Ian and Amanda Morait – Saturday 5th September 2015
Ceremony venue: Roman Baths
Reception venue: Pump Rooms, Bath
It’s always wonderful to see the official photographs from brides and grooms who have tied the knot just months before they pop up in my inbox and I have to say, it was extra special to see these photographs taken by the amazing Anna and Elaine of Amanda and Ian’s wedding day last Autumn.
Amanda and Ian fell in love with Bath when they visited for a long weekend 18 months before their wedding and decided that it was the perfect city that they wished to get married in and hold their super stylish city wedding!
The best bit about creating bespoke wedding flowers is meeting with lots of different brides and grooms who have such different visions and ideas for their wedding day – I can certainly say that Amanda had some wonderful ideas of exactly how she wanted her wedding day to look and the flowers that she wanted. After many emails and consultations, a walk around the wonderful venue they chose to hold their ceremony in (The Roman Baths) followed by a stroll through The Pump Rooms, where they chose to hold their reception, I was able to gather up a good understanding of exactly how Amanda wanted her wedding to be.
Amanda had mentioned that she loved the Indian culture, colours and was hoping to achieve something similar in their wedding day. The couple opted to have oranges, corals, peaches and creams for flowers, to incorporate something slightly unusual as opposed to just Roses. Taking in to account the time of year and the flowers available that would be of their best quality, the flowers that made up Mr and Mr’s Morait’s wedding day were Calla Lily, Rose, Dahlia and Hydrangea.
I always advise brides and grooms before meeting up for a consultation to have had a look through photos of flowers/designs/colours that they liked and to bring any ideas along to the consultation to get a clear understand of the sort of thing initially that they would both like. For the table decorations Amanda wanted something really unusual and eye catching that would be spotted immediately as their guests stepped foot in to the beautiful Pump Rooms. The bride to be had seen an image on Pinterest of a large artificial tree with a wreath of flowers around the base. From this, the final decision was to go for gold trees with a wreath of orange, coral, green and cream flowers around the base with glass bubble tealight holders hanging from the branches above. The tables looked amazing and the tealights made the venue look so romantic and magical throughout the evening! Certainly something a little different to the usual wedding table flowers but it looked incredible and worked really well with the theme they were hoping to acheive.
Amanda and Ian had put so much detail in to their wedding to ensure that the day was exactly as they had both anticipated throughout the 18 months of planning. The hard work and countless hours certainly paid off!!
The cake was designed by Amanda and made in London and WOW, what an amazing and truly unique wedding cake!! Just looking at the design, you can see the hard work and how much time had been spent on the cake to make it just perfect. It looked far too good to cut!
Amanda chose to have her wedding dress made in London as she required it to be very particular and knew exactly what she wanted. It’s so lovely to see a bride going with her own style and choosing something that she truly adored and felt amazing in! Didn’t she look fabulous?! To go with the fabulous wedding dress, the bride wore beautiful Charlotte Olympia heels paired with a skin-toned embellished evening gown for the ceremony held at sunset.
The bride and groom both have a love for Moet Champagne and somehow wanted to incorporate this in to their wedding day.. After a bit of thinking how this could be done (as well as the obvious of having masses of bottles at the wedding to indulge on!) Amanda and myself came up with the idea of including the bottle tops of the champagne in to the bouquet. Looking through the photos now, we think it looked great and was something slightly unusual and quirky!!
