Emily and Reece were married on 9 April 2021 at Colchester Town Hall. After postponing from 2020 due to Covid they went ahead with a small ceremony with two witnesses, celebrating the true meaning of marriage. They chose a classic mix of red and white for their flowers, and I used roses, spray roses, waxflower and eucalyptus.
Emily's bouquet was a classic, domed shape but with some lovely textures from the waxflower and eucalyptus, and I finished the bouquet with lace ribbon.
The groom wore a complimentary buttonhole of spray roses, waxflower and eucalyptus.
There was also an additional buttonhole and a corsage for the witnesses - I kept the buttonhole as all white with red satin ribbon to compliment.
The ladies wrist corsage was designed onto a pearl beaded bracelet, with all white flowers to compliment the men's buttonhole.
A little photo of the happy couple!
I hope Emily and Reece had a wonderful day.
Chloe and Aston were married on 10 October 2020 at their local church in Suffolk. After postponing twice this sweet couple just wanted to be married so decided to go ahead with a smaller ceremony. We provided the bridal bouquet, bridesmaids and a handful of buttonholes, in a gorgeous mix of white flowers and grey toned foliages.
Chloe's bouquet was so pretty and textured - finished with trailing satin ribbons and with dahlias homegrown in the garden!
Chloe's two bridesmaids carried smaller versions of her bouquet, finished with the same trailing ribbons.
Aston wore a buttonhole of a spray rose and lisianthus blooms with some foliage, with just spray roses for the other men. All of the buttonholes were finished with satin ribbon to match the bouquets.

Jo and Charlie married on 10 September 2020 at Gosfield Hall. They originally postponed from June but were determined to go ahead this year and thankfully the restrictions at the time allowed them to. They went for a pretty mix of mauves, whites and greys for their flowers, with roses, spray roses, hydrangea, astilbe, astrantia, gypsophila, mint, stocks and freesia, with three different varieties of eucalyptus.
Jo's bouquet was super pretty, kept fairly compact and not too wild but with with lots of different flowers bringing different shapes and textures. I finished the stems with ivory satin ribbon held with pins.
Jo's bridesmaid carried a smaller bouquet but with all the same flowers and foliages.
Bride and bridesmaid!
Charlie's buttonhole had a rose, a spray rose, astilbe, gypsophila and some eucalyptus. My handwritten buttonhole tag looked perfect with it!
The groomsmen wore white rose buttonholes, with astilbe, gyp and limonium.
The bride's mum wore a complimentary corsage with a different coloured focal rose.
All packaged up and ready for delivery!
Setting up at the venue - we had to wear a visor which was a strange experience but safety first! We had our temperatures checked when we arrived and had to use hand gel - the venue were very good with their Covid protection measures.
We decorated the ceremony area which looked beautiful. Due to Covid the ceremony had to move to a different room than originally planned, to allow more space, but this room was actually a lot lighter and very elegant. We scattered rose petals down the aisle, laid out candles in glass vases and framed the registrars table with two pedestal arrangements. These flowers were later moved over to the tables and placed on different stands for the centrepieces. My assistant Sarah even made a little heart out of petals on one of the side tables - so sweet!
We also decorated the staircase in the entrance hall, beside which the cake was placed on a table for cutting. There was a cluster of flowers with foliage wrapped around the bannister and trailing down to the floor.
The simple yet elegant cake was made by Luca's Cakes and we provided some individually wired and taped flowers to decorate this with. A few rose petals scattered around the base finished it off perfectly.
Along the top table we placed a series of bud bases, with a larger vase for the bridal bouquet to be placed into. We then loosely scattered rose petals and eucalyptus leaves along the whole length.
There were six guest tables with three different designs on them. On two of the tables was a tall gold stand for the flowers to be moved over from the ceremony area. On another two tables was a smaller gold stand with a similar arrangement - just a smaller version!
On the final two tables some of the glass candle holders were moved over from the ceremony table with the artificial candles swapped out for real ones. There was then a trio of bud vases around the outside and tealights in between.
A couple of thank you bouquets - a large one for the bride's mum and a smaller one for the wedding co-ordinator.
Here's a little peek at the professional photos by EPS Photography - just lovely!

In my first wedding post lockdown, Sammy and Nick married on 9 August 2020 at Houchins. I was originally supposed to meet with them back in January but for personal reasons this was cancelled, then lockdown happened and in the end they only actually booked with me two weeks before the big day!
They went for a pretty pastel mix for their flowers including roses, astilbe, dephinium, ammi and homegrown dahlias, with eucalyptus and jasmine foliages. Sammy's bouquet has gone straight up there amongst my favourites, with the pops of blue from the delphinium just looking amazing and the trailing satin ribbons finishing it off perfectly.
Sammy's two bridesmaids carried smaller versions of her bouquet, with all of the same flowers and foliages and finished with the same trailing ribbons.
At the venue ready to be taken to the bride!
Nick wore a buttonhole of peach and white spray roses, with all white spray roses for his groomsmen. A little bit of eucalyptus and some ivory ribbon finished them off so nicely.
Delivery! I'm so pleased I went on a calligraphy workshop to learn how to write these sweet little tags (if anyone is interested I learnt with Lydia Packham Calligraphy.)
Due to Covid restrictions Sammy and Nick only held their ceremony at the venue but that didn't mean it was any less special! We decorated the ceremony area with a beautiful long and low, with my trademark foliage curtain framing the area beautifully.
We also provided fresh rose petals for their guests to scatter, in individual lace trimmed cones.
And then just a couple of thank you bouquets for the mums to finish off!
Here's just a little preview of the professional photos by the incredibly talented Ella Violet Photography:

Grace and Elliott were married on 29 February 2020 at Houchins. They went for a beautiful blush pink and white colour scheme for their flowers, with some pops of darker pink coming through. We used a mix of roses, spray roses, ranunculus, astilbe and gypsophila, with lots of lovely foliage to compliment.
Grace's bouquet was a beautiful mix of these flowers, finished around the stems with lace ribbon.
There were four adult bridesmaids who each carried a smaller version of Grace's bridal bouquet.
There were then three junior bridesmaids who carried smaller versions still - so sweet!
All boxed up ready for delivery, including a pic of the lovely bride with her bouquet!
The groom wore a double spray rose buttonhole with some foliage, also finished off with lace ribbon to compliment the bouquets.
The other men wore single spray rose buttonholes, so just a little smaller than the groom's.
For the grandparents we created small buttonholes of gypsophila with a little bit of foliage.
Buttonhole delivery! I went on a calligraphy workshop with Lydia Packham Calligraphy so that I could make these lovely little tags for your buttonholes and bouquets. It's just a little extra touch that I think makes everything that much more personal.
For the two mums we designed two different styles of corsage - one wore a lapel corsage and the other a wrist corsage. We used pink flowers here to make them that little bit more feminine.
In the van and ready for delivery!
Over at the venue we decorated the ceremony room with some loose foliage and flowers, a log slice and some candles on the registrars table, plus some simple rose and foliage chair ends.
The venue looked stunning all set up. And don't worry the guests did get chairs - these were moved over after the ceremony!
For the centrepieces we placed a log slice in the middle of the table. The bride and groom provided their own candles which we placed on the top, and we then decorated around the outside of the log with loose foliage and flowers to match the rest of the wedding.
On one of the walls we suspended four of our foliage hoops, which framed the couple's dinner menu which was hung in the centre.
To finish off we supplied fresh rose petals for the confetti.
How beautiful do the happy couple look in these photos courtesy of a guest?!
I hope Grace and Elliott had a wonderful day!
