A fabulous spanish orange wedding at Villa Padierna

We loved creating this wedding, the colour scheme presented to us by the bride's hugely creative mother, Cheryl, was a fabulously dramatic spanish orange combined with black and white. We had a few deliberations changing the chair bows from orange to white about two weeks before the wedding as the bride did not do Easyjet!
The breathtaking venue, Villa Padierna, is always a dramatic setting to decorate (and also very hot!)
This was really the last day of the extremely high temperatures here in Spain this summer, we all got burnt yet again! I spend my life trying to undo strap and flip flop marks created whilst I am out working!
We provided a full length aisle runner running from the top of the steps, down the aisle, under the gazebo and up to the chapel, dressed the aisles with white swags topped off with bowls of water filled with white petals on the end of each pew.
Our gazebo and the bridge were decorated with floating white fabrics, elegant asparagus ferns, white flowers and a touch of orange.
The bridal bouquet was a fabulous vintage style spray and the bridesmaids orange bouquets looked stunning against their black dresses.
Fans were created to match the theme with orange ribbons and a black diamante detail, with personalised name tags, orders of services bought by Cheryl, were also finished off with orange ribbons completing the orange theme.
The reception was adorned with our wonderfully tall vases filled with spanish oranges and topped with white and orange floral arrangements, surrounded with jasmine, stephanotis and floating white tealights with orange petals in.
A truly spectacular wedding day, our thanks to Cheryl and her family for involving us.
I am looking forward to my pre booked coffee with Cheryl at the beginning of November to have a photo viewing of the professional shots and to remind ourselves of how hot it was!
