Lisa and Mike's Wedding

The first true sunny day of the year brought with it the wedding of Lisa and Mike! Lisa and her Mum came to visit us last year to plan her wedding flowers having seen her dream wedding bouquet on our website.

Lisa and Mike's theme was very classical, traditional and centered around a colour scheme of cream and green. They chose to wed at the beautifully sunny Nettlestead Place, just around the corner from our workshop! Their reception was held at The Spa Hotel in Tunbridge Wells which was just as stunning in the sunshine.

Lisa wanted a very classy and chic wedding bouquet and fell in love with our classic Avalanche Rose, Freesia and Lisianthus hand tied bouquet.

Lisa wanted to incorporate seasonal Tulips into her bridesmaids' bouquets, and the hand tied bouquets were created with ivory Tulips and cream Freesia. Simply gorgeous!

For Mike we created a cream Rose and Freesia buttonhole and for his groomsmen we made single cream Rose buttonholes, and the ladies wore corsages of scented Freesia.

 At Nettlestead Place, Lisa wanted simple decoration as the venue is so stunning. We placed two Rose decorated Bay trees behind the Registrar's table so that they would feature in the photographs of the couple signing the register.

After the ceremony we moved the Bay trees to stand at the top table in The Royal Suite at The Spa Hotel. We also decorated the top table with small vintage silver votives filled with massed posies of Roses, Tulips and Freesia. Rose petals were then scattered along the length of the table in between trails of ivy and tealight votives (notice the sunshine streaming in through the windows!)

Lisa and Mike had chosen small candelabras for the guest tables dressed with ivy. We added more Rose petals scattered over the table to tie in with the top table. We then added an arrangement of Roses and Freesia on the top tier of the wedding cake (which look divine!)

Whilst we transferred the Bay Trees from Nettlestead Place, we got a sneaky peak at the happy couple and they looked like they were having a wonderful time and we wish them many congratulations!
