Summer ‘Blues’ create wedding drama, Rudding Park
31 Jan 2011
A bright summer’s day really added to the vibrancy of Sophie and Nick’s chosen wedding day theme. Sophie is a very creative artist and came to me with a beautiful scrapbook full of ideas for a rich blue, purple and lime green colour theme. This was very inspirational for me as I love working with strong colour combinations!
The beautiful photographs have all been kindly supplied by Anne-Marie King who can be contacted atwww.annemarieking.co.uk
Sophie had chosen a rich blue shade for her bridesmaid’s dresses and we created striking bouquet designs using striking hydrangea, agapanthus and alliums with bold loops of grasses.
We debated including a number of white or ivory flowers in the designs. I strongly felt that sticking to just to blues and purples would give the flowers more impact on the day and the final effect was brilliant. Sophie chose a white hydrangea and orchid bouquet to fit with her beautiful dress from wedding couture designer Anita Massarella. Anita can be contacted at www.anitamassarella.com
All flowers were arranged in a loose country style with a lovely mix of trailing amaranthus, soft asparagus fern and sculptural twisted willow twigs.
Sophie and Nick had a great day and I really enjoyed working with a couple brave enough to really ‘go for it’ when it came to the use of colour throughout their day. It can make such a difference…..
