This beautiful couple got in touch just two months before their wedding date and I’m so pleased that we managed to pull this off in such a short space of time. To be fair, they had been kind of busy saving lives, him as a cardiologist and her as an intensive care nurse so the wedding plans had naturally taken a back seat. On our first meeting, we just clicked and I knew exactly what they wanted just from the one reference photo of a candelabra centrepiece that they showed me for inspiration. A riot of colour that would be symbolic of their two cultures and the union of their marriage.
I chose clashing colours of hot pink, coral, orange, deep red and lime greens and a mix of more traditional wedding flowers (peonies, dahlias and tulips) with something a little more exotic (nutans, amaranthus and umbrella ferns).
The couple were married in the magical grounds of Tournerbury Woods, a 50 acre estate with it’s own private beach. The day was split in three parts, with a traditional Irish ceremony by the waterfront, followed by a Muslim blessing in front of the gazebo followed by the wedding breakfast and dancing in the marquee. These fabulous photos and video of the celebrations were taken by the talented duo Oana and Valentin at Tell Your Story Photography & Film. And they really did tell the love story of Jemma & Sarosh.
Click on the video below to watch a very special film of their big day with heaps more inspiration. Jemma & Sarosh were so very pleased with their wedding flowers that they sent these lovely words the very next day whilst on honeymoon in The Maldives. Thank you for choosing Katherine Bly Flowers guys. It really was my absolute pleasure. K x
