Lauren and Dan were married on 1 June 2019 at Red Brick Barn. They went for a rustic, natural, wildflower theme with lots of greenery and a little but of lilac/purple to add colour. I used some grasses amongst the flowers which added some lovely movement to the bouquets.
Lauren's bouquet was pretty and wild, with soft tones of lilac coming through amongst the greens.
Lauren's two bridesmaids carried smaller versions of her bouquet, finished with natural rustic twine.
Lauren also wanted to wear a flower crown - she had an inspiration photo that I worked from and I kept it quite simple with greens, lilac and limonium. I left the two ends open and finished the crown with twine so it could be adjusted on the day.
Dan's buttonhole featured a thistle, waxflower, lavender and a selection of foliages and grasses. The other men's buttonholes were smaller versions without the waxflower and there were even mini versions for the two junior ushers. All of the buttonholes were finished with twine to match the bouquets.
For the ladies I made wrist corsages on a length of natural linen fabric. These featured flowers to match the rest of the arrangements.
Everything all boxed up and ready for delivery!
The beautiful pro photos were captured by Jess Soper Photography - check them out below!
Congratulations to the happy couple! 💜
Caitlin and Sam were married on 31 May 2019 at The Coach House at the Marks Hall Estate. They chose mostly white for their flowers with lots of foliage, with some pink and grey roses in the mix - I used 'sweet revival' and 'silver moon'. Caitlin's bouquet was semi asymmetric - she didn't want anything perfectly round. And the colours were just gorgeous!
The maid of honour carried a smaller version of the bridal bouquet and the four other bridesmaids had all white versions. The bouquets were all finished with trailing satin ribbon in shades of ivory and rose gold.
Caitlin had two flower girls - one of them wore a flower crown and the other carried a matching wand. I bet they looked so cute!
Here's a photo Caitlin posted on her Instagram of the bridesmaids and flower girls - the colour of the dresses work perfectly with the coloured roses!
All boxed up and ready for delivery!
The men wore succulents at their buttonholes, paired with a little bit of waxflower and some foliage. They were finished with a little bit of jute ribbon.
The mums wore pearl beaded bracelets with a little cluster of white flowers around their wrists.
At the venue we kept it quite simple - lots of candles and foliage. The top table had pillar candles in cylindrical glass vases (the vases were added after these photos were taken!) and my gold geometric tealights dotted along the front edge of the table, with eucalyptus loosely trailing between everything.
The table centrepieces complimented the top table - a single candle in a vase in the centre with eucalyptus loosely placed around the edge in a ring shape.
The beautiful professional photos come from Megan Rose Photography - what lovely shots! The colours are so very pretty.
Wishing a long and happy future to Caitlin and Sam! 💚
Sophie and Ben were married on 30 May 2019 at Gaynes Park. They went for a beautiful mix of white and blush pink flowers, including peonies and sweet peas - my two favourites!
Sophie's bouquet was a stunner - just a subtle amount of pink coming through amongst the whites and eucalyptus foliage. And I just love this bench at Gaynes Park that is the perfect backdrop for photos - I think every florist who works at this venue takes a photo of the bridal bouquet on the bench!
The bridesmaid and junior bridesmaid bouquets were mostly gypsophila, with some white roses and astilbe - such a pretty design that I've done several times before in both white and pink. Something like this really helps the bridal bouquet to stand out as a statement piece.
There was also a little flower girl who had a super cute heart shaped wand of gypsophila, with beautiful trailing ribbons.
All the bouquets boxed up and ready for delivery!
The groom's buttonhole featured a larger pink rose with a white spray rose, gypsophila and eucalyptus. The other men's buttonholes complimented this just without the pink rose.
There were also three ladies' corsages which matched the buttonholes. These particular spray roses came with lots of little buds and it seemed a shame for them to go to waste so I added one into each of the buttonholes and corsages to add a little dimension.
At the venue I decorated the ceremony area with a small 'long and low' and a simple foliage garland - but sometimes simple is all you need! It complimented the already beautiful orangery at Gaynes Park perfectly.
Here's a few sneak peeks of the bride and groom and the bride with her maids, courtesy of the bride.
Congratulations to the newlyweds! 💗
Amy and Darryl were married on 26 May 2019 at The Compasses at Pattiswick. They chose white for their flowers, with a subtle amount of pastel pink and blue coming through and lots of lovely eucalyptus foliage. I used a mix of 'avalanche' roses, 'bombastic' and 'miss bombastic' spray roses, delphinium, sweet peas, spray dianthus and gypsophila.
The bridesmaid bouquets were all gypsophila with some eucalyptus around the edge. The smaller version for the little flower girl had a few pink spray roses mixed in with the gyp - it was such a cute bouquet!
The bouquets were all finished with beautiful silk ribbon from Little Acorn Silks - mint green for the bride and flower girl and ivory for the bridesmaids.
All ready for delivery and the bride's recipe list!
The groom's buttonhole featured flowers in all three colours of the wedding - pink and white spray roses and blue delphinium, with a little bit of eucalyptus to compliment. It also had a little bit of mint green silk ribbon to finish.
The men's buttonholes were designed to match the bridesmaid bouquets - just gypsophila and eucalyptus, with ivory satin ribbon to finish.
And not forgetting the ladies - the mums and the bride's two sisters-in-law had all white wrist corsages on a pearl beaded bracelet. Sometimes staying all white for ladies flowers is best as this won't clash with their outfits.
To finish off Amy ordered two gift bouquets to give as a thank you to the mums.
Here's a cute little photo of the newlyweds taken by a guest:
Congratulations to Amy and Darryl, I hope you had an amazing day! 💗💙
Molly and Frazer held their ceremony and wedding reception on 25 May 2019 at Pleshey village hall. With orange as their focal colour they went for a selection of beautiful bright flowers, following a gathered, wildlfower style. I created a bouquet for the bride, hair pieces and buttonholes, and then a stunning arch with hanging geometric shapes which they used as a backdrop for their outdoor ceremony.
The bride wanted something really dainty and delicate for her flower crown - I used gypsophila and limonium to create this, with a few daisies dotted throughout. I then finished the crown with twine so it could be easily adjusted.
Molly's maid of honour also wore flowers in her hair, in the form of a comb. I kept this mostly white so it would match with Molly's, with just a little bit of the orange colour peeking through.
The men's buttonholes featured succulents with helichrysum, scabiosa stellata and a selection of foliage.
There were also a couple of smaller versions for the younger groomsmen.
The arch for the ceremony backdrop was so much fun to make! I set it up the day before the wedding so I was a little concerned about the flowers lasting ok but I managed to hide some water vials amongst the foliage so they had a water source throughout the day. I set it up under this stretch tent in the playing field so my photos aren't great but it was moved outside for the actual ceremony - you can just see it in the background of one of the pro photos posted below.
Molly and Frazer spotted these geometric shapes hanging up in my studio when they came for their final consultation and had the great vision to hang these from my rose gold metal arch with some flowers on them to decorate. I then suggested the soft ruscus garland which I would wrap around the frame in an asymmetric style to hide the mechanics of the shapes and just to finish off the design.
Here's a little preview of the stunning professional photos by Three Flowers Photography - I just love all the colours!
I hope the happy couple had a wonderful day! 🧡
