Joanne and Allan booked their wedding at the stunning Rookery Hall and it was an absolute pleasure to be asked to dress their wedding. Joanne had originally found out about us from the bridal guide "Wedding Spot" and loved our reviews! It's so lovely when a bride comes to you based on the recommendations of other couples.
Joanne was very decisive from the start, I had sent her photographs of previous weddings we'd done at the venue and they decided they really loved the tall vase centrepieces. Jo and Allan had a clear idea of how they wanted the ceremony to look with aisle runner, petals, pedestals and the tall vases.
Initially Jo and Allan didn't have a colour scheme decided but as bridesmaid dresses/suits etc were sorted it became clear that silver and grey/blue were the featuring colours.
After a catch up consultation it was decided that winter florals such a thistles, silver dyed oak leaves and silver brunia berries would make up part of the centrepieces, along with ivory roses, astrantia million stars, ornithogalum thrysoides and gypsophila. However Allan was very keen for the centrepieces not to look cold, especially as they had opted for silver bows on the chairs. At this point we agreed to add pale lilac morning dew roses to give additional colour.
At 2 weeks from the wedding Joanne had gone for a make up trial and it was decided that her eye makeup would be a light peach colour to compliment the pale peach lace on her brooch bouquet. Jo and I decided to add some peach to the centrepieces. This was perfect! I opted for a pale peach/salmon coloured rose called "Sleeping Beauty". These added that pop of colour and the warmth to the centrepieces that Allan had initially hoped for.
A long and low floral arrangement was also designed to compliment the centrepieces and featured on the registrars table before moving to the centre of the top table. Teamed with crisp white swags for both tables it finished the look off perfectly!
Jo and Allan's was the perfect Autumn/Winter wedding. It was elegant and classy. They were happy to follow my guidance on what was in season and what would suit their colours and theme.
As Jo had originally found me on Wedding Spot she very kindly went back and left a review for new brides...
"Natasha was amazing. She took our existing colours and created gorgeous centrepieces with beautiful flowers that lasted long after the wedding. I would highly recommend Simply Weddings and Events for all your venue dressing needs!"
