colour & light: one gorgeous wedding

I'm back this week to share photos of a gorgeous wedding we went to yesterday. The table settings, flowers and candles were absolutely beautiful. Set in an old barn with paper lanterns - it was magical. See for yourself...

My gorgeous friend B (the bride) arranged the flowers and collected all of the jars herself. It was an explosion of purples (her favourite colour), white, cream, red, pink, yellow and lilac. Together with the candles it looked amazing!

I love this type of floral table arrangements at weddings. I had only ever seen this done in magazines or blogs at American weddings. It's not cookie-cutter but shows real thought has gone into it - the picking of the flowers, the many months spent sourcing jars and the time spent arranging the flowers.

We were lucky enough to take some jars and flowers home. I'm now inspired to do this at home or for a fancy-pants dinner party.

p.s These photos were taken with my iphone using the Hipstamatic app!
