When Stephanie and David came to visit us at the shop, they were very easy going, nice, and down to earth. This was reflected in the style of flowers Stephanie wanted for their wedding. She wanted meadow style flowers in pastel colours; peaches, creams, pinks and whites. She was aiming for an elegant girly array of simple and classic flowers.
The venue was they choose was Fallon and Byrne; perfect for real Dublin city vibe. It gave an urban chic feel to the day. We composed the bride’s bouquet with coral ranunculus, pale pink spray roses, and white lisianthus. The tonal choices gave a soft feel to the bouquet, allowing the beauty of the bride to speak for itself. They came together to create a polished, and graceful arrangement that suited Stephanie and Davids personalities down to the ground.
The Groom and best man buttonholes were very natural and vintage looking with white wax flower and leaves of eucalyptus. The classic combination matched their suits while tying them into the theme. They matched Stephanie’s bouquet perfectly while maintaining a unique vibe.
For the venue, we created unique table arrangements that were very original and rustic. Fallon and Byrne went above and beyond to facilitate our decorating. Together with Stephanie and David, we chose a mixture of flowers matching bride’s bouquet which were then presented in glass jars on each table. The glass jars tied the rosy, elegant flowers with the homely feel of the venue. The pastel colours complimented the simpler feel of the venue’s décor, creating that classic tension between feminine and masculine spaces. The end product was a beautiful sight.
Later I found out, via social media, that Stephanie and David are happy owners of a miniature, shorthair dachshund, Milo. This brought me back to childhood memories as I had a couple of dachshunds when I was a kid. From then on, Stephanie and David weren't allowed to enter the shop for the consultations without Milo. Seeing the three of them made my day. Milo helped us find inspiration for the arrangements and made sure we didn’t get too stressed out on the longer days.
The colourful Dublin City and the meadow-esque style of flowers blended together very well leaving an original overall picture. The delicate flower choice contrasted stunningly with the urban choice of venue. The little finishing touches on the groomsmen’s buttonholes made all the difference, tying the day together. Stephanie and David made our job easy as they knew what they wanted but were happy to take advice from us, the experts.
