Open Day Photographs

We were thrilled with the attendance at our last Open Day in October and have been very busy since then meeting up with couples to discuss their wedding flowers in more detail and putting together their quotes

Our next Open Day will take place in the Spring of 2019 and we will post the date as soon as it is fixed in the calendar. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy these photographs taken of some of the displays from October courtesy of  Hana Venn Photography – Hampshire Wedding Photographer

 

Tasha & Adam’s Wedding

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

Southdowns Manor Weddings

We are extremely lucky to be located in an area which has so many beautiful wedding venues and one such venue is Southdowns Manor.

Located in the heart of the South Downs National Park, this stunning exclusive use venue is the perfect choice for your wedding.

Whilst the venue can cater for up to 150 guests, it is also suitable for smaller, more intimate weddings and the friendly professional team ensure the smooth running of your wedding right from the initial planning stages to the end of your ‘big’ day.

As a preferred supplier we are delighted to regularly work with couples marrying at Southdowns Manor. The venue is a blank canvas when it comes to flower choices and we have supplied everything from classic and formal to more rustic and relaxed arrangements.

We have recently received photographs from two Southdowns Manor weddings we supplied in December 2017 which show examples of different styles of work.

Katherine and Steve requested that all their flowers work around the rose gold theme they had chosen. Katherine’s bouquet consisted of ivory Garden Roses, Sweet Avalanche and Earl Grey Roses, white Ranunculas with silver grey tones being picked up in the Trailing Amaranthus, Senecio and Eucalyptus Populus foliage. The two Bridesmaid’s carried single stems of ivory Garden Roses which were bound with rose gold wire. Buttonholes were made with ivory spray Roses with foliage to compliment the Bridal bouquet and were also bound with rose gold wire. Katherine had meticulously sprayed a selection of jars and bottles with rose gold paint which we filled with a selection of flowers to match the Bridal Party Arrangements and then placed in the centre of each of the guest tables. Garlands of Eucalyptus Populus foliage and the smallest LED lights we have ever seen were used to adorn signage placed around the venue and wooden crates in the entrance hall.

Following their wedding we received this lovely email from Katherine and Steve –

” We both want to thank you soooo much for all of your hard work on our wedding day! The flowers were stunningly beautiful & the decor you created was incredible! I wish you could’ve seen our reaction when we saw everything you had done! My bouquet was absolutely perfect, you honestly did such an amazing job & we are so thankful! Right from the beginning you’ve been so helpful every step of the way!

We’ve had a house full of flowers over Christmas, I loved it!

Many thanks & much love, Katherine & Steve xxx”

Nikki and Mike chose flowers in shades of ivory, blue and silver for their 28th December wedding. Nikki’s bouquet was created using Avalanche Roses, ivory spray Roses, blue Eryngium and Gypsophila with Silver Brunia, Senecio, silver Pine Cones and Eucalyptus Populus foliage providing the accents of silver. Bridesmaid’s carried smaller versions of the Bridal bouquet and all the buttonholes consisted of a selection of the same flowers including mini silver pine cones in the buttonhole worn by the Groom. Silver votives filled with Gypsophila and blue Eryngium surrounded the crystal tea light holders supplied by the Venue and a garland of foliage interspersed with votives and hurricane lamps ran along the length of the top table.

Despite it being December, Nikki and Mike were blessed with a beautiful day weather wise and the amazing photos courtesy of Lucy Lou Photography highlight the way the flowers truly complimented the time of year

If you wish to see more examples of our work and discuss your own wedding flowers why not come along to our Bridal Flower Open Day which takes place on Saturday 17th March at our premises in Horndean from 10am – 4 pm

Autumn Wedding Flower Inspiration

As the days become shorter and the countryside around us turns distinctly autumnal, we thought we would share with you some Autumn wedding flower inspiration.

Typically, when thinking of Autumn flowers we would generally recommend warm, rich colours in accents of orange, burgundy and red. We would also suggest the inclusion of a selection of berries, seedheads, pine cones and wheat for texture and interest and to add to the overall autumnal feel

Below are photos from a few of our September and October 2016 Brides who chose different but all equally very autumnal colour schemes for their wedding flowers

Hannah – 16th September 2016

Hannah’s bridal party arrangements consisted of orange Dahlias, Scabious Seedheads, yellow Craspedia Balls, dark red Hypericum Berries, cream Stocks, cream Spray Roses, Wheat, Umbrella Fern and Rosemary which all tied in beautifully with the differing shades of her Bridesmaids dresses

Anushka – 17th September 2016

Anushka chose dark red Dahlias, orange Roses, orange spray Roses, dark red Hypericum Berries, Pine Cones, Wheat and complimenting dark green foliage to tie in with the red dresses worn by her Bridesmaid’s. The theme continued into the Venue arrangements with led lights immersed in orange gel pearls creating a lovely autumnal ambience on the tables which were also scattered with oak leaves and pine cones

Hana – 6th October

We were delighted to supply the flowers for wedding photographer Hana’s wedding in October 2016. Burgundy Dahlias, Cosmos, Astrantia and Hypericum berries were mixed with peach Garden Roses, red Skimmea and berried Eucalyptus Populus foliage to create her stunning bouquet with the same flowers being used to fill beer bottles for her venue arrangements
