This week in my Wedding Wednesday blog post series, I’m featuring flowers from a real wedding which took place last August.
Florists Hayford and Rhodes were responsible for creating the wedding flowers and the theme was quintessentially English vintage country cottage garden.
The beautiful bridal bouquet, shown above and below, consisted of Pacific Blue, Avalanche, Cool Water and Ocean Song roses with white hydrangeas, herbs and eucalyptus.
To complete the design, the stems were wrapped with lace ribbon and pearl pins were inserted.
The bridesmaid’s bouquets, which are below, were slightly smaller and also included astrantia. The stems were wrapped with cornflower dress off-cuts and diamante pins were added.
The groom’s buttonhole below was an Ocean Song rose, combined with astrantia and eucalyptus foliage.
And the ushers buttonholes were Avalanche roses with eucalyptus foliage.
In the church, there were pedestal arrangements with white delphiniums, purple hydrangeas, Ocean Song and Cool Water roses, plus seasonal foliage.
The pew ends were decorated with purple hydrangeas and finished with a cream ribbon and a trailing bow.
At the reception, the table arrangements were hand-tied bouquets placed in mirror cubes. They were created using Ocean Song, Pacific Blue, Avalanche and Cool Water roses, plus hydrangeas, astrantia, herbs and eucalyptus foliage.
And the guests were able to enjoy them after the wedding, as they were given out at the end of the night.
A cluster of roses together with astrantia and foliage was used to decorate the top of the wedding cake.
I’m sure you’ll agree that the wedding flowers are simply beautiful. I love the pink and lilac tones, and I adore astrantia…such a delicate flower.
The wedding was captured by photographer, Lucy Davenport. Please do tune in from lunchtime today to read a Q&A with Lucy.
