Saturday saw the first wedding open day arranged by Home Gurrown Caterer and Event Management in conjunction with Holmsted Events, it was organised to get like minded wedding suppliers and experts together for engaged couples to meet with and discuss their plans for their wedding. It allowed us to showcase our work and for couples to see the stunning products and professional services we can offer. It was a successful event, I met some wonderful couples looking forward to their big day and got to meet one of my brides along with some of her family members. This event is planned to be an annual thing. I loved catching up with some awesome suppliers and look forward to working with them soon.
For my stand I took inspiration from the ideas I have for our wedding flowers in July, and the look and feel of some weddings I have already booked for this year. I have been sourcing and collecting copper terrariums along with some other gorgeous geometric bits – together they worked beautifully.
I found some lush mimosa on the auction the week of the event and having never used it before decided to get some to try out. I arranged the mimosa with some english Paperwhites, camomile, craspedia and scabiosa seed heads in a bridal bouquet and massed mimosa as an option for a bridesmaids bouquet, the scent was divine. I decided to pop some colour in with the foliage, they looked right at home on Saturday basking in the sun – I loved the fusion of rustic flowers and contemporary geometric shapes.
I created another look by leaving out the yellow flowers and replaced them with dainty succulents and Earl Grey roses along with some scabiosa seed heads and silvery eucalyptus which would complement a winter wedding.
The foliage table runner was made of eucalyptus, olive and mimosa foliage along with hints of the yellow mimosa flowers, it was finished with a geometric string of fairy lights to add a modern look. Intermittently placed along the length of the table runner a mix of copper terrariums, copper geometric tea-light holders and copper candle sticks, all set on a gorgeous grey linen table runner – borrowed from Hire Love. Earl Grey roses and succulents were nestled in tillandsia inside the terrariums.
I also made a copper arch which was dressed with a corner design of the Earl Grey roses, succulents and Baby Blue eucalyptus, hanging from the other corner were geometric hanging tea-lights. The arch is a versatile prop and is available to hire for your ceremony and wedding providing a gorgeous backdrop and frame, it can be dressed with flowers, foliage or hanging decor such as macrame.
I hope you love my latest designs as much I do – check out the full gallery here
