candelabra at Penshurst Place
It’s important to spend time choosing the right flowers for your wedding day – not only choice & colours for the flowers, but also the format.
We made these candelabra displays for a wedding at the stunning Baron’s Hall at Penshurst Place in Kent at the weekend. The ceiling is high, & the hall is sparsely, but beautifully decorated. The 4ft high candelabra held their own, & looked increasingly more beautiful as night fell, & the candlelight became more prominent.
We used white clematis, jasmine, roses, phalaenopsis orchids, sweet william, berried ivy, trailing ivy & salal.
Make sure your florist visits the venue before the event. They can advise on which colours not only suit the venue, but also check the natural light, & advise accordingly.
If you have a budget to work with, tell the florist, & they will advise on how best to use the money. Most florists have a wealth of experience you can draw upon.
