Rebecca and Ben

When Rebecca mentioned she was just finishing up her PhD in English Literature, it was immediately obvious to me that books should be a major theme of her and Ben's wedding. Rebecca's bridesmaids were all going to wear different dresses in peacock shades and so for the flowers we settled on jewel tones of eggplant and mauve with a little peach for warmth to contrast the blues, greens and golds of the dresses.

The centerpieces were on mahogany pedestals with street signs crafted by the bride used instead of table numbers. Alternating tables were styled with lace runners and vintage books collected by the bride and were decorated with bud vases and candles.Instead of a traditional guest book, we encouraged guests to write wishes to the bride and groom on pages of a vintage book which we styled with flowers in wooden bowls, a birdcage and an antique typewriter.
