Opulent lilac & purple wedding at Botleys Mansion

A glam crystal candelabras wedding at Botleys

These Botleys Mansion wedding flowers mark our swift return to Botleys Mansion, for the wedding of Sheree & Stephen, our second wedding of the month at Botleys Mansion.  I really love arranging Botleys Mansion wedding flowers as it is such a beautiful neutral canvas for gorgeous flowers, and it will never ever feel samey.  Sheree and Stephen’s wedding was no exception, with one of my favourite colour scheme of ivory, lilac and deep purple blends, as well as pretty decor touches everywhere.

Sheree carried a classic bouquet of ivory Avalanche roses which beautifully complemented her lace dress.  The bridesmaids, dressed in lacey lilacey-rose dresses carried bouquets of Avalanche roses, Memory Lane, Dolcetto, Amnesia roses and lilac spray roses which really could not have matched their dresses any better… I luckily caught a snap of them while they were heading out to the church ceremony near Sheree’s home.

The sun was truly shinning, for one of the first few rare really spring-like days we have had during this year of strange weather.  So the displays we made for the grand stone stairs leading up to Botleys entrance, really came into their own and were much admired even by the chauffers.   Carrying on the welcoming theme, I arranged a beautiful urn display for the focal table in the entrance foyer, with rare lilac-rose delphiniums, ivory and deep purple larkspurs, lots of roses and hydrangeas, including a rare type of hydrangea, called Harlequin, with pretty two tone blooms, which looked just so unusual.

For the Botleys Mansion wedding reception we dresses the Atrium with our very own crystal candelabras, which were adorned with even more draping crystals for a really romantic look.  The crystal drops perfectly matched the overhead sparklyness of the Botleys amazing chandeliers so the whole effect was so consistently glamorous, up high and low down.  The crystal candelabras looked amazing with bloomy flower domes of roses, hydrangeas, scented stocks, roses and lisianthus.  For the central tables right in front of the top table, I created lavish flower rings to go around the base of the candelabras, so that guests seated at the back of the Atrium, nearer the stairs, had a clear view of the top table at speeches time. For the oval top table, I made up a matching oval display in the same style, again, with the amazing Harlequin and deep purple hydrangeas.   Finally, we dressed the stairs with storm vases surrounded by petal scatter, and we transformed the pretty plain cake with danty blooms studded here and there.
