The Lincoln Hotel wedding ceremony and reception flowers

The ceremony and reception of the first indoor wedding pre lockdown was held at The Lincoln Hotel.
The Tennyson suite is the place for saying 'I Do' and we decorated the registrars table with a long and low display in flowers to match the bride's bouquet. Peach, pink, white and lilac with the all important single yellow rose to represent a lost loved one.

Roses, spray roses, eustoma and gyp with fern, jasmine and ivy foliage.

We were still in Covid restrictions so seating was spaced accordingly.

As there were a small number of guests everyone was seated (within social distancing regulations) around a large oval table in the Cathedral suite.

A singular display in a large birdcage with trailing jasmine and ivy filled the central space with a couple of single roses to add a little height either side.

If you are having limited guests this seating is more sociable and you can fill the central space with one large display or lots of smaller designs. Get in touch to discuss your options

Bridal flowers in pale pink, peach, white and lilac

Here we are once again and I am now sharing the weddings post lockdown but still with many restrictions in place. This, my first of 2021 was held on the day weddings and receptions could go ahead inside but limited to 30 people. 
This couple were always having a small 'do' and kept to their small numbers despite being officially allowed a few more.

The bride had requested a trailing hand tie in an unusual colour scheme of pink, peach, lilac and white and loved roses. To give variety we used large avalanche roses in pink and peach with white spray roses and gyp with lilac eustoma. A single yellow rose was also requested to represent a lost loved one.

Trying fern and jasmine was added for length and movement from the bouquet

The single bridesmaid wore a wrist corsage on a pearl band with a few blooms to match the brides bouquet

The Groom and his men each wore a single pink rose with traditional asparagus fern.

The bride and grooms mum's each wore a corsage with a single white rose with pale pink eustoma blooms with foliage

Special ladies were presented with a single white rose buttonhole. Something I quite like to do especially with a small guest list, makes everyone feel included.

The bouquet and buttonhole ready for delivery on the wedding morning.

These colours work well together even if a little unusual! If you love colours that are not the usual please don't be put off putting them together, the flowers should represent your style and personality not just be, as it's trendy!

If you are looking for something away from the norm, please get in touch to discuss how we can create your dream flowers. I won't say no to any colours scheme!

White and cream wedding ceremony and reception flowers at The Lincoln Hotel

The wedding ceremony and reception of R & J was held at the lovely Lincoln Hotel.
The  ceremony is in the Tennyson suite and this was styled with a long and low for the ceremony table (later transferred to the top table) in the same mix as the brides flowers.

The room was set following social distancing rules and with the limited numbers allowed.

We also added our 200cm ivory blossom trees which look fabulous in this space

The covid regulation set room

Our trees really make a statement whatever your colour scheme. Move them around your venue once the ceremony has finished and adorn the entrance to your reception, place either side the top table or drinks/gift/cake table.

The entrance and bar area were treated to 3 small cylinder vases with a rose, freesia and eustoma blooms submerged with crystals and a floating candle.

The drinks reception table enjoyed its own floral display with a mix of scented flowers from the bridal bouquet

Garden roses, stocks and freesia with a mix of eucalyptus

The table plan was to be set by the entrance with its own version of the table displays.

Each table was styled with 3 differing height cylinder vases. The tallest had stocks, then eustoma and the smallest a rose. The flowers were submerged and sat on a bed of clear beads and had a floating candle on top.
Again the tables were following Covid numbers and social distancing measures.

These are pretty yet compact designs for neat classic table settings

The top table was adorned with two vase displays at either end

and after the ceremony the long and low was added in the  centre.

White and cream bridal flowers with eucalyptus

Still looking back at previous weddings, this was the one and only wedding I created during the Covid hit 2020. It may seem long ago to some but this pandemic hit our wedding industry like nothing ever has and probably will again. A business which normally crates 40-50 weddings a year reduced to 1!
This one was a stunner though!!!

The wedding of R & J was the perfect blend of white and cream flowers with plenty of foliage, especially eucalyptus. 
The bridal bouquet of roses, stocks, freesia, garden roses, astilbe and eustoma with trailing eucalyptus and gorgeous senecio silver foliage. A lot of these are scented to adding a beautiful extra dimension.

R also requested some silver diamanté's to be included throughout and added to pin the cream satin ribbon in place.

The flowers and foliage lend themselves to the gorgeous country style that is still popular.

This eucalyptus was chosen as it has longer thinner leaves and usually has seed heads too.

The single bridesmaid carried a similar posy but without the trailing foliage and diamanté's.

And the two flower girls carried a small version with a couple of each flower variety and foliage

The groom and his men each wore a single rose buttonhole with a eustoma bloom,  eucalyptus leaf and seed heads, senecio leaf and a sprig of Rosemary for the traditional luck. The stems are bound in cream satin ribbon.

The mother of the bride wore a slightly fuller buttonhole and we added diamant√© for a touch of glitz. 

All buttonholes are presented pinned on a board and can be labelled for ease on the day.

I always appreciate when couples send over a few professional photos of the day. Unfortunately I wasn't given their name, so if these are yours please get in touch.

The next post will be the ceremony and reception flowers from this gorgeous wedding. 
If you love these designs and/or colour scheme and would like to chat through your own designs please get in touch
