A beautiful chapel right next to the River Wye in Glasbury was the setting for Hattie and Chaz’s beautiful winter wedding. I met up with Hattie and her lovely mum for a chat and coffee at the lovely Riverside Cafe with a few sample bouquets to try and get a real feel for what Hattie wanted. Hattie’s brief was deep reds, blush pink and whites with hints of metallic. She also loved lots of greenery, a girl after my own heart!
Based on Hattie’s loves, I designed her bouquet to include pink ice protea, coco white hypericum, deep red chrysanthemums, white eryngium, deep red anigozanthus, white ranunculus, white waxflower and seeded eucalyptus and Cinerea Eucalyptus. Lots of elements included but it was important to not make the bouquet too big so as not to dwarf poor Hattie!
The bridesmaids were wearing varying dresses in awesome metallic tones, so they had smaller simplified versions of Hattie’s bouquet, just a protea, white hypericum, olive leaf, eucalyptus and wax flower.
In addition to this Hattie and her maids all had beautiful hair pieces to suit their chosen hairstyle. Hatties had eucalyptus, olive leaf and waxflower to incorporate into a half up half down design. The bridesmaids had small hairpieces just using sprigs of oliveleaf and eucalyptus.
The groom and his men had very cool button holes, white hypericum berries, eucalyptus and olive leaf. Which they all wore with style, and perfectly complimented the brides style.
Then on to the chapel! This chapel is amazing, it has been converted into ‘The Bunk House’. The downstairs area had the old wooden altar and long windows, clean crisp walls and lots of room for guests. It is all so well put together and a wonderful place for large groups to come and stay, whilst using the river for canoeing and kayaking. The place just oozes character.
Hattie wanted lots of mixed foliage’s to adorn the chapel area, including a floating arch suspended on the back wall! It was so much fun to do and looked great! With flickering candles and strategically placed foliage along the top of the altar, it fitted in with Hatties vision perfectly.
