Gyp wedding flowers

A lovely gyp wedding I had the honour of creating a couple of weeks ago. Another bride who I have never met! All consulting had been achieved over email, passing photos she liked and talking colours.

The bridal bouquet was gorgeous sweet avalanche roses interspersed through a cloud of gyp.

The two bridesmaids each carried a posy of cloud of gyp

the three lovely bouquets together.

The groomsmen buttonholes were also little posies of gyp.

The service was to be held at Buckminster church where alternate pews were decorated with more posies of gyp and long tailed organza bows.

Grooms eye view towards his brides entrance.

The lovely barn at Buckminster is a venue I hadn't visited before but is a gorgeous space for a wedding reception.

The bride had bought these vintage style jugs and asked me for gyp to fill them. Nothing regiment, just stems to fill.

The stunning view from the barn from the large car park.

If you are looking for a small - medium sized venue to the south of our county then Buckminster Barn is worth looking at. Upstairs was set up for the reception but also has a downstairs room and plenty of space outside for fun and games which were also being set up whilst I was there.

If you want gyp for your wedding flowers and these have inspired you, please get in touch to book a consultation to get your flower planning journey started.

Look forward to hearing from you soon

Pink lily wedding

On sorting through my photos, it is a long job, I came across this wedding which has never appeared on the blog.
I have had interest in this bouquet at consultations so thought I would share with you all today.

A gorgeous teardrop bouquet totally in shades of pink. The centre star is a lovely asiatic lily with diamante detailing with a mix of sweet avalanche roses and pink eustoma and ivy trails.

A glorious bouquet for a bride who loves lilies.

The bridesmaids carried a small posy of a single lily flower surrounded with pink roses and cream eustoma.

The ladies corsages were a mass of cream eustoma one with black leaves

and one with green.

The grooms buttonhole was a pink rose with eustoma flowers, ivy leaves and diamante.

We also provided the long and low for the top table created with the same flowers as the bouquets, lilies, eustoma and roses. Add in some silver grass loops to blend in with the table centrepieces.

The gorgeous top table with thrones for the happy couple at Lucarlys at Grimsby.

If you love lilies and are wanting to include them in your wedding flowers please talk to us and we can show you many more options for styling your day.

Purple wedding bouquets

Today we look at colour. Most brides will pick a main colour and then one or two accent colours but you can go rainbow or no particular colour scheme, but it does help you to have a focused colour. This will usually be the colour your bridesmaids are wearing. This, along with your dress, will determine the colour and style (along with your venue) of your whole day.
We start this series of posts off with the colour Purple.
A very popular colour a few years ago, it is slightly out of favour at the minute but a favourite of mine and a lovely palette of colour to blend.

With your colouring, you don't have to stick rigid to one shade, indeed flowers always look better if a range of shades are included as long as the tones match. So with purple you have lilac, lavender, violet, mauve and plum.

So to the flowers;
Amnesia roses are a dusky/dirty lilac colour and these are with ivory roses and gyp

One of the true purple flowers eustoma. This bouquet has a mix of purple, violet, two tone and white eustoma with grasses.

The smaller version for the bridesmaid

Or you could have a tighter posy of just the flower heads. Same flowers as above, different look.

Don't forget your flower girls, these wands with eustoma and campanula flowers are so sweet.

I hope this has given you some ideas for your own purple themed bouquets. As ever for more ideas scroll through 'labels' and go to Colour:Purple......

Blush, ivory and gyp wedding

On Saturday I had the huge pleasure of delivering Danielle's wedding flowers.
She chose our popular design of Quicksand and ivory roses, gyp, brunia, Senecio and eucalyptus. This is a stunning bouquet with scented flowers and foliage and the colours are gorgeous.

The eucalyptus is back to being at it's very best this time of year

and the British gyp was gorgeous and fluffy.

The three bridesmaids bouquets were packed with gyp and stems bound with satin ribbon.

The ladies bouquets all together.

The groomsmen also wore gyp buttonholes with satin ribbon detail.

As is always the case, 2 extras were ordered very last minute and I always aim to please.
The page boy had his own tiny buttonhole mounted on a safety pin.

These wedding flowers started life as one of the budget packages with an upgrade for the bride's bouquet and extra bouquet and buttonholes. See here for full details of our budget wedding package offers.
If you would like to discuss your options, please email with what you need and any special requests for additions.
