A Little Scottish Flare

We always love incorporating culture into our floral designs and Dora Ann’s wedding was a great opportunity to do so. She being of Jewish and Scottish decent, and her groom being Canadian Highland Military Regiment, meant that she chose a colour scheme of navy blue and deep green with accents of cream, to compliment the Blackwatch Tartan the groom and groomsmen would be wearing. She requested ideas as to how to incorporate these colours into her flowers, and we loved what we came up with!

We used blue Scottish Thistle as a jumping off point for the Bridal bouquet and added blue tinted hypercium berries into the mix as well. Set against full cream roses and nestled into green salal leaves, the bridal bouquet was the perfect combination of the tartan colours, as you can see in the replicated ribbon detail on the handle! A matching boutonniere for the groom completed the couples look.

Bridesmaids donned elegant navy blue dresses while the Maid of Honour and Sister of the Bride, Heather (see her wedding here) was radiant in her Emerald Green dress. All the maids carried simple bouquets of ivory hydrangea, also tied with tartan ribbon.

The Chuppah, was dressed with a cloth that was a family heirloom, and we created two pieces for the corners to tie in the blue and green scheme. Hydrangea, and ivory roses were the base for the blue thistle, berries and dendrobium orchids surrounded by a boarder of greens.

DA absolutely loved the simplicity of submerged centerpieces, so we created a set of three multilevel glass cylinder vases filled with white dendrobium orchids. The result was simple, sleek and very elegant.

We loved creating this very culturally diverse wedding design and using a colour scheme that was so unique and meaningful at the same time. Congratulations to DA and her husband Rob on their marriage and best wishes for a long and happy life together!
