Charlotte House Hotel Civil Service

Jo's wedding was held at Charlotte House Hotel. The ceremony was in the Library.

The civil ceremony table arrangement, which was later to be moved to the top table, was a mixture of ivory and purple flowers. Included were 'picasso' calla lilies, eustoma, alstroemeria and roses.
The matching pedestals framed the ceremony table perfectly.

The view as you walk into the library at Charlotte House, all set up for the wedding ceremony.

Purple and ivory wedding flowers.

Now we are in to Septembers weddings.
Here we have Jo's wedding flowers. Jo found us through this blog, so it is only right to finally get around to posting her flowers.
The theme was purple and ivory with all the flowers being based around this lovely calla lily 'picasso'.
Jo's bouquet was a mass of 'picasso' callas tied together with the stems bound with ivory satin ribbon.
Her three adult bridesmaids each carried an overarm wand of three 'picasso' calla lilies again with ivory satin ribbon bound around parts of the stems.
A flower girl carried a rag doll dressed in suitable colours and we provided a small calla lily buttonhole to add to the outfit.
The grooms-men all wore a single 'picasso' calla lily with bear grass and a single ivy leaf.
The mums were provided with double calla lily buttonholes.

The Old Palace, Lincoln

It is always fabulous to hear from our lovely couples after the event, especially when they are as enthusiastic about our designs as Hailey and Keith were.
Thank you both for choosing RJ's Florist for your wedding flowers.

Hailey and Keith's wedding part 3.
The wedding reception was held at The Old Palace, a gorgeous venue with excellent and helpful staff.
The couple decided to keep the table centres low, so when guests entered the room nothing was blocking the surprising view over Lincoln.
The fish bowls used were 12" and were created with flowers that matched the rest of the wedding. Eustoma, roses, freesia,Veronica and lavender. A single candle was also included.
As the couple had chosen a round top table a similar but larger bowl was created for their table.

Harmston Church

Hailey and Keith were married at All Saints church Harmston. A lovely church with many opportunities to have flower displays.
This is one of the six displays inside the church. A mixture of flowers to tie in with the bridal flowers, eustoma, roses, lavender, veronica and hydrangea. All the arrangements also included candles.
These two displays were an alternative to pedestals and worked really well in the space provided.

Hailey wanted each pew end to be decorated, so with this in mind we alternated with flowers and organza bows. The flowers were again a mixture of the bridal bouquets with eucalyptus and lavender adding a lovely aroma for the guests and wedding party.

The aisle in its full glory.
This archway was just crying out to be decorated. We were asked not to overfill with flowers but to design something pretty. This is a mainly foliage garland with large headed avalanche roses. The two bay-trees either side seem to extend the archway further.

This is the view you have as you approach and enter the church yard. Stunning.

A bank holiday wedding

Having got waylaid over the last few months, I hope to now finish posting 2011 weddings.

This is Hailey and Keith's wedding from August bank holiday weekend. They were a fantastic couple who had great ideas about their flowers but who ultimately left it to me to fulfil their wishes.
The bridal bouquet was of a hand-tied design with lots of lovely summer flowers which included freesia, eustoma, veronica, roses, agapanthus, spray roses and lavender. These together with eucalyptus made for a very scented bouquet.

As the bridesmaids wore teal dresses it was decided to have an array of colours toning in from pinks to purples with added white.
The three bridesmaids all carried a similar bouquet to the bride but smaller in size.
The groom wore a white rose with freesia and agapanthus and eucalyptus leaves which unfortunately we didn't have time to photograph.
This is one of two buttonholes that the best man and father of the bride wore. A single rose with agapanthus florets.
The mum's each wore a corsage of a white rose and freesias with eucalyptus, tree fern and lavender foliage.
Other favoured guests were presented with a single white rose buttonhole.
