Ivory rose wedding

Nikki's wedding from Saturday.
This was a church wedding and fortunately for the bride and groom it was being held on the open weekend for churches in their area and as such would be decorated with flowers anyway. So all left for me to arrange was the bridal flowers and buttonholes.
Nikki brought in a picture of a bouquet she wanted me to re-create. We chose the gorgeous Maroussia rose as it is large headed and scented. These together with gyp, tree fern and salal tips create a stunning classic bouquet. The stems are entirely bound together with an aspidistra leaf and thin ivory satin ribbon was then wound around this to add detail and interest to the handle.
Her bridesmaid had a similar design but with less roses to make it smaller.
The groom wore a maroussia rose buttonhole with gyp, salal and tree fern.
The men wore a single maroussia rose buttonhole with tree fern and the ladies had similar but with a sprig of gyp.

Thank you bouquets were provided for the reception speeches.
