Sam & Lauren’s ivory & blush flowers at Botleys Mansion
Ivory & blush flowers are so popular for weddings at the moment. And looking back at these pretty wedding flower designs for Lauren and Sam’s wedding at Botleys Mansion, you can see why this delicate colour look is so popular. Lauren and Sam tied the knot at Botleys Mansion, using the beautiful Green Room for their wedding ceremony while the wedding breakfast was in the stunning light Atrium glasshouse. Combining the more traditional Green Room upstairs (typically used for ceremonies) and the bright and airy grand Atrium downstairs, the house offers a very neutral, light and classic backdrop for weddings, with luxurious touches in a more contemporary setting.
Lauren opted for a very very pale colour palette of mainly ivory-white with very very subtle hints of pale blush, just a hint of it. She loved eucalyptus so we used plenty of that in all the bouquets and the table styling. The result was light and airy, and perfectly fitted both the ceremony room and the Atrium. Most of Lauren’s bridesmaids wore very pale dusty pink and pinky lilac dresses and two of the bridesmaids wore patterned pastel floral dresses. This was a beautiful look for the bridesmaids but it meant that the design of the bridesmaids bouquets had to carry carefully across the two dress designs and 3 colour schemes. So we opted for beautifully scented bouquets of O’Hara hint of blush garden roses and eucalyptus, which looked and smelt divine. If you are considering mixed or patterned dresses bear in mind the flowers and bouquet style choices as its always a bit of a challenge to make to look great.
For the wedding ceremony in the Green Room, the focal ceremony area was dressed with a delicate rustic arch with eucalyptus, hydrangeas and roses, with lots of candles at the base of the arch, which looked amazingly romantic. We styled the chairs with dreamy tule sashes and added single beautifully scented Ohara garden roses and eucalyptus sprigs to each end chair. The room smelt fantastic!
Finally, for the wedding breakfast in the Atrium glasshouse, Lauren opted for long banqueting style tables which we dressed with lovely floral and foliage runners running down the middle of the long tables, peppered with lots of mixed style candleholders , candlesticks and votives. I imagine that in the evening when all the candles were lit, with the beautiful Botleys chandeliers above, the room looked very atmospheric. This was the first wedding at Botleys to have this unusual banqueting tables layout and I’m so happy to have been part of this experience, it looked really gorgeous. I’m rather looking forward to recreating this sort of look again.
