Becky and Chris - Avengers, Lego, Hot Pink & 50's Styling = Creative Bliss!

Hi guys

It's so good to be back on the blog.  I've really missed posting regularly but with Mel taking a really well-earned two week break and more of you than ever coming to see me, it's been a bit of a challenge to stay on top of everything! Anyway, I've a couple of posts in mind which I'm planning on sharing with you really soon, but without further ado, I'll hand you over to our lovely Amy who's written another of her fab blogs all about one of our lovely couples.


Thanks T, so today we are bringing you a bright and beautiful wedding from September 2014. Becky and Chris got married at the Van Dyke Hotel and went for a 1950's inspired day with lots of references to Avengers and Lego characters as they're both massive fans.  Becky chose soft dove greys teamed with the brightest hot pinks for her florals and as you'll see from the photographs, the interior of the hotel is lovely but the gardens to make a beautiful back drop for the photographs especially if, like us, you are a bit of a flower lover.

For her bouquet Becky went for a quite compact style posy (which works brilliantly with the silhouette of her fifties inspired tea length dress) with plenty of hot pinks and a little lavender to loosen the design.  Becky also wanted seasonal flowers where possible so we included dahlia, thistles, echinops, brunia, spray roses and a little eucalyptus. For that extra special impact, we also ordered some stunning 'Darcy' David Austin roses.  They were absolutely beautiful, smelt divine and worked so well with all the lovely textures in her bouquet.  We also designed a bridal crown for Becky too with colours and flowers from the theme but this she wanted to look 'just picked' which I think T and Mel captured beautifully.  The bridesmaids had a similar designs, just a little smaller.

For the table flowers Becky provided us with her own coloured mismatched glass vases which we designed into using suitable flowers and foliage from her theme.

On the picture below you can see quite clearly the Marvel/Lego theme.  We love it when brides add their own personal touches to their day.  Fantastic!

Thank you to One Wedding for letting us use some of your stunning photography.  If you have enjoyed looking at the pictures feel free to pop across to One Wedding website for more examples of their work.

PS:  I also dug out some pretty rubbish shots I took on my phone of some of the Becky & Chris' designs but they do show you the bridesmaid's bouquets in detail and also some of the buttonhole details which Becky provided us with, they were a fun surprise for the groom and key members of the wedding party!

Becky had a few really soft dove grey succulents in her bouquet for even more texture

And yes, those are carnations. But I love them (and so did Becky too!)

We' even managed to pop a few locally grown seasonal pretties into the bridesmaids' bouquets

He he!  Aren't these great? A lovely keepsake too for the men.

I just loved this wedding.  So much thought, creativity and personality too! I even caught a glimpse of a shot of Becky holding her bouquet in a full iron man mask  - which I'd absolutely love a copy of ... hint, hint!
