Weddings Flowers for 2021

 Weddings! So long since I have talked weddings!

As at the time of writing the current guidelines going forward are;

From 12th April - Weddings up to 15 guests

From 17th May - Weddings from 30 guests

From 21st June - Unlimited guests

Guests does include Bride and Groom, and as I understand this is ceremony and meal/reception. Clarity is needed for supplies external from the venue such as photographers etc.

These dates are dependant on each other, if one gets pushed back so will the others.

We as a sector are crying out for your weddings to proceed but also understand this must be done safely, with guest and suppliers/staff being in a COVID safe environment.

I have added my voice to the #whataboutweddings campaign, signing petitions, questionnaires, and writing to my MP. (not much joy there!)

So many postponements from 2020 with one wedding going ahead with reception and one just bride and groom and 2 guests in a church, so sad. In all my days as a florist this has to be the worst year ever! Will 2021 be any better, let's hope so. I have rearranged all weddings that have contacted me and have some that are still waiting for dates when restrictions are lifted. I do have available dates if you are in the planning process and once 12th April comes I will be able to start consultations again (hopefully). Please get in touch with any questions on your planning process.

My T&C's now have a COVID section and should (full) restrictions be back this will cover your booking fee and payments. Please talk through any concerns you have.

I am looking forward to my first wedding in such a long time in 5 weeks and then hopefully I can create new content and images to inspire you all.

Take care and stay safe

Pretty summer wedding in blue white and green flowers

A gorgeous and pretty blue bridal posy filled with summer loveliness, Dark blue delphiniums, cornflower, white nigella, Chamomile, gyp, and Alchemillia mollis. Stems were bound in twine to perfect the country styling.

The single bridesmaid carried a cloud of gyp posy

The groomsmen each wore a country style buttonhole of spray roses, veronica and rosemary foliage (left)
The Mother of the Bride wore a similar style yet fuller design (right)

These were all placed in shotgun shells by the bridal party on delivery.

Another of our fabulous clients who was having a small but intimate wedding.

Burgundy and white bridal flowers

Bridal posies can be whatever you want them to be.
This bride was clear on using white roses and foliage with 3 deep red dahlia and a few pine cones. A compact design yet with a messy outline, not neat and tidy.
We love brides who embrace foliage. The bridal bouquet used seeded eucalyptus

while the four bridesmaid bouquets had asparagus ferns densiflorus and setaceus teamed with the eucalyptus and white roses.

The 7 groomsmen each wore a single white rose with asparagus and eucalyptus leaves.

A small yet elegant wedding party whom we are always happy to design flowers for.
We don't have a minimum spend for your flowers as we believe anyone should be able to have gorgeous flowers whatever their budget or size of wedding.

Marquee foliage table runner garlands and hoops

On the hottest weekend of the year we set up this stunning wedding. 
Lots and lots of foliage!
(See the bridal bouquets and buttonhole here)
The sides of the marquee were opened up from early on and left open as it was so hot!
We were asked to dress 3 x 4ft hoops for the marquee ceiling and provide eucalyptus garlands for 175ft plus of table length
The hoops were to be dressed with Birch, significant foliage for the family, to cover and hang to break up the vastness of the space.

The trestle tables were dressed with a thin garland of eucalyptus to not take up too much space on the table. As you can see, left, table cloth and garland, right, table fully styled with cutlery, crockery and glasses. 


The tables as we left them.

The bar was also styled with a eucalyptus garland

Later when we delivered the groomsmen buttonholes we could see the marquee dressed and styling complete.

Trestle tables can make a great setting for your guests, allows you more guests per space and can be more guest friendly than the large round tables.

The sight the bride and groom and guests see on entering the marquee

Are you looking for ideas to style a marquee? Not sure where to start? This was styled entirely in foliage, not a flower in sight. We have lots of ideas and inspiration for whatever look and style to are looking to achieve. Get in touch to see how we can help you achieve your dream venue.

White roses and eucalyptus wedding flower bouquets and buttonholes

On one of the hottest days of the summer we created wedding flowers for a sophisticated yet simple wedding. The brief; white roses and plenty of foliage!
This bride wanted a handful of gorgeous white roses in her bouquet surrounded by trailing eucalyptus to give a waterfall effect.
Six gorgeous avalanche roses with lots of populus seeded eucalyptus created the perfect bouquet. The stems were bound with material off cuts from the bride's dress.

The 4 bridesmaids each carried a dainty posy of eucalyptus with a few sprigs of gyp for colour.

The bridal bouquets all ready for delivery to the bride

The 11 groomsmen all wore a simple white rose with eucalyptus sprigs and stems bound in white twine.

Groomsmen buttonholes ready for delivery to the reception venue where the boys are staying.

This bride already had a clear vision of what she wanted for her flowers and with a little help to fine tune these we made her flower/foliage dreams come true.
Never be afraid to state what you want for your flowers, should you know, we can either go straight with what you want or if not quite possible, for some reason, we will talk through alternatives to achieve a happy compromise.
