Colour Pops Wedding!


As soon as I met Catherine and Dave at their first consultation I knew I would have fun creating the floral designs for their fabulous wedding at the William Cecil in Stamford. The fact that they would be sharing a wedding anniversary with me made it even better! They were keen to have flower designs in a natural style with lots of different textures and trailing foliage, and the colours they chose were a glorious mix of dusky shades with bright pops of colour, including blue, bright pink, peach and yellow.

 

 This fabulous wedding is the latest to be featured on my website – do take a look...

 

Bride's brightly coloured bouquet

 

Catherine’s natural-style textured bouquet included flowers in soft ivory, pink and peach shades complemented by trailing eucalyptus foliage in a silvery-grey with lime green seeds. Brighter pops of colour were brought in by incorporating  shocking pink nerines, bright blue anemones and trailing clematis and yellow craspedia and solidago – not to mention those fabulous peach/apricot Vuvuzela roses of course!

Catherine’s bouquet worked really well with the colour and style of her beautiful dress – here she is waiting for the ceremony to begin…

 

Natural style brightly coloured bridesmaid posies

 

The same mix of flower and natural trailing style was used to create the posies for the bridesmaids. Not a bad range of colours for November

I just love those fabulous sparkly dresses!

 

Flower spray buttonholes

 

The guys had buttonholes to match with lots of texture and variety, as well as colour, from those spiky blue eryngiums, round yellow craspedia and peachy-pink roses.

 

Flower heart for wedding ceremony

 

Can’t resist sharing a picture of the huge flower heart that was hung above the registrar’s table for the ceremony – it made quite a statement! Definitely one of my favourite pieces and I loved making this – even if it did take me rather longer than anticipated…

It was pretty heavy too – luckily the William Cecil has picture rails which were perfect for hanging it from!

 

After the ceremony the heart was moved to the marquee for the wedding breakfast – see if you can spot it in a later photo…

Marquee at the William Cecil decorated for the wedding reception

 

This artistic couple created such a lovely fun atmosphere for their wedding, with huge brightly coloured balloons, pinatas, specially made bunting and colourful table gifts for their guests - not to mention the box of dressing up accessories for the photos! So the flowers needed to work with the theme and add further touches of bright colour.

 

Balloons and flowers for the wedding reception

 

Here you can see how the simple vases of brightly coloured flowers worked with the colours of the balloons and bunting, as well as the gifts for the lucky guests.

Even the wedding cake, which was lovingly made by Catherine’s dad, was decorated with the same mix of flowers

The smiles say it all!

 

Many thanks to Catherine and Dave for letting me show you some of their photos, and if you are wondering who took the professional images, their brilliant photographer was Dylan Nolte (dylannoltephotography.com).
