13.02.16 | Mr & Mrs Sewell | Seamill Hydro

On Saturday 13th February I had my first wedding as Paperwhite Floral Design and WOW what a wedding it was! I met with Charlene around my opening time in July last year and she was very relaxed.

Charlene gave me her colour scheme and the theme of her wedding and then left it up to me to provide inspiration…. I loved this!!! Her Bridal party were all in Ivory and the men were in blue tweed kilts, so there was plenty to work with to create a rustic, glam themed dream wedding.


For Charlene’s bouquet I used these stunning scented garden roses called O’hara alongside jana spray roses, ranunculus, eryngium, waxflower, scabiossa, veronica, succulent heads and finished off with soft grey eucalyptus varieties. I adored making this bouquet!


Charlene’s bridesmaid and junior bridesmaid had smaller versions of her bouquet and waxflower floral crowns (which were very cool!). I liked the fact that they were all different but also complemented each other perfectly.


When I arrived at Seamill Hydro it was a glorious crisp morning with the sun shining and snow lying on the hills of Arran. I set up the ceremony with large floral arrangements either side of the patio doors, low arrangements on the fire places and I lined the aisle with wooden stumps and candles with rose petals to add a bit of romance.


For the guest tables we went tall as Charlene wanted the wow factor and to fill the room. I used a tall hour glass shaped vase with large arrangements of hydrangea ,roses, stock, lisianthus, and mixed foliages to loosen the shape. The vases were placed in the centre of each guest table and I surrounded them with silver mercury glass votives, wooden log slices, moss table numbers and succulents. This added a real natural feel to the tables and offering more colour and textures.


I placed loose single blooms in clusters on this rustic styled cake to add a pop of colour. I loved working on this wedding and I am so glad Charlene and Richie let me be apart of their special day. I look forward to working back at Seamill Hydro next year on another wedding.
