The Spectacularly Colourful Wedding Day of Laura & Chris at St John The Evangelist & The Great Hall at Mains
This was such a joyous wedding to work on, we've had the most fabulous meetings with the lovely Laura & Chris, we got together with them back in February to go through their magnificent Mood Board, a colourful explosion of floral loveliness, plans were made for us to meet up in May for them to see a set of sample designs created exclusively for them.
Laura's sample bright and colourful bouquet was tweaked and we decided to leave out the cerise pink shade for the real bridal bouquet, the ribbon trails too were refined too match the Bridesmaid's dress colours exactly
The Bride Groom's sample Boutonniere of Love in The Mist, Eryngium, Daisies and Viburnum
Sample table design set on grass, a collection of magical vessels all filled with fresh flowers
Sample tall table design; Our Enchanted Tree dressed with ribbon garlands, fresh flowers and candlelit orbs
At long last the big day arrived and I was the lucky florist to be making the presentation of the Bridal Bouquets to the lovely Laura, little Ava and the Bridesmaids
