For her winter wedding at Rhinefield House Kirsty had chosen a white and purple colour scheme and she was keen to give her flowers a Guy Fawkes twist whilst keeping the overall look elegant. To good an opportunity to miss I thought and so here is what we came up with -
Winter wedding bouquet in white and purple using roses, white and purple calla lilies with huge spider chrysanthemums. I really love these Chrysanthemums for a winter wedding particularly and we both thought they were perfect for the Guy Fawkes theme, just like exploding fireworks.
Kirsty's white and purple wedding bouquet finished with a diamante flower brooch that matched the detail on her gorgeous wedding dress.
Guy Fawkes night inspired bridesmaids' bouquets of white carnation complete with a silver diamante firework. Actually, originally a hair slide I found on my travels. As soon as I saw them I thought of Kirsty's wedding, a pair of pliers and some floristry wire soon had them adapted for use in the bouquets.
The ceremony table was decorated with these vases of white spider chysanthemums finished with purple ribbon and a diamante buckle. They were also a perfect compliment to Kirsty's elegant wedding cake so after the wedding I moved them to the cake table where they looked rather splendid.
For the tables, Kirsty chose these silver candelabra with mirror plate and silver pots of white spider chrysanthemums and carnations to keep the theme going. A scattering of purple table crystals completed the look and all the tables were named after fireworks. How splendid are those toffee apples !
