Roxy and Calum - Sweet Scented Hops meets David Austin roses!
Today we are bringing you a real wedding from September last year full of locally grown blooms. Roxy and Calum got married at the beautiful Wood Lane Countryside Centre giving them the perfect natural looking leafy back drop for their big day. The ceremony took place in the Grain loft, where we hung fresh hops hung from the beams which looked stunning. These sweet scented beauties are only available on fresh 'bines' for a really short time during the year, so we just couldn't resist suggesting them!
To keep a really soft, rustic feel to the decor, we used small glass jars on the chair backs in the ceremony room, cream jugs on the window ledges and natural looking arrangements designed using wooden trugs for the ceremony room. As always, we used a selection of locally grown blooms in keeping with the brides bouquet and 'just picked' look.
Be silly, be honest, be kind ...
Outside we hung pretty glass baubles from the trees, filled with delicate, romantic pink gypsophila
For the bridal bouquet Roxy wanted a very natural looking, loose hand tied full of vintage roses. So we went for David Austin roses in soft creams and peaches. We teamed these with some fragrant Yorkshire Lavender, wheat, 'September' flower (Aster) and a selection of seasonal locally grown blooms. For her something old Roxy had us add a locket to her flowers which had great sentimental value to her, something many of our Brides do in order to make their flowers even more personal.
For the adult bridesmaids Roxy chose to have a smaller version of her bouquet made without the peach David Austin roses and in more neutral colours as the dresses were a lovely vibrant coral. Then for the little bridesmaids we stuck to something simple opting for a dainty pink gyp hand tied.
Calum went for a flash of bright orange for his button hole combined with wheat, hops and natural twine which looked stunning against his grey suit.
