A Seaside Wedding - Alix & Mark
Updated: Nov 4
I'm a huge fan of the beach...I love them! So when Alix and Mark asked me to do their wedding flowers that overlooked the beach then you won't be surprised that my answer was 'Yes please!'. Opting for colourful, rainbow blooms and lush foliages for this boho, seaside wedding.
Looking for a boho, festival inspired bouquet, Alix chose an asymmetrical bouquet full of oranges, purples, hot pinks, corals and teal greens. Filling her bouquet with orange Foxtail Lilies , Cadburys purple Lisianthus, the most gorgeous orange Roses, hot pink Ranunculus and lashing of Eucalyptus in all it's forms and finished with teal ribbon. Wearing a gorgeous, lace gown, Alix's wild and wonderful bouquet complimented it perfectly.
The girls wore flowers in their hair rather than carrying them in their hands! Simple, colourful crowns adorned the girls hair using purple Sweet Peas and hot pink miniature Roses. The maids wore beautiful, white floor length gowns, and the crowns added colour to their outfit!
Now buttonholes maybe small but they are just as important! 'Miss Piggy' Roses were the chosen flower for the Gent's buttonholes. Coral shades and they smell so sweet-gorgeous!
Now to the ceremony flowers, this was one of my favourite parts of the venue to decorate! The inside window that looked down onto the dance floor was the spotlight for the ceremony. We adorned it with fresh, colourful blooms and plenty of foliage of wild foliage, in keeping with the natural, boho look they wanted.
High above the dance floor we decorated two wooden beams. Adorning them in wild blooms and plenty of foliages! Peonies, Foxtail Lilies, Roses, Snapdragons, Japanese Anemones and lots of lush foliages.
With 120 guests there can't be any messing around with space on the tables and room is need for champagne flutes! To save on space Alix and Mark chose long foliage garlands and antique gold and bronze candlesticks to dress the tables. In the low ceiling dining area the candles flicked beautifully as the speech's were made.
Bannister Flowers and Bottles
The bannister of the stairs leading to the ceremony room were dressed with pops of colourful blooms and entwined with foliage's. A collection of vintage bottles and blooms were dotted around, decorating little areas of the venue, including the boho styled chill out area!
So an amazing wedding, a beautiful couple and a stunning venue...what more could a florist want!?
