Sit with me and smell the roses -Photography: www.lisapayneweddings.co.uk

IMG_5226A look back to our beautiful stand at The Milton Keynes wedding show in September.

Inspiration was taken from garden scenes of rambling rose archways found around the British aisles.

We wanted to create a dramatic display which charged the senses, with scent and shape for the couples attending the show.

An abundance of roses pulled the design together in tones of pink, blush and cream. The true stars of the show though, were the foraged foliages-Silver birch, beech and berried ivy.

Look at the Fiori glassware, Leontine charger plates and antique Versailles cutlery by Duchess and Butler nestled into the floral table top-just breathtaking!

Not forgetting the stunning urbane napkins by Just for Linen which accented the colour palette perfectly.

The arch was created with over 400 hundred roses-Pink Mondial, White Mondial and Pink O’Hara and Bombastic spray rose-the scent was immense and although I’m a little immune to smelly blooms even I could smell the roses on the approach to the stand.

That Pink O’Hara rose working its magic…

I love to create show-stopping displays, with a natural feel and flow-bringing the outside in for a soft and romantic feel.

Dress your chairs with florals to complete the look!

Thank you so much to all of the couples who came to see me-I had a wonderful time meeting you all!

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.

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!

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!
