The Badger described it as “easy on the eye” and kept on and on about the legs but it was more than the ladies who looked utterly stunning at the Rigaud wedding this weekend. I think the keyword was simplicity. Liberty was certain about her colour from the start, which she described as “electric purple”. The colour was subtly repeated in the ribbons wrapping their very witty invite (photo booth poses) and in the favour wrapping, the flowers, the bridesmaids dresses, the grooms men’s ties and even the lanterns later in the evening.
There was panic when the carefully ordered electric purple gladioli arrived and were most definitely white with purple edges. They weren’t going to cut it on their own in the barn which definitely needs some colour, so, what to do? The answer was a mercy dash on Thursday morning to the Bordeaux flower market where they had a stock of gorgeous purple Lisianthus. We placed generous bunches in tall straight vases, alternated them with vases of Gladioli and voila, the flowers were all sorted out. The purple paper wrapped favours contained Space Invader sweeties.
It was all just lovely.
