Lucy and Mark were looking for a strong wintery theme to their wedding flowers but avoiding the overly "Christmas" look. The bridesmaids were in midnight with cream fur shrugs and we needed to compliment those, oh and the bride loved gypsophila, was it possible to incorporate it into a winter wedding ? Here are the designs I came up with for them.
Lucy's very wintery bouquet in cream and midnight, rich cream roses and spray roses, anemones and Viburnum Tinus berries for the hint of midnight, mini pine cones, a fair amount of pine and a smattering of gypsophila because this variety, when combined with the other elements has the strong look of a smattering of snowflakes. Very wintery and very natural, we both loved it ! Perfect for this early December wedding but I have to say though, equally good for a Christmas wedding.

Candelabra flowers for a winter wedding, cream roses, spray roses, anemones, gypsophila and mixed winter foliages including pine and ivy trails. Sat on a mirror plate with tea lights underneath and a scattering of rose petals it looked quite magical with the Christmas tree behind.
Wintery wreath of pine, roses, anemones and gypsophila around a candle within a storm lantern. This makes a gorgeous table centre for a winter wedding. Again it is sat on a mirror plate and we combined it with the candelabra designs for colour, flower and candlelight at every level.
The lovely Monkey Island where the wedding reception was held, accessed by a footbridge over the river Thames this was a new venue for me.
That just leaves me to say thank you so much Mark and Lucy for choosing me to design and create your wedding flowers for you. It was an absolute pleasure working with you on this gorgeous wintery scheme at Monkey Island. Very many congratulations on your marriage.
