A Midsummer Nights Dream
Last Summer, we were thrilled to work alongside our talented friend, Harriet Hill, director of Cheshire Cat Events, on the whimsical wedding of Jamie and Richard, held at the historic Manchester Town Hall. Styled with a glorious mid-summers night theme, Manchester Town Hall was brought to life with colourful, opulent blooms and verdant trees designed to fill the central hall. From the very first meeting, our grooms had a clear vision for their day, which we were thrilled to help bring to life with a vibrant, wild colour palette.
As we often do with some of our larger weddings and events, the table centres were split evenly amongst low summer bowls filled with perfectly open pink peonies, orangey yellow sunflowers that add a brightness to the design and perfectly peach roses that created a softness, the blue hue brought in from the full delicate hydrangea blooms adds interest and luxury, all complimented and brought together creatively with a base of textured foliage and seasonal florals. Accordingly, we sourced incredible 3m tall birch trees adorned with hanging t-light globes adding light and atmosphere, installed on tables surrounded by fresh blooms and textured foliage, and finally our 2m tall golden candelabra were festooned with verdant foliage of various shades and textures, all brought together with a base of seasonal blooms adding a summer scent to the air.
For the bridal party, we created a beautiful collection of flower crowns, corsages and buttonholes, all designed in complimentary colours, featuring a riot of pink, orange, purple, yellow, red, and blue, all combined with hints of verdant foliage to compliment. Even the statues that adorn the entrance to Manchester Town Hall weren't forgotten, with foliage garlands created for each of the gentlemen ...
As the evening continued the candle light from perfectly placed mixed glass t-lights and candelabra centre pieces created a romantic atmosphere, perfect for the first dance on the dance floor that was edged with full leaf silver birch trees giving a luscious, green finish to the venue.
