A beautiful watercolour image was the starting point for our flower displays, bouquets, button holes and table displays. The graceful imagery provided cues for the flowers and foliage we would use. When a wedding is punctuated with these beautiful motifs it makes it all the more a personal and memorable wedding. The setting couldn't be anymore complementary with pale stone walls and characterful beams full of charm.
The bouquets were kept classic with a restrained colour palette, perfectly muted and feminine. A hint of green foliage in the bouquets tied in with the reception area colours. Eucalyptus, ruscus and peach coloured flowers were placed seamlessly along the lengths of the dinner tables and top table. There's something classic about this look and it didn't compete with the stunning menus and table number displays, all with the water colour imagery. The welcome display and chalk board just needed a simple finishing touch with eucalyptus and ruscus. Our biggest challenges were reaching the chandeliers to place ruscus around and adding floral arrangements to the Jasmine arch placed in the ceremony area outside. Undeterred by the heights and balancing on a ladder on uneven ground the floral embellishments outside were successfully placed, adding a soft and elegant element to the jasmine arch.
Foliage and more foliage has been a lasting trend this year! This wedding showcased this trend perfectly. Eucalyptus also offers a wonderful scent that's uplifting, adding another dimension. The power of foliage is it has a calming feel and the odd splash of colour will be more restful and elegant looking for the big day.
Mapperton House is such an enchanting setting and is blessed with fairytale gardens and picturesque buildings. This dreamy setting has a plethora of locations for photography opportunities and has charming ceremony area outside. This alfresco ceremony area was chosen to be more formal with tight displays of flowers and the use of elegant detailed urns. The jasmine arch fitted particularly well for this outdoor wedding as it added structure to the area creating the starting point to the ceremony area. Symmetry creates more formality and this was obtained by adding pew end floral arrangements on either side of the aisle and adding structures opposing each other. Two cutomized flower laden arrangements in ornate urns flanked the historic ceremony buiding giving the aisle a delightfully romantic style.
