Gold and Marsala – Hylands House Wedding

Hylands House Wedding

Hylands House and Estate
is a BEAUTIFUL GRAND Grade II listed building situated in Chelmsford Essex.

Driving towards the venue through the lovely peaceful green estate it was hard to miss the beautiful white building with grand pillars in the distance.


Upclose the venue is equally impressive.

The Ceremony was to be held in the main building

The wedding breakfast/reception was to be held Hylands Marquee. The Marquee is a permanent fixture. A Modern Building with modern facilities draped like a marquee inside with beautiful crystal chandeliers.

The venue provides limewash chiavari chairs which is a bonus as really adds to the modern fairytale look.

Our Bride was very clear on her vision of the day. She’s a floral girl and wanted lost of flowers, and drama and bring colour to the plain white marquee.

Her colour scheme was Marsala, Gold, Ivory and Blush Pink.


The table centrepieces were a mixture of high vases with large posies of hydrangeas and roses with trailing wisteria and our extra large custom blossom trees, which are custom made by our PPE team.

The table settings include gold charger plates, Ivory Napkins wrapped with a blush pink rose.


The Top Table really is a beautiful classy setting. The Backdrop itself is made up of Warm LED light drape with a floral header. The sweetheart table lined with a voile skirt has top table flowers to match the backdrop.

To complete the setting the stage is set with gold and ivory bride and groom throne chairs and a LED LOVE Light sign.


No Wedding is complete without our LED Sparkle Dancefloor for that very important first dance.

      Stunning Silk Displays for your Wedding

      Weddings are expensive and with so much to consider it is important to keep an eye on your budget to be able to get the look you want without over spending.

      Wedding is such an important day. You are creating life long memories, you don’t want to look back and wish you did things differently or could have had this or that, having said that I also don’t think anyone should start married life with the stress of financial burden.

      Which is why we have decided to launch silk floral wedding decoration that are available to hire for your big day.

      Being a qualified florist I understand the advantages florals add to decor and how important a finished look is.

      Ofcourse there are many reasons to why using silk flowers can be an advantage over fresh flowers aside from costs.

      I mean how many of you think about what happens to the flowers afterwards, we often dress weddings with 30 plus tables – what do you do with the flowers of 30 plus centrepieces after?

      Also there is getting the flowers you want yet they are not in season. I personally love peonies and hydrangeas which is great if you plan to plan to get married in the summer as they are not available other seasons. With silk flowers you will not have that problem.

      Silk flowers do not wilt, you will have fresh looking florals lasting, even on the hottest days.

      Silk or Artificial flowers do not mean you will have tacky looking horrid looking displays. Here at Picture Perfect Events we only source very life like looking artificial flowers to work with.

      We do everything from centrepieces, top table arrangements, entrance displays, church displays, bouquets and much more, all available to hire.

      Giving you a spectacular setting that is hassle free and environmental friendly.

      To give you an idea of what can be achieve with our beautiful silk flowers have a look at some of our work we have done at various events.


      This is one of our most popular designs the full ivory rose ball centrepiece used on a mixture of high conical vase and low cube vase at Hackney Assembly Halls. The posy of beautiful ivory roses are so elegant and versatile it can be used at an array of different venues.

      here is the same posy on a small slim lily vase at the Sheraton Skyline Hotel in Heathrow



      And again used with a conical vase at the Regent Banqueting Venue in Finchley


      The tall conical vase is the most versatile and most popular vase. The height of the vase give height to the centrepiece which is perfect for high ceilings and creates a luxury look and suits any venue.

      Have a look at the examples below of different designs with the conical vase

      Another firm favourite of all centrepieces are candelabras. Everyone loves a candlelit dinner as it’s romantic and provides the perfect mood for your wedding breakfast.

      Have a look at our different designs…. yes, all decorated with our premium artificial flowers.

        Drapes and Sparkle – Royal Chace Hotel Wedding

        Royal Chace Hotel Wedding

        The Royal Chace Hotel is situated in Enfield. It’s tranquil surroundings and gardens makes an ideal backdrop for a countryside wedding just on the outskirts of London.

        The Queen’s Suite can cater for up to 250 people and has beautiful views of the Hertfordshire countryside and the London Skyline.

        Today we will be sharing a beautiful wedding summer wedding celebrating Linh and John’s big day.

        Prior to meeting our Bride Linh we had already done a few weddings at the Royal Chace Hotel so we were very familiar to the venue. Linh already had a clear idea of the look she wanted. Her colours were pink and white and wanted a very traditional fairytale wedding look.

