Rodeo Classic Red Hydrangea and Pure white Hydrangea Flowers
Thursday 1st of August 2013
Corbally Church, Tramore, Co. Waterford. &
Faithlegg House Hotel.
Congratulations to Lindsay & Kenny !!
As the main flower for all her wedding day the bride choose the Hydrangea. A perfect choice as her wedding in August was right in the season for Hydrangea’s.
She went for the pure white Hydrangea and the “Rodeo Classic” red Hydrangea that perfectly matched the colour of her brides maids dresses.
In the bridal bouquet we used both the white and red Hydrangea flowers as well as delicately scented white Freesia flowers, white Astrantia with some white dubble flower Lisyanthus (Eustoma) flowers. Finished with a soft white satin ribbon.
For the Brides maids we kept it to all white flowers. Again using the stunning pure white Hydrangea with freesia and Astrantia flowers.
In Corbally Church in the beautiful town of Tramore in County Waterford the Hydrangea once again was the main flower used. This stunning church is a favorite of the florists at Lamber de Bie Flowers as it is a stunning Church that lends itself very well to be decorated for a wedding. With only a 15 minutues drive from Waterford City placed on the stunning Coastline of Waterford it is a choice for many brides for their wedding.
From the Church it was less than 30 minutes drive to the reception in Faithlegg House Hotel. Their stunning and bright Wedding Room was decorated with bird cage candle holders and more of the magnificent Hydrangea flowers.
It was, once again, a plasure and Honour to look after the flowers for today’s brides wedding day.
These photos are from the wedding from a beautiful bride that decided to have her wedding in Waterford Castle and as so many brides getting married in the Castle, chooses Lamber de Bie Flowers to look after the flowers for her big day.
We looked after the flowers for the bride and brides maidsbouquet, both contained a selection of pink, purple and lilac flowers such as the Blue Curiosa rose, pink ranuncules, blue hyacinths and lilac Sweat Pea. It’s somewhere between Spring and Summer. The Anemone and Ranunculus tell me it’s still kind of Spring and the Sweat Pea and Veronica are reaching out to the Summer.
The Groom and the Best Man wore buttonholes of lilac Sweat Pea flowers. In the beautiful Crook Church in Passage East, Co. Waterford we used lilac Calla Lilies, Hydrangeas and a selection of flowers in pinks and purple.
Back at the castle after crossing the river by the castle’s own ferry the guests were welcomed by music by a sting quartet at the entrance of the Castle decorated with urns filled with pink and lilac flowers while the sun was shining across the island of Waterford castle.
For the wedding dinner in the castle we used locally producedhandmade candles in different tones of pinks and a selection offresh flowers in pinks, purples and lilac.

Your wedding day really is one of the most important days of your life. Making everything perfect for this day is a daunting task. Finding the correct venue, selecting the perfect wedding dress, picking the most beautiful invitations, and choosing wedding flowers, are just some of the things you have to contend with.
Let’s see if we can’t make these tasks simpler. Today we will go over everything involved in getting the right flowers for your wedding. Finding the perfect flowers starts long before your wedding day. Here are some things you should consider beforehand.
What colors are you using in the wedding? This is a very important factor affecting the whole wedding. Flowers are available in almost every color these days. You wouldn’t want to fall in love with a certain flower and then find that it doesn’t work with your color scheme at all.
Decide if you want sophisticated or simple flowers. Roses are the flower of choice for traditional wedding services. If you want something different, a little more modern, go with orchids or tulips.
The budget is a big consideration when choosing wedding flowers. Flowers such as carnations are less expensive than roses, and roses cost less than orchids. Know your budget before going to the florist to pick the flowers. If your flower budget is small, you re better of with a few large displays than a lot of small ones. For the venue you can place one very large floral display in the centre of the room that can be admired by everyone, and decorate the individual tables with just some rose petals in the colour of your wedding and some tea-lights.
