Rebecca and Robert's Wedding

What a beautiful day for a wedding! The sun was shining and it was warm - for a change! Today was the wedding of Rebecca and Robert at The Spa Hotel in Tunbridge Wells.

I met with Rebecca and her mother at their house last year to discuss wedding flowers. Rebecca had seen Broadview Florist at a wedding fair and loved one of the small bouquets we had on display. She wanted a compact hand tied bouquet but to be petite in size. The colour of the bouquet was to match with the corsages on the bridesmaids dresses, a dusky vintage pink. In addition Rebecca wanted to incorporate the colour of the chair sashes, a periwinkle blue and also ivory to combine the two colours together. Another theme to the wedding was the inclusion of diamantes to add that extra bit of sparkle!

When I visited Holland back in October I looked out for a Rose that would match the Bridesmaids corsages and came across the "Hypnose" Rose. Hypnose is a beautiful dusky pink with the colour fading towards the outer petals.

The Bridal bouquet was a small compact Rose hand tied with diamante detailing in the centre of the Roses and along the handle. Rebecca wanted very little foliage in the bouquet so in order to finish the bouquet we individually wired pale grey blue Eucalyptus leaves as a neat collar.

The diamantes really sparkle in the light! When I delivered the flowers to Rebecca's room, she even had diamantes on her nails!

The Groom, family and the guest buttonholes all had diamantes in the centre of the Rose and had a diamante pin to attach the buttonhole. The Groom, Father of the Bride and Father of the Groom also had foliage in their buttonhole. The Rose chosen was Akito.

Rebecca and Robert were getting married in The Churchill Room and Broadview Florist created a long and low arrangement for the Registrar's table in blues, pinks and whites and included sprays of diamantes.

As a thank you for the help with the wedding preparations and planning, Rebecca and Robert wanted a thank you bouquet for some of the family members and friends.
