Seasonal Fun at Our Christmas Workshop We held our annual Christmas Workshop a few weeks ago and as ever it was a huge success! This […]
Aoife lives near our funky little florist shop. She and her mum are two of our friendly neighbourhood faces and they always stop for a chat whenever they’re passing. We were delighted when Aoife asked us to cater for her wedding to Luke and it was an absolute joy to be involved!
Right from the beginning Aoife knew exactly what style she wanted. She didn’t have specific flowers in mind, but she wanted a relaxed, natural style and she definitely wanted something a little more edgy than traditional roses.
She decided to opt for a brightly coloured palette, using some traditional pinks but with wonderful orange to liven things up and the end result was fabulous! Her bouquet in particular looked wonderful against the backdrop of her clean, white, 50s style wedding dress.
Aoife’s bridal bouquet was formed from fluffy, pale pink peonies, lipstick pink sweet pea, playful yellow craspedia, and bright orange blooms. The diverse shades of pink and orange were married together with fantastic houdini garden roses, which have a lemon yellow centre and fade gently through orange and peach to a soft salmon pink. We even managed to squeeze in lilac limonium, burgundy astilbe and a variety of foliage.
For Luke we created a buttonhole in a mini bouquet style, echoing the same colours in Aoife’s bouquet, formed from sunshine yellow craspedia, purple limonium, an azure thistle and muted green greenery.
For the ceremony, we put together a candle arrangement based on the same colour scheme as Aoife’s bouquet, with the addition of tiger orange marigolds and kangaroo paws and extra foliage, incorporating silvery eucalyptus which contrasted perfectly with the orange and pink combination.
After the ceremony they had dinner in Brother Hubbard, where they had our popular little mini milk bottles on each table in the same colourful design as the rest of the wedding flowers.
"One of the best in the business! Lilla and her team use super high quality, beautiful and very unique flowers and always create something unusual and special for every occasion! The Green Door did the flower arrangements for our wedding and they were even better than I could have imagined. I really loved my bouquet. They are lovely, friendly people who are amazing at bringing their customers’ ideas to life! Their shop also has lots of cute and quirky plants and succulents that are perfect gifts. I would recommend them for any occasion without hesitation."
