Wedding Decor – Church

This was my first collaboration with a very talented Italian florist named Elena Bregna.

A couple wanted the decorations ideas for their wedding this summer. The wedding will take place in a very important church in the centre of Como (Italy), Saint Fedele’s Church.hydrangea_macrophylla

Because of the date, it’s been decided to use one of the most beautiful plants with an explosive inflorescence like the Hydrangea macrophylla commonly known as Hortensia“.

This gorgeous plant is a deciduous rounded shrub, with glossy dark green leaves and blooms  in the mid summer through fall. As we all know (and for those who don’t), the colour of the Hydrangeas flowers is affected by the Soil pH or acidity of the soil

  • Acidic soil: pH below 6, generates flower colour closer to blue. This type of soil naturally contains agents such as aluminium or iron.
  • Alkaline soil: pH above 6, produces flowers more pink.
  • Neutral soil: pH from 6 to 7, produces White flowers.

So, the couple wanted all the church’s arrangements colours to be white and acid green, which means that the hydrangea is perfect for this decoration.

My partner proposed all the placement of the different arrangements inside and outside the church… Sure she did, she is the Florist!…  I, on the other hand, proposed how the church would look and made the designs, I also made little changes in order to be able to post this article to all of you! I’d added white and acid green roses and some Gypsophila  paniculatato give the finishing touches to every arrangement.

Here’s the idea of the actual church and some ideas of the way it should look

Of course the wedding takes place in a closed church, but I wanted to leave this examples to set an idea
