Wedding date at SE10

17th September was the Wedding of Sue and Danny. The venue was the Historic Queens House in Greenwich followed by a reception at the Trafalgar Tavern.

Sue wanted a very simple style bouquet and so I arranged a mass of white hydrangeas, their beauty and simplicity do all the work and when grouped together creates a wonderful effect.

The navy blue colour scheme was brought to life with navy blue berries and silver grey eucalyptus to match the Groom's suit. The stems were bound in midnight blue ribbon and finished with pearls.

The Bridesmaids were wearing midnight blue held mixed hand tied bouquets of ivory roses, white lizzy and germinis (one of Sue's fav flowers) dotte with Sky blue hydrangea and midnight blue berries.

The Groom and his best man had simple and elegant heads of white phalanopsis orchids, fragile....but beautiful!

As I arrived at The Park, the sun was glorious, with a cool little breeze. I just love the September sun. The terrace at the back of the house looked over the park and up the hill to the gorgeous skyline. What a perfect place for canapes and champagne.

Outside, to greet the Bridal party I arranged large displays in urns on white columns, filled with blue delphinium and hydrangeas. The shocking blue against the building looked amazing.
After that, I sped off across the road to the Trafalgar Tavern. Another favourite venue of mine, with the views across the river to the dome.

Sue wanted a bit of a wow factor, to sit with the decor of the room. I went for height...lots of it, which filled the room.
Modern touches included the wrapped stems and "barbed wire" base to the vase. I finished the centrepiece with clusters of hydrangea in silver mirrored votives.

The top table featured a low display of flowers from the theme on globe, filled with the navy wire detail.

The navy theme always seems difficult for flowers, but the shading of blue in the flowers along with the navy details from the stationary, ribbons and chair sashes, pulled together to create a stunning and elegant look.
