Garlands extending along a guest or top table are a firm favourite at weddings and provide a relaxed environment for any wedding celebration. Picking up tips on making our designs foam free and more eco-friendly has been top of my list this year and so I was delighted to join other talented florists to spend a couple of days creating and learning with Sabine Darrall.
At many of our barn venues or in marquees we have the opportunity to create stunning hanging decorations for our wedding couples. Again we now aim to make these foam free and more eco-friendly. The freshest of gathered foliages is always a good place to start and using flowers that will last through the wedding day. We usually hang these arrangements on the day of the wedding.
This gorgeous wedding has so many of our favourite things flower wall backdrop, peonies and lots of gold glitter so we were thrilled to take our team down to Curradine Barns for this amazing wedding for the lovely Louise and Rob.
CREATING THE FLOWER WALL BACKDROP AT CURRADINE BARNS
Louise had one particular request she wanted flowers to cover the wall behind the top table to create a backdrop for her wedding celebrations. So the team carefully created her dream by hanging bombastic and miss bombastic spray roses with soft lisianthus to soften her backdrop. Louise and the girls were getting ready at the Barn and so popped in en masse to check how things were going.
PEONY BOUQUETS FOR THE BRIDE AND BRIDESMAIDS
Glamour was the key to the day and nothing hits the spot more than masses of peonies for beautiful bouquets with luxe dresses and lots of gold and glitter.
CHURCH WEDDING CEREMONY
The wedding took place at Great Witley Church in Worcestershire and was worth the steep climb up the hill to reveal the most beautiful Baroque Church, noted to be the finest example in England. An abundance of gold created the most magical setting for tying the knot.
CURRADINE BARN WEDDING FLOWERS AND DECORATIONS
The gold signage and stationery continued the gold and glitter mood and was used everywhere, I just love this Order of the Day.
Lush florals in glass footed bowls were laid out on the tables with hanging flower hoops suspended from the beams over many of the tables to create the natural flower filled room for our happy couple. I just love seeing the delight on Louise’s face as she enters her dream room.
TOP TABLE FLORAL GARLAND AND FLOWER WALL BACKDROP
As the evening went on the speeches and toasts were enjoyed by all with a floral garland to the top table and the stunning flower wall backdrop. Congratulations to the new Mr and Mrs Jeffers you planned a great party for family and friends.
GOLD WEDDING CAKE, BOUQUETS TO DECORATE
We left vases to keep the bouquets looking lush around the beautiful gold wedding cake set on the gold glitter cloth.
Sparklers always add a bit of fun to the evening celebrations.
FLOWER CROWN FOR THE EVENING
If you fancy a change of look from day to evening then change your hairpiece or veil for a flower crown to be worn for the dancing.
