I have been so lucky to work with some amazing and unique wedding suppliers in my career and Revelry Events are no exception. Holly and Rhiannon are a dream wedding-planning duo and all their events sparkle. Therefore, when Shaina and Lee asked for bright and bold, colour-blocked florals with impact for their special day they got in contact with me.
I was delighted with such a wonderful brief however Shaina wanted none of the usual colourful flower choices such as dahlias and roses, saying they were too normal. So, I spent hours researching colourful exotic wedding flowers we could use to bring the couple’s tropical wedding floral dreams to life. Keep reading to see Shaina and Lee’s breathtaking tropical wedding blooms.
Shaina and Lee’s ceremony was to be held in Sudeley Castle’s exquisite chapel, nestled among the castle’s historic grounds it is the perfect romantic space for a wedding ceremony. The couple were wed under a Chuppah supplied by the amazing Happy Chuppah People, adding a soft edge to the chapel’s traditionally ornate dark wooden backdrop. However, I don’t think anyone could have expected how we were about to transform this structure. Using a base of dyed gypsophila in yellow, green, purple, orange, pink, and blue I created a beautiful fluffy cloud-like colourful base, blocking each colour so it stood out and didn’t become a rainbow. Then I added dried and colourful elements in contrasting colours jutting out of the Chuppah at all angles to add texture and interest. This made the design bold, edgy, and eye-catching. Like an edgy, colourful floral installment had landed from space.
THE BRIDAL BOUQUET
For Shaina’s bridal bouquet, I wanted to make something that would have as much impact as her glorious surroundings. I wanted the bridal bouquet to reflect how joyful and unique Shaina and Lee are as a couple and to do justice to their wonderful vision had been entrusted with. I started with some statement anthuriums in fuchsia pink and holographic shimmery tones, before pairing it with electric blue, bright yellow pin cushions, and celosia in orange and purple painted ruscus and vibrant green flowers.
To make sure Lee matched his vibrant exotic bridal bouquet. I opted to make the buttonholes just as colourful and unique. I used dyed elements such as bunny tales, in baby pink, magenta, yellow, and orange. As a Liverpool fan Lee and all his groomsman’s buttonholes also had a wooden liver bird attached, yet another quirky touch showing a couple being unapologetically them on their big day, I loved it!
For each of Shaina and Lee’s table centrepiece’s, we opted for modern centrepieces, ikebana style. Each low concrete receptacle had bright and exotic blooms erupting out of it, like an explosion of rainbow flowers growing out of the base. This was particularly impactful when placed on their teal blue tablecloths. The perfect way to showcase their exotic flower varieties.
WEDDING BREAKFAST INSTALLATION
For the wedding breakfast in Sudeley Castle’s orangery, the tall ceilings with increasable intricate steel beams were like a piece of art themselves. We decided to use this height and create three one-of-a-kind hanging floral wedding installations. Using suspended spheres and the same principles of colour blocking diagonally across the space I created three – symmetric unusual floral masterpieces.
Thank you so much to Shaina and Lee for trusting me with your colourful exotic wedding flowers. I was determined to make sure their bright and bold tropical wedding flower design was as awe-inspiring as it was in my proposal, and I am happy to say it did not disappoint. If you want to chat about colourful wedding flower arrangements or exotic colour-blocked floral installations for your wedding, get in touch. I feel like this design would look fantastic in some of the south west wedding venues we are getting enquiries for such as Berwick Lodge, Kin House, Euridge Manor, St Audries Park and Sezincote House.
