Inspirations - Spring colour scheme, flowers and favours
Our previous blog was about Victoria and Ben's wedding in Hertfordshire. The details and colours that made up their wedding were so beautiful that we thought they deserved to be showcased in a separate piece. They chose to use colours of silver and white with a dash of aubergine. This was worked beautifully throughout: in the flowers, decorations and accessories, with the aubergine colour appearing in subtle ways. The top table had aubergine chiffon around their chairs whilst the rest of the chairs in the marquee had silver chiffon. Little bridesmaids complimented their ivory dresses with the same aubergine chiffon tied as a waistband. Even the cake had a slight colouring of aubergine on the fondant petals.
Andrew Fleming was the florist and he produced beautiful bouquets and amazing table centre pieces, as well as decorating the church with his wonderful displays. Again aubergine effectively featured throughout. Tall, silver candelabras were stunning when lit, giving the marquee such a warm glow.
Other lovely touches were the white grand piano, being played throughout the meal; the white dancefloor with sparkly lights; and decorative trees which surrounded the dancefloor with blue fairy lights.
Finally, we have to comment on the favours, as they were so very clever. Each guest had been bought a lottery ticket! Let's hope someone went home richer that night.
