On a blistering hot July day, we attended the wedding of our very own Tasha and her fiancé Adam
Tasha and Adam held their wedding in the grounds of the farm of a family friend and Tasha’s meticulous planning and attention to detail was evident throughout the day
Tasha had chosen flowers in a selection of pale peachy pinks and mint greens to tie in with the colours of the Bridesmaid’s and Flower Girl’s dresses
Beautiful loose and natural hand tied bouquets of David Austin ‘Charity’ Roses, ‘Ador Avalanche’ Roses, ‘Galina’ & ‘Bombastic’ Spray Roses, green Lisianthus, white Astilbe, Thlaspi Green Bell, berried Eucalyptus Populus & Rosemary were carried by the Bride and her adult Bridesmaids whilst her Flower Girl carried a wand decorated with the same flowers and wore a hair circlet of Rosemary and Waxflower. Tasha wore a hair crown of ‘Galina’ & ‘Bombastic’ Spray Roses, Thlaspi Green Bell, Rosemary & berried Eucalyptus Populus foliage
Milk churns with a selection of the same flowers plus white Delphiniums, white Larkspur and ‘Wedding Rose’ Roses were placed at the head of the aisle with the Bride and Groom stood in front of an arch decorated with the same flowers and foliage. Beer bottles filled with flowers were placed on log slices beside hay bales along the length of the aisle
The tables in the marquee were decorated with central table runners of Eucalyptus Nicholi and berried Eucalyptus Populus, Rosemary and Soft Ruscus interspersed with clusters of flowers to match the Bridal Party Flowers. Hoops of the same foliage were hung from the ceiling of the marquee and a step ladder and wooden crates decorated with flower filled bottles provided further decoration
The wedding cake was dressed with Roses and Eucalyptus and placed on a large wooden log slice
Despite the intense heat it was the most amazing day from start to finish and we wish Tasha and Adam every future happiness

If you are planning a white themed wedding then these photographs from Sharon’s wedding at Old Thorns Manor Hotel last July may provide you with inspiration. Whilst Sharon chose Avalanche Roses and Gypsophila for the Bridal Party arrangements, to compliment the emerald green dresses worn by the Bridesmaids, the table arrangements consisted of tall vases filled with white Oriental Lilies which created a stunning look in the Grand Ballroom where the reception following their ceremony took place
Following her wedding, Sharon wrote this lovely review of our services –
“I would highly recommend Bridal Flowers Direct – From the build up, the actual day and even after my wedding. Sally made me feel like I was her only client (which I clearly wasn’t), They provided my 10 bridesmaid bouquets, my bouquet, 10 button holes, 13 centre pieces and additional flowers for the ceremony. Each stem was perfect and arranged beautifully to make my venue and photos perfect and better than I had imagined.”
