The Flowers and décor

A rustic sophisticated look was the wedding theme. The countryside was the leitmotif of this intense day.  Hues of greens, greys and pastel pinks were the colors of the wedding scheme. A unique wild mixture of different types of roses, lisianthus astilbe and eucalyptus made the bridal bouquet. For the church, part of an old country small abbey, belonging to Franciscan monks, Ciara opted for a simple but classy décor. A main piece for the altar, left at the church after the ceremony, as a gift for the Holy Virgin and simple pews’ decoration.
