Amber and Pete were married on 29 September 2018 at Gaynes Park. They chose a gorgeous colour scheme of coral, peach and ivory and I used the stunning Juliet rose from David Austin Roses as the focal flower in the bouquets and the groom's buttonhole. I also got to use the fabulous Miss Piggy rose for that pop of coral.
This was my first wedding at Gaynes Park and what a beautiful venue it is! So many lovely features everywhere - including this gorgeous bench - so me and my mum (my regular florist assistant!) took a walk through the grounds just to be able to appreciate it all. The bride's bouquet went right up there amongst my all time favourite bouquets.
There were five bridesmaids who all carried a smaller version of the bridal bouquet, finished with the same white lace around the stems.
All boxed up and ready for delivery!
As mentioned above the groom had a Juliet rose for his buttonhole and the other men had peach spray roses to compliment, all with just a little bit of foliage - sometimes less is definitely more when it comes to buttonholes!
For the mums and nans we had wrist corsages on pearl beaded bracelets. with peach spray roses to match the buttonholes and just a little hint of coral with the hypericum berries.
The ceremony took place in the orangery and on this lovely sunny day the area was so bright and beautiful. We dotted rose gold vases and tealight holders along the front of the registrar table, with some larger mason jars at either end that matched the table centrepieces.
Amber and Pete went for a statement long and low arrangement for their top table which was framed by some spectacular thrones for the bride and groom to sit on! The tables featured a rustic log slice with a trio of vases on top and candles dotted around the outside.
It was great to work with Pinkface on the macaron tower provided by Maman Macaron. Amber had shared a photo with me of the sort of look she wanted and I had an idea of how I was going to construct it but I couldn't actually put the flower together until I was on site. I always have a toolbag with me when setting up a wedding which has everything a florist could ever need in it, so luckily I was prepared if my plan didn't work! Luckily it did though so I made a small arrangement in oasis for the top of the cake and a circlet for the base to wrap around the bottom tier of the macaron stand. And I have to say it looked fabulous!
Here's just a little sneak peek of the happy couple from one of their guests - just lovely! The bride's dress had a hint of blush in the skirt which looked so beautiful.
Wishing this lovely couple all the best for their future together 🧡
