In May we worked with Vanessa and Stephen on their elegant wedding in the Orangery and Great Hall at Blenheim Palace. Vanessa chose rich shades of coral and soft cream for her wedding flowers. It was warm, rich and bright and worked beautifully in both the elegant venues at Blenheim. The day was photographed by Nicola and Glen (www.weddingsbynicolaandglen.com). These stunningly clear and bright photographs are amazing and show how well they know this lovely venue. We are very grateful to them for letting us publish their photographs here.
The ceremony took place in the Orangery, with tall flute vases and a large registrar’s table piece at the top of the aisle.
At intervals up the aisle we tucked bunches of coral roses and stocks into the chair sashes for a burst of colour.
The richly coloured Registrar’s table piece which was later moved to the top table in the Great Hall.

Vanessa chose a trailing shower bouquet with ivory and coral roses, lisianthus, bouvardia and lily of the valley with ruscus and parvifolia foliage.

For the younger flower girls we made spray rose circlets in rich coral .

The flowers were a perfect match for the dresses and were a really vibrant mix.
Following the ceremony in the Orangery, guests walked over to the Palace. The wedding breakfast was held in the amazing setting of the Great Hall. Alternate tables had either tall flute vases or low round cylinder vases, both of which were filled with a mix of coral coloured roses, ivory hydrangeas, soft green lisianthus, ivory avalanche roses, bouvardia, thlaspi and ruscus foliage.
The view of the Great Hall from the galleried landing upstairs was wonderful.
We moved the Registrars table piece to sit on the top table during the wedding breakfast.
