The Bride and The Bridesmaids

So this was a wedding to remember! We really put our mark down at Christchurch Harbour Hotel for the wedding of Emily and Elliott. We first met Emily back in March 2017, she knew exactly what she wanted . . . the list was endless! From indoor lights dressed with foliage to an outside tree covered in Streamers and Drapes!Classic and Elegant was also the look that she wanted. All Ivories, Creams and Foliage Greens.

The Ceremony Room was dressed to impress and to give everyone that WOW factor as soon as they walked into the room. This was certainly achieved in so many ways!

The chairs were covered and provided by Beautifully Seated. They were completed with a double sash of Champagne Taffeta with a Lace overlay – the finishing touch though was the sparkle broach.

Venue Dressing

Trails of Ivy to create a more elegant look at Christchurch Harbour Hotel. The four main lights, were dressed with trails of Ivy and Ferns. This changed the room completely! It was just stunning!

The Aisle itself was presented with an Ivory Carpet Runner (available for HIRE), Rose Petals, and Bay Trees (provided by the Bride).

Ivory Carpet available to Hire

Her Ceremony Table was a waterfall of Ivy, mixed in with Silver Lanterns and an arrangement of flowers. It really did set the scene! We also provided Emily with 4 x Ivory Plinths, allowing her to make use of her table centres for the Ceremony. After the Ceremony, the Lanterns were moved outside on the steps (which went perfect for those night time pictures!)


Emily’s 4 Bridesmaids and 1 Little Bridesmaids wore  simple and elegant cream dresses which complimented the Bridal dress just perfectly. Emily’s dress was light and floaty which followed her theme of classic elegance. She decided that she wanted a Shower Bouquet of Roses, trailing foliage’s and other flowers that she felt would work. All she kept saying to me was “big – you know me!”

Floral Head pieces

Beautiful and cute! Ideal for both the Bride and her maids!


Now what made is all so cute is that she had a stunning little Bridesmaid. Emily wanted this Bridesmaid to also feel like the Bride – Emily insisted that this little girl was to carry a smaller version to the Bridal Bouquet and wear a stunning Floral Halo Crown. As you can see from the pictures – she looked adorable!
