I met Catherine over lunch for her consultation, the moment she told me about her venue I couldn’t wait to see it, it looked like a fairy tale wedding venue, but with a twist, different to any venue I’d worked at. Catherine was after an elegant but relaxed feel with her flowers, with seasonal flowers (thank you Pipley Flowers!) and a few jewel tones to stand out against the bridesmaids’ gorgeous dresses.

When I arrived at the venue, I was completely blown away! It was even more beautiful in real life, with so many unique details!

Shortly after the wedding I saw this sneak preview from Joab Smith Photography, and I couldn’t wait to see the rest of the photos. And oh my… aren’t they absolutely gorgeous!! ♥

When a bride emails me about wedding flowers, and tells me from the start that she prefers rich, jewel tones such as emerald green and navy blue, paired with bright flowers, I know we’re going to get on just fine! I met Jen and Chris at a wedding fair a little while back, and they got back in touch for their wedding flowers.  They got married at the Bristol Registry Office, and then celebrated at St George’s Hall just off Park Street.

Pastel rustic barn wedding for Lauren + Chris // REAL WEDDING

Today I’m excited to share Lauren + Chris’ pastel, rustic wedding at Kingscote Barn, thanks to Charlotte’s photos from Bristol Contemporary Photography. Lauren had her heart set on a rustic, barn wedding from the start, and I think you’ll agree from the photos that they achieved this beautifully!

Lauren + Chris met at University, and got engaged on their 6 year anniversary at a spa hotel. Chris had made Lauren a photo book and at the end it said “will you marry me?” ♥

For the flowers, Lauren decorated a lot of jars with jute string, burlap and lace. The venue was decorated with a lot of these jam jars, with a variety of pastel colours.

REAL WEDDING // Melissa + Jamie – Gorgeous Autumn Wedding

Real Wedding Emerald & Jade Flowers // www.emeraldandjadeflowers.com // photos by www.interlacephotography.co.uk

 

I met Melissa and Jamie through a mutual friend; they were getting married at Berwick Lodge in October and wanted to make full use of the gorgeous autumn colours available that month for their flowers and decor.

Initially, Melissa wasn’t 100% sure what she wanted, although she really liked calla lilies and lilies, especially in orange. We worked together on a Pinterest board, gathering ideas, and then I met with Melissa and Jamie to go through everything. It was during the consultation that everything came together.

For the ceremony room, I used wooden logs of various heights decorated with moss and candles, with some ferns planted in terracotta pots (which the guests then got to take home). I also decorated the pillars with some twigs and flowers to match the bouquet, just to add a little splash of colour to the beautiful ceremony room at Berwick Lodge.

The bouquets were beautiful and rich in colour, with lots of ferns as their dark green foliage really complemented the flowers. Melissa had a gorgeous bouquet, rich in colour.

The bridesmaids’ bouquets were mostly green, with some flowers for just a splash of colour against their dresses.

The buttonholes and corsages were in the same tones as Melissa’s bouquet, with Jamie’s a little different to his groomsmen.

And then there was Frank, the cutest little flower dog I ever saw 🙂

The end result was so beautiful, just the photos I saw on Facebook after the wedding looked beautiful, I love how the flowers seem to glow warmly!

REAL WEDDING – Izzi + Chris – Jenny Packham & bright flowers

2016-09-16_0026.jpg

I met Izzi and Chris at a wedding fair I did last year. They were initially due to be married next summer, but when they found out there would soon be a happy arrival, they decided to move the wedding forward. As such, when Izzi contacted me for her wedding flowers, the wedding was due to take place just over a month later. I already had a two week holiday booked in so we met just before I went and got talking flowers and planning. (more…)
