This wedding took place at The Old Dr Bells Baths in Leith. It was my first time at this venue and I was impressed - a large rectangular space, clean wooden floors, a modern bar and cosy chill out area. I made the table centres in situ - bunches of Paeonies, Veronica and Astilbe and long lengths of Populus (Italian eucalptus). It was a warm day and the Paeonias were opening before my eyes and looked beautiful. It can be tricky using Paeonias as they usually arrived closed and you have to manage them opening up in time for the weddding. They look resplendent but florists are happy they only have a short season! The couple had selected a lighting company to dress the venue further, it looked stunning when it was all set up! The room was used for the ceremony as well as the wedding breakfast so I didn't get to place the arrangements on the tables.
