CEREMONY & RECEPTION FLOWERS
Dressing your venue is one of the best parts of wedding and event floral design. Reception flowers can really make a statement, set the theme or evoke the senses with beautiful scented table arrangements.
It is advised when planning your reception decor that you keep your arrangements either high enough to be over your guests heads or low enough they can see over them.
(But then again it is your day so whatever you want is possible within the realms of floral design.)
As there really is an endless amount of designs that can be used for dressing your wedding or event you should always be able to find something within your budget.
Alicia and Scott dressed their tables with jars of loose seasonal summer flowers in blush, ivory and pink with lots of foliage.
These were placed on log slices to keep with the rustic theme.
Lucy and Zak wanted to bring the outdoors inn and bring a woodland feel to the reception. Tall vases were filled with twisted willow and larkspur and the tables were dressed with moss, ivy and rose petals.
Tall martini vases filled with summer blooms in white and ivory created a stunning backdrop for this afternoon tea celebration. Jam jars full of gypsophiola decorated the lounge area and also the church pews. Traditional tall pedestools were used in both the church and reception.
Bright summer blooms in pinks and purples added a whole lot of character to this country house wedding. Floating flowers and candles in martini vases were used on tables and ombre rose petals decorated the aisle and tables.
Islington Town Hall
Caroline came to me and asked if I could use vintage swan vases for the tables... of course!!! they were filled with pretty pastel summer flowers in a variety of textures. Smaller arrangements in vintage china dressed the drinks reception and the three tier cake.
Palm leaves, orchids and ostrich feathers made for a truly Gatsby styled centerpiece at Laura and Steve's 20's themed venue. The bridal bouquets were placed in vases along the top table to decorate it in keeping with the style but saving £'s on a seperate arrangement.
Large Arrangements of opulent flowers were peppered around the stunning Notley Abbey venue. Hanging balls of flowers and martini vases over flowing with large hydrangeas and roses dressed the communal spaces and the dining room had a woodland inspired vibe with tealights and flowers hanging in glass votives from tall tree branches.
