Lovely Aoife and Alan's (& Willow) Wedding - 9th June 2017

August 27, 2017

Our story with Aoife and Alan started with a social media competition on the Green Door page and ended with a wedding!

When Aoife came in to have a chat about her flowers, she was not specific. The only thing that she was certain about was : colours, colours and more colours and of course, sweet william…
Aoife’s bridesmaid Roisín, she had an absolutely different bouquet, perfectly matching her pretty blue dress with loads of flowers. She also had huge headed pink gerberas with a combination of other flowers to retain the wild look.

 Speaking of Roisín, it turns out she was a bit of a white witch! We have to share this cute, romantic story with you. When Aoife went on her first date with Alan, Roisín said “let me know when I can buy the hat”. At that time they were only in their late teens. The spell had been cast though and this year, Roisín is now Aoife’s bridesmaid. How cute is that!!
Let’s not forget the bridegroom! We just loved Alan’s buttonhole. He chose a Beatles guitar plectrum to cover the binding on the wild flower buttonhole and it looked epic. No better way to make sure he wasn’t overshadowed on the day.

One other very important member of the family is Aoife and Alan’s dog Willow. Willow is a little “energy bomb”. Unfortunately, the venue couldn’t let Willow attend the ceremony. If she had been, I’m sure she would have made a perfect second bridesmaid 🙂
We decided to make a special flower collar for her for the big day so she would feel included. Surprisingly, the flower collar lasted the day and she looked as pretty as a picture.
For the ceremonial table, the couple decided to go for another informal option. They chose loads of colours and flowers in a fabulously romantic lantern vase.
For the rest of the table decorations, as Aoife’s Mum Joanne is a big fan of flower arranging, we simply supplied her and the rest of the family with the flowers and jars and the whole gang set about putting together the table arrangements themselves. What a tremendous tribute to this lovely couple. The end product was exceptional. If any of the family need a job in Green Door Florist, we would be happy to receive the CV’s!!
From start to finish, this laid back couple and their families were an absolute pleasure to deal with and we thoroughly enjoyed helping them set up their wedding celebrations. We would like to wish them (and Willow!) many, many years of happiness together
