Laura and Karl were married on 16 August 2021 at Blake Hall. They chose beautiful soft pinks and whites for the bridal flowers, which included some stunning garden roses, astilbe, gyp and eucalyptus.
The bridesmaids carried more rustic bouquets of gypsophila and foliage. I'll be honest I wasn't too sure how these would come out but I actually love them! Usually when I make gyp and foliage bouquets the greenery is added last as a sort of collar around the flowers, but it looked great running through the bouquet and breaking up the white. I'll definitely make these again!
Delivered at the venue - the bride shed a tear which is always so rewarding (as long as it's happy tears!) and how cool does that leather jacket look!
Karl's buttonhole featured a white rose, astilbe, gypsophila and foliage.
There were a mix of different buttonholes for the various members of the groom's party - there were different designs for the best man, bride's dad and page boy. It's fun when the buttonholes aren't all the same!
For the ladies I made all white wrist corsages on ivory ribbon.
The ceremony area looked stunning - there was a long and low on the table which was later moved over to the top table. Two of the centrepieces framed the table on tall plinths. with gyp and foliage chair ends lining the aisle.
In addition to the long and low on the top table I added in a luscious eucalyptus garland which trailed along the full length and draped over either end.
I made showstopper arrangements of gyp for the tables on tall glass vases. The bride and groom had provided some little tealights and confetti for around the base.
I also left some flowers that I’d prepared for the cake as this arrived later than me, but The Shhh Baker tagged me in some photos once she’d finished and it looked beautiful!
Here's a quick little preview from the venue - I can't wait to see more photos!
I hope Laura and Karl had a wonderful day!
