Bold and Jewelled Tones for Ainsley & Jack's winter wedding
When I first met Ainsley I liked her straight away - she had a very clear idea of what she wanted and yet was also respectful of my creative and professional ability as a wedding florist. As such she gave me clear parameters but then within these allowed me creative freedom - and this is when florists do their best! I have sadly done several weddings where brides were overly prescriptive and as I result I struggled, found it stifling and am not particularly proud of that work.
I think Ainsley understood all this being a successful artist in her own right. She is the most amazing singer with outstanding talent. It's not every day you get to listen to your bride sing whilst doing their wedding flowers.
The result of Ainsley's clear vision whilst allowing her suppliers to work their magic created absolute wedding gold for her winter wedding at Glasgow University Chapel and then for the reception at Kelvingrove Art Gallery.
Ainsley spoke of gold and rich luxe tones with jewelled colours, autumn and winter fruits (which we scattered in and around the gold bowls on the reception tables) but also a wild and natural vibe (which was created through the choice of some more whimsical flower types and a 6 metre long flower meadow at the chapel).
We also reused all of the ceremony elements for the reception, creating feature pieces at key entrances.
