Three special weddings - Part III

Hello lovelies,

Here is the last in the little series of three that my wonderful friends Cara and Nye of Lillian and Leonard Photography helped me out with.* I brought flowers and they brought cameras, and we all worked our respective magic for the lovely couple Lynne and Stuart who were getting married. Lynne and Stuart chose House for an Art Lover in Glasgow for their wedding, which is a gorgeous venue. It was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and has all the beautiful details, quirky lights and painted wood you would imagine.

Lynne and Stuart wanted simple, elegant flowers with lots of nice greenery, so we kept the coulours minimal - just green and white. I used brassicas with green hypericum berries, white lisianthus and ivy, dracena, and two varieties of eucalyptus. Each arrangement sat in a sweet little glass cake dish in the centre of each table. I also made sure that each arrangement was a little bit different from the next to give a more natural look. I like to think that each one was unique, instead of all being identical.

You can see more images of their beautiful wedding on Lillian and Leonard's blog soon. I have some more lovely pictures to share with you next week, there will be a blue and white countryside wedding full of peonies and delphniums, an intimate, modern wedding with a red, white and mango theme and a fabulous shimmering bouquet for a shimmering bride. Also coming soon - my new website!**

* Actually they have taken four lots of pictures of my work now, as they kindly took some pictures at another wedding in House for an Art Lover last week.

** I'm pretty excited about replacing the current website, however the new one is a work in progress, and will change as I improve it until its just right.

Three special weddings - Part II

So, its a little later than I'd planned for, but I finally got around to writing the second post in this series of three. This wedding was so much fun to do, Raquel and Ross had loads of good ideas about what they wanted, and came up with things I didn't expect, like a monogram letter R, as it represents both their initials. They had also spent some time collecting mismatched antique tea pots and milk jugs, each of which held a tiny posy of flowers, and they had the sweetest little Victorian glass ink wells, all slightly different from each other.

I was really excited about the flowers for this wedding as Raquel wanted to include succulents in her bouquet, which I've been wanting to do for an age! She also wanted big soft fluffy peonies, gerbera daisies and yellow billy buttons (craspedia), and we used "lemonade" and "lydia" spray roses - the latter sharing the name of Raquel's mum.

Raquel and Ross were married at Pollok House and had their reception at Brodies in the centre of Glasgow, as both venues had the low key and relaxed, yet romantic and offbeat vibe they wanted for their wedding. Photographs all by the lovely, talented and generally spiffing Lillian and Leonard!
