Hands up who loves Parma Violets?! I do. And I do even more now I’ve seen Jayne and Phil’s parma violet inspired wedding reception at the Lowry, Manchester. With all photos by Chris Hanley Photography, take a peek at this fab wedding inspiration board – it’s purple-tastic.
Jayne and Phil’s wedding was at The Lowry in Manchester, a modern theatre with creative interiors in every colour you can imagine. The wedding reception room however is a blank canvas, so Jayne and Phil chose shades of purple to make it look amazing for their wedding day.
Jayne’s purple wedding bouquet was a cluster of pale violet freesias and darker purple hydrangeas. If you’re having a violet or purple wedding theme check with your florist which flowers will be in season. Purple roses are popular all year round; freesias spring-summer and hydrangeas throughout the summer period.
Chairs were covered in white and tied with a purple sash in organza fabric.
I love Jayne’s wedding table plan! Based on a white curly wire stand in a heart shape, Jayne and Phil used rustic white handmade petal card with a deckle edge and wrote their guest names in curly lettering. White and silver butterflies were attached to the sides of the table plan – a great idea!
Tables were decorated with pink and purple flowers – alliums, hydrangeas, pink peonies and maybe delphiniums (pop quiz: who can name the taller purple and pink flowers on the tables?!)
There was table trivia to keep guests entertained – I love the royal teaspoon with a question on the handle! and purple glittery place cards with the motif “Love” to complete the look.
Now who loves ? Wedding inspiration from that didsy little roll of purple sweets with the purple and pink writing – what a brilliant idea! Thanks to Chris Hanley Photography as ever for the photos for this blog post. Could you create a wedding theme around your favourite sweets? I’d love to hear your ideas 🙂
