Danielle and Philip were married on 9 April 2022 at The Tudor Barn, Belstead. They chose pretty pinks and whites for their flowers, with just a touch of peach. I used roses, spray roses, stocks, astilbe, gyp, ranunculus and eucalyptus. Danielle's beautiful bouquet was finished with simple ivory ribbon.
The four bridesmaids carried smaller versions of Danielle's bouquet, also finished with ivory ribbon kept neat to the stems.
Philip's buttonhole was a grouping of small flowers to compliment the bridal bouquet - pink and peach spray roses with gypsophila and eucalyptus. The other men wore smaller buttonholes of a pink spray roses with gyp and foliage.
For the ladies we made wrist corsages on ribbon, with flowers to match the rest of the arrangements.
I'd never been to The Tudor Barn before but it is a lovely venue - the beams in the ceremony room were beautiful and mean you don't really need to add too much decoration to this area.
We also decorated the staircase that leads up from the reception area to the ceremony room - we wound simple garlands of eucalyptus around the bannister, which looked stunning but still left access to the handrail.
Danielle and Philip did their own centrepieces but we dressed the top table with mixed bud vases, all provided by the bride and groom, with eucalyptus trailing between them for a complete design.
Such a stunning venue!
The cake was provided by the bride's stepsister, who runs Cakes from Rachel, and we provided individual flowers and sprigs of foliage for decorating. We always wire and tape each stem - the wire allows you to manipulate the flower and the tape stops the stem from touching the cake so as to keep it food safe.
A few little previews of the big day from the insanely talented Elizabeth Jayne Photography - just beautiful!
I hope Danielle and Philip had a wonderful day!
