Continuing my blog post series, Wedding Wednesday, today I’m featuring wedding flowers from another real wedding.
The happy couple are Nick and Gemma, and they got married in June 2010 at Longueville Manor in Jersey.
The wedding flowers, with a white and green colour palette, were created by the manor’s in-house florist, with styling by Lucy Bloomfield.
Gemma opted for an ‘over the arm’ bouquet, which included peonies and gypsophila, with the bridesmaids’ bouquets being made purely of gypsophila.
Other white flowers used during the ceremony and reception included hydrangeas, spray roses, freesias, lysimachia, trachelium, bouvardia, chrysanthemums and marguerite daisies.
It was a photographer’s dream to photograph. So many lovely details and lots of flowers everywhere!
Gemma wanted so much of the day to be decorated with things natural to Jersey – lavender was thrown instead of confetti, flowers from the garden of the venue and all the vegetables eaten during the meal were grown in the walled garden of the manor too.
Here are some more of Jemma’s photographs of this beautiful wedding…
Personally, I love the way the wedding was styled. Those little touches that make all the difference…from the glass cloches, vintage teacups and suitcases, to the wooden crates and bicycle.
And the umbrellas hanging from the marquee ceiling certainly added a bit of drama to the space.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing Nick & Gemma’s wedding today…whether you’re planning your own special day or simply looking at ways to arrange flowers in your home.
