Vintage inspired gyp bouquets

 A lovely vintage inspired bouquet of gyp and white carnations. The bride wanted to carry something simple and neat but didn't like roses. Carnations are often overlooked as a wedding flowers but go well with a vintage theme. The stems were tied and bound with white lace with a small bow.
 The bridesmaids each carried a small bouquet of gyp
 again tied together with white lace.

Charlotte House hotel reception

 Alice's reception was held at the lovely Charlotte House hotel. The table centres were my small black cocktail vases with a corsage of ivory roses and gyp. The 'vase' was filled with crush glass ice and two 'straws' of snake grass were added for the cocktail look.
 The vases looked stunning on the guest tables which had a minimal, clean look.

 The top table display was a long and low of mainly roses with added alstroemeria, germini, September and gyp.
 I also provided two tank you displays which were a summery mix of ivory, blue and cream.

Ivory roses and gyp bridal party flowers

 Alice's colour scheme was a vivid blue but she decided to keep the flowers to a neutral ivory and white. Her bouquet was a trailing hand tie of ivory roses with a mass of gyp and ruscus foliage with bear grass trails and loops.
 Her maids each carried a simple ivory rose hand tie with each rose wearing a diamante in its centre. The stems were wrapped in blue satin ribbon and pinned with more diamante.
 The groomsmen wore a single ivory rose with ruscus foliage
 and the groom had a sprig of gyp added to match his bride.
 One mum wore a single ivory rose with ruscus and bear grass loops
 while the other had a single ivory rose with ruscus, snake grass and sprig of gyp.

Purple, lilac and ivory bridal party flowers.

 A very popular colour over the last few years is the purple and lilac combination. Sarah wanted a traditional type bouquet and opted for a longer teardrop style which is very neat in the trail. The flowers used were ivory roses with purple and lilac eustoma and dark green ruscus foliage.
 These flowers work very well together especially in this type of design.
 The older bridesmaids each carried a hand tied design of the same flowers and foliage.

 The stems were wrapped in ivory satin ribbon.
 The flower girl carried a single white lily which was surrounded with purple eustoma and ruscus foliage.

 Mum wore a traditional corsage of roses and purple and lilace eustoma to match the bride.
 All the groomsmen wore a single white carnation with foliage.

The Lincolnshire Show

Purple and lilac shower bouquet
 Last Wednesday and Thursday I was one of a selection of suppliers in The Wedding Marquee at The Lincolnshire Show.
The marquee was provided by Keymarque and was full of a selection of suppliers including Elegant Touches by Emma Louise, Ed and Maggie Sewell photographers, Gillian Michelle bridal, various venues, a cake supplier, bridal hair stylist and a make up artist.
Crystal gem candelabra
 The colour scheme for my display was purple, lilacs and pinks with a British Flower theme running through the display to mark British Flower week.
English flower bridesmaid bouquet
 I have now found a few British flower suppliers that grow a good selection of traditional flowers and can now offer British flowers as well as the Dutch and Columbian flowers. Just ask when ordering if you would prefer a British flower selection.
English garden inspired candelabra ring
 The above display was a mix of flowers but inspired by a country garden.
Hanging birdcage
 My hanging birdcages are a great alternative in a marquee to add some much needed colour high up and are always hung high enough for your guests to see under.
 All my shephard crook displays were full of gorgeous British flowers that were full of scent and colour, great for lining an aisle or walkway as they are free standing.

 My display stand from The Lincolnshire Show.
 We were also treated to 2 bridal fashion shows a day, with the dresses provided by Gillian Michelle bridal.

 Hudson Lewis kept us entertained throughout both the shows and on and off all day with a varying range of songs. A great entertainer that will keep your guests up and dancing all night long.
