Last of the summer Peonies

I got to make a beautiful bespoke bouquet for a intimate wedding at the end of this July. Its really lovely when the opportunity arises to put all your focus on making one exquisite design that will be the floral focus of an event. 

The bride wanted soft pastels with a twist, with a touch burgundy in it. As it was high summer we went with all the scents, combining David Austin pale pink roses with light peonies. Lucky for me i was staying at my parents at the time and was able to cut some Cotinus from the garden, along with andan everlasting sweet pea.

 

Nick and Lydia's summer Somerleyton Wedding

Nick and Lydia chose the beautiful Sommerleyton Hall for their big day . The other wedding on the 19th May, the theme was green and white, allowing the flowers to blend well with the venue's winter garden room, an orangery covered with wall plants. 

In the church the poles as you entered, were decorated with foliage to create impact. By the windows were little urns filled with greenery and a few wild natural flowers including early cows parsley (sheeps parsley)

The bride carried a trailing green and white bouquet, with Calla lilies (the brides favourite) and natural, seasonal blooms including Ammi, Orlaya and Aquilega to keep the bouquet looking wild and natural.

In the venue there were a variation of tables long tables and round. With the round tables, we created high arrangements made from Beech and May flower, much of which we could cut from the Suffolk countryside! On the long tables there were classic style urn arrangements, along with plants in planters, bringing height to the tables.
