A May wedding in Edinburgh

Dawn's colour scheme was inspired by the groom's Buchanan tartan. She wanted to utilise neutral colours and orange.

The bouquet was made with roses, freesias, alchimella mollis and eucalyptus. Rosa Cherry Brandy was a perfect match with the orange tones of the tartan .

I made arrangements in gold fish bowls for the wedding breakfast, which was held in Wedgwood. The contemporary restaurant interior really suited the modern displays. The spherical arrangements contrasted with the rectangular shaped tables and the warm tones of the bronze calla lilies worked really well with the red walls.

The evening reception was held in The Lot in the Grassmarket. I decorated the stair case and pillars inside the venue with bunches of flowers and foliage.

Destination wedding at Edinburgh Castle

Ashley travelled from the USA for her destination wedding at the very picturesque Edinburgh Castle. Her ceremony was held in St Margaret's Chapel.

She wanted a yellow hand-tied bouquet. I used yellow roses (Tara), lemon-yellow Colombian spray roses, gerbera (Okidoki) and freesia (White River). The groom wore a boutonniere to match the bride's bouquet.
