Alison And Patrick Kay’s Edinburgh Wedding

Alison And Patrick Kay’s Edinburgh Wedding

Alison and Patrick’s vibrant urban wedding is the stuff lifelong memories are made of, a joyfully eclectic mix of heartfelt emotion, poignancy, humour and revelry; mixing homegrown Scottish tradition with the couple’s own unique style.

The thrum and clatter of the city of Edinburgh, with its hard-to-navigate-in-heels cobblestone streets and the occasional pop of brightly scribbled graffiti make for stunning backdrop with just a touch of edginess. A sense of understated elegance and luxury was introduced through Bloom Room’s timelessly elegant, handcrafted roses in cream and dusky pink with touches of soft greens, beautifully complementing the pared back sophistication of Alison’s wedding gown and the rich tweeds and tartans worn by Patrick and his groomsmen.

For Alison and Patrick, the subtle but luxe tones of the roses they picked out worked in perfect harmony with the spirit of their day. The bride and maid of honour arrived before the impressively grand architecture of Lothian Chambers Registry Office in an an immaculate white vintage Volkswagen Beetle, clutching coordinating bouquets, which were hand-tied with a delicate pink silk ribbon, whilst the groom and other members of the wedding party waited expectantly inside, their lapels accessorised neatly with single stem dusky pink roses.
It was the groom, Patrick, who first got in touch with us, keen to find floristry with that elusive wow factor that wouldn’t break the bank and that would serve as a lasting memento of a day to treasure. After our initial conversation, we delivered two arrangements for the occasion, to use as a cake topper and table decoration. Patrick and Alison were so impressed with the quality of our expertly crafted arrangements that they then asked us to provide bespoke bouquets for the bride and maid of honour, as well as buttonholes for the wedding party and centrepieces for the tables at the reception, which was held at the modern and stylish Edinburgh Capital Hotel in city’s West End.

We love being able to converse with couples in this way, because it means that they know well in advance that they are going to feel completely happy with their flowers on their wedding day, with no unexpected surprises, and it helps us to get to know what a client is looking for. We are able to work and play around with colour and style according to the needs and personality of each couple or event and, unlike many wedding florists working with fresh cut flowers, because all of our beautiful blooms are faux, it also means that we can deliver your handmade flowers well before the occasion, which can really help both with advance planning and with styling venues on the day. It also means that we can deliver your flowers to any wedding destination with no adverse impact on the quality or condition.

Patrick and Alison, like so many of the couples we work with who are planning their wedding day or special event, are thrilled to be able to keep their flowers, which is something that you simply can’t do if you opt for fresh. Patrick tells us, “We hope in the future to be gifting the centrepieces, but Alison wants to keep her bouquet. Thank you again for all you did. We honestly couldn’t have been happier with how the flowers looked. We had a lot of comments on the flowers, and many people failed to notice they were faux flowers.”
Our flowers are crafted from a type of foam, which means that they hold their shape much better than silk and other kinds of fabric flowers, making them look even more realistic and with no wilting towards the end of the day. They also work out to be much more budget friendly than fresh-cut, so it can save you a considerable amount if you choose to work with us and, as they are faux, they are not seasonal, meaning that we are able to supply your choice year-round, regardless of season.

Let us know if you’ve seen something you like on our website, or if you would like us to create a unique, bespoke design for your special occasion. We’re very friendly and we love to play around with ideas in order to help you to create your dream floral arrangements to give your day that extra special touch.
