Beautiful all white marquee wedding
Marquee weddings are a always a double edged sword when it comes to wedding flowers. On the huge plus side, the setting is so light that worries about colours clashing with the background are simply irrelevant. But this does however mean that the opposite becomes an important factor to consider – how do you have the flowers have enough standout, especially if you choose ivory-white as your wedding flowers colour scheme?
Caroline and David’s marquee wedding reception at Caroline’s parents home, is a great example of how to make an ivory colour scheme work well against the plain ivory backdrop of a wedding marquee., pushing the ivory theme as far as possible without loosing stand-out and impact. For some of the tables, we created tall vase centrepieces, with a lovely mix of ivory flowers including roses, hydrangeas, cherry blossom, scented stocks. The stunning silver flute vases contrasted beautifully with the white surround, and the silvery green and dark green foliage used in the displays, and draping amaranthus created lovely contrast too! To suit Caroline’s taste for a relaxed and candle-lit wedding with silver, white and green, the remaining tables were dressed with two more different designs. 4 corner tables were styled with our dramatic faux blossom flower trees, with lots of hanging candle-lit votives. The remaining tables were styled simply with a gorgeous eclectic selection of our silver mercury glass candleholders amongst a lavish bed of moss. And finally, each guest name place marker was a camellia leaf inscribed with silver pen.
The day started off with everyone getting ready at Caroline’s parents home, followed by the ceremony at St Lawrence Church in Chobham. Caroline carried a beautiful textural bouquet with roses, freesias, astilbe, scented stocks and lisianthus, and her bridesmaids carried contrasting bouquets with green hydrangeas, roses, lisianthus and scented stocks. The beautiful St Lawrence church was dressed with lovely pew end displays with ivory flowers and draping amaranthus.
