Jennifer and Jack’s Elegant Summer Wedding

Weddings - 23.01.19

With an opulent colour scheme, beautiful flowers, exceptional food and sunshine, this wonderful August wedding day at Braxted Park was a treat for all.


Jennifer and Jack were searching for a beautiful wedding venue in Essex and fell in love with Braxted Park straight away. They set their August wedding date and started to plan.

“It had everything we were looking for and more. The grounds are stunning, and Braxted Park accommodates the whole wedding day from start to finish. There were also beautiful spaces for us both to get ready and lovely bedrooms for our guests.”


After scouring Pinterest, the happy couple decided on an elegant, understated vintage theme with purple, gold and lilac as the main colours.

“Purple is my favourite colour and gold brought an element of glamour in to the decoration. A lot of the flowers in the grounds were purple too – a perfect match!”

Alongside beautiful blooms, decorations included wedding photographs of their parents and grandparents and stylish stationery in their chosen colours.


Flowers were the main form of decoration, embracing the opulent colours of the day.

Gold mercury glass vases and bottles were filled with flowers and displayed on the tables with candles and tea-lights.

“All our arrangements were created by the team at Luke and Lottie Floral Design. Their designs are simply stunning.”


Having dreamed of the perfect wedding dress and spent hours pouring over designs in magazines and online, Jennifer and her mother found ‘the dress’ in the first boutique they visited.

“I chose a dress from the White Rose range where you can combine elements from different dresses. I chose the skirt from one gown with the bodice of another and customised it further with buttons down the back to the end of the train.”

The beautiful bride completed her look with gold Kate Spade shoes and simple jewellery.

Meanwhile, Jack looked the part in a charcoal grey suit from the ‘Taylor Me’ range at Moss Bros.

As for the four bridesmaids…flowing one-shoulder lilac gowns along with sparkly gold shoes were a perfect choice.


Jennifer and Jack married in The Orangery, looking out over the beautiful gardens at Braxted Park.

“Waiting in the adjoining Lantern Room was so exiting. I couldn’t wait to see Jack and all our guests. A string quartet played as our guests arrived and throughout the ceremony which was a really special touch for us.”

On this wonderful summer’s day, a drinks reception was held in the walled garden and garden games were set up to entertain the children (and some of the adults!).

Moving in to dine, Milsoms caterers created an exquisite menu, starting with red onion, sun-blushed tomato and ricotta tart and moving on to roast sirloin of beef with dauphinoise potatoes. And for pudding… a peach and raspberry ripple cheesecake.

“We wanted to accommodate as many tastes as possible and also to complement our summer wedding. The food was delicious and beautifully presented.”


As day turned to evening, a band called Electric Ocean played three sets and proved to be a great success. The newlyweds took to the dancefloor for their first dance to ‘Everlong’ by the Foo Fighters and an informal barbecue was served in the Walled Garden.

“It tasted wonderful and kept people going in between the band sets!”


“Seeing each other at the start of our ceremony and saying our vows in front of so many people that we love.”

“Both the catering team at Milsoms and the planning team at Braxted Park were wonderfully helpful. Our ‘on the day’ event manager was Jonathon from Braxted Park and he helped the whole day run smoothly. He truly made us feel like nothing was too much trouble.”
