Venue: 40 table event held in the Music Room in the Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh on 30th May 2013

Since the stunning refurbishment of the Assembly Rooms on George Street, we have been lucky enough to supply flowers and table centres for various events – always in The Ballroom. A first for us today was providing arrangements for an event in the fabulous Music Room, The Assembly Rooms largest room which boasts fantastic natural light by way of its floor to ceiling arched windows. The room is steeped in history and since its original opening in 1843 has hosted prestigious events and impresses visitors today with its chandeliers and gold embellishments in the ornate plasterwork. With all this in mind our client wanted to maintain the elegant settings so we decided to use just one type of flower – pure white hydrangea. A touch of softness was added with tealights in glass. Finally we added gold wire inside the vases to the gold from the plasterwork through the table centre designs.

We really enjoyed setting up this event and pass our thanks to the staff at both the Assembly Rooms and the caterers Prestige Scotland who as always, were amazing.

Wedding of Stacey Phibbs & Blair McDonald on 25th May 2013.

Venue: Norton House Hotel

When we first met Stacey we realised it was going to be a lovely, classical wedding with off white/ivory colours but with a very fine touch of modern vintage. The flower of choice to achieve this was the beautiful amnesia rose. The ceremony was held in the hotels Garden Suite where we placed the table centres on mirrored plinths either side of the aisle. These were later placed on the tables for the dinner reception which was also held in the Garden Suite.

Our team had a really great time setting this wedding up for Stacey and Blair and the whole family were an absolute joy to work alongside. With the wedding season in full swing there is nothing more exciting than setting up a beautiful wedding, in lovely surroundings and on a beautiful sunny day. Great day for all!!!

Wedding of Lynsey Fry & Jonny Brown on 26th May 2013.

Venue: The George Hotel

Lynsey & Jonny were such a great couple to discuss and bounce ideas with. The bridesmaids were wearing charcoal grey so we decided the colour theme should be soft, light, and summery, keeping away from the usual off-white/ivory table centre colours. The fantastic Kings Hall in The George really lends itself to colour so in keeping with our brief we went more with shades of soft pink and tones of lime green to produce what we feel was a lovely soft, romantic feel.  Both the wedding ceremony and the dinner reception were held in the Kings Hall so this allowed us to add the table centre pieces for the reception into the ceremony (placed on plinths) providing a lovely floral look throughout the whole day.

Lynsey’s bridal flowers in soft pinks, ivory and with a touch of green complimented her wedding dress.
