Dusky roses...

Alice and Bav’s beautiful wedding took place at favourite venue Bassmead Manor Barns in early summer. The sun shone and it was a gorgeous day!

Their chosen colour palette was a stunning mix of dusky pink roses with foliage in shades of green and grey, mixed with other flowers in white/ivory and touches of gold in the decorations – perfect for their ‘classic English vintage’ style.

Down Memory Lane...

Laura & James’s beautiful autumn wedding took place in the fabulous countryside setting of Bassmead Manor Barns, perfect for their preferred informal rustic style. They wanted to keep the floral designs quite simple to suit the venue, but colour was very important with Laura choosing a mix of dusky mauve and lilac shades (perfect for autumn!) with cream and ivory. Roses were the perfect choice for this colour scheme, mixed with masses of the couple’s favourite gypsophila. The dusky shades also gave the flower designs a vintage feel, with favourite rose varieties including Mentha, Ocean Song and Memory Lane...

Rustic Barn Wedding

I always love the opportunity to do something a little different, so creating the natural-looking designs for Katie and Joe’s winter wedding was a real joy and shows what you can do with a mix of fabulous foliage!

A Country Wedding

Such a gorgeous late spring wedding in the stunning setting of Bassmead Manor Barns - I was really delighted to have the opportunity to create the floral designs for Sophie and Stuart's country wedding.

The couple’s preference was for natural style flower designs that did not look too regimented and with lots of texture and ‘spriggy bits’ and foliage to offset the beautiful flowers – definitely my sort of wedding! If this is the sort of style you love too then do take a peek at my featured gallery where more of the designs are now on show…

Spring Wedding

Ooh I do love a spring wedding – always a good way to start the year and the whole ‘new beginnings’ feel seems to be very appropriate! It’s a really good idea to embrace all those beautiful spring flowers too as many of them are not available in the summer months, so your flowers will definitely help to make your wedding stand out.

Steph and Matt were keen on the idea of simple flowers designs in a natural style and incorporating plenty of seasonal materials. They chose plenty of white and ivory flowers offset by fresh green foliage and mixed with sky blue and touches of bright yellow to bring the scheme alive. I’m sure you’ll agree the results were fabulous!

A Tipi Wedding!

What could be better than a wedding at Normanton Church on Rutland Water on a gorgeous summer’s day…. followed by a tipi reception in a beautiful countryside setting! I was so delighted to be asked to help with the flowers for Sarah and James’s special day, particularly as I had previously been the wedding florist for James’s sister Amy.

Stunning Sunflowers!

Sadie and Jay’s gorgeous wedding took place in the amazing setting of Bassmead Manor Barns, which is surrounded by open countryside making it the perfect place for a country/rustic styled wedding. I really loved working on the flowers for this wedding in order to get the colours just right, as Sadie chose such a bold and vibrant scheme, mixing golden yellow sunflowers with coral Miss Piggy roses and antirrhinums, bright coral hypericum berries, dusky Mentha roses and touches of dainty gypsophila which helped to give the designs a rustic feel.

Vintage Styling...

Are you a romantic at heart and thinking of a timeless look for your wedding style? Then a vintage-inspired look could be the one for you – think bunting and lace; mismatched crockery or vintage teapots; cut glass vases and flickering candlelight….

And of course, for your flowers, what could be better than velvety roses, dainty daisies and gypsophila, scented stocks and freesias – all in gorgeous dusky shades offset by trailing gypsophila!

But don’t feel limited in your colour choices, as pops of bright colour can work just as well with retro styling!

Dusky Roses

Richard and Bryony’s wedding took place in the beautiful church of Saint John the Baptist in Barnack – my first time decorating this church, but hopefully not the last! Given the height of the church, tall displays of flowers in the couple’s chosen colours of dusky pink and cappuccino with cream and ivory were the best way to make the flowers stand out and set the tone for their special day.

Country Garden Styling

Are you hoping to create a relaxed Country Garden look for your wedding? This style is great if you are a couple who would prefer an informal/ laid back feel for your celebrations and it’s not a difficult one to achieve if you get your planning right. Think about the sort of flowers that grow in English country gardens, gathered together in a natural ‘freshly picked’ style to create pretty posies and informal table centres.
