Claret, burgundy & blush wedding at Pembroke Lodge

Spring wedding in the Belvedere


I adored the colour scheme at Emily & Richard’s wedding at Pembroke Lodge.  We used a mix of claret, burgundy, blush and dusty pinks, and the pinks were the perfect antidote for this potentially looking bit Christmassy, which might have happened if the pale ivory and the deep opposing claret & burgundy had not been bridged and blended by a third colour tone. 

Emily’s bridesmaids wore a really gorgeous shade of deep reddish claret, in some lights almost burgundy, and the wedding stationery all had a pretty floral design with burgundy and pinks.  So the colour scheme for the flowers were guided by this.  We used a lovely mix of roses, blush hydrangeas, spring burgundy hellebores , dainty dusty pink astrantia, claret mini button chrysanthemums, and wispy pink astilbe.  The sage green eucalyptus foliage added a lovely contrast to the rich colour scheme. 

The ceremony room was dressed with two focal displays in elegant 1930s art deco style silver vase displays adding a beautiful backdrop to the wedding ceremony, and chair flowers down the wedding aisle.  The ceremony table was styled with 2 of the low table centrepieces.  Along with additional matching rose bowls centrepieces and 2 tall displays, the guest table dressing was complete, putting everything that had been used to dress the ceremony area, to really good use for the wedding breakfast. The chairs with flowers from down the aisle, were reused as top table chairs so the chair posies were also put to good use as Emilys guiding  approach was no waste. For the wedding breakfast the 2 tall displays tae much needed impact high up in the Belvedere, adding contrast against the plain wall colours. 

The gorgeous photography was provided by the lovely Fiona Kelly who we often gladly seen at Pembroke Lodge as she is also a recommended supplier at Pembroke. Her photography is lovely and relaxed, yes vibrant and always lovely to view.
