Romantic Garden Weddings at One Rochester
In its annual wedding fair on 18 May, One Rochester opened the gates of its enchanting secret gardens to more than 60 lovestruck couples, as it unveiled the elegant refurbishments of the past 3 months.
Its colonial-style façade promises a charming and intimate wedding venue, and white trellises imbue a Victorian romance to its lush gardens. A new central glass canopy graces the central alfresco area without obscuring One Rochester’s colonial charms. With the grounds and interiors beautifully decorated with wedding themes by HOST, couples didn’t need much imagination to picture their dream garden wedding.
As the sun gently cast a rosy glow on the verdant gardens, couples sampled wines and canapés by world-renowned Chef Jean-Philippe Patruno of UNA, One Rochester’s newly launched venue. Tastebuds were certainly tantalised by the intense flavours of Spanish, French and Italian cuisines, paired with the wines of each region.
In the soft twilight, couples witnessed the romance of a solemnisation ceremony under the graceful canopy of the central trellis, prettily lit with fairy lights. An aisle adorned with fresh flowers and trailing vines welcomed an adorable pageboy and his doggy escort, and the bride and groom, who exchanged vows against a backdrop of lush garden greenery and an elegant crystal chandelier.
Inside, three wedding concepts were showcased, each specially created by HOST, One Rochester’s expert team of wedding planners. Soft pastel shades and pretty florals harkened back to an English Tea Party of the Victorian era, with artfully suspended vintage frames to create a rustic backdrop and patterned teapots to complete the scene. An Elegant Chic mood was created with beautiful dusky lavender and white hydrangeas with crystal favours and crisp white linen, while the Rich Opulence theme made a bold statement with deep red roses, black lace and peacock feathers. Whether they want a summer fete or an intimate candle-lit dinner reception, couples were assured that HOST would work with them to customise their once in a lifetime experience.
