The vintage bouquet
A mix of beautiful pink and white Astilbe wrapped in vintage lace with a family heirloom brooch. I adore this simple and elegant bouquet. Simple to create, about 45 minutes in total but just as show-stopping as some of those that take hours.
The flower napkins
Imagine sitting down to a loved one’s wedding and finding a carefully selected flower just for you on your napkin. All these little touches make for a truly beautiful, personal wedding.
The pretty flower arch
What’s more romantic then marrying your soul mate under a beautiful flower archway? This particular arch was such a focal point in this marquee with a beautiful mix of foliage adding Hydrangea, Roses, Gypsophila, Lisianthus and trailing pearls, overall it took around four to five hours to construct.
The natural statement corsage
I love a buttonhole with visible stems tied with simple ribbon it gives a much more natural look. This corsage consists of Spray Roses, Rice Flower, Eucalyptus and Veronica.
Beautiful church pew ends
I’m a real lover of pew ends, small bunches of Gypsophila wrapped in hessian like this are so effective for your ceremony and are very cost effective, also!
The best British bouquet
There is nothing I love more than going along to my local flower farm ‘Blooming Green’ and handpicking my own flowers and foliage – the colours and seasonal varieties are spectacular! This particular bouquet of Dahlias, Sunflowers, Nigella and Sweet Peas to name a few is the perfect bouquet for an autumn wedding.
The fun farm wedding
This particular wedding reception was held on the groom’s father’s farm in a marquee. With a trailing garland along the top table framing their hessian bunting and jam jars all the way along, filled with mixed flowers and also a beautiful rose curtain serving as a backdrop behind them. It was such a feature within the wedding with lots of photos being taken in front of it.
The pomanders for the mini maids
I just adore Pomanders for the little ones. These particular ones were held by the flowergirls – perfect for those looking for a vintage feel on their big day.
The flower filled crate
I love filling crates as centrepieces, especially this one! They are such a beautiful mix of colours and the Dahlias, Delphinium, Roses and Craspedia worked so well together. Perfect for a rustic wedding.
The soft country bouquet
This is one of my favourite bouquets I have created. The mix of blowsy Peonies, blush pink Roses, Stocks, Fountain Grass and mixed foliage arranged in a large loose bouquet suited Gemma’s pretty country wedding.
