Pastel daisy wedding flowers

The gorgeous pastel coloured daisy wedding of Fiona's is from April. She had a good idea of the main flowers she wanted to include, daisies, and the colours, chosing 3 differing colours for the bridesmaids. It was left to me to bring all this together using the styles of bouquets required. Fiona chose a large trailing style bouquet but in the natural hand tied form all tied together with a large bow.

Included in it were daisies, gerberas, freesia, bouvardia, roses, carnations and spray roses with eucalyptus and jasmine trails.

The 3 bridesmaids each carried a posy of daisies tied together with a bow.

They wore pastel pink, green and yellow dresses.

The 4 main groomsmen wore a buttonhole of a pale yellow gerbera with daisy heads and eucalyptus in a natural style tied with ribbon

The other ushers each wore a buttonhole of a small bunch of daisies.

The mum's each wore a corsage of a mix from the bride's bouquet. A gerbera, rose, spray roses, freesia and bouvardia with foliage.

One of the buttonhole presentation boards. These can be labelled if you provide us with the names of each guest.

The flower girls each wore a simple circlet of daisy heads.

These are just the wedding party flowers, more to follow tomorrow when we take a look at the ceremony and reception flowers at Doddington Hall.

If you have a specific flower you would like to include in your wedding or have a good idea of what style you want to achieve please get in touch. I can work with you if you know exactly what you want or if you have no clue where to start I just need your time to talk through options.

We are taking bookings for consultations between now and Christmas or book in early for January to kick start your plans. Call us today!

Lego inspired flower designs at Elsham Hall

V & R wedding ceremony and reception all took place at the lovely Elsham Hall. If you are looking for a barn setting for your day then you need to go talk to Elaine and her team.

Keeping the Lego theme going I was given 2 small Lego heads to add flowers to for the ceremony table

The same flowers were used as for the bouquets, delphiniums, gerbera, daisy, tulips, ranunculus, bupleurum and asparagus fern to add volume.

I was also given single Lego bricks on wires to add to all these displays.

These larger happy faces sat on the radiator covers during the service and were later transferred to the guest tables.

The top table was a little more traditional with a long and low display using the same flowers and colour mix as above.

This was certainly the most colourful wedding I have designed flowers for and made a welcome change from the usual whites and pastel shades. 
In this beautiful barn it goes to show any colours work. 

If you have booked here or any other barn setting and like the flowers you see, please get in touch to see how we at The Studio can style your day

Lego inspired wedding flowers

Back in April V & R got married at Elsham Hall. Having booked me for their flowers nearly 2 years in advance this was a wedding I had been looking forward to for ages. The whole day was to be styled around lego. From brightly coloured flowers to lego heads and blocks to be incorporated within the designs this was going to be a fun day.

The bride wanted a relaxed informal hand tie without being too big of spring time flowers but also in their chosen colours of orange, blue, green, yellow and red, with a splash of white. This matched the lego pieces which would adorn the venue. We agreed on gerbera, delphinium, ranunculus, tulips, daisy and bupleurum.

The bridesmaids each carried a similar but smaller bouquet. 

The groomsmen each had a colourful buttonhole of a ranuncula, tulip, delphinium floret and bupleurum with an individual lego superhero attached. These were provided by the couple.

These are so cute and really help personalize the flowers to this fun loving couple.

I wonder if there was any arguments over who was which super hero?

The mum's wore a delicate corsage of ranunculus, tulips, daisy and lily of the valley (added as a nod to a family member)

If you are thinking of having a bright and colourful wedding or want to add in any personlized bits and pieces to your flowers, please get in touch to see how we at The Studio can help you.

Venue flowers at Elsham Hall tomorrow.

Professional images of a winter wedding at Washingborough Hall

Following on from my posts earlier in the week I mentioned that I would post some professional images of the winter wedding at Washingborough Hall. Well here you are, beautiful stunning images from David Lowerson. He very kindly sent me these images and a few more to add to my portfolio. This also proves why you need a professional to take your shots on the day, so clear and light with so much detail on show.
If you are looking for a venue and a photographer I strongly suggest you check these suppliers out, links on the names above to websites.

If you do connect with either, please mention where you heard their names. I have no ties with either but it is always good to know where word of mouth comes from.

If you like the flowers in the images please do get in touch to discuss your own designs or if you are not getting wed please leave a comment below.

Winter wedding at Washingborough Hall

The ceremony and reception of yesterday's wedding were held at the beautiful Washingborough Hall Hotel. If you are looking for an all in venue with beautiful grounds then this has to be on your list. A Georgian manor house that is privately owned and has been lovingly restored makes a perfect venue for you and your guests.
The ceremony takes place in the gorgeous Winston room and Catriona kept the theme of gyp throughout the displays. A long gyp display adorned the ceremony table while large lanterns decorated the aisle.

Pumpkin vases of gyp were also dotted around the windowsills and plinths.

For the wedding breakfast gyp balls were sat on low conical vases allowing guests clear vision across the table allowing the natural flow of conversation.

In case you are wondering the chairs are brought in from the ceremony room while photographs are being taken. The tables are also spread out between the two rooms allowing lots of natural light in.

The top table had the gyp display from the ceremony display plus another section added and then the pumpkin vases were displayed along the rest of the length.

More tomorrow as I show you some of the professional images.

If you are getting married here at Washingborough Hall or any other Manor House venue please give me a call so we can discuss how you may set your flower style.

Winter wedding bridal bouquets

Looking back over this year I have not managed to keep blogging and therefore you have missed out on seeing many many magical weddings. It is time to put this right! 
It will also, hopefully, give you inspiration for you own flowers whether you are getting married in 2017, 2018 or 2019.
So to start;
This was Catriona's wedding from way back in January. Perfect flowers for a winter wedding.
The bridal bouquet was a hand tie posy of a mix of white and ivory freesia, ranunculus, bouvardia, spray roses and gyp with pitto foliage.

The stems were wrapped in gold satin ribbon and pinned with ivory pearl headed pins.

The bridesmaid wore navy blue dresses and each were given a posy of gyp to carry.

Stems matching the bridal bouquet.

The mum's each wore a corsage of a  mix of flowers from the bridal bouquet. If this works with their outfits I feel this is the perfect way to adorn their style.

The groomsmen each wore a small gyp buttonhole with a tie of gold ribbon to match the bridesmaids. Again a neat way to style everyone and bring the various outfits together.

Tomorrow we will look at the wedding ceremony set up and wedding breakfast tables at Washingborough Hall.

If you see any designs that you love or would like to discuss how I may help you choose your flowers please get in touch to book a free no obligation consultation
