Hand picked country wedding flowers…

An amazing selection of hand picked country garden flowers home grown right here in Dorset. Such vibrant colours contrasting against vivid green bridesmaids dresses. The relaxed feel of this Bournemouth wedding was perfect for this style. The ceremony was held in a tradtional church with the main event in a marquee at Holton Lee. This rural location allowed both me and the bride to put together the best of what summer has to offer. Home grown country garden flowers… a combination of Sunflowers, Cosmos, Knifofia, Celosia, Corn flower, Echinops, Sweet peas, Ammi, Crocosmia and soft floaty asparagus fern. My brides only requests were bright colours and sunflowers. Sometimes its great to be given free rein on what you create letting your imagination run wild on possibilities and combinations. This has to be one of my favourites so far this year. Congratulations Antonia & Luke, I’m glad the sun was shinning for you and you both had an awesome day!

A new design for rustic wedding flowers…

I love creating new designs using things you find in nature… A simple but very effective top table arrangement… Lichen covered tree branch with a few holes drilled here and there with test tubes filled to the brim with rustic wedding flowers such as: memory lane rose, scented lilac and fritillarea. Tea lights are nestled amongst grey talandsia moss finishing the look.

Dorset wedding fair at farmer palmer…

Dorset wedding fair at farmer palmer… On a very wet and windy day in Dorset a lone field stood with several marquess…. People scurried from their cars to get shelter and the wedding fair exploded!  I had such a good time and felt exhausted after chatting to so many new brides. I was thrilled to show case some of my favourite woodland designs to you all…. A scrummy combination of forest greenery and scented lilac, memory lane rose and white hydrangea, lavender, lotus pods, fritillarea and lime green cymbidium orchids with lavender and purple scented stocks all crafted into bouquets and luxury centre pieces.

Christchurch wedding fair…

A very exciting start to the year with Christchurch harbour hall wedding fair… Spring was most certainly in my mind when I created these cute little designs with watering cans and rustic bouquets. This hanging heart literally has so many uses, my favourite place is to have one hanging on the front door of your chosen venue to greet your guests on arrival. I also love the cute little candles wrapped in lace and ribbon. Its the finishing touches that make your wedding bespoke to you.
