Dan & Cat’s retro movie-inspired wedding

This was a special one for me, as Dan and Cat are lovely friends of ours. I get quite nervous making flowers for people I know (not sure why!), but Cat had a really clear idea of what she wanted style-wise and I loved it all. I’m gonna call it ‘nerd-styling’ and hope they don’t mind that label… I honestly mean it in the most positive way, since I’m a total nerd also 😉

So here’s the lowdown: The vows bit took place at Ringwood Meeting House… it was actually the first wedding ceremony to take place there for decades. The colour scheme for the whole day was inspired by the duck-egg blue interior woodwork of the building, so we went for blue hydrangeas mixed with vintage roses, dahlias and gypsophila. Everything else had a 1950s-ish, ditzy printed vibe, with some awesome comic-book/graphic novel stuff thrown in (see table names), and Dan arrived in a brilliant replica DeLorean from Back to the Future! In fact, the whole thing felt like it could have been in that film (which I LOVED since it’s my all-time fave), even the old-court-housey feel of the ceremony venue.

Here’s some of their stationery and stuff to give you an idea. Not my work, but it’s worth sharing since it’s so blimmin’ beaut:

Anywho, back to the flowers. The bouquets were round, moundy and simple, and Cat’s Flower Girl carried a super-retro white pomander ball…

The reception was held at the bunting-clad Kings Arms Pavilion in Christchurch and the cute table decs in mason jars complemented the printed table cloths so nicely:

So it was all rather lovely really. Dan and Cat, you’re ace and I wish you all the very best for your future together (*waves ‘yay’ flag).
