Spring Hycroft Manor Wedding

July 18, 2022

Somewhat like an oxymoron, there is one thing that is certain when we think about the weather in Vancouver, and that is…it’s unpredictable. Early spring is typically filled with rain, but often by May, warm weather creeps in and there are more warm sunny days than not. However this year, spring had a slow start and for this May wedding, the weather was still cool and quite rainy. 

The Design

We designed our couple M&B’s wedding, to showcase the beautiful spring flowers and the start of life again after the winter season. But with rainy weather reported on the forecast for a week or more before the wedding, we hoped that the unpredictability of Vancouver’s weather will change and we will be blessed with a rainless wedding day. Gratefully, there was no rain on the day, but because of the nonstop rainy days leading up to the wedding, the grass was too soggy and soft for the wedding guests and our couple to walk comfortably on. So the day before the wedding, we decided to change the location of the ceremony and have it on the side terrace.

We are the first vendor to ever hold a wedding ceremony on the side of Hycroft Manor‘s terrace, but we thought it would be the perfect location for our couple and their guests. With the rose garden in the background and lush greenery on one side and the house on the other, it was the perfect place for an intimate wedding. 

As mentioned, this wedding design was to focus on the beautiful spring flowers. We were inspired by the delicate beauty of spring blooms and opted for plenty of blush pinks and neutrals for the colour palette for a soft and elegant look. Greenery throughout the floral arrangements and the venue’s surrounding blooms also gave the wedding that beautiful spring flavour.

From the beautiful ceremony, we created an intimate and beautiful reception area with a focus on the sweetheart table. Tall floral columns surrounded the half moon sweetheart table with an elegant high back loveseat as their chairs for a more romantic atmosphere. Completing the floral columns are lush ground floral arrangements in front of the table to create an illusion of being enveloped by florals. 

To the side of the sweetheart table, we wanted to include something meaningful for our couple. One of our bride’s favourite things are tea and desserts. So for her wedding, a special design was created to include a beautiful dessert display. All the desserts were hand picked  and designed in soft blush tones with plenty of fresh florals. There was also a statement wedding cake with plenty of florals and a large ground floral arrangement beneath the shelf to give the dessert display a blooming floral effect. 

A Spring Elegance Celebration

Whether it’s the blooming spring florals, the colour palette, the invitations or the overall design of the wedding, we wanted to give the feeling of a relaxed spring elegance. The rain barely held off, the grass was soaking wet, and there was still a chill in the air. But as spring marks the beginning of life again, this warm and intimate celebration also marks the beginning of M&B’s new life together.