        The Room itself already has it’s own charm – it has exposed dark wooden beams, circular iron hanging light fittings and mood lighting.

        Linh thought although nice didn’t really fit her fairytale theme and felt the room felt too dark.

        So we found some solutions to add as much light as we could.

        royal chace hotel wedding enfield

        The Ceilings were draped to mask the iron light fittings to soften the look of the room, we used our Sparkle LED White Dancefloor to create more light on floor level.

        We tried to brighten up the venue making most of the decor white with touches of pink.

        We used candelabra’s to give the candlelit romance feel Linh wanted.



        Thank you Kenny Wong Photography for the above picture

        If space is an issue or you would just like guests close by during the wedding breakfast. The tables and chairs can he used on top of our premium dance floor and moved after the wedding breakfast ends.

          A Grand Affair – The Decorium Wedding Venue

          Decorium Wedding Venue

          The Decorium Wedding Venue in Wood Green London really is a spectacular wedding and events venue.

          The venue itself was built in 1895 and and was once used as a public swimming pool before being totally transformed into a beautiful and grand venue.

          The current venue retained the original character of the old arch shaped ceiling of the old swimming baths.

          I love a before and after picture personally and couldn’t resist posting this



          The venues, high arch ceilings with beautiful crystal chandeliers and roman pillar detailing and moonlighting comes together perfectly making this a dream wedding venue.

          We’ve done this venue a few times now and absolutely love it and get excited every time we meet a bride who is getting married here.

          Today we will be sharing our latest wedding here and our couple Lois and Dorian had gone all out on their decor and knew from the beginning on what they wanted. They wanted the look of elegance and use of whites and ivory with touches of purple.

          chandelier draped backdrop decorium wood green

          The stage with the top table showcased our GRAND CHANDELIER BACKDROP. This totally was the star of the stage.

          The top table was lined with our lace iridescent sequin table skirt with a spray of gorgeous flowers provided by Ramels Florist in Potter’s Bar

          Although the theme is purple using too much purple with the moodlighting will make the venue look too dark so we used white floral balls on a large cylinder vases and added just small touches of purple with 3 smaller cylinder of purple roses.

            Drape and Dress – Avenue Halls Wedding Transformation

            Avenue Halls Wedding Transformation

            Here at Picture Perfect Events we do not just dress fancy hotels stately homes. Today we will look at how we transform a simple church hall into something truly spectacular.

            When it comes to choosing a venue there is so much to consider. Capacity, location, logistics, flexibility and whether it suits your chosen theme.

            Perhaps a certain venue has some meaning or significance to you and your partner.

            Our bride chose Avenue Halls as it the church she grew up going to so holds a significance to herself.

            A lot of her guests would have seen the church hall before as it was normally so she wanted it to look extra special and totally transform the room to wow her guests.

            Avenue Halls Wedding

            The venue itself is actually quite charming. It has beautiful curves arches and big grand pillars.

            The venue itself also had a drab curtain in the far end and many pictures on the side wall that we couldn’t remove. We had just the solution for this.

            Grecian Backdrop Avenue Halls Wedding

            We used our Luxury Grecian Backdrop on the far end back wall to cover the curtain. The luxury heavy swags on the backdrop compliments the venues grand features. We added lighting to the backdrop to enhance the backdrop creating the perfect focal point.

            purple and ivory top table floral spray arrangement

            A large fresh floral centrepiece sits in the middle of the top table which has matching swag (drape) to the backdrop.

            Wall Venue Draping Avenue Halls Wedding

            We used our soft super luxe voile wall draping to cover the side walls, no more pictures in sight, just the perfect blank canvas to add our magic touches.

            ivory silk rose tall vase centrepiece avenue halls wedding

            As the venue has very high ceilings, we used ivory silk flowers on a tall conical vase with a cracked vase effect filler. To see more silk flower designs please visit our sister company wesbite Faux Flourish

            Ivory sashes were used on the chairs with a diamante buckle.

                    Our Bride Faith had a clear vision of what she wanted. Her vibrant pink and purple colours scheme suited her wedding venue perfectly and added the glam factor she was looking for.

                    Faith wanted a vibrant look to brighten up her venue.

                    We used Pink Orchids and Purple Roses to create a large floral posy on a tall cylinder vase to create a luxury centrepiece which stands out and adds colour to the venue.

                    Each table also had 3 smaller cylinder vases with candles and silver tea light votives which would be lit to give a romantic candlelit feel.
