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…

Monday moodboard | Coral charm

Posted by Hannah.

We see so many wonderful colours at the flower markets but there’s one that always manages to catch our bleary-eyed attention however early it is. Delightful, delicious coral. Chicer than orange, less girly than pink, coral is a versatile colour that looks stunning at summer weddings when Coral Charm Peonies and eye-popping Dahlias are out in all their glory. But there’s options at other times of the year too, with cute-as-a-button Ranunculus and salmony Amaryllis.

Coral and navy is a colour match made in heaven, so we’d kit the boys in slim fit midnight blue suits with sharp white shirts, and girls in flirty netted dresses in inky blue. We’d head to J Crew for our own frock and opt for this whimsical beauty with a tulle ball gown skirt. We would decorate the barn venue with crisp white bunting (coming soon to our prop hire shop) and pretty blush balloons, and display flowers in vintage bottles and jars for a natural, relaxed look. Simple, fresh and gorgeous.
