Julian and Amy's late summer wedding

Julian and Amy’s wedding was a favourite of mine. In late September they wanted lots of greenery with a few autumnal flowers. Their choices worked really well with the venue, Loft Studios, west London.

The rustic flowers worked really well with the industrial aesthetics. The ceremony room’s main focus was a hanging flower installation, which the couple married underneath. Made from lots of seasonal greenery including eucalyptus, wild thyme and asparagus fern the clouds flowers were reflected in bud vases decorating the windows and the pew ends.

Amy carried a bouquet made from late summer flowers including cosmos, dahlias and thistles.

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.
