We’ve had a few glimpses of the amazing Twilight wedding scene. The trailers promised a magical woodland setting, but only showed the flowers for a split second. But the time has finally come, Breaking Dawn is released today. The lady behind the wedding set design and flowers is Tammy Polatsek. She was responsible for designing and sourcing all the flowers for the wedding and reception. She also designed a porcelain dinner set for the reception that was used in the film.

The wedding had a Mid-summer nights dream feel to it, everything was very natural and earthy in a forest setting surrounded by lots of flowers, foliage and moss. The colour scheme for the flowers was white and ivory with lots of deep green ferns.
The ceremony featured low woodland style arrangements lining the aisle and a stunning floral canopy. The canopy was made with thousands of white wisteria flowers made into 40-50 feet lengths. White lavender and cherry blossom also featured in the ceremony flowers. There were tree stumps dotted around the ceremony to complete the woodland theme, these were decorated with flowers so they appeared to be growing from the stumps.
The aisle was strewn with white petals and at the end of the aisle there was a magnificent floral arch where Edward and Bella said their vows. It was covered in white flowers including delphiniums and cherry blossom.

The reception tables were dressed with moss green table cloths with fabric leaves attached to them. The centrepieces were large natural designs with viburnum opulus, delphiniums, sweet peas, hyacinths, ranunculus, umbrella ferns and moss. The centrepiece incorporated candelabras shaped like tree branches. Small candles were also dotted around the arrangement.

The wedding cake was a large five tier design, simply iced and decorated with ivory and white flowers. The floral ring surrounding the cake contained roses, viburnum, and sweet peas.
