Robbie & Amelia’s Wedding

Summer has gone (is going) in a flash and we are overdue a blog post or two.

Robbie and Amelia’s wedding was back in May.  They both live in Atlanta and had decided to get married in London after both travelling here whilst Amelia was studying. Their wedding was intimate, about 25, people and because of the size Amelia was really able to focus on the details including spray painted dinosaurs which doubled as place name holders.

Amelia studied as a designer so she had a good idea of what she wanted and what worked well. Amelia wanted the flowers to be muted and elegant but with lots of texture.    She originally wanted blushing bride proteas – but they were just out of season, so we adapted the bouquet to include Juliet roses instead.  We also used deep blue thistles  for the buttonholes and in the reception flowers – complementing Robbie’s Scottish heritage.

The reception was at The Grazing Goat, Marylebone and we decided to have a mixture of arrangements using a small milk glass pedestal vases, gold mercury tea lights and vases which were all different sizes.  Amelia had brought along a lovely runner and napkins rings which along with the flowers, lifted the table setting.

The pictures of this fun day, filled with lots of love have been captured by  Caterina Ley (apart from the reception shots – which are courtesy of my iPhone!).
