Having met the owner of White Syke Fields (WSF) Charlotte, back in January when she was just starting to advertise the barns and I created a photo shoot there, we’d kept in touch about her proposal to do an official launch of the venue so more people became aware of the ability to rent it.

Charlotte wanted to invite a lot of collaborators who had done bits – such as photo shoots, to join forces and show just some of the things you could do at the venue.

Having discussed the possibility of hosting supper clubs together in the past, I offered to assist by styling a large dining set up in one of the barns so visitors could visualise how their own intimate set up could be if they hired the place. 

I wanted everything to have an extra special touch so I contacted All Things Borrowed to use Hannah’s fabulous furniture to use two of her Dawson tables and her mix and match chairs to seat 20 guests.

I then asked Bethan from Bureau Botanay who I’d worked with on the original shoot there in January, if she would be interested in helping me dress the tables with bud vases of flowers and brass candle stick holders as I’d acquired some gorgeous jewel toned candles.

With thanks to Dom’s Kitchen for the loan of crockery and cutlery and Louisianna’s bar for the loan of glassware, the table was really coming together but to add the finishing touches, I asked Heidi from The Embroided Napkin Company if I could use some of her different designs.

Heidi had some samples of some beautiful napkins which had menus printed on them. This would be such an elevated touch for an intimate event so I mixed those with some monogramed napkins in a matching colour scheme.

I then asked Carolyn from Gray Starling Designs if she could provide a stationery suite so I added name cards, menus to the place settings which didn’t have those napkins, and table numbers.

The last fitting piece was a stunning cake from Where The Ribbon Ends which matched the stationery beautifully. 

Below are some images captured by Lissa Alexandra, which I have the permission to share with thanks to her and WSF. If you would like anything similar putting together for a private event then please do not hesitate to get in contact.
