Lulworth Castle Wedding….

This Lulworth Castle wedding was all about wild textured foliage and copper… First of all my bride Danielle asked for a show stopper, over the top, big as her head bouquet… I could only oblige by combining plump hydrangea heads large white dahlia, peonies, rustic wax flower, blousy spray roses & a medley of woodland and glossy tropical foliage…

Awesome rose gold bridesmaids dresses were the perfect look for these wild textured bouquets, each styled slightly different for an eclectic look…

The church was packed with romantic candle light & textured glossy & woodland foliage everywhere… tied from the pew ends along the aisle & on every window ledge creating a tropical wonder as you enter the church…

After the ceremony guests where ushered to Lulworth castle where they were greeted with champagne on the steps… as you enter guests were further wowed by a luxury floral arrangement with twinkly fairy lights  & romantic candles all nestled on a bed of woodland moss for an enchanted look…

To finish this awesome look the bride collected lots of eclectic copper terrariums, candle holders, bud vases & bull dogs for a her table centrepieces which where packed with blousy white blooms & tropical foliage…

Tropical Pineapple Wedding Dorset…

I absolutely adored this wedding… Not only was it fun to plan but I got to use awesome tropical glossy leaves which I haven’y used in years… Laurel and Ricky are huge travellers and have spent lots of time in tropical locations so of course they wanted their travels embraced in their wedding…

They hired lots of rustic wooden ladders with hanging eddison bulbs from a Dorset wedding hire company and had these hung across the barn ceiling…

Huge trailing foliage garlands where hung from each ladder using tropical glossy leaves and textured forest ferns. I couldn’t resist including some hanging pineapples with hot pink orchids for a pop of colour…

The tables had a 50-50 mix… The lower lying arrangements had log slices, pineapples and quirky cacti floral jars… the taller wow factor arrangements had slim glass vases with an explosion of tropical foliage complementing the hanging foliage.

And finally Laurels awesome tropical bouquet with woodland ferns, hot pink gloriosa, orchids, nude roses and giant lotus pods. It was really nice to get creative with this one and create something a little bit different!

Sopley lake garden wedding…

Now this is one of my weddings well worth giving a shout… I love all kinds of colour variations but I must admit I don’t often get to do a wedding as vibrant as this Sopley Lake wedding… Kelly and Stuart came down from London to have a natter about their wedding flowers and their brief was pretty clear from start… ‘It’s got to be vibrant Clair, I want colour everywhere!’ Well I think we nailed the brief don’t you…

All eyes were on these awesome floral swings provided by Coastal tents along with their sale cloth tent… as you walked in all you saw were these giant floral displays hanging from the ceiling with enough vibrant flowers to pack a punch… I was completely in love with the look!

With all attention paid to the floral swings Kelly wanted to keep things quite simple on the rustic wooden trestle tables with quirky beer bottles filled with a few stems of vibrant flowers from the chosen theme…

After the ceremony these cute little floral jam jars were re-located to the tent and used to decorate the top table chairs. If only every chair in the room had these, it looked really indulgent and added even more vibrancy to the overall look!

To finish Kelly requested a whopper of a bouquet and boy did she get it, I thoroughly enjoyed creating this little bad boy… a little bit wild, lots of textured foliage and just look at that colour combination! You couldn’t be a shy bride walking down the aisle with this fella!
