Emma and Daryl were married on 16 March 2019 at Vaulty Manor. They chose a beautiful colour palette of peach, pink and ivory and incorporated some stunningly scented garden roses in the mix of flowers.
Emma;s bouquet was so pretty and smelt absolutely divine! We finished off the stems with trailing satin and lace ribbons which complimented the flowers perfectly.
I provided some loose stems of spray roses and waxflower, which Bridal Hair by Jennie did a wonderful job of attaching to Emma's plait.
The made of honour and flower girls carried smaller versions of the bride's bouquet, with the same trailing ribbons to decorate.
The groom's buttonhole was a beautiful 'pink o'hara' rose, accompanied by waxflower and some eucalyptus. The other men wore a smaller version featuring a pink spray rose. Three ladies corsages finished the set, again with a spray rose to keep them more delicate.
All lined up at the venue waiting to be put on!
The ceremony area looked so beautiful when all set up. The amazing giant balloons were provided by Willows Den, paired with a rose gold sequin table cloth, wooden crate and various other props. I used two of the table centrepieces in here first - if there are ways to incorporate your table flowers into your ceremony area then I will always recommend this as a way to make the most of your budget.
A trio of foliage hoops decorate the staircase and where the gifts would be left later on - Emma had great vision here and it shows that if you like the hoops then they don't necessarily have to hang against a wall.
There were some really lovely little touches from their zoo theme running throughout the wedding - including sparkly gold animals in all the table centrepieces. These were designed onto my gold candlestick stands, with a beautiful, elongated arrangement on top. The tables were oval rather than round so this shape complimented them better than a round design would.
The delicious looking cake was by The Sticky Fingers Cake Company. Me and Lou worked together to get all the flowers and foliage wired and taped and then attached to the cake and it looked absolutely fabulous by the time we'd finished!
The animal touches didn't just apply to the tables - I also loved the zoo themed table plan and the "adopt an animal" basket was just adorable. I wanted to take them all home myself!!

Wishing a long and happy future to this lovely couple 💗
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 so much happiness 💚
