12 Jul House for an Art Lover – purple and white wedding venue flowers
House for an Art Lover is a stunning venue steeped in history and based on designs by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. It’s dark timber and art deco features offer an elegant setting for wedding parties in their dresses, kilts, suits and finery. Over the years I have enjoyed visiting the House many times and dressed its rooms for wedding celebrations as well as private dinners and corporate events.
When creating wedding flowers the primary focus is always on the style of the bridal party and the colour theme but it’s important to also consider the venue. The wedding arches, floral garlands, table decorations and altar vases should enhance the room rather than crowd it and colour, size and volume of floral arrangements need to be taken into consideration.
The image above is of one of two tall ceremony vases created using bells of Ireland (the tall green flowers) white gladioli, deep purple stocks (the scent is gorgeous) purple allium, white hydrangea and my personal favourite, the vanda orchid in a deep purple hue. Eucalyptus and soft ruscus foliage were added to complete the arrangement.
The top table floral arrangement continues the theme using many of the same flowers in shades of purples and creams with the addition of lilac lissianthus, mauve and white cala lillies and viburnum.
Smaller table displays of lilac lissianthus , soft yellow dahlia, soft pink hydrangea, viburnum and eucalyptus complement the elegance of the room and are of a height that guests can easily make eye contact whilst tearing up at the speeches and chatting across the table whilst enjoying their wedding breakfast.
For more wedding flower inspiration take a look at my bridal bouquets, wedding venue flowers, buttonholes and corsages. I love all kinds of weddings from large family knees ups to small intimate celebrations so do get in touch for a chat about your own wedding flowers. I personally look after every part of your wedding, from initial conversation through to setting up the flowers on the day.
