We are going to start re-publishing some of our most loved weddings that feature in our blog archives, our old blog doesn’t get a lot of views any more and we think it’s a big shame that our newer couples don’t get to see some of our favourite weddings from the past couple of years. If you are planning a glamorous wedding with touches of white, grey and gold wedding flowers you will love Amy and Huw’s New Years Eve wedding.
I first met Amy at the Rock My Wedding Pop Up Shop last year when Lolly introduced us and knew we would be able to help her with her plans for a gorgeous New Years Eve Wedding. Amy and Huw were married in the seclusion of St Paul’s Convent, bringing back lovely memories for her family, and the couple were welcomed with open arms.
The ceremony in the chapel was followed by a sumptuous dinner and party at Edgbaston Golf Club where we helped Amy create a glamorous look for her New Years Eve wedding celebrations.
BRIDAL BOUQUET ~ WHITE, GOLD, IVORY AND GREEN
Flowers were very important to Amy and she wanted a bouquet to suit her elegant lace wedding gown. The bouquet was a mix of white, ivory and gold with touches of green from the eucalyptus. We included touches of gold with hydrangea, artichoke heads and bitter balls perfect with creamy hydrangea, roses and lisianthus all finished with a luxe gold wrap to the stems.
BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS ~ WHITE AND GOLD WEDDING FLOWERS
Amy had chosen her bridesmaids dresses with a glamour wedding in mind, the girls had wonderful gold dresses and we teamed these with hand tied bouquets of creamy flowers with accents of gold.
FLOWER CROWNS ~ GREY, WHITE AND GOLD
Later in the evening Amy planned a surprise when she changed her veil and head dress for a delicate flower crown. We always love delivering the bridal party flowers on the day when everyone is getting ready and were delighted that Amy was so happy with her flowers.
BUTTON HOLES ~ IVORY & GREY
Huw and the men had button holes of ivory roses with grey dusty miller.The stems were delicately covered with gold ribbon to tie in with the girls bouquets.
THE CEREMONY FLOWERS ~ PEW ENDS & HURRICANE LANTERNS
Flowers in the chapel were a very important part of Amy and Huw’s day and we enjoyed visiting St Paul’s to discuss details together. Hurricane lamps lined the route through the cloisters and down the aisle and provided the candlelight the couple wanted. Eucalyptus in the pew ends added a lovely winter aroma in the chapel.
THE CEREMONY FLOWERS ~ LARGE CANDELABRA
For the ceremony we added to the candlelight with large silver candelabra with creamy white flowers and touches of gold and green, the chapel looked resplendent for such a joyous occasion.
RECEPTION FLOWERS ~ LONG TOP TABLE GARLAND GREY, WHITE AND GOLD
With the wedding on New Year’s Eve Amy and Huw wanted to create a glamorous party feel to their wedding celebrations.The gold chairs set the tone and a highlight was the full length garland of flowers to the top table. Mounds of cream hydrangea, roses and touches of gold hydrangea, artichoke heads and grey foliage worked perfectly and as soon as the candles were light the room was ready for Amy and Huw to welcome their family and friends.
RECEPTION FLOWERS ~ GUEST TABLES
Amy and her mum had fun collecting vintage rose bowls, silver candelabra and silver rose bowls for the the guest tables. We loved filling them with gold, cream and grey flowers to continue the glamour look to their New Year’s Eve wedding celebration. A touch of whimsy was added by Amy and Huw, the napkins were in the shape of their pet rabbit Flapjack, who had a special visit from Amy and Huw before they arrived at their reception.
