Breathtaking Lilac Wedding

August 1, 2018

In early May Georgina married Steve in a phenomenal ceremony surrounded by a floral fairytale in the local church, with their reception held in a Papakata Sperry on the grounds of the family home.

Melissa Beattie photographed every element of the day in the most luminous way and working alongside Lucy Wright¬†Wedding and Events¬†was a complete joy in making sure Georgina and Steve’s vision was delivered perfectly.

Georgina and Steve decided upon a beautiful and fresh colour palette combining White and Ivory with touches of Nude and Blush encorporating pops of Lilac, Lavender and Green.

The blooms we chose were a stunning mix of Roses, Peonies, Clematis, Ranunculus, Hydrangea, Stocks, Astrantia, Double Lisianthus, Delphiniums, Virburnam, Astilbe, Spray Roses, Veronica, Lilac, Sweet Peas, Nigella and textured foliage.

Georgina’s dress was the most stunning design by Sassi Holford. The delicate lace worked wonderfully with her bridal bouquet. The mixture of pale lilac and ivory trailing silk ribbon complimented this to perfection and added to the soft romantic feeling created by the florals.

The sperry was a spectacle of both high bell bottom vase designs and low footed bowls. The entrance of the Sperry boasted a full bustling floral chandelier over the mirrored bar.

The top table was a complete dream to dress. The full floral runner spanning the length of the top table reflected the lower garden hedgerow design below. It looked as though the florals were growing naturally up from the ground in full garden splendour.

As I’m sure you will agree from the images, this wedding was one of our favourites we have created, and we here at LMFD feel it will set a new trend of wild and natural garden hedgerow designs. The only way I can describe walking into the church is what it must feel like to be welcomed behind the walls in ‘The Secret Garden’ novel, simply magical.
