Rachel's May Wedding took place at the stunning Domus in Beaulieu, one of my favourite venues. The colour theme was the ever popular purple, gorgeous venue, gorgeous flowers. I thought you might like to see them and so here they are. For lovers of purple everywhere.

Purple, white and lilac wedding bouquet
Rachel's gorgeous shower/tear drop bouquet was made to measure, Rachel is a very petite bride so I made this bouquet suitably petite too. Petite brides need not worry about carrying a bouquet of this general shape, they can be made to suit any frame. Lovers of purple also might like to know that all these flowers are available all year round.

The staircase to the Domus decorated with tea lights and fresh rose petals. The ceremony room here is found up some beautiful stone steps that look just stunning dressed in this way.

Pedestal design in purples, ivories and lilacs with church candles at the base of the aisle which is in front of you as you come up the steps with the window ledge designs behind.Perfect for creating maximum impact.
Window ledge flowers at the Domus. Church candles in a vase surrounded by roses and petals, modern but soft and romantic too. I thought as I was doing it, that actually this idea would make a stunning table centre.
Goldfish bowl design of ivory rose and lilac freesia with church candle used here on the small window ledges. These were later used as the guest table centres with a generous scattering of lilac rose petals and long burn tea lights in matching votive holders to finish.
Co-ordinating design of roses, freesias and lisianthus in purples and whites with the central church candles for the ceremony table.
Tall table centre in purples, lilacs and whites used behind the ceremony table because it seemed a shame not too. Rachel and Paul had a round top table and this was their centre piece.

That just leaves me to say thank you so much Rachel and Paul for choosing me to design and create your wedding flowers for you, I absolutely loved putting this scheme together for you. And very many congratulations on your marriage.
