Caledonian Hall - Royal Botanic Gardens

"Thank you for doing such a fab job on my flowers. The whole room looked beautiful and my bouquet was especially perfect. Thank you!"

Charlotte chose pale blue Hydrangea for her wedding at the Caledonian Hall, R0yal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh. The setting for the wedding was extremely romantic and the Autumn colours made a superb backdrop for her outdoor ceremony. The hydrangea looked classicly beautiful and I'm looking forward to seeing photos of the pedestals in location.

 Pale blue hydrangea, simply tied together with a white ribbon. Classic and stylish.

The fresh flower cake topper added a wow factor.

Elegant table centres - blue hydrangea and beargrass in a fish bowl.

A smaller design utilising the same flowers decorated the marquee.

The two pedestals which would be placed outdoors for the ceremony.

Lesley and Richard - September wedding

This was my first wedding after having a baby in June! Thankfully my mum came up to Edinburgh to help look after Adam whilst I did the flowers. It all went well and I'm looking forward to doing more floristry.

The bridesmaids wore bright turquoise dresses and so the hot pink of Aqua Roses would have looked fantastic. As well as roses, I used Thistles and Hypericum.

The bride's bouquet had the same flowers but with the addition of Eustoma, Veronica and greenery.

Flowers packaged ready for delivery:

Bride's bouquet

Bridesmaid's bouquet

Thistle and Heather buttonholes

Purple and pink Lisianthus corsage
