On the walls we hung malus apple wreaths with velvet ribbon – I just adored all the textures!!
Again in the room we had our drinks reception we wanted it to be relaxed and autumnal!! The room had no furniture so we brought in a huge wooden side board unit and filled it with apothecary jars filled with autumn goodies like leaves, physalis, cinnamon sticks and malus apples.
We added lots of candles and vases full of malus apple branches, with the addition of a few personal touches like photos of our parents on their wedding day, some Old Letterpress Printer Blocks and framed poems written by grandmother it was such a great focus in the room.
I made huge wreaths of autumn leaves, physalis and birch that we hung around the room too – I am in no way a romantic but I read somewhere in one of many wedding magazines(!) that the wreath is a symbol of eternity and it just stuck with me so I decided to make as many as I could!!
As I am a wedding florist it was really important to me to do something different that I hadn’t seen before for the reception tables – the best way was to seat our guests on a long table – creating “tablescapes” for long tables is probably one of the most enjoyable things for me.… View the full post.
Hello! I’m back! And how better to get back into Weddings (Thank you Adam for holding the fort!) than with my absolute favourite kind – a Florists Wedding. When I saw Gemma from Planet Flowers wedding on the BlueSky blog I literally almost died it was so so beautiful. Abundant, lush, bursting with colour and texture doesn’t even come close to describing it. I didn’t for a heart beat think Gemma would choose to share it with us so when she did I was ecstatic!
It’s been a joy to put together and although the florals are on a grand scale, there are a variety of styles involved. Autumn brides you’re in for a super inspiring treat and I think there might be a few more of you wishing you were having an Autumn wedding after you see this. Even better, Part 2 is coming right up this afternoon! DON’T MISS IT!!
Gem & Chris were married on Saturday 30th October 2010 at Hopetoun House, South Queensferry and all the stunning photography is courtesy of the lovely Niels and Alie at BlueSky Photography
A Reluctant Dress Shopper!
The wedding dress was the one thing that I really was not looking forward to organising! I am very much a fleece and jeans type of girl so the thought of going to try on a big puffy dresses was a slight nightmare for me!!
We went to so many different shops and tried on so many dresses they all became a bit of a blur but I quickly realized what I did and didn’t like and what would suit me better.… View the full post.
As you can imagine we receive a lot of real wedding submissions here at RMW HQ and my absolute favourite supplier submitted kind are when the sender ( particularly the photographer…..) seem genuinely genuinely thrilled about the Big Day they want featured and supply us with the reasons behind why they think Rock My Wedding is the perfect place to be showcased.
David and Teri from Murakami Photography are the perfect example and I was immediately taken with their infectious excitement and how much they were completely and utterly in love with the Autumn soiree of Laura and Dave that they captured beautifully in October last year.
Not only does the affair have a whole heap of pretty with a delicious citrus colour palette and gorgeous show stopping fashion but every little piece of decor and I mean EVERY last piece was designed, put together and made by the Bride and Groom and their family.
This is Do it Your Way and Do It YOURSELF Your Way to the max lovelies.
The Right Investment
I spent hours and hours researching which blooms: I even took a floristry course to help determine my decision!
For the bouquets, I decided that I wanted specific David Austin roses in gorgeous apricot and cream (‘Juliet‘ and ‘Patience‘). With those, I wanted a small amount of yellow roses to pick up the overall theme and camomile or September flower for the yellow centres. My vision for the bouquets were rustic country garden. My florist, Sarah at Flowers at 166 in Charminster must have been demented with me as I kept adding or changing things until I had it exactly right, but she did a great job.… View the full post.
