Sarah and Carl were married on 6 July 2018 at Crabbs Barn Wedding Venue. They went for an earthy, rustic theme with neutral flowers and just a pop of colour. I used scabiosa, sweet peas, nigella, tanacetum, ammi, achillea, mint, spray roses, stocks, incredible poppy heads and a number of different grasses to achieve the look.
Sarah's bouquet was a beautiful mix of all the flowers, using mainly small flowers with no obvious focal to keep with the natural, rustic theme. The little pops of colour really added something extra to the bouquet and I think the grasses look amazing!
Sarah only had one bridesmaid who carried a smaller version of her bouquet, with all the same flowers and foliages. I just love those giant poppy heads!
Sarah and her maid also wore flower crowns for the day - we kept the designs fairly simple so as not to be overwhelming, with mostly foliage going round and a grouping of flowers to one side. They were finished with twine so they could be adjusted to the size of their heads. Without the wearer there while making a crown it is quite tricky to get the size right. However, my mum was out watering the garden while I was designing so I used her as my model - she has a pin head and I have a giant head (lol!) so I designed the crowns so that they were too big for her but too small for me - I figured that was the best way to get them right!!
All packed up and ready for delivery!
This wedding featured a large number of buttonholes and these were so fun to make and looked gorgeously rustic all laid out together. I used an eryngium head, scabious pod, dried lavender, dried wheat, euc parvi and a little bit of one of the grasses. There were also a few corsages for the ladies which were pretty much the same with the addition of a white spray rose head.
Sarah and Carl went for a personalised box for their top table. I've used these boxes a few times now and they look so great when full of flowers and make for a lovely keepsake after the wedding. You can get them on eBay - please message me if you would like the link. In this particular box I designed the arrangement in a meadow style, with lots of lovely little flowers all arranged really naturally. The table centrepieces featured a complimentary grouping of flowers arranged into a different gin bottle that the bride and groom had been saving up (though they tell me they didn't drink all of the gin themselves!)

Wishing Sarah and Carl a lifetime of happiness together 💕
