There’s not much time for blogging during the busy wedding season, but I’ll take a moment to share some beautiful spring/summer bouquets!!
This amazing August wedding was meticulously and beautifully planned by Tamera. She herself wants to get into wedding planning and definitely has more than enough talent to do it! (Once she gets her business up and running, I’ll pass on her contact information. She has absolutely amazingly creative ideas!!). Tamera came to me with a vision for her flowers and we “bounced” ideas off each other over months of planning to bring her vision to life. I don’t even know what to say about this wedding… The always fabulous Heather from HRM Photography captured every detail and the atmosphere so perfectly that I’ll just let the photos speak for themselves! It was hard to choose just a few photos to show, so this will be a big post!
The adorable bride carried a bouquet of garden roses and callas in shades of pink, and cymbidium orchids in pinks and greens.
I’m loving this trend of vibrant shoes for the bride! (This can be a perfect way to infuse a bit of your wild side into an otherwise tame wedding dress).
The bridesmaids carried similar bouquets to the bride but we added in green berries to add a bit more pop against their chocolate brown dresses.
The Groom wore a calla-orchid combo while the groomsmen wore a single green orchid with berries.
Some great shots from the ceremony! –
Tamera ordered a custom monogrammed runner. We framed the ceremony by decorating the mantle with a garland, orchids and candles and setting two large coordinating pink and green floral arrangements on deep chocolate brown stands. The finishing touch is the chandelier dripping with crystals and green dendrobium orchids!
In the corner tree, green orchids and candlelight “danced” above the gifts below!
The reception flowers were a combination of low full floral arrangements and tall willow arrangements that really suited the rustic elegance of Bellamere.
We “dolled up” the centre chandelier with strands of crystals.
A single green dendrobium bloom accented each napkin.
The cake is placed on a stand of single green cymbidium blooms in square vases. Pink and green cymbids adorn the cake along with a crystal monogram topper.
Love this photo! It almost makes you want to say “And they lived happily ever after!”
Michelle was one of those brides that has a real talent for planning! (She has informed me that she is seriously contemplating wedding planning as a career, because she enjoyed the process so much! And she’d be good at it!) The wedding was in Hamilton at the Ancaster Old Mill (beautiful, romantic venue!), but we planned and created her flowers here in London. Michelle came to me with a specific colour scheme and all the details in place, except for her flowers which she needed a bit of help with. We worked with her colour palette of lively oranges, pinks and browns to create fresh and fun flowers that really popped against the October leaves!
The beautiful bride and her vibrant bouquet composed of garden roses, standard roses and pink hydrangea!
The couple was married in front of the beautiful stone fireplace. On the chairs were cones of flowers.
I just love the intimate setting and feel of the reception!
So I mentioned this bride is an exceptional planner…Check out how perfectly coordinated the reception table details are! The hot pink candles and orange packaged favours are a perfect compliment to the flowers. The centerpieces are created in a brown metal container with coordinating orange and pink ribbon detailing. By the way, the favours are lottery tickets!! I wonder if any guests left the wedding richer than they came!?
