Last year I gave away a free wedding package as a promotion and also as a away for me to add some innovate designs to my portfolio. The catch was that the couple would have to give me complete control of the flowers and designs. I would take into consideration the couples wedding colors and theme. After many application I choose Lidia and David. I had met Lidia prior at a bridal show and loved her wedding theme and just knew I wanted to create something different for her. She also purchased centerpieces and extra decor and bouquets (her party was bigger than the package). The end result was beautiful and captured them perfect as a couple . They both loved to garden and the outdoors and wanted to keep the flowers and designs What she told me was the theme was butterflies and the wedding colors were orange and purple and the rest was left up to me.
Below is the creations I made for their October wedding at Wickham Park.
Lidias bouquet consisted of Ivory roses, cinnamon cymbidium orchids, Orange mokara orchids, purple monte casino and bupleurum. The bouquet was swirled with lily grass blades and I then attached the orchids and butterflies to the blades of grass to give it the illusion they where fluttering around the bouquet. Because Lidia loves to garden I also included hens and chicks in to her bouquet so that she could remove them from her bouquet and plant them in her new yard.
Davids Boutonniere consisted of cinnamon cymbidium orchids
as well as hens and chicks
Groomsmen's boutonniere of orange mokara orchids
The bridesmaids bouquets consisted of green hydrangea, orange mokara orchids, purple stock, orange freesia, hanging amaranthus, and scabiosa pods.
Orange butterflies accented both the bouquet and the stem wrap
I also hung paper lanterns in the tent at Wickham park
And decorated the arch at Wickham park with matching florals and butterflies