How many people in your wedding party need flowers? Make sure you know the number of attendants before getting flowers for your wedding. Your wedding bouquet is the most important. Some brides have one bouquet that they keep and another to throw at the reception, so decide if this is something you wish to do. All of the bridesmaids need flowers, as does the maid of honor. The flower girl if you have one and the Mother of the bride will need flowers. You’ll also want boutonnières for the groom and his attendants.
Another thing to remember when choosing wedding flowers is decorating the church and reception hall. Some places flowers are used in the church are at the altar, on the end of pews, and the front door. If you want to go all out, throwing rose petals along the isle is nice. For the reception hall, you’ll need centerpieces for each table, a larger centerpiece for the bride and grooms table, and flowers around the wedding cake. Remember to take the colors used on your wedding cake into account when picking flowers. You wouldn’t want anything to clash.
As you can see, there are quite a few things to consider when choosing wedding flowers. You want the wedding to be beautiful, and picking the perfect flowers will go a long way in achieving this goal. A little organization and planning is all it takes to have the perfect wedding.

Spending almost every sunday in January & February at wedding fairs in different hotels in the South-East in Ireland may result in aching feet and a sore throat, but it certainly is a fantastic way of getting up to speed with current wedding trends, as Lamber de Bie (Lamber de Bie Flowers) found out.
The main season for all the wedding fairs in the South-East of Ireland is always in the first two months of the year. Lamber and his team are attending wedding fairs in both Waterford and Kilkenny almost every Sunday during this time. Some of the hotels that Lamber de Bie Flowers were attending are; The Newpark Hotel, Kilkenny, Waterford Castle Hotel, Waterford, Langtons Hotel, Kilkenny, Woodlands Hotel, Waterford, Ormonde Hotel, Kilkenny, The Step House Hotel, Borris, Co. Carlow, The Lord Bagenal, Loughlinbridge, Co. Carlow, and many more. At the many wedding shows the wedding suppliers showcase everything that is current and ‘Must Have’ for prospective brides to be. Including an incredible selection of wedding dresses. Indeed the focus of the majority of the brides was the bridal fashion shows, which provided an ideal opportunity to have a sneak preview of what’s in fashion. Big skirts are very much ‘in’ but bodices remain fitted, and in the majority of cases, strapless. There is less intricate beading and glitz about. This seems to have been replaced instead by trails and fabric embellishments.
And as for colour and styles, well vintage is without doubt the buzz word for weddings this year.
So what sums up a vintage themed wedding? Colour-wise: cream, ivory (never white) and all shades of pinks from pale to dusky with a splash of cerise. Green is also popular, particularly olive green and the soft grey/green of eucalyptus. Overall the look could be described as cottage garden, very flowery, natural and pretty.
Reception designs seem to fall into two groups, quirky or elegant. For quirky it’s ceramic jugs and pitchers, individual glass vases, bone china cups and saucers. A sort of mix and match, church hall/ marquee on the village green type of feel. On the elegant front, brides at the show loved the tall glass martini vases, filled with water and roses petals (in vintage pink of course). Storm lanterns and decorate birdcages also seemed to tick a lot of the boxes with many brides who were looking for a variety of designs for the reception, rather than repeating the same one all the way trough.
A contrast from the vintage muted shades is purple, a colour witch looks to be big over the next couple of years. A top table of trailing amaranthus and purple vanda orchids was one of the most popular items on display. – one bride even took her bridesmaids shoes out of the box so she could match them up (they went perfectly).
So to sum up the wedding look for 2011/12 – well, it’s very flowery, which is great for florists, with lots of pastel shades and natural greens accented with splashes of purple.
Flower-wise, roses are going to be even bigger this year, in particular the more (and it’s that word again) vintage colours, such as Amnesia, Hypnose, and Amalia should fit the bill.
Away from roses, hydrangeas continue the cottage garden theme, along with delphiniums, gladioli and for something a little more up-market for the bridal bouquet, vanda orchids.
Who would have thought that just a couple of Sundays at the different wedding events in the south east of Ireland could provide you with such valuable insights!
