Claire and Mark's Sheffield Botanical Gardens and Roco Wedding - Rainy days, happy faces and soft, seasonal flowers.
Like so many of our couples choose to do, Claire and Mark actually got officially married on Friday, the day before their 'wedding' day. The day after, they chose a humanist ceremony with all their friends and family which is where we stepped in to design the flowers. The couple met at the Botanical Gardens for gorgeous 'first look' photos and lovely shots with family (many of whom live far from Sheffield). Then it was on to Roco for the humanist ceremony (intimately performed by a close friend) and reception. Claire and Mark were so relaxed and as you can see, not even a spot of rain put them off having a great time.
In terms of flowers the couple wanted quite a neutral colour pallet with lots of seasonal flowers. Venue decorations were pretty potted lavender and silver succulents, along with shiny glass baubles hung from the cool, urban architecture, filled with white carnations for a touch of drama. For the brides bouquet Claire wanted something compact but with plenty of softness and texture. The flowers chosen were scabious, lisianthus, white thistle, stocks, craspedia, daisies, lavender, waxflower, cornflowers, rosemary and eucalyptus.
Bridesmaids had a similar design to the bride but slightly smaller with less of the larger blooms. Buttonholes were the classic focal design.
Massive thanks to the talented Ellie Grace Photography for the images. Enjoy!
