So last weekend was epic we had an amazing time decorating Longbourn Barn for an amazing couple Megan and Tom. Longbourn Barn is a real authentic barn, set in the beautiful English countryside. The barn is a blank canvas, very rustic with a french feel to it as you drive up the driveway. This is the second time we have been fortunate enough to be at the barn this summer and were just blown away by all the beauty.
These are just a taster of the photos by the talented photographers.We cant wait to see the full photos including the epic look inside the barn using rose gold stands with statement blooms and epic top table flowers as well as lots of surprises.
With all our love and huge congratulations to Megan and Tom. xxx
Megan chose an elegant style for her maids and her flowers, blousy hydrangeas with a dusting of eucalyptus to keep the look cool on a hot day and a trailing bouquet of blush sweet avalanche roses, avalanche roses and blousy hydrangea finished with trailing ivy as a nod to her beautiful baby girl Ivy. Megan is a very lucky girl as you will see she surprised everyone with a change of dress after her church wedding before going into a fully decorated barn and delicious gourmet meal.
As winter is on it’s way we thought we’d share with you one of our all time favourite winter wonderland weddings. This winter wonderland wedding had a black, white and silver colour palette with a hint of sparkle. We did this wedding back in the winter of 2012 and still love this classic timeless look.
FLOWERS USED AT THIS WINTER WONDERLAND WEDDING
We used white flowers with highlights of black, including frilly honeymoon tulips, white gypsophila, black and white anemones and white hydrangeas. To bring in the silver and sparkle elements to the décor we used mercury silver vases, white and silver branches / twigs as well as fir cones to bring a natural winter look to the tables.
I just love weddings with lots of details and personal touches. Steffi and Dan came down with their families to meet me and tell me about the Pride and Prejudice inspired wedding they were planning just perfect for the setting in The Cloisters at Coombe Abbey.
I loved the idea of incorporating The Second World War ideas and bringing in both their personalities to create a very personal and memorable wedding day truly reflecting them as a couple.
WHITE PEONY BOUQUET – WHITE WEDDING FLOWERS
A white peony bouquet was created to give Steffi the romantic look she was after.
WHITE HYDRANGEA BOUQUETS – WHITE WEDDING FLOWERS
For the bridesmaids we chose fluffy hdrangea bouquets and added ribbon to match their beautiful vintage dresses. I just love the stylish look finished with pearl bracelets.
WHITE ROSE BUTTON HOLES
Dan looked dashing in his Union Jack bow tie teamed with a white rose button hole and pocket square.
WEDDING CEREMONY – CANDELABRA LINING THE AISLE
The room was enhanced with silver candelabra draped with pearls lining the aisle for a romantic setting for the wedding ceremony.
CANDELABRA WEDDING CENTREPIECES – WHITE WEDDING FLOWERS
The magestic candelabra were set at the end of the top table and we added a floral ring of pure white flowers including hydrangeas, peonies, white garden roses, delphiniums and tulips perfect for a May wedding. The fireplace provides a great backdrop and needs opulent flowers on the top table. A large centre piece was created and we added vases of flowers, tea lights and stacks of books collected by the bride.
The guest tables had books for the guests, they had been asked their favourite book in the invitation and the bride had searched for the relevant books. Vases of flowers filled the space on the tables and the elegant candlelight completed the look.
