Gainsborough Golf Club

 Natalie and David held their wedding reception at Gainsborough Golf Club. I hadn't been here before but it is a lovely venue with the room upstairs affording views across the greens and to the countryside beyond.
The top table was dressed with a ruscus and ivy swag with deep red spray roses on the swag and large red roses, as the brides bouquet, on the tops. A bay tree stood either side the table.

 The guest table designs were traditional posies of red and ivory flowers with germini, roses, carnation and stallion chrysants.

 This was an intimate wedding with four guest tables splendidly dressed in red/burgundy and ivory.

 The seating plan was also given a small decoration to tie in with the top table.
The two thank you hand-ties.

Red and ivory roses

 Natalie and David first got in touch with me back in January. They already had a good idea on the colours and designs they wanted and with a little tweaking to suit the day we were soon sorted.
Natalie asked for a simple shower design, not too large or flowing, in a dark red rose. To lighten it up a little I used variegated foliage of ivy and pittospurnum with small sprigs of gyp. Each rose also had its own diamante.
 Natalie's bridesmaid carried a hand-tie posy of ivory roses and pittospurnum foliage with a few diamante in the flowers.
 David wore a matching rose and foliage to his bride with a sprig of gyp.
 The male guests wore a single ivory rose buttonhole.
The mums wore a simple corsage of three smaller ivory roses with a sprig of gyp and foliage.

Totally Gerberas

Nadine was completely sure of the flowers she wanted for her flowers: Gerberas for everything. She even knew colours she wanted: Pink and white.
Her bridal bouquet was a mass of cerise pink gerberas with a slight collar of foliage bound together with matching ribbon. Nadine had also requested lots of sparkle, so diamante were added to the centre of each flower and down the length of the stems.
The maid of honour carried a similar bouquet but with white gerberas and ribbon. Diamante were also added in the flowers and down the stems.
The bridesmaids each wore a wrist corsage of a single white gerbera with foliage on a white pearl band.
Each flower girl wore a single pink gerbera mounted on pink ribbon that was tied around their wrists.

The groom wore a pink gerbera buttonhole with salal leaves and diamante detailing.

Each of the groomsmen wore a single pink buttonhole with foliage.
The ladies each wore a single white gerbera buttonhole.

Peony and germinis

 Jayne and Gareth first met me at The Lincoln wedding fayre and almost all of our correspondence was done via e-mail with them living 'up north'. Many e-mails were sent back and forth to get the right colour combination and flower content for their chosen main colour of aqua.
The bridal bouquet was a simple mix of baby pink germini and a very pale pink peony tied together with aqua ribbon.
 The four bridesmaids each carried a small hand-tie of a mix of seasonal flowers in baby pink and ivory including germini, freesia, sweet williams and stallion chrysants tied together with aqua ribbon.
 Jayne also wore a small slide in her hair adorned with hydrangea florets, sweet william, freesia and germini petals.
 The groom wore a traditional double buttonhole of a germini and peony taken from the brides bouquet. The foliage is salal and rosemary.
 All the groomsmen wore a single germini with a salal leaf.
 The mums each wore a corsage of freesia, sweet williams, stallion and germini petals with salal and rosemary.
 I was also asked to make a small cake topper of germini and peony.
 The lovely simple designed cake.

Seasonal flowers and bird cages

 Continuing on from A country themed wedding, brides flowers, here we have the reception flowers.
Above is the registrars/top table design, incorporating flowers from the bridal bouquet. Eustoma, roses, Ammi, Hydrangea, Sweet Williams and Astrantia with tree fern, ruscus and ivy.
 The birdcages, provided by the bride, had a similar mix of flowers, with most of the design inside the cage with a few wispy flowers and foliage escaping from the cage.
 At Charlotte House the design sits on the top table.
