Mansfield Traquair - Part Two

We have been showing you bits and pieces of this wedding for some time now on Twitter, Facebook and more recently our Planet Flowers blog! There were just so many killer details with this wedding. It was stylish, authentic, glamorous, unique, stunning, modern, elegant, beautiful, flawless and memorable – to be honest we have ran out of adjectives to describe it! While Jackie and Alan from Rankine Photography were busy taking shots of the ceremony, Niels from Blue Sky Photography popped by to take detailed shots of the flowers just for us (how spoilt are we?!) We must apologise now for the length of this post. It was just too difficult to choose which images to use!

Let's start at the drinks reception. Jane decided to use an escort table rather than a table plan - so to enhance the feature we designed a flower chandelier to hang above the table to add a bit of glamour to the marquee. We used hundreds of crystals throughout the hanging orchids to catch the light and add a bit of twinkle!

It was important to keep the floral décor in the drinks reception clean and simple. We wanted to have an amazing "wow" factor in the main reception area, so everything was kept minimal in the drinks marquee.

As Niel's from Blue Sky Photography captured images hours before the couple arrived, some aspects of the set-up were not quite finished - for example the lighting. This was great for us looking back through his photographs as it reminds us how important lighting is! Once all the candles are lit and the team at Tower Productions have worked their magic, the room comes to life - bringing warmth and a real ambience to the room.

Hydrangea rings, Orchid napkin décor with crystal detail and candles all finished the guest tables perfectly. Everything was accessorised beautifully by the gorgeous stationary from Knotty Stationary. The candy station was amazing, Knotty Stationary did a fabulous job of giving all the sweets and treats quirky names - it was so adorable!

We hope you enjoyed seeing the highlights of this wedding. We would like to give a huge shout out to Niels and Alie from Blue Sky Photography for capturing all these little pieces of perfection especially for us! You guys blew us away with your kindness and of course talent - Thank you so much! Jane and Des sent us the sweetest note of thanks shortly after the wedding.

"We are back! Just wanted to drop you a wee mail to say hello! ...and also to thank you so so soooo much again for all of your help with everything in the run up to the wedding. I really appreciated it and you honestly made the planning very fun and exciting. The flowers were totally out of this world, Des and I were both completely and utterly blown away with how the place looked. It was honestly like a fairytale dream and was exactly how I had pictured it in my head! Your attention to detail was incredible from the crystal in the flower girls wand which matched the place settings, to matching the colour of the bridesmaids pomanders to their dresses, the diamond in my bouquet to match my dress. Everything was just incredible and quite breathtaking! I couldn't get over how amazing the church looked when I first walked in.. just beautiful. So many people have said to me how fantastic the flowers were, you really did such a good job, I just don't know how you do it! One of the guests asked me later on in the night if there was any candles left in the whole of Edinburgh, which made me laugh!! Des and I enjoyed every single second of the day, it was so so so much fun.. it all seemed to whiz by in a flash! Please pass on our thanks and appreciation to all of the team."
