I met the lovely Lauren and Chris in September 2016 for a chat over coffee at their wedding venue, Hunton Park Hotel. They married on 18th August 2017
Lauren had mentioned that flowers were a really integral part of the day and that it was important to create a wow factor with all of the blooms used at their wedding. There was to be lots of textural foliages used throughout all of the arrangements coupled with pastel blooms to compliment their bridesmaids dresses which were a dusky pink/nude tone.
The palette was based around cream, dusky pink, nude, peach, blush with just a hint of lilac throughout-Totally yummy!
Lauren loved the idea of a trailing bouquet, with lots of ivy draping, made into an informal style.
We used a gorgeous mix of Quicksand, Sweet Avalanche, Amnesia and Pearl Avalanche Roses with Hydrangea, Scabious, Lisianthus, Astilbe, Dahlia, Amaranthus and scented mint. It was accented with heaps of foliages including Asparagus fern, berried ivy, seeded eucalyptus and Lauren looked absolutely breathtaking holding her bouquet!
Such a beautiful bride!
And of course we can’t forget Chris who looked super dashing on the day! Chris wore a buttoniere with a dainty selection of flowers that were included within Lauren’s bouquet.
The bridesmaids held a hand tied selection of complimentary flowers and the groomsmen wore petite buttonieres to compliment them.
The ceremony was held at the very pretty Parish of Leavesden Church in Watford with the service being held by Father Robert
We used large scale arrangements either side of the alter to dress the church which looked absolutely stunning!
Back at the venue we dressed the fireplaces with delicate cut crystal vases, lanterns, tea lights and rose petals to create a warm welcome to all of their guests.
The tables were adorned with a beautiful mix of tall luxurious centrepieces set into glass cylinder vases with trailing ivy and amaranthus and low level arrangements in dainty vases to add depth and interest. It looked divine!
Throughout the table designs we used a mix of different height votives to create a staggered lighting effect.
To dress the top table we placed glass bowls intermittently throughout for the bridal and bridesmaids bouquets to be placed within after the service and entwined ivy and candlelight throughout.
The couple chose a naked cake, which was decorated with flowers to compliment the theme of their day by their cake maker Ciara Linskey at Dream Big Dream Cakes.
Their guests danced the night away and then were treated a sparkler send off for Lauren and Chris later on in the evening. So sweet!!!
