A Blue and Ivory wedding at The Olde Barn Marston

 Nicola and Paul's wedding flowers from last weekend. All these flowers are artificial.
The colour scheme was ivory and blue with the main flower roses. Nicola wanted a traditional shaped bouquet that wasn't to large, so we went with a teardrop. This was to include roses and stephanotis with the blue being brought in with agapanthus.
 The flower girl carried a gorgeous gold sparkle wand with  a single rose attached with ribbon trails.
 The male bridal party members were each given a single rose buttonhole with agapanthus florets.
 The ladies were each given a rose corsage with blue and white agapanthus.
 The wedding and reception took place at The Olde Barn at Marston, Grantham. A lovely hotel and restaurant with different rooms dependant on your needs.
 The table centres were a tall vase with a single stem of agapanthus with two roses and bear grass. A diamond style light in the base will have reflected off the mirrors giving a glow to the later proceedings.

Pink wedding flowers

Looking for inspiration for your wedding flowers and having pink as the accent colour? Look no further.
Top: Like lilies? You can have them in your bouquet. A few open blooms and buds with a cage of willow/foliage or wire can make this bouquet unique to you.
Prefer gerberas? Want something simple? Have a hand-tie of gerberas with pretty ribbon trails. Many shades are available from the palest to the hotest pinks.

 Do you want something different but love roses. Try a carmen rose. It can be created with any colour of rose but a soft pink with lovely organza ribbon looks dreamy.
 You can't beat a scented bouquet, so how about a mass of freesias? A lovely dainty flower that works aswell on its own as with other flowers.
 Want something different? A bouquet of alstroemeria flowers taken to pieces and put back together as only a florist can. Add some sparkle, for a truly special bouquet.
 A modern take on the shower bouquet. Lovely sweetpeas, eustoma and roses with bear grass to add extra length.
 Don't want to carry a bouquet or want something else for your bridesmaids? How about wrist corsages. There are now many types of bracelets available to co-ordinate with your style. These work with most flowers but this uses roses and ivy leaves.
 Getting married for the second time or having an intimate civil do? Not wearing a 'big white dress' but a suit or similar, then treat yourself to a corsage, you don't have to carry a bouquet.
A super gorgeous hand-tie of roses, peonies, sweetpeas and heather.
 A hand-tie of garden roses. They come in various shades and when in full bloom are huge and most are scented. They work very well with vintage styling.
 A country styled wedding with mixed seasonal flowers: Roses, stocks, astrantia, larkspur and guelder rose.
How about a posy of a gorgeous garden rose surrounded by cymbidium orchids with extra sparkle.

These are just a selection of what is available, many other styles and flowers are out there. Just ask.
