THIS BLOOMING LOVELY WEDDING IS A COLOUR LOVERS PARADISE!
It’s no secret that we love a colourful wedding here at BB HQ but Lizzie & Joe’s has to be one of the most colourful yet! Owner of a floristry business in London, Lizzie knew her guests would be expecting a lot of floral decorations, but not wanting to feel like she was ‘at work’ this blooming bride (pun intended!) did something quite different indeed…
“I run a floristry business called Early Hours in London, so I knew my guests were expecting to see a lot of floral decoration. So I decided to make my church service and dress all about the flowers (my 8 bridesmaids had also worn a different coloured floral crown each); but at the venue I wanted to focus on ribbons, moss and glitter, rather than your classic floristry.” Lizzie began.
“We used random combination of different colours, vibes, music and entertainment. This wasn’t deliberate, it just happened; and as a result the wedding ended up being more interesting than we anticipated!” She explained.
“For my tables, my team created tree sculptures covered in hanging rainbow colored ribbons; and we had moss table runners, scattered multi colored Pom Poms and tiny bottles of fairy dust glitter as wedding favours. We also made our own Confetti using the same Pom Poms, sequins and glitter.”
“I filled my dance floor ceiling with balloons, and released them later in the day. My table plan was a series of planted birdcages and the ceiling of our marquee was a ribbon waterfall. It was a really beautiful colour explosion. Outside the marquee entrance we created a rainbow forest of hand painted birch trees. I’m very proud that the wedding decorations came together the way they did, I wasn’t really certain it would work as a whole concept – but it totally did thanks to my talented floral team!” Lizzie added.
“My wedding dress was created by my friends at Satin and Silk in Hereford. They literally made me my dream wedding dress. It was created by using a beautiful classic super-sized wedding dress that they found for me in their ‘last season’ selection. They then turned it into the dress that I was seeing in my dreams by adding in hundreds of extra metres of the palest green tulle, and then hand stitching hundreds of flowers on. They went above and beyond with my dress, and I still can’t quite believe they made it so perfect for me. I felt like a modern-day movie princess!”
“Planning weddings are stressful… try to enjoy it! And don’t pick a theme, just pick out the things you like- it just comes together better that way and isn’t forced. Lastly, invest in your photography and videography as it lasts a lifetime.”
