Easter Elegance. Caroline and Peter

This Easter weekend- I had the pleasure of arranging the Wedding flowers for Caroline and Peter at Sundridge Park Mansion in Bromley. The black, white and silver theme works really well at this venue and has an elegant an classic feel. Caroline's favourite flower was the gerbera and so the theme of "black eye" gerberas became the main focus for the flowers.

 The Ceremony was set up in the Garden room and and the black and white looked amazing against the red carpet aisle. I arranged pedestals at the back of the room which added to the romance...along with the string quartet!

The staircase at Sundridge is a focal point of the Wedding as the Caroline will make her way down from here and so its lovely to dress as there are always lots of photo opportunities here- so its good make the most of that.

 The gorgeous cake was provided by Yummy Cake Company. Lots of sparkle and layers of geberas!

The Bridesmaids wore silver cocktail dresses and held simple domes of white gerberas and edged with foliage. The stems were bound in matching silver ribbon. Caroline's dress was an A line white satin dress with crystals on the bodice. The bridal bouquet was made up of white gerberas and ivory roses. Caroline wanted a modern touch and so I edged the dome with a collar of looped grass.  

As Caroline wanted to keep her bouquet but also wanted to do the traditional "throwing of the bouquet" I made a small throw bouquet of germinis and labelled it "Catch me if you can!..." LOVE IT.

The Ballroom was dressed with candelabras with domes of white, ivory and black flowers- Stunning! 
I used a classic combination of lilies, roses and hydrangeas (imported ones as its still very early for these!) and added the modern touch by bringing in the gerberas and some black foliage to add the detail.

The theme continued on the tables with black and white movie covers as their table names. I really like the Love and Mr and Mrs signs dotted on the tables. Really Lovely. I saw the new Mr and Mrs Nottage the morning after and Caroline told me she was "amazed and couldn't have wished for anything more" . X
