As you may be aware we have recently changed to a new blog (when we relaunched our website) this means many of our older but still very popular blog posts are in our archives. If you haven’t had time to scroll through our archives don’t worry, from time to time we repost the most popular blog posts on here for you to see.
This post is filled with spring inspiration, with a blush pink wedding bouquet and flower arch. The delicate blush pink florals used in the garland and bouquet would look stunning and could be incorporated into your wedding if you are getting married in the spring.
BLUSH PINK WEDDING INSPIRATION
As part of the love inspired shoot for Rock My Wedding back in January we created a delicate archway garland to frame the bride, we kept the foliage and flowers whimsical wispy and delicate to complement the beautiful lace wedding dress. We used delicate foliage including pieris with spring catkins as a base for the garland and then wired in the softest pale pink tulips, lisianthus and scented narcissus.
BLUSH PINK WEDDING BOUQUET & FLOWER ARCH
The small delicate blush pink bridal bouquet posy was a spring mix of narcissi, ranunculus, palest blush pink lisianthus and snippets of delicate blush pink broom hand tied with textured ribbon with a blush pink satin overlay, finished with a bow. This mix is perfect for a blush pink spring wedding.
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.
Emma and Nathan chose Hogarths Hotel to tie the knot. They planned a gorgeous day with a colour scheme of soft muted pinks, cream and navy for the girls dresses and we created a romantic look with a mix of soft flowers in muted pinks and creams.
CANDELABRA CENTREPIECES HOGARTHS HOTEL
The tables looked amazing with large silver candelabra draped with pearls and a lavish arrangement of blousy roses including cream and dusky pink roses, scented freesias, astrantia, astilbe (feathery) in soft pink, gypsophila as a delicate filler and small touches of pittosporum.
When I first met Sarah and Cam I knew we would all get along famously and that we could help them create a beautiful wedding at Ettington Park.The moment they showed me their travel inspired Save The Date’s on a luggage tag I loved them. They met and got engaged on a plane so the travel idea was just perfect. The brand colours for their wedding of coral, mint and peach with grey, were great to work with and we highlighted garden roses in soft peach tones,ranunculus and the grey tones of eucalyptus, brunia and lamb’s ears with rustic touches.
PEACH CREAM AND GREY BRIDAL BOUQUET
Sarah had chosen a gorgeous dreamy dress and knew the style of bouquet she wanted for her peach, cream and grey bridal bouquet. We chose a mix of David Austin garden roses in peach and cream with snippets of grey brunia and cream ranunculus finished with hessian and heart buttons.
PEACH & MINT GREEN BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS
The bridesmaids wore navy dresses which we teamed with bouquets in a mix of peach and mint green, again finished with hessian and twine. The bouquets were created with a mix of David Austin peach roses, Bloom chrysanthemums, wax flower and soft lambs ears for texture and the perfect mint green tone.
PEACH ROSE BUTTONHOLES ON A SLATE TILE
Cam gave out the peach rose buttonholes presented on a slate tile to the bridal party.
ETTINGTON PARK WEDDING CEREMONY – FRESH PETALS & SILVER LANTERNS
The ceremony room at Ettington Park was full of fresh rose petals to line the aisle and soft candelight from the silver lanterns to herald Sarah’s arrival for the ceremony. I love the date on the ceremony table with jars with succulents in just the perfect shade of mint green. The sun came out for some wonderful photos at Ettington Park.
ETTINGTON PARK WEDDING – PRETTY PAPER LANTERNS WITH PEACH & MINT GREEN FLOWERS
In the Long Gallery the party continued and Sarah and Cam were keen to add extra lighting and interest in the room, the pretty paper lanterns and lights looked wonderful and added a fairytale look to the space. The tables were filled with glass vases and apothecary bottles in mint green to create a light look and feel to the tables, flowers were chosen in peach and cream with dashes of mint green foliage.
ROSEMARY PLACE SETTINGS
A sprig of English rosemary completed the place settings for each guest. Did you spot the plane on the gorgeous menu, Cam and Sarah first met on a plane and Cam proposed on a plane so it was a key element to their day!
As soon as we heard about Justine’s Ian Stuart dress we knew we had to create a perfect bouquet to set it off; we agreed on a cream and nude bouquet with an abundance of quicksand roses, ranunculus, snippets of astrantia. Justine was overjoyed with the florals for the day and her cream and nude roses bridal bouquet. We feel it worked wonderfully with her statement dress totally in keeping with the elegant, romantic look.
For the bridesmaids we created blousy white hydrangea bouquets to link with the softness of the brides Ian Stuart dress.
WALTON HALL WEDDING FLOWERS ~ CEREMONY URNS WITH AN ABUNDANCE OF GREEN & NUDE FLORALS
Walton Hall Wedding Flowers and decorations are always elegant and in keeping with this gorgeous venue. We met Justine and Andy at the National Wedding Show and they fell in love with our rustic inspired urns and table decorations and we worked closely with them to design the florals for the ceremony urns with an abundance of green and nude florals. Eucalyptus, hydrangea, lisianthus, viburnum opulus or guelder rose with quicksand roses toned beautifully with the elegant mercury silver candlesticks and elegance of Walton Hall.
WALTON HALL WEDDING FLOWERS ~ ELEGANT TABLE CENTREPIECES
At Walton Hall it is key to use elegant table centrepieces, here with some rustic textures and soft tones of flowers, we combined mercury silver hurricane vases for the elegance with a soft mix of hydrangea, ranunculus, anemones, guelder roses as well as quicksand roses. The urns for the ceremony were later re-purposed in the alcoves to be enjoyed during the wedding breakfast. Justine loves candles and we had filled the fireplace, tables and windowsills with a mix of mercury candlesticks and tea lights, another elegant touch.
THANK YOU FLOWERS IN JUGS
The mum’s always appreciate a thank you gift and florals are especially welcome. Justine and Andy chose thank you flowers in jugs, keeping with their elegant, rustic wedding look, the jugs can be used again and again and kept as a reminder of a lovely wedding day.
Thank you Danielle for such gorgeous photos, we always love working with you. If you are looking for a florist for your Walton Hall wedding we would love to hear from you.
