El and Dan's Wedding

El and Dan's wedding was held at Tonbridge Castle with their reception at The High Rocks in Tunbridge Wells. As an early summer wedding, El and Dan wanted soft and country style flower arrangements to compliment their wedding. The colour scheme was a collection of blues, ivories and creams with fresh greens and foliages.

For El's bouquet we created a soft summery hand tied bouquet of cream Avalanche Roses, scented ivory Sweet Peas, pale blue Nigella, scented ivory Freesia, Thlapsi and ivory Astrantia with delicate Panicum grass and Eucalyptus foliage. The bouquet was finished with a cream satin ribbon handle and pearl detailing.

The bridesmaids' bouquets were smaller versions of the bridal bouquet but they had slightly more blue in them with the addition of Scabious.

The ceremony was held upstairs in the castle, a beautiful stone room that has soft lighting to compliment it (but not easy to photograph in!)

We flanked the registrar's table with two freestanding candelabras that featured country style arrangements both at the top and the base. The arrangements included scented ivory Stocks, cream Avalanche Roses, blue Agapanthus, ivory Astantia, pale blue Nigella, Thlapsi, Panicum grass and trailing ivy.

We also moved the candelabras from the ceremony to the reception so that they could be enjoyed twice!
