Summer Wedding At Wroxall Abbey
Helena and Craig had a gorgeous Summer wedding in August at Wroxall Abbey, one of our regular wedding venues. Although we do a number of weddings each year at Wroxall Abbey each one is different and we love working with our brides and grooms to find the perfect look for them. Helena and Craig were looking for mainly white wedding flowers with a touch of vintage as well as elegance.
The Wedding Bouquets
Helena’s bridal bouquet was a large creamy white mix of wonderfully scented David Austin roses, freesias with snippets of gypsophila tied with ivory satin ribbon and pearls, perfect for a Summer wedding. Her five bridesmaids had a blousy bouquet of white hydrangeas each, again tied with ivory satin ribbon and pearls. The two young flower girls held a single cream rose to walk down the aisle.
White wedding flowers in the church
Wroxall Abbey has it’s own small chapel on site, Wren’s Cathedral. The lych gate leading up to the entrance of the chapel was decorated with grey willow hearts and a touch of gypsophila. This makes a lovely photo when the bride and groom leave the church. Inside the church we decorated the large stone window sills and fonts with church candles which lit up the church with romantic candle light.
White wedding flowers in the mansion house
On each of the guest tables we decorated our cream birdcages with hanging lovebirds, white freesias, roses and lisianthus and added country heart tea lights on the table On the top table we created a full length flower garland which ran the entire length of the top table. This was a mix of eucalyptus and stunning white hydrangea with touches of gypsophila. Behind the garland were hurricane vases with candles inside running the length of the table.
To tie into her birdcage table centre Helena chose our birdcage table plan to show the guests to their seats. After the wedding breakfast the guests moved into the marquee at Wroxall. The staff are usually happy to move the decorations through to the marquee for the evening, to create the entrance to the marquee Helena hired some of our bay trees.
