Purple, plum and Lilac

On 11th September was the wedding of Catrina and Matt. They had chosen a church wedding at Christ Church Chislehurst followed by the recpetion at the Bromley Court Hotel. The theme of the day was Purple, shades from deep cadbury's to powder lilac.

The bridesmaids wore deep purple dresses and the bouquets were a mixture of white roses, Lilac roses, freesia, lisianthus and lime green foilages.

Catrina wanted a romantic but modern look to her flowers so I used a striking combination of the roses and deep purple lizzy. There were hints of sparkle through out the day and so I added diamontes to the roses for a hint of glamour!

The Church was dressed beautifully and traditionally with pedastals and pew ends. The pews were styled with bunched stocks and mint tied with purple chiffon bows. The overall effect was so lovely and smelt amazing. The Priest even told me it was the nicest he had ever seen the Church look which was lovely.

After an emotional ceremony, the guests went onto the hotel. Wow factor was what Catrina wanted as they entered the room. and they got it!

Martini vases filled with light sparkled pearls held huge domes of flowers with amazing coloured mottled hydrangeas that blended all the shades of purple from the day. Oreintal lilies, roses and lizzy added to the mix to create an show stopping centrepiece.

The top table was dressed with a long and low from the theme and finished with a fairy light heart as a backdrop.

The cake was individual cakes all different shades and personalised with the Bride an Groom's initials. I simply dressed around the cake to add to the colours.
Congratulations Catrina and Matt. xx
