Gretna Green Wedding

I was asked by a friend and customer if I would be able to supply flowers for her son's wedding to be held at Gretna Green. Of course I can but they just have to be careful on the flowers chosen, as they were transporting them up there themselves the day before.

Cath, the bride, came in to discuss her options and we both decided a hand-tie would be the better design, for one thing it could be transported in a vase of water.
As colour scheme was to be red and ivory, Cath decided to carry red passion roses with diamante detail and ivory ribbon part way around the stems.

The two adult bridesmaids each carried a hand-tie posy of ivory calla lilies with ivory ribbon to complement their red dresses.The flower girl carried a small posy of red passion roses to match the bride.The grooms wore a double rose buttonhole.
The Mother of The Groom wore an ivory rose with gyp, bear grass and ruscus foliage.
The Mother of the Bride wore a corsage of red rose and dianthus sweet william.
The top table was a long and low design of white and red roses, carnations, alstroemeria, sweet william, and stallion chrysants.
All the bouquets were placed in a box, in vases of water well secured and packed. The buttonholes all had individual files of water, again securely fastened in a box. The bride and groom were then given instructions on how to look after them overnight and what to do before the ceremony.

We also supplied part of the table displays but these were artificial roses in small glass bowls with glass stones.

We were really pleased when two days after the wedding both the bride and groom came in to thank us for the flowers. They had lasted really well, so good in fact they had brought them home again and were now on display at home.
