Claire and Mike were married on 22 June 2019 at Mulberry House. They chose a classic all white and green look for their flowers including lots of my favourites - especially peonies and sweet peas! They had clearly put a lot of thought into decorating the venue as every area was covered, including the entrance to the ceremony room, the staircase where the bride makes her entrance and little personalised touches for all their tables. The professional photos here come from Sean East Photography. Wishing a long and happy future to Claire and Mike!
Claire's bouquet was beautiful and smelt amazing! The jasmine trails coming out at the sides looked so pretty and really helped to break up the white so you could see and appreciate all the different textures.
The bridesmaids carried smaller versions of Claire's bouquet, all finished with a soft grey ribbon.
All boxed up and ready for delivery!
There were three flower girls - two carried a gypsophila wand, one of my most popular designs for the little bridesmaids, and wore a matching flower crown while the little maid wore a mini wrist corsage on matching ribbon to the bouquets.
The groom wore a double buttonhole featuring spray roses to keep it more delicate, with a single rose for the other men to match.
There were also three mini buttonholes for the page boys which were so cute! I used a smaller headed spray rose, less gyp and less foliage to keep them in proportion with the wearer.
The two mums wore corsages to compliment the men's buttonholes, with a double rose like the groom but with the addition of astilbe which added a little feminine touch.
Claire and Mike had clearly put a lot of thought into decorating the venue as every area was covered, including the entrance to the ceremony room, the staircase where the bride makes her entrance and little personalised touches for all their tables.
The box that went on the ceremony table and later the top table was huge! Once full of floral foam and flowers it was so heavy it took two of us to carry it in!
Claire wasn't keen on the area outside the entrance to the ceremony room so wanted to add a little extra decor - she provided some lanterns and the chalkboards and I added in my wooden crates which the couple hired off me as well as some galvanised tins with flowers in. I even ended up moving the cigarette bin and hiding it behind a bush to make the area a little prettier!
The staircase where the bride made her entrance - I wrapped a mixed foliage garland around the bannister and added in little groupings of flowers which were in water vials to keep them fresh.
A little behind the scenes view of studio as I was designing the flowers! That was a lot of crates to fill - keep reading to see them in use!
The personalised wooden crates were used as centrepieces on the tables and made for lovely keepsakes after the wedding (I'm not sure what happened to the colouring in these photos!)
A couple of thank you gift bouquets finished the flowers off.

Caroline and Chris were married on 22 June 2019 in a church ceremony followed by a reception at Colville Hall. They chose a beautiful mix of brights for their flowers with a tropical vibe; including peonies, protea, roses, astilbe, stocks, mini pineapple and a selection of ferns and other greens.
Caroline's bouquet was a stunner! Big statement flowers, fabulous foliages and all finished with beautiful trailing pink and coral ribbons.
Quite a list of flowers!
The bridesmaids carried smaller, simpler versions of Caroline's bouquet, finished with neat pink ribbon. These looked stunning against their bright dresses, keep reading to see more!
Chris' buttonhole incorporated several of the flowers from Caroline's bouquet - pink and orange spray roses with a bridal protea and foliage.
The other men's buttonholes were very similar just without the protea, all finished with coral ribbon.
There were also a couple of corsages for the mums - same flowers but with pink ribbon rather than the coral.
The stunning professional photographs were captured by The Humble Photography Company - check them out below!
Wishing Caroline and Chris a long and happy future together! 💗🧡
Pippa and Adam were married on 3 June 2019 at Hengrave Hall. They went for a pretty peach and blue colour scheme for their flowers with a lovely mix of different foliages. I used peach and white roses, spray roses, blue delphinium, astilbe, eryngium. ammi and gypsophila, with eucalyptus and asparagus fern.
Pippa's two bridesmaids carried smaller versions of her bouquets, which looked really lovely against their blue dresses.
The little flower girl carried a wand, with a large peach focal rose and smaller flowers and foliages to match the rest of the wedding flowers.
Adam's buttonhole incorporated a flower in each of the colours of the wedding - peach and white spray roses with blue delphinium, as well as some foliage to compliment. The other men's buttonholes were just white and blue, and they were all finished with simple ivory ribbon.
There were also two wrist corsages for the two mums - the same white and blue flowers - on a pearl beaded bracelet.
I decorated the church within the grounds of the venue and everything was then moved over for the wedding breakfast - the two large windowsill displays went onto the top table along with the pew ends and the pedestal arrangement was moved to a doorway to mark the entrance into the reception area. I also decorated the staircase area - this was done in remembrance of family members who were no longer with them.
The top table looked amazing with all of the flowers on there and all of the foliages blended really nicely with the green coloured walls.
The tables were a mix of low and tall centrepieces - low posies quite flush to the table and tall martini vase arrangements.
Here's a little preview of the happy couple!
Congratulations to Pippa and Adam, I wish you a long and happy future together! 🧡💙
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! 💚
