The brief from our lovely clients Chris and Victoria was elegant, autumnal, colourful and Scottish. We used the Groom’s tartan as a starting point and inspiration for the palette of colours which accented the whole day. In the church we created large flower displays at the top of the aisle, and the candelabra at the pew ends were wrapped in rich red satin and organza sashes finished with red roses. These colours hinted at what was still to come.
The entrance to the marquee was decorated with honeysuckle, ivy and lots of colour to create pillars of foliage and flowers. The highlight was definitely the blaze of autumnal colours inside the marquee. An abundance of apothecary jars in long groupings with masses of colourful flowers including honeysuckle, roses, hydrangea and firey orange montbretia sat on claret coloured runners. We also used crab apples and blackberries for further autumnal notes. Flower displays were added on and in glass apothecary jars with candles at different heights, delicate rose heads rested in glass apothecary jar lids. The gorgeous cake was topped with a beautiful display of roses, honeysuckle and heathers.
Using the colours of Chris’s tartan we installed a mix of bright coloured hanging lanterns of various sizes tying all the colours together, from the navy carpet to the sage greens of the foliage in our flower displays.
