Rebecca and Liam's Wedding at The Florentine - Soft, romantic and stylish

Hi all,

With the weather still being on the chilly side I thought I would stick with a winter wedding from November last year.  Rebecca and Liam got married at Nether Green Methodist Church, with the reception being held at The Florentine.  The couple wanted to get married in the winter but they didn't want a Christmassy wedding - although I did spot a cracker being pulled in the last photo but who could resist?

For her bouquet Rebecca wanted something very pretty and romantic, flowing and cascading with plenty of texture.  The colour pallet was to remain quite soft with hints of silver and blushes.  The flowers and foliage chosen were green bell, Vendella roses, Sweet Avalanche roses, Bombastic roses, lisianthus, eucalyptus, brunia, lavender, senecio, kochia, eucalyptus berries, steel berry, blue thistle, white astrantia and symphorcarpus.

The bridesmaids had more of a posy style, featuring flowers and foliage from the brides bouquet. The buttonholes were kept to a simple sprig design with the ladies having a few more pretty buds and feminine blooms in there.

Something that we are seeing more and more for venue flowers, are couples providing their own containers.  We do have lots of lovely vases etc of our own to hire out but lots of couples are opting to use their own, as it's just another personal touch that makes the day their own.

Rebecca and Liam even took the time to write us a lovely thank you e-mail which read like this:

"Hi Tracey'

Hope you're well and that you had a fab Christmas break and Happy New Year!

As you know, I trusted you from the second we met - I just knew that you could picture the ideas in my mind, but make them even better than I could have imagined!  You definitely delivered on this; even now when I look at the photos I spot something in the bouquet that I hadn't noticed before!  All of our guests commented on how wonderful the flowers were too! We're so lucky that you created all of our wonderful wedding flowers and are very grateful to you and the team for playing such an important part in our day.  There's only one downside to sending this e-mail and that's that I don't get to have meetings with you anymore - it was always such a pleasure and lots of fun!

Thank you so much again.

Lots of love

Thanks Aimz for your lovely post about these gorgeous people. I can't begin to tell you how much I loved working with Rebecca, she's a most wonderfully enthusiastic person whose bubbly, happy personality made our meetings and emails so much fun.  We both agreed how much we're going to miss each other now that she's a missus (although I'm secretly hoping she'll pop along to one of our workshops so we can keep laughing).  A massive thank you to you both for making our jobs and ur time together such fun - it was a compete joy and hope to see you soon.
