Charlotte & Jon’s embraced a bolder colour scheme
Catching up with posts from last year’s weddings, I just had to share these pretty and bold flower designs from September’s wedding at Botleys Mansion. Most of the beautiful shots below are thanks to Bill Sykes Wedding Photography. Bill is a recommended photographer at Botleys Mansion, so if you are planning your wedding at Botleys Mansion and need a trusted photographer, his website is a great place to start.
Charlotte and Jon chose a beautiful and bold colour scheme for their wedding at Botleys Mansion, with soft lilacs and deep purple, not diluted by too much ivory. We added sage green eucalyptus to link in with the Green Room’s soft sage colour scheme. For her and the bridesmaids bouquets, Charlotte opted for textural bouquets of lilac Pacific Blue and Memory Lane roses, lilac and deep purple lisianthus, pinky lilac scented stocks, and frilly limonium. We added just a teeny bit of ivory to the bridesmaids bouquets, for more contrast against their rich purple full length dresses. The mens buttonholes and corsages used a combination of ivory and lilac with silvery sage green eucalyptus. Charlotte and her bridesmaids loved their bouquets which looked lovely against Charlotte’s lacey dress and the bridesmaids long chiffon dresses. And not a hint of nerves showing as they are about to go into the ceremony room!
Guests were welcome to the venue with a tall elegant silver fluted vase display on the lobby table, giving an early hint that this was going to be a bolder colour scheme. The lilac & purple flowers looked lovely in the light and airy Green Room for the ceremony, and afterwards in the amazingly tall atrium for the wedding breakfast. The Green Room was styled simply but very nicely with matching tall vase displays framing the ceremony area, placed on our tall plinths to raise them up to head height. We dressed the aisle with pretty chair flower posies with long purple trailing ribbons, and dressed the ceremony table with matching rose bowls centrepieces, and pretty lilac rose petals.
Following reception drinks and photos outside, Charlotte, Jon and their guests went in for the wedding breakfast in the grand, tall-ceilinged atrium. The tall vase displays used in the ceremony room and the lobby were used to dress most of the guest table in the atrium, drawing much needed impact high up, to reflect the atrium’s very tall ceiling with amazing crystal candelabras. A few of the tables were also dressed with low rose bowl centrepieces to make it more interesting, and the top table was styled with the line up of bridesmaids bouquets placed in matching silver vases. The effect was bold and dramatic and looked perfect for the time of year.
