Harriet and Ryan were married on 22 February 2019 at Leez Priory. They went for a beautiful blush and white colour scheme for their flowers with lots of gorgeous foliage. The ranunculus were particularly stunning!
Harriet's bouquet was a beauty - so soft and pretty with an abundance of gorgeous foliage. It was finished with ribbon trails in shades of blush and ivory.
Harriet's list of materials:
Instead of bouquets Harriet and Ryan chose to go for flower crowns for the bridesmaids and flower girls. I kept them quite lights and dainty with spray roses, waxflower and foliage, finished at the back with trailing ribbon to match the bridal bouquet.
The groom's buttonhole was an all white affair - a ranunculus, a spray rose, waxflower and some foliage. The men's buttonholes were designed to compliment, but without the spray rose so the groom's was more special. For the ladies there was one lapel corsage and four wrist corsages, designed onto a length of ribbon so they could be easily adjusted.
The bridal flowers all packaged up ready for delivery!
Over at the venue Harriet and Ryan went for a small sized long and low for their ceremony table, which was later moved over to the top table for the reception.
This is where it gets interesting - Leez don't set up their tables until really late in the day so I had to set up the table centrepieces in the kitchen (very glamorous!) for them to be moved over to the coach house later on.
Wishing all the happiness in the world to this lovely couple 💗
Janet and Michael were married on 14 February 2019 in Kings Langley. They went for an all white colour palette so I used roses, spray roses, ranunuculus and bouvardia, with eucalyptus and dusty miller. I also used a few sprigs of rosemary and myrtle in Janet's bouquet as these were particularly sentimental to her.
I wrote Janet a list of the flowers and foliages that I'd included in her bouquet. I partly did this because I wanted Janet to know that the sentimental items were included, but also because I thought it would make a nice keepsake. After posting the idea on Instagram the response was overwhelmingly positive so this is something I'm going to roll out for all my weddings now - I've even had some proper cards printed!
Janet's only bridesmaid carried a smaller version of her bouquet.
The groom's buttonhole was a larger version of the designs for the other men, with a ranunculus and spray rose with a little foliage. The other men wore a single ranunculus with the foliage.
There were also four ladies corsages - two lapel ones and two wrist ones on pearl beaded bracelets. All the lapel designs were finished with light grey satin ribbon.
The flowers all packaged up and ready for delivery!
And here's a lovely photo of the happy couple courtesy of the bride.
Wishing them a lifetime of happiness 💚
Aimie and Colin were married on 26 January 2019 at Hedingham Castle. They chose a classic white and green colour scheme with a few peacock feathers in the bridal bouquet which looked amazing. Designing a shower bouquet is always a little tricky as it's not so easy to hold in your hand and add the flowers in at the same time! I therefore used the box that I delivered the bouquet in to hold the foam holder in place, and had to put the box on the floor to design onto - on my workbench it was too high up and for a shower bouquet you need to be able to see the bouquet in full.
The bridesmaids carried bouquets of all gypsophila, finished with natural jute ribbon wrapped round the handles and held in place with pearl headed pins.
At the venue I added some decor to the Banqueting Hall at the castle - this stunning venue doesn't need much in the way of decoration so sometimes it's better to keep things simple. Along the front of the ceremony table I created a garland of soft ruscus and ivy trails, with white flowers dotted throughout.
The reception set up in the Tapestry Room was equally as stunning, with elegant gold candlesticks and the same foliage and flower garlands running down the tables.
With tables set up in this banqueting style foliage runners are one of the best ways to decorate, they don't take up too much room and they ensure all of your guests have something pretty in front of them.
Wishing so much future happiness to this lovely couple 💚
Emily and Joe were married on 29 December 2018 at Newland Hall. They went for a super soft blush pink and white colour scheme for their flowers, with some wintery grey foliage and berries.
Emily's bouquet was so pretty - soft and delicate with a lace finish to the stems.
Emily had three bridesmaids who carried smaller, simpler versions of her bouquet.
The men's buttonholes featured a spray rose, veronica, brunia berries and a mix of foliage - all finished with a pretty pink ribbon.
The van all loaded up ready for delivery!
Getting to the venue just as it was getting dark was lovely - to see all the lanterns lining the pathway and the candles and lights inside it all looked so lovely.
Their tables looked stunning in the venue; with a log slice, foliage garland, bud vases, lanterns and tealights - the venue looked so festive and cosy!
Wishing a long and happy future together for this lovely couple 💕
Karen and Dave were married on 27 December 2018 at Leez Priory. They chose a pretty blush pink and pastel blue colour scheme for their flowers, with some white flowers and a little bit of foliage - a beautiful colour combination that works well all year round. I used delphinium, roses, spray roses, brunia, gypsophila and eucalyptus.
Karen's bouquet was so pretty, so soft and delicate and so much texture - all my favourite things!
Karen's two bridesmaids carried bouquets of all gypsophila. They wore dresses in pastel blue (I got a sneak peek when dropping off the flowers!) which would have complimented the flowers so perfectly.
Ready for delivery!
The groom wore a buttonhole with a white spray rose, some delphinium, gyp and eucalyptus - the perfect accompaniment to the bridal bouquet. The groomsmen had buttonholes of all gyp to match the bridesmaids and the ladies' corsages were similar to the groom's buttonhole.
Karen and Dave chose to reuse the venue flowers between the ceremony area and the reception. This is a great way to make the most out of your flowers and really helps with budgeting. In this instance the long and low on the ceremony table was later moved to the top table and the gyp chair ends were moved to vases to make up some of the table centrepieces. The other tables had similar vases with mixed flowers and foliage to match.
I hope Karen and Dave had an amazing day and a long and happy future together 💗💙
