Burgundy with a touch of pink brings out the classy extravagance Gillian envisioned for her wedding, as inspired by the dinner parties of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby.

Charismatic and easy going, the couple reached out to us through wedding platform Bridestory a year prior to their wedding. Having more luxury of time, we were able to better develop the floral concept they were looking for. 

Gillian expressed her desire for a jazz themed wedding following after The Great Gatsby, and her fondness for rustic colours. In response, we designed a colour palette of navy, berry, and antique gold.

The flowers we selected for her bouquet included King Protea pink, burgundy Peonies, red Roses, dark brown Eustomas, Astilbe. For a dash of colour, we also added in dark red Cosmos, blue Thistle, and Holland Menta Rose for an Earl Grey tone.

We were also tasked with coming up with the table stands and table arrangements for her wedding, as well as providing the small potted succulents for her guests.

Having to design for up to 11 table stands and arrangements was not an easy feat, but we felt our efforts paid off when we saw how the final product recreated the atmosphere of jazzy elegance and luxury Gillian described for us. A night of wonder and breathtaking beauty, we are glad to have assisted the couple realising their dream wedding.
