Molly and Frazer held their ceremony and wedding reception on 25 May 2019 at Pleshey village hall. With orange as their focal colour they went for a selection of beautiful bright flowers, following a gathered, wildlfower style. I created a bouquet for the bride, hair pieces and buttonholes, and then a stunning arch with hanging geometric shapes which they used as a backdrop for their outdoor ceremony.
The bride wanted something really dainty and delicate for her flower crown - I used gypsophila and limonium to create this, with a few daisies dotted throughout. I then finished the crown with twine so it could be easily adjusted.
Molly's maid of honour also wore flowers in her hair, in the form of a comb. I kept this mostly white so it would match with Molly's, with just a little bit of the orange colour peeking through.
The men's buttonholes featured succulents with helichrysum, scabiosa stellata and a selection of foliage.
There were also a couple of smaller versions for the younger groomsmen.
The arch for the ceremony backdrop was so much fun to make! I set it up the day before the wedding so I was a little concerned about the flowers lasting ok but I managed to hide some water vials amongst the foliage so they had a water source throughout the day. I set it up under this stretch tent in the playing field so my photos aren't great but it was moved outside for the actual ceremony - you can just see it in the background of one of the pro photos posted below.
Molly and Frazer spotted these geometric shapes hanging up in my studio when they came for their final consultation and had the great vision to hang these from my rose gold metal arch with some flowers on them to decorate. I then suggested the soft ruscus garland which I would wrap around the frame in an asymmetric style to hide the mechanics of the shapes and just to finish off the design.
Here's a little preview of the stunning professional photos by Three Flowers Photography - I just love all the colours!
I hope the happy couple had a wonderful day! 🧡
