Sorry it's been a while since my last post. I haven't had my feet up ! I have been kept exceptionally busy on the flower front and all else has got a little behind. Just so you know I am still around and working, here are a few shots from Pippa's lovely wedding at Trafalgar Park. I will write a bit about the designs soon and lots more lovely weddings follow.
Pippa's bouquet of pale and strong pink roses, lilac freesia and purple lisianthus, the 4 colours her bridesmaids were wearing. The pink astilbe, asparagus fern and the touch of foliage give the bouquet that soft vintage feel Pippa loved.
Bridesmaids' vintage style posies of pale pink rose, purple lisianthus, lilac freesia and strong pink spray rose. A smaller version of the bridal bouquet. Each bridesmaid was in a different colour but the same dress, they carried posies using all 4 colours to bring the look together.
Vintage style buttonholes of Sweet Avalanche rose, astilbe and purple lisianthus for teh men.
For the ladies, a co-ordinating design but using the strong pink spray rose.
Ceremony flowers at Trafalgar Park, a wedding themed long and low design of pale pink roses, purple lisianthus, lilac freesia and strong pink spray rose with astilbe and mixed vintage style foliages.
Table Centre with fan for the table name. Now there is a story behind this design, Pippa and her husband met through Hampshire Regency Dancing and this was the group's first wedding. Each table is named after a Regency Dance and the fan was a perfect way to display the table names. The fan is held by a small vase containing Pippa's flowers to give the table a splash of colour.
Fan, place name - perfect.
Last but not least, the tiered wedding cake made by the groom's mum with the space between each tier filled with pink, purple and lilac flowers. Very striking.
That just leaves me to say, thank you so much Pippa for asking me to design and create your wedding flowers for you. It was an absolute pleasure working on the mix of bright colour and soft vintage style.
