Wedding Flowers

NO!  I did not arrange any flowers for a wedding, but I did attend one that had lovely flowers.  Well, most  of them were lovely.

 The bridesmaids carried bouquets of roses, stock and a bit of delphinium.  I think the bride's bouquet was the same, but did not really see it!  oops!  With deep purple dresses, they were lovely.
The cake was topped with the lavender stock and delphinium.
The cake table also had this pretty little nosegay of the darker stock, with some of the lavender. 

And this was the altar arrangement that also went on a table at the entrance to the reception.
It was lovely - from a distance.  More stock in both lavender and purple, pink and lavender roses, something white (Jane will know what it is.) and lovely blue delphinium... that was well on the way to wilted by the time it arrived at the reception.  Delphinium does not grow well here, and I am sure it was brought in from afar, but it didn't last.  By the end of the reception, it was seriously drooping.  I am probably the only one who noticed.  [You all have done that to me!  I was also the only person taking photos of the flowers, but I did want you to see them.]

A good time was had by all.
