We do what we do because we love it. But every now and then, we hear back on how our bouquets make people feel and […]
This was a wedding just that little bit different. Every now and again, a couple comes along that just matches our style perfectly. We do enjoy all weddings. The formal wedding, the casual - all sorts. This one was different though! We love a challenge and we went with this all the way. Our designer listened carefully to the thoughts of this couple.
Gwen and Gavin knew they wanted something informal, that was for sure. They had no fixed ideas before arriving into the shop, so we all worked together to find the right solution for this one off wedding. The theme was simple and natural. The venue for the wedding ceremony itself was the Smock Alley theatre with the reception upstairs in Fallon and Byrne.
The couple were steeped in luck with beautiful autumnal sunshine streaming through the white curtains for the afternoon.
Gwen's bouquet was a masterpiece. There were lovely deep colours with a touch of romance, black, Bordeaux, pink, white... just look at the bouquet for yourselves.
Gavin and the best men each had different suits, but with matching orange ties. Fabulous! Therefore, we went with different buttonholes for each man with nothing matching. No formality.
For the ceremony, there was no traditional unity candle arrangement. Instead, we used an eco-friendly large jar with similar style of flowers from the brides bouquet giving the feel of flowers just picked from the garden that day. They looked stunning.
In Smock alley we also did the pews and the arched as this was an autumnal wedding the style was harvest with Chinese lanterns (Physalis), wheat, oak leaves and craspedia. See the photograph below. The arch was tricky, but we loved the finished product.
The celebration continued in Fallon & Byrne - guess what, there were no traditional arrangements! Gwen and Gavin went for tall glass jars filled with a similar style. All of the jars were (naturally!) different from each other although were very complimentary. Again, just link at the pictures below.
This couple love their music. As a result, each glass jar was accompanied by an album cover of Gwen and Gavin's favourite artists. Very cool! We loved being a part of this happy day. Viva la difference! We were particularly delighted to be involved with this special occasion.
We wish this extraordinary couple a very happy future and all that life can bring. xxxx All photographs ( otherwise noted) taken by the wonderful wedding photographer Elisha Clarke
