A story of a summer wedding...
A summer wedding is always a joy. Caroline and Nathan were recently married in St. John's church, Clontarf and on to the Morrison Hotel. We were chosen to supply the wedding flowers for the big day. It was a real privilege to work with this couple and to help them on the day of their marriage. They were such an easy couple to deal with.
This is the season for flowers, with nature spoiling us by providing a huge range of delightful blooms to choose from, making this summer wedding a real treat for us. Caroline selected the peony rose, which really was a superb choice. These beauties were bang on in season and were just so fresh and delightful. Just look at the photos! We know that when the wedding pictures are being looked at in years to come that this excellent choice will shout out "summer wedding" with this queen of the summer roses.
The church flowers were prepared using natural pew end arrangements, two large pedestals and the unity candle arrangement. All very simple and natural as you can see.
The bridesmaids and bride had elegant hand tied bouquets. The groom and his four groomsmen looked very handsome with their classic buttonholes to complement the bridal party flowers.
After the ceremony, the party continued at the reception in the hotel where we had prepared individual small bowl table arrangements for each table as a centrepiece. In the photos, these arrangements are shown grouped together at the foot of the wedding cake. Prior to the day we had the pleasure of meeting Jen and her partner from the cake suppliers (www.cupcakesandcounting.com). We worked with this company, supplying them with the flowers to incorporate into the cake. This ensures that the theme of soft colours, beautiful pureness and simplicity follow through. The cake was wonderful and these guys are real masters of the art of the cake!
We have put the photos up with kind permission of the couple so you can see how it all worked together. Credit to the photographer also for the super shots you can see here (www.emmarussellphotography.ie) What a great day... We wish Caroline and Nathan a wonderfully happy life together and hope that they have a long and joyous marriage. What a lovely couple!
