Harry Warren Wedding…

It makes my day when I get to travel over to the Purbecks for a summer wedding… even the ferry trip feels like a day out!

Studland is a beautiful part of the world and some lucky couples get to celebrate their wedding at the incredible Harry Warren House…

Our first trip of the day was to St Nicholas church, oh and what a cutie it is, I don’t think I’ve ever been in such a small place! The aisle was lined with sunflower floral jam jars giving such a pop of colour and the ceremony area had an asymmetric foliage arch creating a focal point for the couple to stand under…

My favourite bit was the free styled foliage arch at the entrance to the church… Textured silver birch, eucalyptus, ferns, ivy and dainty white wax flower created a wild and natural look.

The Marquee and Harry Warren House had two wow factor hanging floral swings with a mass of textured foliage, sunflowers and summer garden flowers… the view was to die for and the sun was shinning… happy days!

Italian Villa summer wedding….

Elegantly wild and rustic…

As you all know I’m the biggest fan of foliage and creating textures… this summer wedding was no different at Italian Villa…

I love doing a 50/50 combo of tall and short table centrepieces, it draws the eye through the room… Sophisticated tall silver candlesticks and silver urns were packed with textured seasonal foliage and bright summer flowers… vibrant orange dahlias were combined with peach roses, touches of white and scented flowering mint… Each table was finished with silver candlesticks and tea lights, plus rose buds and sprigs of foliage…

Yummy naked cake was dressed with a simple cluster and cake topper complementing the theme.

New Forest wedding at the incredible Gin’s Barn…

I seriously do have the best job in the world… I get to visit lots of Awesome locations during the year setting up peoples weddings, but I’m an absolute sucker for rural intimate locations… Gin’s Barn is located on the cusp of the solent’s tucked in on a little estuary in the New Forest… I was like a kid on Christmas day! I’d arrived early and my bride Erin was super chilled  so I had a little explore before setting up… the sun was breaking through the morning haze and the views were just stunning, I was very excited and loving my job…

The sail cloth tent was  exposed on all sides revealing the 360 view of the New Forest  country side, what a breath taking place to sit down, enjoy food and good wine with friends, celebrate your awesome big day and relax… I wanted to be a guest big time! Erin chose a trio of eclectic table centrepieces, all varying in height, shape and size using various glass vase’s… The chosen flowers were sumptuous and opulent using lush white peonies, hydrangea and large headed spray roses… Loose textured floaty foliage brought a natural feel to the flowers embracing a garden flower look… I was more than happy with the results.

It was an honour Erin and Kris… Thank you for asking me to part of your day!

Woodland wedding New forest…

I had the best fun teaming up with my fellow wedding stylists – Linen & Lace… This woodland shoot was inspired by make up artists – Tara Sanger  and captured by my favourite photographer – Charlotte Bryer-ash…

As you’ll all know I’m at my happiest when I’m in a woodland setting but Rhinefied drive in the New forest has to be one of the most stunning places in Dorset, I’m so lucky to live where I live!

The river captured our hearts for this easy go shoot with relaxed vibes of a simple woodland ceremony… My awesome new Willow tree’s got their first outing. I decided to keep it simple creating a boho feel with lots of trailing ribbons complementing the coral theme… Linen & Lace had some new eclectic pieces… Retro plant stands and candlesticks styled the ceremony with fern plants and florals, I just adored the finished look reminding me of Grandmas parlor when I was a little girl!

The dress was mass of coral fabric that never ended with flowers of subtle coral peonies and hydrangea, off set by burgundy foraged foliage and seasonal flowers, finished with boho trailing ribbons… I just loved it!

New forest intimate wedding…

Sam and Lindsay came to me with a vision of a very simple intimate wedding at Carey’s Manor in the New forest…

The summer season and natural surroundings of the hotel were inspiration for the theme… These guys had seen some of my previous work on Instagram and fell in love with vibrant seasonal flowers that would really stand out… I love vibrant colours so I was very happy and inspired with the brief… They decided on a eclectic combo of fern plants, vibrant floral jars, succulent favour plants, which would be pushed into the tablescape once guests were seated, becoming part of the design… silver candlesticks and tea light finished the look and created a cosy candlelit glow for their 13 guests to dine during their 8 course meal with pairing wines… Oh my gosh I would have loved to part of that table with its fabulous food, floral’s and intimacy!
