Shocking Pink with Sparkles

On Saturday 14th August was Lisa's wedding at Brandshatch Place Hotel. After all the rain we had- the morning was looking like the sun was going to shine. I packed up the van and headed

The theme of this wedding was pink......shocking pink! Lisa wanted a modern look with lots of sparkle to. Her Favourite flower was gerberas and therfore the hot pink gerbera theme came together quickly!
Firstly I dressed the staircase with foilage and fabric, a really pretty entrance and great for the photos to.

Lisa's bouquet was a stunning hand tied of white calla lilies with hot pink gerberas. It was really modern and pretty, and the bold colours were amazing. To bring out the "bling" I added swaroski crystals to the centre of the flowers along with studded ones on the ends of the wispy grass. The weightof these on the grass meant that they bounced beautifully as she walked along.

The boys had mini gerbera's to match and the Groom had the crystals on his too!

The Bridesmaids wore floor length dresses in the hot pink with bodices studded with crystals. They held hand tied bouquets of germinis and white roses with looped bear grass. They were cute and compact but full of colour and impact. On mass the colour looked amazing

The Ceremony was held in the Georgean room, really intimate and romantic. I had arranged two pedastals which filled the room with colour and scent. The Gladi nearly touched the ceiling and so was an amazing backdrop to the ceremony. I used seasoanl flowers but kept the bold and modern look throughtout. The ceremony table was also dressed, along with the chairs with pink sashes!

The Wedding reception was in the ballroom. Large goldfish bowls of compact tied domes of gerberas and white roses looked great, I studded more crytsals to the grass loops which really sparkled and reflected in all the mirrors.

The whole display was sat on mirror bases and surrounded by crystals and candle light. Lisa had put pink runners over the linen to add more colour.

The modern cake was lovley. I simply dressed it with flowers from the theme. Oh and the sun did shine for the ceremony! Congratulations Lisa.

Bowls full of roses and oh so pretty posies

7th August was the wedding of Gemma and Keiran at St George's in Chislehurst followed by a reception at Coombe Bank, Westerham.

The colour scheme was a gorgeous blush pink and dusky pink. The flowers were to be soft and blousy and be full of romance! My kind a wedding...

Gemma held a hand tied dome of summer blooms- so soft and blousy with peonies, roses and lizzy. The smell was as good as the look to. The soft varigated foilages gave a frilly look to the bouquet which almost looked like lace.

The girls wore two tone dresses and the dusky rose matched just perfectly. The hint of lme green lifted the colour a gave a lovley summer twist. When the girls sore their flowers they were overwhlemed which is so lovely.

After the Ceremony the wedding breakfast was held at Coombe bank. The room is a blank canvas with soft cream walls and alcoves which were draped with white fabric, it looked pretty before the flowers went in.

Bowls full of full bloom roses with soft green foliages filled the room with colour and romance- a real transformation of the room! The bowls were surrounded by rose petals which tied in lovley with the favours of scented rose petal sweeties!

The large sash windows which looked out onto the grounds were dresses with white lanterns and even more rose petals.

Finally I dressed the three tiered cake with compact rose heads and a top tier posy. Romance was definatly in the air. Congratulations to the new Mr and Mrs Smith!
