Burley Manor Winter Wedding…

I really enjoyed creating this moody winter combo at Burley Manor… Textured silver foliage combined with dried seed heads, wild dainty wax flower, purple cabbages and textured roses.. The bride and bridesmaids bouquets were set off with striking violet short length dresses making this combo really pop!

The church aisle was lined with flowers tied to the pew ends meeting two large wow factor floral arrangements sat on rustic wooden crates… The free flowing wild foliage, as always, has created a natural looking shape with moody flowers nestled within…

The perfect winter combo with an unusual twist!

New Forest Hanging Garden…

Alas I have received the professional pictures from one of my weddings this summer! Set deep in the New Forest this marquee wedding had the show stopper of all show stoppers… a hanging garden floral swing!

I had such good fun creating this wild unstructured garden flower design… All the colours from Royal blues, baby pinks, bright yellows, lilacs were set off by black beech leaves and silver birch. The swing hovered just above the bride and groom heads making it the star of the show. Ria’s bouquet was super cute too with multi coloured trailing ribbons, even the bridesmaid got a hold!

Somerley Woodland Weddings…

Literally the best weekend to date… As you all know I love my woodland settings with lots of rustic glam and foliage… Coastal Tents asked me to join them for the weekend promoting Somerley House woodland weddings… well I couldn’t say no could I!

As you can see by the images I had the best fun… My new simple wood arch had its first outing adorned with hops for a casual feel… Stacked wooden crates finished the look with fern plants popping their heads out here and there, mini succulents in gold votives, white florals, cosy candles and white pumpkins. It was the perfect entrance into the wonderland tipi…

My favourite thing I’ve made to date ( I say that about everything I know!) was my moon gate… The ceremony area was perfectly lined with tall cedar trees and wooden benches… The moon gate was dressed with various textured autumnal foliage, Chinese lanterns, hydrangea heads, the largest sunflower heads I’ve ever seen, plus pops of pink wax flower…

Inside the tipi trestle tables had tablescapes of fern and succulent plants, gold floral jars, chunky pillar candles and candlesticks on mass, finished with white pumpkins and sunflowers heads… Fairy lights and over head lighting brought the whole thing together creating the ultimate cosy atmosphere!

New forest Wedding…

Right in the heart of the New Forest at the local village church… Phoebe and Stephen tied the knot…

Phoebe had such an eclectic style embracing all things vintage… She had the cutest little 50’s style dress with ballerina shoes, full veil and floral crown… Her maid of honour had matching short pink dress with the remaining bridesmaids in modern flowing gowns…

The flowers were so clashy and vibrant using bright orange dahlias, pale pink hydrangea, yellow spray roses and coral large headed roses with striking pale blue delphinium, lots of garden foliage and scented herbs. All the bouquets had luxurious thick velvet trailing ribbons in a variety of colours, finishing the look.

Outside the church sat stacked wooden crates and milk churns packed full of flower creating the ultimate wow factor as the guests arrived at the church, great alternative to a floral arch…

Table centrepieces had vintage blue china jugs filled with flowers plus eclectic silver and crystal candlelight styling with pale pink tapered candles provided by Linen and Lace.

It was so nice to play with such colour combinations and see everything come together on the day… Congrats guys, loved every minute!

Rhinefield woodland wedding…

Woodland inspired weddings are my absolute favourite!… If you’re a follower of mine then you’ll know I adore woodland settings and and foliage. Rhinefiled Hotel is set in the prettiest woodland I know whith stunning trees and winding rivers. Laura came all the way from the states, showing off the best of our British countryside for all her family…

Rhinefiled is a grand place and requires statement pieces… Obviously the central fireplace had to be decorated… we went for several types of textured woodland foliage creating a wild unstructured feel… hanging globe tea lights finished the look and created a warm and cosy feel…

Laura’s top table mimicked the fireplace with arrangements packed full of trailing foliage and blosuy blooms… Laura loves lavender so little glass tea lights and cylinder vases were filled with lavender pips and chunky candles adding to the finishing touches creating a woodland tablescape…

Tall chunky silver candlesticks had wild floral arrangements sat on stop with a base of short silver candlesticks, tea lights and pillar candles…

I was in my element setting up this wedding… wild flowing foliage and candlelight… what more do you need!

Clair instinctively knew what flowers to use based upon my brief... She is calm, relaxed, professional and discrete... An excellent creator of floral masterpieces which brought tears of joy to my eyes.
