Blue and cream flowers are a gorgeous choice for a wedding and perfectly suited Michelle and Jonathan’s style at their country house wedding at Coombe Abbey.
BLUE HYDRANGEAS AND CREAM ROSES – WEDDING BOUQUETS
The bride chose a blousy wedding bouquet with blue hydrangea and cream roses, I love how the colours were picked up in the porcelain plate.
CREAM ROSE FLOWER GIRL POSY
For the flower girls we created an easy to carry cream rose posy finished with cream ribbon. Small posy wands are just perfect for small hands.
CREAM HYDRANGEAS AND ROSE BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS
The older bridesmaids carried cream hydrangea and rose bouquets finished with satin ribbon. As you can see these were also admired by the young flower girls.
BLUE AND CREAM BUTTON HOLES
For the groom we created a soft blue and cream button hole with a snippet of hydrangea and a cream rose perfectly in keeping with his bride’s blue and cream bouquet.The rest of the boys sported cream button holes to match the bridesmaids’ bouquets.
DISPLAY BOUQUETS IN VASES AT YOUR RECEPTION
If you are looking for somewhere to display your bouquets at your reception then do ask your florist for vases, here we left a vase by the guest book so guests could see the bouquets more closely and most importantly on a hot summer day the bouquets stayed lovely and fresh.
For the bouquet we created a relaxed hand tied bouquet of pink, white, green and blue hydrangeas with touches of pink astilbe, veronica, wax flowers and seeded eucalyptus. Tied with vintage lace and a brooch.
WHITEWASHED WOODEN CRATE CENTREPIECE
For the centrepiece we used a wooden crate (available from The Wedding of my Dreams) and painted it white. We used similar flowers to the bouquet for a relaxed look. We included mixed colours of hydrangeas, blush pink roses, wax flower, astilbe and eucalyptus.
The buttonhole was an amnesia rose, snippet of blue hydrangea and eucalyptus tied with rustic twine.
The place setting shown on the green napkin was a small bunch including a snippet of blue hydrangea, blush pink rose, eucalyptus and wax flower tied with twine. These make pretty place settings for the ladies.
This mix of flowers would suits a relaxed wedding, perhaps at a barn or in a marquee during the Spring or Summer. This mix of colours are also perfect if you have chosen a watercolour theme for your wedding.
FAIRYTALE BOUQUET – WHITE WEDDING BOUQUET
Another of our bouquets were also featured within the magazine, this white wedding bouquet is hand tied with lace. We used a mix of white winter flowers for this bouquet including white ranunculus, white hydrangeas and white roses.
