Jenny and Tom got married on the 11th August, the ceremony was at Shotesham Church with the reception being held in a marquee in Jenny’s parents garden, the couple wanted some extra special designs throughout both venues to wow their guests throughout the day. Jenny knew exactly what she wanted in her bridal bouquet which I love, she had pictures of flowers she really liked that she wanted in there, they included ‘King Protea’, silvery ‘Senecio’, powder blue ‘Eucalyptus’ foliages and ‘Succulents’ I then mixed in some stunning mass petalled ‘Roses’ and delicate ‘Bombastic’ and ‘Majolica’ spray roses, with some dove grey ‘Brunia’ and stunning blush pink ‘Kaaps’ dotted throughout. The bouquet had a loose, natural feel with the flowers arranged randomly and on slightly different levels creating a beautiful informal look, the bridesmaids had a smaller, simpler version than the bridal bouquet.
The buttonholes were kept really simple, they were made from a couple of chalk white ‘Majolica’ spray roses, nestled together with ‘Populus’ and ‘Gunni’ eucalyptus, a silvery silvery ‘Senecio’ leaf and ‘Olive’. For the church Jenny and Tom wanted their guests to have a glorious welcome to their wedding so they asked for a archway above the doorway to be dressed, the couple had got masses of ‘hops’ which were going to be used on the table centres which they were doing themselves, they had also ordered extra to decorate the church.
The base of the archway was made with chunky ‘hop’ vines, I then nestled the flowers throughout creating a relaxed, natural style, flowers to include large headed pure white ‘Hydrangea’, sweet scented ‘Stocks’, lots of blowsy ‘Roses’ and super pretty ‘Spray roses’. Inside the church the 4 window ledges with dressed with ‘hop’ vines with clusters of palest pink and neutral blooms mixed throughout, the pews had cute mini bunches tied onto them with natural twine.
The front of the church was decorated with two tall birch trees which Jenny and Tom had hired in, I then dressed the screen with masses of ‘Hop’ vines left to ramble over the wooden frame, clusters of neutral and palest pink blooms were then dotted throughout the hops adding to the natural, gardeny style.
For the marquee they wanted a huge archway to greet their guests as they enter the marquee for the first time, the archway was 3m wide, the frame was covered with branches with masses of foliages then worked amongst the branches creating a beautiful, natural look.
