My best friend’s wedding – part II

June 24, 2013


I am finally done with the editing of all the pics from the wedding. There are so many photos, so I will have to split them up into two posts. I already blogged about the wedding here and here.
The ceremony took place in a beautiful, old church in Køge, where the groom grew up. Afterwards the party was held at a village hall in a small town on the countryside overlooking fields and the old village church. Such a dreamy scenario and also lovely to think of, that weddings have been celebrated here for generations.
There was a total of 64 guests. I know – I wrote every one of the place cards by hand.
The tables were set up in two long lines. We chose a simple setting with white table cloths, white napkins and white china to keep the focus on the decorations. The tables were decorated with lots of candles and tea lights – all in even glass holders and lots and lots of peonies, also in glass vases in different sizes.
We rolled up the napkins and tied them with a ribbon in soft pink. The table cards was simple, white ones without any fuss. I wrote alle the names in my best impression of calligraphy. At every place setting was a menu in charcoal grey decorated with the monogram and a little white bow.
All the window sills were decorated with lots of peonies, lots of candles and tea lights and lots of honeycomb balls – we had a total of 70 balls in white, grey, soft pink and a few in hot pink in three different sizes.
The wedding bouquet and the bridesmaid’s bouquet were made of peonies to match the theme – although these were still in bud whereas all the ones we used for decorations were in full bloom.
More to come – stay tuned..

      Thank you Kate. So nice of you to say. I love the simplicity of the many candles and the peonies – and the honeycombs just added a fun and festive touch.
