Claire and Lewis were married on 31 August 2018 at Houchins. They went for a classic white and green colour palette which looked gorgeous in the venue. I used a mix of roses, spray roses, stocks, phlox, lisianthus, gyp and astrantia, with a mix of different eucalyptus foliages. Claire's loose, natural bouquet was beautiful with so much texture that there was interest from every single angle - my favourite kind of bouquet!
The bridesmaids carried smaller, simpler versions of the bridal bouquet and all were finished with a simple ivory satin ribbon.
The buttonholes were also classic and elegant - white spray roses and foliage. There were also a couple of corsages that included some additional gypsophila.
I just loved the ceremony set up - it was so great that this couple wanted to make such a statement of this part of the wedding and the combination of the soft ruscus curtain, entrance garland and aisle petals/eucalyptus leaves looked amazing! They also went for a personalised wooden box arrangement for the ceremony table, which was later moved over to the top table along with the entrance garland which trailed out of either end. The chair ends also moved over to be placed in copper vases dotted along the top table.
For their centrepieces Claire and Lewis went for a mix of three different styles - a tall arrangement on a conical vase, a mid size arrangement in a copper based vase and a slightly smaller arrangement in a wooden crate which complimented the top table box perfectly. The fairy light backdrop in the venue looks great surrounding the flowers! The tables showed how much effort the couple put into making their wedding look gorgeous - small copper scatter crystals decorated the table along with small personalised wooden hearts. The table numbers were also in copper to carry the theme along.
The scrumptious looking cake was from Little Lucy's Bakery and we provided some small budded white flowers to add to the decoration. The flower wall backdrop was from Aurora Pearl - it was later used as an alternative to a photobooth which is a great idea - I will always advocate the use of more flowers!!

Wishing all the best to this lovely couple! 💚
Lauren and Conor were married on 26 August 2018 at the Best Western Rose & Crown Hotel. They went for an ivory and dusky pink colour palette which meant I got to use the beautiful 'menta' rose - one of my favourites! I also used spray roses, astrantia, lysimachia, gyp, astilbe and phlox, with three different varieties of eucalyptus and also some jasmine trails.
The bridesmaids carried all gyp bouquets with a hint of eucalyptus around the base to tie them in with the bridal bouquet - they looked fabulous and make a nice change to a bouquet of just gyp. They also featured lovely trailing satin ribbons in shades of pink and ivory.
Conor had a rose and gyp buttonhole and the other groomsmen had just gyp and foliage to match the bridesmaid bouquets. They were finished with twine which looked fab - it shows that you don't necessarily have to have the same ribbon on he bouquets as on the buttonholes. Sometimes the men want to be a bit more "manly" and therefore the twine works well for this!
At the venue I got to put together this fabulous top table arrangement - I pre-made a mixed foliage garland which was placed in the centre of the table. I then loosely placed eucalyptus stems along the rest of the top table and added flowers in individual water vials into the central garland. A full top table garland can get very expensive so this is a great, more budget friendly, way of doing it. The bride and groom also added Mr and Mrs letters and some little silver lanterns to make more of a feature along the length of the table.
The fabulous cake and cupcakes were by The Cupcake Oven and we provided some flowers to accompany them.
The absolutely gorgeous professional photographs are by Helen Elliott Photography - you can see a preview below. I can't wait to see more (I swear I get just as excited as the bride and groom about seeing the pro photos from a wedding!!)
Wishing a long and happy future to this lovely couple! 💗
Kelly and Maurice were married on 25 August 2018 at Maidens Barn. They went for a soft and pretty colour combination of pink and ivory, incorporating roses, spray roses, astrantia, bouvardia and lisianthus, with eucalyptus and dusty miller.
Kelly's bouquet looked so lovely - I don't think blush pink and ivory will ever lose popularity as a colour combination for weddings, and why should it when it looks this nice?!
The bridesmaids carried smaller versions of the bridal bouquet, and there was also a little flower girl who carried a smaller version still!
The buttonholes were a simple yet elegant affair - white spray roses and foliage.
For their centrepieces Kelly and Maurice chose vintage teacups with a mix of flowers from the wedding in them, sat on slate plates to bring them up a little. They didn't have a long top table, rather another circular table amongst their guests, but we still wanted to differentiate it a bit from the other tables. Therefore on this table we used both a teacup and also a teapot for an added arrangement.
Wishing a long an happy future to this lovely couple! 💗
Johanna and Martin were married on 13 August 2018 at Houchins. They went for a soft pink and ivory colour scheme, including 'menta' and 'avalanche' roses, spray roses, astilbe, astrantia, gyp, eryngium and scabiosa, with eucalyptus and jasmine trails.
Johanna's bouquet is one of my all time favourites. I know I say this after almost every wedding but I am continually amazed at how beautifully the flowers go together! The jasmine trails really add something to the bouquet, and even better - they were homegrown!
The two bridesmaids carried smaller versions of the bridal bouquet, and all of the bouquets were finished with trailing satin and natural dyed silk ribbons.
The buttonholes featured pink spray roses, astilbe and gypsophila, with a double rose buttonhole for the groom. The ladies' corsages featured a pretty 'menta' rose which had a lovely tone to it. I also made a small wrist corsage for the flower girl which was on a length of ribbon so that it could be adjusted according to the size of her wrist.
I love the ceremony set up at Houchins - the whole venue is stunning anyway, with the most gorgeous gardens and pretty reception area. I made a long and low for the ceremony table which was later moved over to the top table for the reception, as well as chair ends for the chairs down the aisle.
The photographer for this wedding is Laura Jane Photography and from the few sneak peeks she's posted so far the photographs are going to be gorgeous!
All the best to this sweet couple for their future together 💕
