A nice day for a white wedding (part 2)

The church and the bridal flowers.

Traditional bay trees in zinc planters with rope handles were used at the entrance to St. Katherines Church, Blackrod, Bolton. Inside we used tall zinc planters, planted with tall Cyperus papyus grasses, white cyclamen, long varigated ivy and white heather instead of the usual pedestal arrangements. The flower lady at church looked very perplexed when I arrived with them. Image

Simple jam jars with pretty white flowers were used as pew ends and to adorn the register table. There was no table cloth on the table and when I asked if there was a table cloth, the reply I got was “it’s nothing to do with me”. Luckily the shop is only 5 minutes away, so I dashed back and pick one up.

The maid of honour had a corsage/boutonniere and there were no more bridesmaids. The brides bouquet was a collection of white flowers tied naturally and bound with hessian. I used Hydrangea, Scabious (which was beautiful), Nigella seed heads, dahlias, sweet peas, veronica and a touch of gyp. Image

She looked beautiful and very happy when she emerged from church.

A nice day for a white wedding

The weather report was 70% rain for last Saturday and we all had our fingers crossed that it wouldn’t chuck it down. Teri (the bride) had everything so well organized and the reception was a marquee in her mum’s garden. You can’t order the weather!!

Theme was all white with hessian touches, oooo we were very much looking forward to designing the flowers.

I suggested different white flowers for each table in the marquee

It worked really well giving each table its own identity and showing off the beauty of each flower. The marquee looked fabulous.

AND it didn’t rain…..
