Purple Garden Wedding, Tracey & Dave

31st July was the Wedding of Tracey and Dave at Rowhill Grange. Summer Flowers, dusky lilac, deep purple and a garden vibe is a taster for the theme that unfolded.

I first met this lovley couple last Autumn and at first, Tracey wanted modern and funk flowers, however as her love affair with flowers began it became aparent that it was actually the blousey and garden like flowers that she prefered. This style fitted in much better with her style of dress and the colours that the Groomsmen and Bridesmaid wore.

This is Tracey's bouquet. It was a lovely and soft, textured hand tied dome of to shades of roses, freesia and lisisanthus. The ivory roses had a diamonte stud to give that little bit of sparkle!

The flower girl wore a dusky lilac colour dress, and she held a smaller version of the Brideal bouquet, only I reversed the colour of the fressia to make it stand out slighty.

It was a really hot day and dressing the Gazebo was lovely as the grounds were really peacful as the excitement of the day was about to begin. I arranged a full and romantic centrepiece to the ceremomy table, which was then later moved to the top table (Top Tip for Brides)

I swagged ruscus and ivy over the arch of the gazebo and studded it with rose heads- so lovley and perfect for the setting.

To frame the gazebo, I arranged hydrangea plants in urns and stands either side to give a entrance with wow... all that was missing now was the Bride and Groom.

Count down... "der, der ,der ,dum!"

In the Clockhouse Suite, the centrepieces were all done and looking FAB. The mottled hydrangeas were a real show piece in these large domes. With scented stocks, lilies and roses, it was a real feast for the eyes and nose as you entered the room

The introduction of the deeper purple tone really gave another level to the flowers, I used Purple Lisisanthus.

The base of the vase had a crystal effect and even glowed for the evening! Surrounding the mirror base was mirrored votives holding "brocoli" florettes I like to call them of the hydrangeas. The stationary was lovely and matched to perfection.

On the top table, the chair sashes had side bows which looks really good. I even added a rose for the Bride and Groom.

For the cake I arranged dianty posies which sat on each tier with a locking heart to finish it off.

Congratulations Tracey and Dave, you were a pleasure to work with and I am very pleased I was part of your day. x
