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.
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.
