Laura and Karl were married on 16 August 2021 at Blake Hall. They chose beautiful soft pinks and whites for the bridal flowers, which included some stunning garden roses, astilbe, gyp and eucalyptus.
The bridesmaids carried more rustic bouquets of gypsophila and foliage. I'll be honest I wasn't too sure how these would come out but I actually love them! Usually when I make gyp and foliage bouquets the greenery is added last as a sort of collar around the flowers, but it looked great running through the bouquet and breaking up the white. I'll definitely make these again!
Delivered at the venue - the bride shed a tear which is always so rewarding (as long as it's happy tears!) and how cool does that leather jacket look!
Karl's buttonhole featured a white rose, astilbe, gypsophila and foliage.
There were a mix of different buttonholes for the various members of the groom's party - there were different designs for the best man, bride's dad and page boy. It's fun when the buttonholes aren't all the same!
For the ladies I made all white wrist corsages on ivory ribbon.
The ceremony area looked stunning - there was a long and low on the table which was later moved over to the top table. Two of the centrepieces framed the table on tall plinths. with gyp and foliage chair ends lining the aisle.
In addition to the long and low on the top table I added in a luscious eucalyptus garland which trailed along the full length and draped over either end.
I made showstopper arrangements of gyp for the tables on tall glass vases. The bride and groom had provided some little tealights and confetti for around the base.
I also left some flowers that I’d prepared for the cake as this arrived later than me, but The Shhh Baker tagged me in some photos once she’d finished and it looked beautiful!
Here's a quick little preview from the venue - I can't wait to see more photos!
I hope Laura and Karl had a wonderful day!
Charlie and Nick were married on 13 August 2021 at Baddow Park House. They chose pretty whites, blues and pinks for their flowers, which included roses, astilbe, delphinium and dendrobium orchids. Charlie's bouquet was finished with trailing silk ribbons in shades of white and powder blue.
I also provided some small blooms for the bride's hair.
The six bridesmaids carried smaller versions of the bride's bouquet, finished with trailing white silk ribbons.
Nick's buttonhole included a white rose, dendrobium orchid, delphinium bloom and some foliage. I used a thinner blue silk ribbon to finish off the stems.
The groomsmen wore all white buttonholes featuring a rose, gypsophila and foliage.
On the top table I placed a medium sized long and low in the centre. I then decorated the full length of the table with vases for some of the bridesmaid bouquets, tealights, loose foliage, roses and gyp. It looked beautiful!
The rest of the venue was decorated with a mix of stunning tall arrangements and beautiful lanterns, with the rest of the bridesmaid bouquets being used as additional decor.

Chelsie and Joe were married on 12 August 2021 at Hatfield Place. They went for pretty pinks and whites for their flowers, which included roses, spray roses, astilbe, lisianthus and gyp. Chelsie's bouquet was finished with trailing ribbons in shades of soft pink, ivory and grey.
Chelsie's bridesmaids carried smaller bouquets of gypsophila, with blush roses and pink astilbe. There were two adult maids and two younger juniors.
For Joe's buttonhole I used a large pink rose with a darker pink spray rose, gypsophila and eucalyptus.
The groomsmen wore soft pink spray rose buttonholes with gyp and foliage.
There were also wrist corsages for the ladies, designed onto a pearl beaded bracelet.
To decorate the ceremony room we utilised some of the arrangements from the table centrepieces - two large arrangements on tall stands and a lower arrangement which we placed directly on the table. It framed the room perfectly.
The bride and groom sat at a sweetheart top table, which we decorated with small vases of roses and astilbe.
The venue looked stunning decorated with flowers in both low and tall arrangements. I love when there's a bit of variety across the tables, and the combination of tall and low designs provides interest at all levels.

Hannah and Alex were married on 10 August 2021 (fifth date lucky!) at Houchins. They chose pretty pinks, whites and blues with just the hint of burgundy for their flowers, which included roses, hydrangea, astilbe, oxypetalum and homegrown dahlias.
I provided loose blooms for the bride's hair, which the lovely Michelle at Bumbleebee Bridal added in on the day.
The bridesmaids wore wrist corsages instead of carrying bouquets - free hands for drinks and snacks!
They also wore hair combs with flowers to match.
Alex's buttonhole featured delicate flowers to compliment the bridal bouquet - that oxypetalum is just so pretty!
The other men wore double spray rose buttonholes with mixed foliage.
Delivery at the venue!
My lovely freelancer Amy helped me set up at the venue, where we created a stunning display in the ceremony area. Clusters of flowers adorned the ceremony loggia, with foliage joining them up and a large 'long and low' arrangement on the table. We also scattered rose petals down both sides of the aisle.
We provided pretty little bud vases for the tables - the venue later added in some tealights that the bride and groom provided.
We also decorated the mantlepiece with a beautiful foliage garland.

Natalie and Doug were married on 8 August 2021 at Houchins. They chose pretty whites and pinks for their flowers with a mix of different foliages, including eucalyptus, soft ruscus and ferns.
There were three senior bridesmaids and a flower girl, who carried smaller versions of the bridal bouquet. All of the bouquets were finished with trailing satin ribbons.
The flower girl also wore a flower crown, with delicate white florals and a base of foliage.
Ready for delivery!
Doug wore a buttonhole of lisianthus and mixed foliages.
The groomsmen had smaller versions of the groom's buttonhole.
There were also lapel corsages with the ladies, which included gypsophila with the lisianthus and foliage.
Delivered to the venue!
We decorated the ceremony area with a beautiful long and low arrangement on the ceremony table and simple rose and foliage chair ends.
The top table looked a bit bare at the start but I know it would have looked lovely later on as the bouquets and chair ends were added into the vases.
The guest tables were adorned with lanterns, tealights, foliage and loose flowers. The glassware and the gold looked so beautiful and elegant.
The beautiful cake was made by Baked with Love and we provided fresh flowers and foliages to decorate it.
