Emerald green and ivory wedding flowers

These are Hayley's wedding flowers from August.

Hayley's bridesmaid wore long emerald green dresses and so we decided to keep all the flowers ivory with added foliage for the brides bouquet. Hayley loved this hand-tied design of all ivory roses with ruscus leaves between the flowers and folded aspidistra leaves around the outside. Diamante were added to half the roses for added sparkle. The stems were bound with emerald satin ribbon with a silver thin ribbon overlay.
The three adult bridesmaids each carried a simple bouquet of 3 ivory roses with the stems bound the same as the brides.
The groom wore a double rose buttonhole with the rest of the men wearing a single.
The ladies wore an ivory corsage of an ivory rose, rolled rose petals and ivory alstroemeria.

The Lincoln Golf Centre

Kayleigh's wedding reception was held at The Lincoln Golf Centre at Thorpe-on-the-Hill.
The top table was a long and low design of whites and creams, including lilies, roses, germini,carnations and stallion chysants.
Top table design in situ.
The table centres were small fish bowls with a plain ivory candle standing on a bed of crushed 'ice'. Kayleigh had wanted to make these herself but on being given a quote (for hiring of the vases and ice) it was as cheap to leave it to us. We deliver on the morning of the wedding and set them on the tables, giving the bride more time to get ready.

The Lincoln suite all ready to greet the bride and groom.

Please do ask your venue on the suitability of using candles before you decide you definitely want them. Some venues will not allow them to be lit.

The two bridesmaids carried a similar but smaller design.
The three flower girls each carried a gold star wand with a single white rose and sprig of alchemilla mollis and a gold bow.

Lisianthus wedding

Here we have Gemma's wedding flowers from July. Her colour theme was purple and white and she loved lisianthus. Her bouquet was a mix of purple, white with purple edging and white lisianthus. Also included was some fountain grass and a collar of salal leaves. The stems were bound with purple ribbon attached with small pearl headed pins.The three bridesmaids were wearing purple and each carried a similar bouquet but with the white and white with purple edge lisianthus.
The little flower girl carried a silver wand with white and white/purple lisianthus with fountain grass and a salal leaf.
All the men's buttonholes were white/purple lisianthus with asparagus fern.
The ladies wore a white lisianthus corsage with fountain grass, asparagus fern and gyp.
The reception was held at The White Hart (Lincoln). (2nd time for us this weekend) Unfortunately the tables were not ready for us on delivery, so we couldn't get any photos.
The table centres Gemma chose were a small fishbowl with 3 purple edged carnations sitting on glass 'ice' with bear grass swirls. She had decided to make her own centrepieces but on us giving a quote she realised it was better to leave it to us.
We also provided all the flowers for the church ladies so everything matched.

Just so you know:
Lisianthus and Eustoma are the same flower, some call it one, some the other.

St Helen's Church at Saxby

Joanne and Graham were married at St Helen's at Saxby. A lovely, unusual church built as a parish church and mausoleum.The two alcoves, one either side of the main door, were decorated with a fishbowl.
The windowsills were also decorated with a fishbowl each. These contained a delphinium, eustoma, sweetpeas, eryngium, freesia, roses, eucalyptus and bear grass. They were designed as a tall tied arrangement. These were also doubling up as table centres for the reception at The White Hart hotel, so although height was required I couldn't fill them out too much otherwise guests would be unable to see each other.
As the couple had 8 tables and only 6 were needed in church, (4 windows, 2 alcoves) we used the other two bowls either side the Altar area.

The Altar arrangement, which was doubling up as the top table arrangement.
