Striking purple and lime at Laura and Andy's zesty and glamourous wedding

Meeting with Laura for the first time at her Mums house was lovely. We had a hot cup of tea and I met the family hound, very cute! Laura had a picture of her stunning diamond white dress and one of her bridesmaids dresses which was a beautiful rich deep purple. Laura, her Mum and I talked through her venue and the sort of look she wanted to achieve, and settled on a striking colour scheme of purple, ivory and zesty lime green which were perfect for the scorching hot day in July this year.

The elegant Tudor room where Laura and Andy became Mr and Mrs Butler was decorated with a simple arrangement of giant allium, lime green chrysanthemum, gladioli, Bells of Ireland and contemporary foliage.
The top table was decorated with small vases of mixed flowers and a hanging ribbon backdrop of kermit chrysanthemum, singapore and stunning vanda orchids.
A trio of vases containing mixed flowers with tea lights for natural candlelight.

Each table centrepiece used the same glassware layout set with striking cube candles. The flowers were used differently across each table with flowers including allium, trachelium, vanda orchids, lisianthus, chrysanthemum and roses.
This stunning contemporary arrangement welcomed the guests to the evening reception. Giant alliums take centre stage on this one!

Gorgeous flowers done on a grand scale.
The pretty cake decorated with a little grouping of purple flowers.
I didn't take pics of Laura's amazing bouquet (silly me!) so hopefully she'll send them across when the snaps come through. Can't wait to see them xx
