A STUNNING WEDDING IN A TROPICAL BOTANICAL WONDERLAND, SET IN THE HEART OF SURREY

It is always a treat to shoot at RHS Wisley, I love going back year on year and was extremely happy when Gemma + Ed asked me to be their photographer.

Gemma + Ed love all things quirky and tropical, so they wanted their wedding venue to reflect that. They also wanted a space that was light, bright and that had a real WOW factor. Together they decided to get married at RHS Wisley a place that is also incredibly special to them as Gemma’s grandparents have spent a lot of time together over the years.

They had a very personal humanist ceremony at the Waterlily Pavillion, friends and family sung to ‘You can hurry love’ and after the I do’s everyone enjoyed some bubbles out in the sunshine of the walled gardens.

I took Gemma and Ed off to explore the stunning gardens which have expanded hugely over the years to its current size of 97ha (240 acres)
We started in the breathtaking cottage garden, famous for its stunning purple and white alliums and trained roses clambering up the arches and the breathtaking wisteria walk, it made the most beautiful backdrop for Gemma and Ed to have their photos taken.
We then headed to The Rock Garden, one of Wisley’s oldest, and most magnificent, features for more portraits before heading over to the main attraction – The Glasshouse.

The huge cathedral-like Glasshouse covers the area of 10 tennis courts and is just simply AMAZING. Stepping inside you will feel as though you have been transported into another world. This tropical area is all about huge leaves, extravagant flowers feeling that dry rainforest-like heat. Its impressive waterfall adds to the subtropical feel but also helps to creates a magical atmosphere.

Gemma and Ed dressed the room fantastically. The tables were full of stunning floras by Flowers by LuLu which gave the glasshouse a beautiful pop of colour. They also set up a DIY bar, photobooth area and had an irresistible naked cake decorated with succulents that fitted in with the decor so well.

As the sun started to set speeches flowed and everyone was ready to party. The glasshouse transformed from a light and bright ‘greenhouse’ to a colourful lit up jungle. People danced, drank, ate cheese and danced the night away.

This is the brilliant wedding of Gemma and Ed.
