Meet Georgie and Omar who married in October last year at st Mary’s church, Netherbury followed by a reception at the stunning Anoller… a beautiful, private rural retreat…
These guys were all about natural elegance with foliage being the main feature throughout the wedding, continuity between church flowers, bouquets and reception flowers were key… shades of textured foliage teamed with dainty ivory flowers and interesting things like seed heads, thistles and rosemary for remembrance, were used to create the bouquets. Georgie wanted to wear something of her grandma’s who couldn’t be with them on the day, so she wove a bracelet of hers into her hair. I thought this was such a beautiful and unique way of incorporating her into the day.
The cute village church had simple bunches of foliage and white flowers attached to every pew end down the aisle… this lead to the ceremony area which had rustic stacked wooden crates with large wow factor flowers… sat amongst the crates were chunky pillar candles creating a romantic glow… finishing the look all the window ledges had trailing textured foliage and masses of white pillar candles, again adding to and creating a cosy romantic feel…
Reception flowers were all about the wow factor… Axnoller’s raw rustic barn is quite a big space and demands show stopper florals… 1 metre high glass cylinder vases topped with luxury foliage arrangements creating a wild unstructured look… Seed heads and thistles along with dainty cream wax flower and scented white phlox were dotted throughout… wow factor hanging globe tea lights cascaded around the vase, leading to further tea lights dotted around the base… As place cards, Georgie and Omar used black and white Polaroid photos of their guests which created this awesome monochromatic theme throughout the barn.. they also displayed treasured family photographs of their parents and grandparents on their wedding days with further pillar candles, tea lights and flowers… these finishing touches and attention to detail really did create the ultimate super classy look!
Georgie fell in love with a pair of gold sparkly Stuart Weitzman pumps
and chose a gorgeous bias cut silk gown with guipure lace bodice which was designed and hand made by Elaine cross…The bridesmaids looked lovely in the ‘Regent’ dress in a light shade of dove grey, and in their hair, delicate sprigs of waxflower, as well as glitter heels from Kurt Geiger, chosen to complement Georgie’s… I think you’ll agree the palette of simple textured foliage and dainty white flowers complement the dresses so well.
I had an absolute ball designing and creating Georgie and Omar’s wedding flowers… thank you for asking me to be part of your special day! A quote I once read… “Choose your suppliers not just for their skills, but as people – they share some of your most special moments with you”.
