Weddings Your Way - Floral Design Inspiration

Hello all

Hope all is good with you and if you're planning your wedding for this year or next, that ideas are flooding in! With inspiration in mind, I thought I'd share with you just some of the wonderful ideas our brides have had and our part in helping create designs which bring their flowery dreams to fruition!

Whilst we are happiest working in our trademark 'just picked' style (which can often mean ditzy little jam jars or mismatched antique bottles and the like) I thought I'd show you just how easy it is to interpret our style to encompass a whole heap of personalised creations.

So without further ado, I'll let the photos do the talking (although do excuse the quality they were all taken on my phone and I'm no photographer as you'll see) ....

Becky and Chris - Avengers, Lego, Hot Pink & 50's Styling = Creative Bliss!

Hi guys

It's so good to be back on the blog.  I've really missed posting regularly but with Mel taking a really well-earned two week break and more of you than ever coming to see me, it's been a bit of a challenge to stay on top of everything! Anyway, I've a couple of posts in mind which I'm planning on sharing with you really soon, but without further ado, I'll hand you over to our lovely Amy who's written another of her fab blogs all about one of our lovely couples.


Thanks T, so today we are bringing you a bright and beautiful wedding from September 2014. Becky and Chris got married at the Van Dyke Hotel and went for a 1950's inspired day with lots of references to Avengers and Lego characters as they're both massive fans.  Becky chose soft dove greys teamed with the brightest hot pinks for her florals and as you'll see from the photographs, the interior of the hotel is lovely but the gardens to make a beautiful back drop for the photographs especially if, like us, you are a bit of a flower lover.

For her bouquet Becky went for a quite compact style posy (which works brilliantly with the silhouette of her fifties inspired tea length dress) with plenty of hot pinks and a little lavender to loosen the design.  Becky also wanted seasonal flowers where possible so we included dahlia, thistles, echinops, brunia, spray roses and a little eucalyptus. For that extra special impact, we also ordered some stunning 'Darcy' David Austin roses.  They were absolutely beautiful, smelt divine and worked so well with all the lovely textures in her bouquet.  We also designed a bridal crown for Becky too with colours and flowers from the theme but this she wanted to look 'just picked' which I think T and Mel captured beautifully.  The bridesmaids had a similar designs, just a little smaller.
