Kim’s mum has been a long standing customer and so when her daughter wanted wedding flowers they approached me to see if I could help. Kim chose this design out of my portfolio, it matched her colour theme and she loved the flower mix. Memory Lane roses, purple eustoma, lilac freesia and ivory roses and gyp all presented with a silver wire collar and the stems wrapped in purple satin ribbon.

For the venue, The Pride Of Lincoln, I provided the top table display, sorry no photo, and this lovely archway for the cake table. This was decorated with organza and had a ruscus garland with lilac and ivory roses and bunches of gyp tied around the front arch.

Laura’s wedding ceremony was held at St Giles Church (The Church that moved) Lincoln.

The pews were dressed with purple/aubergine organza bows with 2 ivory gerberas in the centre, one with an added diamante broach. These were positioned on opposite pews but on alternative rows.

The wedding breakfast was held at Hemswell Court where the tables were dressed with a mixture of high and low designs.

The colours from the bouquets were carried through along with the flowers. The tall designs were martini vases which had a lilac delphinium, red calla lily, purple/lilac roses, carnations and chrysants and white hydrangeas with mixed foliage. These were made in a container which sits in the vase (which I hire) so the display may be given away to guests after the event. The ‘bowl’ part of the vase was filled with purple sisal. The low designs were in glass cubes and included white and purple dendrobium orchids, lilac roses and alstroemeria, and stallion chrysants with mixed foliage.

Laura and her mum came to me from a recommendation from a previous bride.

The colour was aubergine which in flowers was hard to match up so we brought in a range of lilacs and purples to compliment instead.

Laura’s bridal bouquet was a fabulous mix of flowers in a loose cascading design and included calla lily, memory lane roses, purple dendrobium orchids, white cymbidium orchids, white hydrangea and a mix of foliage.
