Intimate Wedding at Orleans House Gallery, white, blush and pale blue palette
Updated: Aug 28
The loveliest of couples and it was such a pleasure to create flowers for Rachel and Usama's special intimate Wedding day in September. Rachel has an excellent eye for colour and knew what she loved and all her special details were beautifully captured by their photographer Rebecca Searle Photography. A very romantic small Ceremony held at the stunning Orleans House Gallery in Twickenham on the banks of the River Thames.
The stunning interior Octagon room at Orleans House Gallery, built in 1721 for the purpose of entertaining the new Georgian Royalty. It is an ideal venue for intimate Wedding ceremonies, civil partnerships and blessings.
Rachel looking stunning entering the Octagon room with her Father.
Pedestal arrangements on either side of the entrance and exit doors, which were later moved and transferred to be enjoyed at their reception celebrations.
Pedestal urns at the entrance and exit doors of Orleans House Gallery. Gorgeous palette of white, blush and touches of soft pink with a little of the palest blue which was chosen to complement the stunning ceiling in the Octagon room and the silvery blue Bridesmaid dresses. Comprising of Roses, Delphinium, Hydrangea, Anthirrium, Astilble, Snowberry and Pampas Grass with Greenery. The soft silvery blue of Eucalyptus tones beautifully with this romantic colour palette.
Rachel's bridal bouquet soft and romantic colours for a modern bride. White and pale blue with soft silvery flowers, tied with beautiful pale blue silk ribbons. Flowers included lots of textures and shape with a modern elegance, including gorgeous white Avalanche roses, Spray roses, Astilbe, Brunei berry, Erynigium Thistle, Dahlia, Delphinium Pennistrum and much more with September seasonal flowers.
Flowers for Rachel's hair were all individually wired and delivered to her on the morning of her Wedding. She had discussed hair styles with her Hair and Makeup artist and we wired a selection of little flowers that could be added to Rachel's hair at the final stages of her getting ready on her Wedding morning. Rachel looked absolutely radiant on her Wedding day and Ausra from Beauty by Ausra attached all the flowers so beautifully to the top of a low bun and veil.
Buttonhole for Usama was a little cluster of white spray rose, snowberry, thistle, brunei berry and eucalyptus, all little ingredients that were in Rachel's bridal bouquet.
Beautiful white Avalanche roses, pale pink Lisianthus, Bombastic spray roses, Astilbe, Delphinium, Snowberry and Erynigium thistle with seasonal green foliages. Texture and shape creating floral interest but in a delicate colour palette to complement the Bridesmaids detailed bead dresses.
Beautiful details captured by Rebecca their photographer. Their Wedding cake created by a member of the family who loves making cakes. Bud vases on the side of the ceremony table which were repurposed as part of the flowers for their dining table at the reception.
The grounds of Orleans House are so beautiful for capturing those beautiful tender moments and strolls between a newly married couple.
A long table at the Stanwell Hotel for their 32 guests seated on either side for an intimate dining celebration. Rachel found a lovely long silk runner for the centre of the table and taper candles and tealights were spread down the centre. We used a selection different bud vases filled with beautiful flowers that were in the Pedestal arrangements and also the bouquets. Low level and spaced down the centre of the long table allowed guests to talk easily across the dining table.
Such a gorgeous Wedding to flower and such an honour to flower Rachel and Usama's special Wedding and thank you for your kind words and sharing your wonderful photos with me.
'Thank you so much for our Wedding Flowers we got so many compliments, they were so beautiful. Our Wedding definately wouldn't have been so gorgeous without all our beautiful flowers'. Rachel and Usama 20 September 2019
