Liz and Stan's Wedding

Our second wedding of the weekend was that of Liz and Stan, held at The Spa Hotel in Tunbridge Wells on Sunday 29th May. They chose the beautiful Orangery for their ceremony room and then onto the Chandelier Restaurant for the reception. Their wedding was themed around Lavender, both the colour and the flower. Liz specifically chose herbs and lots of different foliages to be included.

For the main bridal party flowers, the lavender theme was to feature accompanied by cream flowers. For the table arrangements she decided to open the colour scheme up as the chair sashes in the reception were to be cornflower blue and so we mixed the colours up a little too.

Liz's bouquet was a wired shower bouquet consisting of cream Avalanche Roses, lilac Freesia, Lisianthus (very fitting!) and of course Lavender.

For the three flower girls, small hand tied bouquets of Roses, Lisianthus, Freesia and Lavender were made and finished with cream ribbon and Lavender pearl pins.

Stan had a double Rose buttonhole again with herbs and Lavender and the Groomsmen also wore a Rose buttonhole with Lavender.

For the Mother of the Bride, to match with her outfit, a pink Heaven Rose with lilac Freesia corsage was created with a magnet to attach to protect her outfit. When we went to collect the items that had been hired the next day, she was still wearing it!

For the master of ceremonies, we made a scarlet red Rose buttonhole with herbs and foliage.

In the ceremony room we made a long and low arrangement for the Registrar's table that was then moved to the top table in the reception.

We also created two urn vase arrangements that sat either end of the Registrar's table that included Delphiniums, stocks, phlox and Lisianthus.

We also made confetti cones with fresh Rose petals to be thrown after the ceremony.

The tables in the reception room had small summer flower arrangements. The vases were vintage wine glasses provided by the Mother of the Bride and were given away at the end of the evening as favours for the guests.

For the cake table we also created a vase arrangement for the table. The cake was amazing! A three tier square cake with sugar decorations. Very tasty looking!

Best wishes to Liz and Stan on their future together!
