Ivory and pale pink roses

Mary's wedding from 14th May.

Mary decided to carry a hand-tie design of roses, gyp and foliage. We used ivory and very pale pink roses to add some warmth. The tree fern and gyp softened the design with salal leaves forming a collar. The stems are covered in foliage and finished off with a thin satin ribbon wound decoratively around.
The five bridesmaids all carried a similar but smaller design to compliment their brown dresses and silver accessories.
The Mother of the bride wore a corsage of ivory roses, spray roses, gyp and tree fern.
The grooms-men all wore a single ivory rose buttonhole.

Washingborough Hall

A customer we have known for many years was married back in April. It was to be a small, intimate gathering at Washingborough Hall Hotel.
The colours for the day were blue and cream with lilies being a favourite flower. The style chosen for the bridal bouquet was a simple shower bouquet with Royal Fantasy aziatic lilies and blue hyacinth pips.
The buttonholes were ivory roses with hyacinth pips and the corsage incorporated lily buds and rolled rose petals.
The tables each had a posy of lilies, roses, hyacinths and chrysants.

Top table.
Washingborough Hall ready for the arrival of the bride and groom.

E-mailed to us a few days after the event by the bride:

Just to say a big thankyou for the wonderful flowers they were the best ever I would not use anyone else thankyou again Betty.
