Elisia & David
Elisia & David's wedding was in February 2018. They celebrated their wedding at Scorrier House. All the images were captured by Debs Alexander. Elisa and David chose our Styled Wedding Service. You can read more about this service here.
Even in the depths of winter we provided British flowers for this wedding. Using seasonal flowers meant that the arrangements remained in keeping with the time of year - it would have looked wrong to have had a room filled with peonies in February! Elisia worked closely with us over the colour palatte and over all styling of her wedding. She wanted a elegant event with the colour of the flowers to be soft and timeless.
Elisia's bouquet was made up of simple ingredients allowing a more striking bouquet with soft tonal colours. The main flower were the rannunclus, blending in hellebores to the foliage which was a varigated pittosporum. The dancing pieces came from the early flowering jasmine which also provided scent. We did break our rule of only British flowers and added the tiniest bit of wax flower....please don't shout at us! Elisia's bouquet was finished with plant dyed silk ribbon by Lancaster & Cornish.
Buttonholes were made for each of the groomsmen using the rannunclus as the key flower. Finished with jute twine and a pearl pin they remained very natural. Each of the four bridesmaids wore floor length royal blue dresses which really set off the flowers beautifully. Their bouquets each finished with a cream silk. Elisia's brought her dress via The Bridal House of Cornwall based in Truro. The long sleeves and lace detail worked so well for a winter wedding.
The floral installation was created using mainly large branches of camellia which we then wove around our floor lanterns. Soft candlelight really works well during winter weddings so it is worth checking to see if your venue will allow you to use them.
The tables were dressed with seasonal flowers in either pale pinks or milky whites. We used flower shrubs like viburnum as a base to the arrangement. Keeping the arrangements low allowed guests to still strike up conversations across the table. Elisia hired our brass candlesticks and we used beautiful natural toned tapered candles for the dinner.
