Ivory & Sky-blue Wedding Flowers in Great Fosters’ Orangers
It is rare to be able to feature a wedding where both the ceremony and the wedding breakfast took place in the beautifully light Orangery at Great Fosters, and what better example than this one, with pretty designs of ivory wedding flowers with the lightest of sky blue accents. With a lot of elegant silver glassware and props, the light and airy wedding flowers combination suited the light room just perfectly!
As this was in the middle of the paeony season, the bridal and bridesmaids bouquets were simply gorgeous, with a mix of scented ivory paeonies, roses and spray roses, and a light sprinkling of pale sky blue muscari. The mens ivory rose and muscari buttonholes were a perfect match.
The Orangery was dressed with whitewashed chiavari chairs keeping the sense of light and space in the lovely room! The aisle started with two elegant silver candelabra table centrepieces being placed on plinths to flank the last rows of chairs and finished with two focal urn centrepieces with dramatic flowers. The wedding aisle was lined with pretty rose petals and candlelit storm vases on the floor, and alternating posies of flowers hanging in pretty silver vintage vases off the chair sides. And finally the ceremony table used candlelit wreaths of flowers at each end, connected by more rose petals and vintage silver votives. I loved the amazing blue delphiniums used in the tall urn displays, so striking and unusual: fading from ivory with a hint of blue towards deeper sky blue as you look down each stem, they seemed just perfect for this wedding. And so naturally stunning!
After photos outside the Orangery was waiting to welcome guests back in with a new look, after being turned around for the wedding breakfast. The guest tables were dressed with a mixture of tall silver candelabra centrepieces and candlelit storm vase flower rings centrepieces, and the bridesmaids bouquets and the chair end posies were used to dress the front of the top table. Nothing was left unused and the amazing summery urn centrepieces created a beautiful background to the top table. Our vintage silver mercury glass votives and tall stemmed votives were used to add even more light in the evening, and looked stunning with the ivory and pale blue colour scheme. I hope you enjoy these beautiful photos as much as I did – with special thanks to Jon Dennis of S6 Photography.
