Bride & Groom:

Wedding of Julie Gibb & Brian Stark on 1st June 2013

Venue: Houstoun House Hotel

We were delighted to be asked to provide the flowers for Julie and Brian’s wedding at Houston House, the design, flower choice and colour theme were perfect for their ‘country garden summer wedding’. Julie wanted to keep away from the glass vase look and bring in a silver feel within the design of her table centres, so we had the perfect solution with the heavy, silver columns with a full, lush arrangement, which we think look fantastic. With the bridesmaids wearing soft pink we wanted to help Julie bring this shade through in the designs without it looking too ‘sweetie’ pink but keep it fresh. The soft pink hydrangea in the bridal flowers complimented the final look.


We had a great time working alongside Julie & Brian, and Julie’s mum. It was such a pleasure and right from the first consultation we were off with loads of ideas bouncing around. We love it when brides get excited about their wedding flowers and we can see it in their faces at their sample meeting. Makes all the effort worthwhile – brilliant!
