Amore – Pembroke Lodge wedding flowers

Dramatic Red Winter Wedding at Pembroke Lodge


When Katie forwarded me her Youtube taster video after the wedding, I can honestly say that I felt so touched, my eyes started to well up.  I put it down to Christina Perri’s hauntingly beautiful lyrics of I have Loved You For ‘A thousand Years’ which perfectly suited the moment.  I own up, I am a big softie and it’s not that deep down either.  Love is precious and tender and for this I call this post Amore.

For this dramatic winter wedding at Pembroke Lodge, Katie opted for all red wedding flowers, as a nod to the red roses bouquet that Katie gets every year from Mark, without fail, on the anniversary of their proposal.  Katie opted for a neat modern bouquet of red roses with a sparkling of sparkly Swarovski crystals and the bridesmaids carried matching bouquets of ivory roses, while the young flower girl held a small red roses star wand posy.  The mens buttonholes echoed this with Mark having a red rose buttonhole, while all other men wore ivory rose buttonholes.  This really bold, romantic and powerful look truly transformed the Belvedere Suite. The room is such a lovely and neutral blank canvas that the strong colour scheme, coupled with a long list of softer dreamy touches, made it all come together beautifully.  A gorgeous ceiling tulle drape decorated the ceiling and the windows were draped with sheer fabrics and looked amazing, all thanks to Host With Style

Flowers wise, the ceremony room was styled with bird cage centrepieces of red roses and opulent red amaryllis lilies lining the wedding aisle, casting a lovely candlelight glow as Katie made her way down the aisle. 

At the entrance end of the aisle, we placed two of our stunning ceiling-height white blossom flower trees, available for hire at Pembroke Lodge weddings, and we added hanging lanterns and bird cage lanterns, all candlelit to add a lot of warmth and ambiance.  At the ceremony end, we placed two grand floral urns of elegant red gladiola, red roses and bloomy opulent amaryllis, to create a bold and beautiful backdrop to the wedding ceremony.  The ceremony table was styled with pretty vases of deep red roses which were later on used on the top table.

For the wedding breakfast, the guest tables were dressed with the square bird cage centrepieces from the aisle, and additional round bird cage wreath centrepieces to match.  Again, the bold choice of colour looked really fantastic against the white table linen.

I hope you enjoy this brief selection of photos from Katie & Mark’s wedding.  If you are planning your own Pembroke Lodge wedding and are in need of ideas, please visit our Pembroke Lodge featured weddings full of more inspiration and ideas about what looks nice at Pembroke.
