Back in August, I was delighted to take part in the wedding of Leonie and Sam Butt. I had known Leonie since we did our A levels together. She was always lovely and working with her on her wedding flowers was a sheer delight. I have never met a bride so open to suggestion, yet confident of what she liked and what she disliked. Here are some pics from the day:
The bride's bouquet was loaded with Avalanche and Akito roses, lisisanthus, Orion thistles, pittosporum, blue veronica, purple freesia and hard ruscus to finish.
The bridesmaids' bouquet consisted of white statis and purple lisianthus, finished with lavender ribbon and pearl pins.
After a mini disaster with the hydrangea wands, wilting leaves were exchanged for organza ribbon.
And I think (hope!) you'll agree that they turned out rather pretty.
Originally the plan was for the bridesmaids to carry purple statis dotted with white Akito roses, but at the bride's suggestion, the colour scheme was reversed. And what a good thing it was too, or else the purple would have receded into the bridesmaids' gowns and the flowers would have been lost.
And finally... The Bride, who would have looked dazzling even if she'd been carrying a bunch of dandelions.
Many congratulations Mr and Mrs Butt! x x x
