Woodland Wedding

I so enjoyed creating the floral designs for Carly and David’s early spring wedding as they chose a natural woodland-inspired style with burgundy flowers, masses of trailing foliage and other natural materials, such as pine cone, seed heads and berries.

Blue & White Wedding

Gabriella and Jaime’s wedding took place in the beautiful gardens at The William Cecil in Stamford. Luckily it was a gorgeous late summer day which enabled them to enjoy an outdoor ceremony in the wedding pavilion. The couple chose a simple colour scheme of blue and white, which looked stunning – see what you think….

Flowers at Hellens Manor

Such a delight to attend last spring’s ‘The Foral Escape’ workshop. It’s never too late to learn new skills and styles and so I was excited to be joining other wedding florists in being tutored by the fabulous and talented Sabine Darrall.

Do read on to hear more about the designs we created together and see some of the fabulous photos by Naomi Kenton Photography, who joined us for the styled shoot at the end of our time at Hellens Manor. More can be seen in my photo gallery too….

White Wedding...

Caroline and Chris chose fantastic historic venues for their special day and I was so excited to be creating the floral designs for them. Their preference was for natural country styles incorporating plenty of green and silver-grey foliage to offset the all-white flowers – simply prefect!

Summer Sunflowers...

Natalie and Alex chose an awesome venue in the Rutland countryside for their summer wedding. Their ceremony took place in the private chapel at Exton Park, followed by a marquee reception in the beautiful grounds. The setting was perfect for the natural-looking floral designs I was asked to create, which incorporated plenty of trailing foliage and bright golden sunflowers!

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!
