I am back! This weekend was my first wedding of the year and it felt so good to be back doing what I love. Kate and Chris had a micro wedding with 15 people and it was beautiful. They were married in the village church opposite the family home. I created natural style Church flowers for them, a delicate flower crown and a bouquet to compliment Kate’s stunning dress.
The flowers were left decorating the church as a sign of hope for everyone to see.
“Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the most beautiful wedding flowers! I couldn’t believe how perfect they were for our style and everyone commented on how lovely they all looked.
Thank you again for being a part of our day and I’m so glad we were still able to have you.
We really had the best time, being smaller made it so special and we wouldn’t have changed a thing!”
We love travelling around the country to create weddings with stylish couples and jumped at the chance to decorate an epic barn for the wedding of Tiffany and Kris in September. A site visit is essential if we have not worked at a venue before, visiting together with Tiffany and her mum gave us the chance to see how we could bring this barn to life.
Tiiffany had clear ideas and was looking for a boho style wedding celebration with white, green, gold, blue and grey colours with a Cinderella look. As the barn is quite dark she was thinking of lots of candles, twinkling lights and white flowers to add light wherever possible. Well take a look a see how this was achieved.
Final morning preparations for button holes and corsages is always a calming task to carry out before the buzz of the wedding day.
BARN CEREMONY WITH CANDLELIGHT & ORGANIC FLORAL DESIGNS FULL OF FOLIAGE
A set up like this needs access the day before for the lighting to go up and the decor to be started. Organic foliage and floral designs decorated the beams and the ceremony tables to form a romantic backdrop to the ceremony.
The bridesmaids carried bountiful bouquets of foliage and flowers.
CEREMONY TABLE AND STAGE FLOWERS
The large stage was dressed with statement decoration including a mix of large lanterns, cylinder vases, rustic wooden tables, and cascading garlands of foliage and flowers.
ELEGANT WRIST CORSAGES
Tiffany’s Mum wore her elegant wrist corsage so well which kept her hands free for her reading.
LANTERN WEDDING CENTREPIECES
Candlelight was central to this wedding and we designed a mix of centrepeices all with a bronze gold look. These elegant lanterns were accented with delicate bronze glass bud vases with a mix of flowers and foliage from the day.
GOLD CANDELABRA WEDDING CENTREPEICES
Tall gold candelabra decorated other guest tables with a generous mix of foliage and flowers.
FULL-LENGTH TOP TABLE GARLANDS
The top table is key to any wedding celebration and is the focus of much of the day. For Tiffany and Kris we created full length top table garlands full of scented eucalyptus foliage, the softest blue hydrangea, spray roses and other blooms and textures from the day. A mix of glass cylinders and bronze gold lanterns were added to light the table and foliage chair backs to complete the look.
THE WEDDING CAKE DECORATIONS – HANGING RING & LANTERNS
So every wedding cake deserves to be centrestage and so we created a hanging ring to be suspended over the wedding cake surrounded by a masse of candles. This was the most romantic setting for Tiffany and Kris to cut their cake in front of family and friends.
Thank you so much Tiffany and Kris for allowing us to be part of your amazing wedding day. The photos captured by Ed Godden are simply stunning.
I was asked to design a bouquet for Lizzie and her girls for her recent wedding. Helen, her Mum, of Helen Eames Photography, joined us for our meeting and I was delighted to hear that the flowers then became an important part of Lizzie’s day.
WILD AND ORGANIC PINK BOUQUETS FOR BRIDE AND HER BRIDESMAIDS
Lizzie’s dress was chosen from the lovely Sophie at CocoandKate and we felt a wild organic bouquet with touches of blush pink roses, lashing of eucalyptus and highlights of the grey pink edged echivera would be the perfect choice for this stunning bride and her bridesmaids.
CUTE PINK ROSE FLOWER CROWNS FOR FLOWER GIRLS
Flower girls are known to steal the show and these two were no exception, eager to try on their pink rose flower crowns when I arrived and looking so beautiful in their gorgeous dresses and soft pink cardigans.
PINK ROSE BUD BUTTON HOLES
The boys wore pink rose bud button holes with eucalyptus and echivera to bring the look of the bridal party together.
Thank you for sharing the images Lizzie, so happy you enjoyed loved your bouquets and to Helen for capturing the day with such beauty.
Wow what a year it has been! We are now slowing down with only 2 weddings before the New Year so we thought it was time to sit back and reflect on an amazing 2014. We have loved every single wedding we have worked on this year, our brides, grooms and their families have been a pleasure to work with. We love seeing weddings come to life throughout the planning process, from the initial concept at the first consultation to the finished result on the wedding day, reliving again when we see the talented work of so many photographers, each of our weddings has been truly uniqiue.This year we have been privileged to work at some fabulous new venues with both new and established wedding suppliers and friends.
Being voted Best Wedding Florist in the West Midlands at the Wedding Industry Awards for the second year running was a real highlight for us, and we enjoyed celebrating with our team and other industry friends.
