Vanessa put a lot of time and effort into the décor at the wedding reception. As a florist, she was able to create wedding centrepieces that matched her vision perfectly. As the bride is originally from New Zealand, she loves nature and wanted that reflected in the wedding theme.
Each centrepiece at Derek and Vanessa’s wedding was different, but used the same colour palette for a sense of unity. The table names reflected the design on each table, including ‘Garden Party’, ‘Aviary’ and ‘Seaside’.
The creative bride also made all of the favours for her guests, including charm necklaces for the women and cufflinks for the men. As Derek loves hot sauce, they also made up bottles of ‘Derek’s Hot Sauce’, placed in black paper bags with the guests’ names written on in chalk. These unique favour bags doubled up as place cards.
