Outstanding Orchids

4 years ago my big brother Matt married his lovely partner, Katy, and I was privileged to create the flowers to help celebrate their big day. It was a big day, bursting with colours, textures, and fun, lots of fun!

It’s fair to say that the colour theme was vibrant. Like orange, cerise and lime green kind of vibrant. Throw in a splash of white, and they really did knock your socks off with their bright kick!

Orchids, namely Phalaenopsis and Vanda orchids, helped achieve the dynamic palette, along side Cellosia, ‘Purple Power’ and ‘Wow’ roses, ‘Mango’ Calla lilies, and ‘Kermit’ Chrysanthemum.

Against their green dresses, the bridesmaids carried sectioned hand tied bouquets, with more white to help lift the flowers. The buttonholes and corsages each picked out a focal flower and colour – a lovely way to continue the theme.

The ceremony room looked the part with white trees adorned with orchids. Quite a statement at the front of the room.

The colour extravaganza continued into the reception! There were two table designs to help lead the eye around the room, one tall and one short. Both featured sliced citrus fruit, and fun, bright collections of flowers. Calla lilies were paired with steel grass and coloured sticks exploding out of a Hydrangea cushion, and sat on a tall vase – what an impact! Mini Gerberas, Dahlias, and carnations joined the other flower varieties in tight handties stood in a flower filled glass bowl, bringing the room to life.

One of my favourite weddings to date! Happy Anniversary Matt and Katy!
