Weddding’s in the South West

Living in the South west is really rather marvellous when you get to arrange flowers, especially wedding flowers in such fabulous places. I was a great fan of this wedding as the Bride was a florist {we tried not to get too nervous!} She had gorgeous taste in flowers and knew what feel she was wanting for the day. Though equally was happy to hand over the reins and tell us to get on with it!

The Bridal Bouquet

The colour scheme for the day was a mixture of soft grey’s, greens & ivory. I loved the steel grey of the Brunia {bobbly type flower} and the deep creamy white of the dahlia. The bride also had some green amaranthus {soft green dangly flower} in her bouquet which added another texture and feel to it all.

The gentlemen’s buttonhole

How fun are these buttonholes! The green fluffy part is actually a variety of carnation! {I know I know} They are called ‘Green Trick’. We added some brunia and berries to finish it off, though don’t forget the twine!

A rather sumptuous floral affair.

The bride lives over in Australia and came back to get married where she grew up, the reception was held in a marquee in the back garden of her Grandmothers house. With views overlooking the fields outback and the sun shining, it was a glorious venue.

How’s this for a creation?

We made this central ball of flowers to hang between the tables and dance-floor. Filling it with the vintage green hydrangea and norma jean roses, it was a lovely focal point. The ceiling of the marquee was quite low and this flowery ball helped in creating a very warm feeling.

Flowers for the tables

The marquee had a very intimate feel to it, with the flowers for the table keeping in with the fresh and subtle style.
