Calla lilies and Gerberas

 These are the wedding flowers of David and Katie who were married back in July. David has been a customer of ours for some time and so it was a delight to finally meet Katie in person.
Their colour scheme was purple and white and Katie loves gerberas, with David liking the calla lilies and there we had the flowers sorted! The brides bouquet was white gerberas, picasso and schwartzwalder callas with salal foliage. The stems were bound in ribbon matching the bridesmaid dresses.
As a surprise for Katie, David asked us to make a replica of the bouquet in silk as Katie had already said she wanted to lay the fresh bouquet on a family grave and would be disappointed to leave it.
 The adult bridesmaid carried a similar bouquet but with just the white gerberas and picasso callas.
 The two flower girls both carried a crystal bead wand with a picasso calla and ribbon.
 The groom and best man each wore a picasso calla lily buttonhole with bear grass and foliage loops. These then had purple wire wrapped around the stems.
The rest of the grooms-men wore a similar calla lily buttonhole.
 The ladies each wore a calla lily buttonhole with lavender flowers and foliage loops.

We also provided a calla lily wrist corsage with lavender flowers and various foliage.

Thank you to David and Katie for choosing us to create the flowers for your wedding day.
