We are delighted to see the current edition (winter 2010) of the Real Life Weddings magazine, a sister title to the Scottish Wedding Directory, is carrying the wedding story of Vikki Larkin and Ted Campbell.
Roseparks supplied the wedding flowers for Vikki and Ted at their wedding back on 20th March 2010 and their original article can be viewed direct from this link.
Vikki and Ted very kindly gave the following comments to the magazine.
“Lianne from Roseparks was fab to work with. She seems to get genuinely excited about your wedding, which is lovely. And she even tied my bouquet with lace and pearl pins, which was a really thoughtful touch. When I arrived [..at the venue] on the day I couldn’t believe the number of flowers there were.“

The reception was held in the Dining Room. The guest tables were decorated with elegant glass candlestands sitting on a mirror with tea lights and baby candles. The top table had several single glass candlestands with tealights and little pots of flowers running down the table.

The tables all looked wonderful with all the candles for our wedding breakfast.
Thank you, your service was exceptional throughout all the planning.”

Catriona and Cameron chose the sumptuous rooms of the Royal College of Physicians for their wedding venue.
Catriona held a hand tie of all white thistles and heather. Catriona’s bridesmaids held similar hand ties of all blue thistles and heather.
The ceremony was held in The Library and the dinner reception in the Great hall. The table centres consisted of low glass bowl arrangement of burnt orange gerberas, lime green hypericum and reddy hydrangea with greenery.
“I had not anticipated being so busy after the wedding and had meant to be in touch before now to say many thanks from us all to you and your team for the lovely flowers for Catriona and Cameron’s wedding on the 16th October at RCPE. We have enjoyed viewing the flowers on your website!
The bouquets were beautiful and complemented the dress colours perfectly – so many guests commented on how unusual they were. The bride and bridesmaids loved them and I am pleased to report they carried them correctly, at least when I was around! The buttonholes went so well with every kilt outfit.
The New Library was beautifully set up and we are so pleased we went with your suggestions. My uncle especially was charmed by the candles in the hearths and they did indeed add to the magic. The small bowls of flowers were perfect as when everyone was in place, there was not room for anything large!
The flowers in the Great Hall were just what was wanted – something to break the expanse of white tablecloth without detracting from the impact of the hall itself. Again we were pleased to have gone with your colour suggestions to complement the hall rather than the bridesmaids dress colour.
Once again many thanks to one and all at Roseparks for adding to our wonderful day.”

Emma and Robert chose the elegant George Hotel, in the heart of the city centre for their wedding venue.The wedding ceremony and reception were in The Kings Hall.
Emma held a compact hand tie of blue thistle, blue pacific roses, purple eustoma and eucalyptus. Emma’s bridesmaid carried a similar but smaller version.
The table centres were used for the wedding ceremony positioned in between the pillars of The Kings Hall. Hurricane vases and little pots of flowers and tealights added to the look. The table centres were later position on the tables for the dinner reception.
“Just wanted to drop you a note to say a MASSIVE thank you for supplying our flowers for our wedding last Friday. We loved them! The room looked fantastic and it really had a great balance between vintage/romantic softness with a modern twist with the tall vases. Just proved that you don’t have to spend a fortune either to get a great look.
We also loved our bouquets and the mums where thrilled with theirs. The use of the candle sticks in the reception area also worked really well, lighting that area up fantastically!
We would definitely recommend you to friends who need a first class florist!
Emma & Robert.
