Louise had chosen pink and ivory as her colour theme and wanted lilies as her main flower. Looking through my portfolio she came across this style of bouquet and loved it. Keeping it simple with just stargazer lilies, ivory roses with ivy and bear grass.
Louise then asked if it would be possible to add in a horseshoe? She had had two shoes off her horse chromed and wanted to add them in somewhere in her flowers. I added one in her bouquet by attaching it to satin ribbon and hanging it amongst the trail of the bouquet.
The maid of honor was her sister, which I attached the second horseshoe to her bouquet.
This was an overarm design of white calla lilies laid on an aspidistra leaf and bear grass.
This was slightly more difficult to add to as the stems were quite thin but with ribbon and pins I achieved what I was asked to do.
The other 4 bridesmaids each carried a similar overarm design of calla lilies.
The 2 flower girls each carried a small wicker basket with pink ribbon covered handle and bows filled with pink and ivory rose petals.
The gentlemen of the wedding party each wore a single ivory rose with gyp and ivy, with a small version for the page boy.
The ladies each wore a pink and ivory rose corsage with a sprig of gyp and ivy foliage.
The ceremony and reception were held at Charlotte House Hotel where the service was held in the orangery.
I provided the ceremony table display. A mix of pink stargazer lilies, roses, carnations and gerberas with a few ivory roses and srigs of gyp.
Long and low design which was moved to the top table for the wedding breakfast.
The 6 guest tables were each named after the variety of flower used. Louise left it to me but requested pink flowers and only 5 or 6 stems of each flower. The designs were made so the flowers could be kept/given away and the hired vases returned to me.
