This gorgeous wedding was back in June this year. We worked together with Julie, the bride, to style a stunning sophisticated look for her Alrewas Hayes wedding flowers. In the grade 2 listed Queen Anne residence, Julie was after very soft pink and cream florals, we used Sweet Avalanche and Avalanche roses here.
Her bridal bouquet was a mix of Sweet Avalanche and Avalanche roses, with snippets of gyp. Captured below by Greswolde Photography.
The button holes for the men were a single Avalanche rose with a sprig of eucalyptus.
In the marquee at Alrewas Hayes we used our 1m high silver candelabra with a large arrangement of soft pink and cream roses, gyp and eucalyptus to tie in with the rest of the day. To create different levels and heights throughout the marquee we positioned candelabra on half the tables and lower footed vases with a similar mix of florals in a domed arrangement on the other tables.
Delyth and Russell were married in June this year, they wanted a relaxed summer country garden look for their flowers. The overall look was achieved by using highlights of blue hydrangea, dusky and stronger pink roses including Amnesia and Sweet Avalanche rose as well as pink lisianthus, astrantia, herbs and eucalyptus to create a ‘just picked’ country garden look.
Delyth’s bridal bouquet was a hand tied bright summer mix of blues and pinks, her bridesmaids had a smaller version for their bouquets and the young flower girls wore flower circlets made from blue hydrangeas.
The ceremony took place at Sibson church, blue hydrangeas and summer blooms filled the windowsills, archway and pew ends. At the entrance to the church we laid a rose wreath on this lovely old cart.
Country garden Wedding Flowers
The reception was in a marquee at Latimers Rest, a venue we had done a wedding shoot at last summer, the lovely country garden is a gorgeous place for a wedding reception. For the tables in the marquee we used a mix of summer flowers in cream jugs, each jug was slightly different to keep the ‘just picked’ look going. The colours ranged from blue right through to soft and deep pink. Tea lights were dotted around the table and summer mix petal confetti was sprinkled over the table cloths.Each guest received a packet of seeds as their wedding favour, the packets were all made by the bride and groom. Extra touches included thank you presents, hearts as chair backs and tables named after areas of London. To decorate the 4 tier cake we used a mix of roses. If you are choosing a simple cake, fresh flowers between the tiers add a lovely finishing touch for a Summer wedding.Are you having a Summer wedding? We’d love to hear what your plans are for your flowers.

At Passion for Flowers we love the softness of gypsophilia also well known as baby’s breath and million stars. Gypsophilia is perfect if you are looking for white wedding flowers, it can be used on its own or mixed with other flowers.
Why use gypsophilia in your wedding flowers?
As a wedding flower gyspohilia is great for filling large arrangements.As it is so cost effective gypsophilia looks great used en masse.This gorgeous wedding bouquet had a big bunch of dreamy gypsophilia and eucalyptus making a great summer bouquet. The softness of the grey green eucalyptus works well in the groom’s button hole to finish the look.
Alternatively at Passion for Flowers we like teaming gypsophilia with white avalanche in bridal bouquets, especially if the bride has chosen a lace trimmed dress as the delicate flowers look like lace.
Gypsophilia is lovely with the delicate white lisianthus and soft grey tones of eucalyptus for a summer garland or table centrepeice.Gypsophilia is the perfect filler for large scale work in churches or for wedding ceremony flowers. It looks good in bunches or mixed with other flowers here it compliments the lilac roses, spray roses and purple lisianthus.

Gypsophilia is very on trend for classic white weddings and as seen here looks amazing as the only flower at your wedding. We love the topiary trees and extravagant centrepieces filled only with gypsophilia. This simple understated flower can have a real WOW factor when used en masse.
