The garden marquee at Birtsmorton Court can be styled for your wedding, as a regular Birtsmorton Court wedding florist we have decorated this marquee many times but this was one of our favourites. When your couple asks you for a rustic woodland top table we get excited, we have lots of woodland props and vases available for styling and loved creating this rustic setting for a spring wedding. Tree slices along the top table, terracotta pots and glass jars/bottles with blooms including roses, ranunculus, broom with ivy gave a soft and calming look to the room. Dotted along the table were various rustic wooden tea light holders and the table numbers were held up by tiny tree stump card holders.

The bouquet contained the most scented of David Austin roses and was a joy to create.
