I really should have posted the images of Nicola's flowers much sooner because if I say so myself, they really were rather beautiful. House move has a lot to answer for ! But better late than never - here they are.
Nicola's country style bouquet in soft blue, pink, lilac and ivory. I have used a few roses mixed with agapanthus, scabious, larkspur, stocks, freesias and wax flower. Some real english country garden favourites in there. The overall effect is soft, natural and very pretty.
A small comb of lisianthus, spray rose and wax flower for the bride's hair
Lady's buttonhole of rose, freesia, wax flower and rosemary.
For the bride's mum, a small spray of lisianthus, spray rose and wax flower designed to go on a small clutch bag.
The entrance porch at Rhinefield House, the stone ledge is decorated with candles all surrounded by wedding themed flowers in blues, dusky pinks and ivory.
Stunning, tumbling flowers for the fireplace at Rhinefield House in pinks and blues. The hydrangeas are great for this job and look spectacular mixed with delphiniums, spray roses and mixed trailing foliages. Each section is separated by a large lantern containing a church candle. This is a large design but can always be scaled down for smaller mantles
The table centres were a co-ordinating mix of country style flowers in soft blues and dusky pinks in a wreath around a church candle in a storm lantern. Rhinefield House was made for candlelight and this type of design is a great option for anyone looking for low table centre ideas at this venue.
The same mix of flowers scaled up into a beautiful trailing design for the somewhat large fireplace in the Great Hall at Rhinefield. The overall effect of the 2 co-ordinating designs at different levels and all that candlelight is quite stunning.
A smaller, trailing design for the mantle in the Kings Room where the drinks reception was held.
That just leaves me to say thank you so much Nicola for asking me to design and create your wedding flowers for you. As you can probably tell, I absolutely loved working on this beautiful and very natural scheme for you.
