Last Friday I did a beautiful wedding at Rookery Hall, Kirsten my lovely American bride went for a vibrant colour pallet, with oranges, creams, purples, and greens, they went stunning together.
Kirsten went for a cascading bouquet for herself, she didn't want anything to over powering in size, so I created a elegant and neat design, that suited her perfectly. Within her bouquet she had Roses, Veronica, Bupleurum, Lizzie, Astilbe, Thistle, fresh lavender and lots of lovely foliage's, such as Eucalyptus and soft ruscus, a favourite of mine to use in wedding work.
You can just see a touch of her Scottish theme in her cascading bridal bouquet,I used her husbands family tartan McDonald of the Isles, in subtle little loops and it complemented the colours so well!
The maid of honour had a hand tied bouquet, tied with satin ribbon and a bow. I managed to source tulips for this, the brides favourite, they really did look beautiful. Her design was more of a vibrant look, it was important to match with the bridal bouquet but to look different in its own way, I think we achieved that.
The flower girl carried a pretty wicker basket with a cute little satin bow, she had orange and lilac petals to scatter down the isle.
I also created 4 pretty wrist corsages for the bridal party, using dainty flowers in cream and lilac, they included spray rose, lavender, thistle, and Astilbe, as well as Eucalyptus foliage.I finished them with a satin bow and they were very in keeping with the overall theme.
Both the ceremony and the reception was held at rookery hall, the large function room was split in half into two sections for the occasion.
Starting with the ceremony, Kirsten had large white pillars as her pedestals, supplied by me, they really framed the room and made a statement. We used large cylinder vases to sit on these, with large ball arrangements on top, they had matching flowers to the bridal party, if not slightly more vibrant, with orange and acid green throughout with touches of Cadburys purple too. We used trailing Amaranthus and foliage for these to finish of the look. I also supplied a matching table arrangement in the centre of the room.
For the Reception I created simple yet effective fishbowls, in the bowls I put fresh lavender and orange Gerbera. I also put a little cylinder vase in the centre of the design with a floating candle, that made the look, and can only imagine how nice they would have looked in the evening when they were lit.
Finally I supplied a few jam jars for the bar tables, a popular choice amongst brides. I decorated these particular ones with hessian, dried lavender and a satin bow, they were very cute.
It was a complete pleasure to be involved in this Cheshire Wedding, with American and Scottish inspirations. I was very happy with the final look and wish the lovely couple a long and happy life together, Congratulations!
