Jo and Ben's Whirlow Hall Farm Wedding - natural vibes, milk churns and dirty dancing!

Hi all,

We cannot begin to tell you how many outdoor wedding we are getting asked to do now and by no means are we complaining!  The whole vibe of these days suits us down to the ground with huge displays of 'just picked' flowers and awesome bouquets, that's not to say we aren't partial to the odd warehouse urban wedding mind you.

Jo and Ben got married at Whirlow Hall Farm with a stunning outdoor ceremony performed by none other than Reverend Kate Bottley otherwise known as the Vicar from Gogglebox.

Jo and Ben wanted a very natural look for their wedding flowers with a very natural vibe and neutral colour pallet.  In keeping with the farm feel they even opted for milk churns packed full of blooms to decorate the barn.  Jo's bouquet contained white dahlia, sweet avalanche roses, jana spray roses, astilbe, white lisianthus, apricot lisianthus, white wax flower, dried lavender, green bell and eucalyptus.

The bridesmaids had a similar design to the bride just slightly smaller.  Buttonholes were kept to a sprig style design.

Also check out Nan at the end, I just couldn't not include the pics of her in our blog, not flower related at all, but what a legend.

Massive thanks to Joy from Unique Wedding Planning and Events for introducing us to such a lovely couple, always great to collaborate.  And also a huge thank you to James Stewart Photography for letting us have access to such brilliant pics.  Enjoy!

August Highlights - Wedding Flower Ideas

Hi all,

Can't quite believe another month has passed, we have worked on some awesome weddings and as always have loved being part of your special days.  I have put together a selection of stunning August designs to provide floral inspiration you but also we like to have a look through, think back and enjoy all that we have achieved and the wonderful people we got to work with.

Bridal Bouquets

This month we had a real eclectic mix of colours and shapes to our bouquets.  Last month was all about the asymmetric bouquet but this month we just can't call it.  This just goes to emphasis just how unique you all are with your ideas.

Frances and Rob's Wedding at Sycamore Farm Barns in Matlock - Rustic florals in the great ourdoors

Hi all,

Frances and Rob got married July this year at Sycamore Farm Barns in Matlock.  The couple wanted a very relaxed, DIY feel to the day and the venue, set up and styling did just that.  Frances and Rob got married on the Friday and had an outdoor ceremony on the Saturday which is something that is proving very popular with our couples. This lovely idea allows you to have the "wedding day" that you really want in a location of your choice.

For her bouquet Frances wanted a very meadowy 'just picked' vibe, with plenty of texture.  The flowers chosen were campanula, astrantia, wax flowers, thistles, green bell, aster, tanacetum, stocks, delphinium and lavender.

The bridesmaids had a posy of just wax flowers with dainty flower crowns to match.  Buttonholes were kept to a sprig design.

Venue flowers were key with jars, buckets, vases, watering cans, floral chandeliers and milk churns packed full of blooms with a long and low design thrown in for good measure!

We had a lovely e-mail from Frances and Rob that read like this:

"We would like to say a huge heartfelt thank you for all your hard work in preparing the flowers for our wedding.  We had so many compliments for our guests on your gorgeous arrangements.  You captured our vision perfectly and we couldn't have asked for more."

Thanks once again, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you.

Best wishes

Frances and Rob"
