Sunflowers at Markham Moor Inn

Our lovely couple held their summer wedding breakfast at The Markham Moor Inn.

Low posies made a bright table centrepiece using the same flowers as the bridal bouquet, sunflowers, freesia and cornflowers, with the addition of yellow chrysants and yellow spotted laurel.




Small yellow santini chrysants are like mini sunflowers



The wedding cake was adorned with more sunflowers, freesia and cornflowers




Cake topper of sunflowers and freesia and corsages on each tier



Small posies were provided for adding to small jars collected by the bride for extra decoration



Lastly a thank you hand tie in the same wedding flowers for that extra special person who helped set the day.



Sunflowers are not to everyones taste at a wedding but they are a bright happy flower and add a sense of fun to the day.

Bride sunflower bouquet

Sunflowers are a popular wedding flower although many people think they are probably not suitable. Florists can get lovely sized flowers just right for your bouquets and buttonholes, just ask!

This lovely bride wanted a bright bouquet with this sunny flower included. We added another favourite flower, freesia and cornflowers for a hint of blue.



Due to the sunflowers we bound the length of the stems in satin ribbon



Beautiful sunflowers, freesia and cornflowers


The groomsmen all wore a single, small, sunflower for their buttonholes



I present these on a board for easy collection on the day


Traditional lapel corsages were presented to the special ladies, these were of freesia florets and foliage





All ready for their special day.


More to follow on the wedding breakfast set up.

If you have a favourite flower and want it included in your wedding blooms get in touch for a chat.

Pretty wedding flowers at St Peter at Eastgate


Unfortunately the weather on this wedding day was not great, but they do say rain on your wedding day is good luck! A wet (marriage) knot is harder to break and therefore the marriage lasts longer.

The bride asked for pretty posies to be attached to the open gateway of the church to welcome the guests.


Pretty pink santini chrysants, pale alstroemeria, gyp and herbs were tied with hessian bows to the gate posts.


The church doorway was framed with 2 of my gorgeous bay trees and ribbons.


Once inside the church each row of chairs had a pretty gyp ball attached with a hessian bow.


Simple understated design but en mass brightens up the aisle


The church screen was adorned with fern, myrtle and ivy trails



Looking to the rear of the church as the groom would do waiting for his bride.

Country style bride bouquet with gyp bridesmaid flowers

A pretty spring wedding with country style bride's bouquet.
Some flowers can be overlooked for weddings but are perfectly cute and help you keep to budget. This bouquet included, alstroemeria, santini chrysants, gyp, eustoma and ferns, ivy and herbs. Creating a gorgeous trailing hand tie.



Pretty pink blooms with gyp interwoven throughout and stems bound with twine to match the country style of the day.


Alstroemeria and santini chrysants come in many colours and with many flowers per stem are real value for your money.


The bridesmaids carried gyp ball posies



Bouquets waiting to be delivered to their ladies.


Another lovely natural wedding with a bride and bridesmaid posies.
