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!

Monday moodboard | Neon splash

Posted by Hannah.

Neon? At a wedding? Why the hell not I say. No, I’ve not lost my mind because as with everything, it’s all about how you style it. Remember those cute cacti succulents? Well that’s the kind of thing I’m talking about – little flashes of eye-popping colour among tasteful hues and accessory styling, rather than neon overkill like some kind of late 80s rave.

Bright wedding flowersTo keep it super fresh, I’d go for white and nude flowers, like Hydrangeas, Peonies and Quicksand or Menta roses. The neon could come from more florals like lime green Viburnum Opulus (Guelder rose) or Molucella, or details such as ribbon, trimmings or your choice of vessels (Plastikote spray paints and old tin cans are your friends here).

Like the green beauts up top, some blooms are so bright they almost feel neon. Coral is another option and there’s some lovely choices, most popular of which are Coral Charm or Coral Sunset peonies. Again, pairing with white or nude keeps this looking feeling fresh and it’s nice to add some brown touches through hessian and kraft paper too.

There’s lots of options for adding neon but remember that less is always more. I’d pick one neon hue and stick with it (as seen in these split moodboards) to keep it chic. Even the tiniest touch can make your tablescape pop, like place name labels or teeny stickers on paper bags for favours.
