Charlotte and Chirs were married in May this year, their wedding was held at Tanworth in Arden Church and then the reception over the road at The Bell country pub. Charlotte and Chirs wanted a relaxed feeling to their wedding with a country look using natural wedding flowers.
Natural Wedding Bouquet
For Charlotte’s bridal bouquet we created a natural just picked style bouquet using purple lisianthus, purple veronica, white peonies, astrantia, lavender, scented freesias, lavender, craspedia and eucalyptus. Charlotte’s bouquet handle was wrapped with an off cut of lace from her wedding dress. The overall look was a relaxed, purple, white and yellow bouquet which reflected the style for the whole wedding.
Natural Bridesmaids Bouquets
The bridesmaids had a lovely round bouquet of white gypsophila, tied with a hessian wrap and finished off with a bit of sparkle from the brooches bought by Charlotte.
Quirky Natural Button Holes
For the button holes and corsages we made a mix of different button holes all using flowers from the day so they tied in. We used craspedia, astilbe, rosemary, lavender, freesias, gypsophila and ranunculus. Each button hole stem was tied with rustic twine.
Natural Wedding Flowers In A Country Church
At the entrance to Tanworth in Arden Church are two old gates, the guests walk past these gates before they enter the church. We tied two hand tied bunches to the church gates to welcome guests. Within the church we hung pew ends from the pews and created large natural arrangements in giant silver milk churns which belonged to Charlotte. They looked stunning at the front of the church.
Natural Wedding Flowers In A Country Pub
For the reception Charlotte, Chris and their guests walked over the road to The Bell, a lovely country pub which they had exclusive use of.
The wedding table plan was made from wooden crates and blackboard buckets filled with potted herbs. These are all available from our sister company The Wedding of my Dreams, see our step buy step guide showing how to make a blackboard bucket table plan.
For the guest tables we ran hessian runners down the length of the tables, Charlotte and Chis had been collecting a range of different recycled glass bottles, ink wells and tiny mercury silver vases we filled these with delicate flowers and placed on top of wooden tree slices for the table centres. The table number cards were displayed in our rustic heart table card holders and placed in one of the larger bottles.
Polaroid photos for place names
Charlotte and Chis had a great idea for their guests place names, they used scrabble letters and took polaroid photos of their guests names next to something that represented that guest! These polaroids were placed on each guests place setting and they could take them home as a lovely reminder of the wedding.
The candy buffet was another big feature at the wedding, the frame was created from wooden crates and guest could help themselves to sweets from the glass sweet jars using scoops, scooping them into the purple paper bags.
What is your favourite detail from this wedding? We love the polaroid photos for guests place settings.
