Anna and Sam - Beautiful Blushes for an English Rose
Well hello there!!!
So as the nights draw in and the winter weather looms grab a hot chocolate, put your onesie on and have a read of our blog. Today I am counteracting winter with a lovely wedding from this spring. Anna and Sam got married last May at Heathy Lea on the Chatsworth Estate, if you have never been it is well worth a trip out as its absolutely beautiful. Such a great location for an outdoor wedding.
Anna is a massive fan of flowers and was very clear that they were to play a huge part in her wedding and we were only too happy to oblige. It was like a dream come true for us. Anna wanted a wild, oversized bouquet with trails and wanted to keep with flowers that were in season if possible. Being a fellow flower lover it was hard for Anna to choose but in the end the bouquet included lily of the philadelphus, David Austin roses 'Patience' and 'Keira 'varieties, white lilac, stocks, larkspur, 'creme gracia' spray roses, cream wax flower, asparagus fern, green bell and 'hypnose' rose.
Anna also went with a stunning bridal crown which complimented her dress and bouquet beautifully.
For the bridesmaids Anna chose a more rounded design for the bouquets but wanted to keep that open very natural look. We used more whites and creams to contrast with the dresses.
Again the button holes were very much in keeping with the wild and natural theme. We used flowers similar to the bridal bouquet and designed them in a sprig style to keep the 'just picked' look. The ladies buttonholes being slightly bigger with more foliage as you can see.
Last but by no means least are the venue flowers. Anna and Sam went for a the prettiest arrangements in jars with lace ribbon around, which Anna and her Mum sourced. The colour pallet was more pastels to make them stand out against the back drop.
And what better picture to finish on than a picture if the gorgeous bride and groom!
