorative pieces.

The result:  a wonderful fresh and inspirational table which ‘sat’ exceptionally well in the splendour of this fabulous venue.
