Bloom Fleuriste for Hannah & Dan at Cripps Barn

I’m so thrilled to share Hannah and Dan’s gorgeous wedding today, for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I got to try some new (to me) designs of hanging gypsophila bombs and table centres in our new handmade wooden boxes. And secondly, the day was shot beautifully by the talented Naomi Kenton whose swoonworthy fine art photography is a complete treat for the eyes. Doesn’t Hannah look so effortlessly elegant in her lace gown? And I love a groom who rocks a beard on his wedding day. What a cute couple. So without further ado…

Bloom Fleuriste for Katie & Ben at Compton Verney

When Katie and Ben told me they were struggling to find a florist with a natural yet modern style, I knew we were going to get on well as it was the exact same problem that inspired me to become a florist during my own wedding planning. Katie had firm likes and dislikes on flowers, which I really welcome generally as it helps to narrow down the options and really understand the look clients want to achieve.

The palette was pink, lots of pink, from the palest blush to the brightest cerise. Katie wanted unusual flowers among some classics like David Austin roses and eucalyptus, in a loose natural style that felt stylish and unique. Katie and Ben’s floral designs really show the impact of a single colour palette, particularly against the stark white backdrop of Adam Hall at Compton Verney. Variety, tone and texture are particularly important when working with a limited palette, and I maxed this out with a cocktail of fluffy, furry, spiky, soft, feathery and whispy blooms in many shades of pink. Finally, I added David Austin’s hot pink ‘Kate’ rose for a special touch. Delicious.

Here’s a small selection of Katie and Ben’s photos, courtesy of Gina Print Photography. Doesn’t she look sensational? And how lovely are the soft pink Hobbs bridesmaids dresses? They’re a popular choice this year,

Bloom Fleuriste for Emma & Nick at Hampton Manor

-11

IMG_5364

Back in May we had the pleasure of designing flowers for Emma and Nick who were tying the knot at beautiful Hampton Manor in Hampton-in-Arden, Warwickshire. In addition to flowers with a scheme of fresh white and green, we provided prop hire of our exclusive LOVE lights and firefly lanterns. We’ve just seen the photos, taken by talented duo Hannah and Toby of Red on Blonde and couldn’t wait to share them with you (with a few of our amateur shots thrown in too!)

White hydrangea wedding

When we met with Emma and Nick in January, they had a pretty clear idea for their wedding flowers – a really fresh feel with lots of fluffy white hydrangeas. Emma wanted to keep the bouquets chic and simple with hydrangea only so we sourced the most cloud-like ones we could find, which we hear many of their guests mistook for paper as the petals were so perfect. Flower girl Grace carried a white hydrangea pomander to tie in with Emma and her maids.

Emma and Nick opted for something a little different for the boys’ buttonholes – delicate lily of the valley, which we supported with wax flower to help them hold up in the heat, finished with natural twine stems.

The couple chose the beautiful Birches room to hold their ceremony and we marked the entrance by filling two personalised wooden crates (handmade by their friend) with an abundance of hydrangea, avalanche roses, snapdragons, butterfly thalpsi, eucalyptus and broom. Inside, our stunning LOVE letters took centre stage at the end of the aisle, which we lined with our popular firefly lanterns. These striking props were relocated into the main building later on to add atmosphere throughout the afternoon and evening.

We decorated the ceremony table with a collection of vintage glass vessels and unique vases, including our favourite white swan, and they were enjoyed further in the dining room and bar later on. TIP! Reuse & relocate your flowers wherever possible throughout the day to get the most for your money.

Elegant tall candelabras styled up the tables in the modern dining room (available to hire from us), which we covered in more hydrangea, bombastic roses, chins and broom. We added little floral touches to the cake and guest book tables, and spruced up the table plan with Avalanche roses. We thought it all looked beautiful, but more importantly, so did Emma and Nick, and their guests. Smiles all round!
