Dalhousie Castle wedding inc tall table centre arrangements

Dalhousie Castle sits just outside of Edinburgh. It's a beautiful building to be married in and always a pleasure working there. I usually spend a few hours at a wedding venue on the day of the ceremony - setting up the table centres and making the pedestals - but this wedding required two trips. I spent Friday evening setting up the tall conical vases - filling them with gel beads, covering the top with ribbon and wire, and securing the container with oasis, thus allowing me plenty of time on the Saturday to make all the arrangements in situ.

The flowers used included blue hydrangea, Akito roses, white spray roses, gypsophila, white carnations and thistles.

Wedding at Glencorse House, Edinburgh

Glencorse House, Edinburgh. A beautiful day and a gorgeous choice of flowers. Delphiniums, paeonies, eucalyptus, clematis, roses, among others. For the table centres, flowers were placed in antique pewter teapots, which had been placed on slices of log.

Sprigs of rosemary and lavender adorned each napkin.

The hand-tied bouquets were a mixture of rose, paeonia and eucalyptus. The bride's bouquet incorporated a pop-out pink paeonia. The stems were tied with twine.
