We were so delighted to see so many couples attend our Open Day in October and even more delighted that many of them have now booked us to supply the flowers for their 2017 weddings.
We have just received these stunning photos from Hana Venn Photography who joined us on the day. We have worked with Hana on many of our 2016 weddings and even supplied the flowers for her own wedding a few weeks ago.
For those of you who were unable to make the Open Day these are a taster of the displays we had on show and also notice that our 2017 Open Days are to take place on Saturday 11th March and Saturday 14th October so please do make a note of these in your 2017 diaries when you get them

Bridal Flowers Direct were delighted to supply the flowers for the wedding of Sarah Baudains (née Griffiths) which took place on Saturday 27th July 2013 at Petersfield Registry Office followed by a reception at East Dean Village Hall.
Whilst the Bridal Party Arrangements were made by us, Sarah arranged her own venue flowers with the help of willing family members.
Following the wedding Sarah sent us the following message –
Apologies for this being rather delayed, but I just wanted to say thank you so much for doing the flowers for our wedding on 27th July. They all looked beautiful and I couldn’t have asked for anything more!
We’re still waiting for our professional photos but I would be happy to send you some of the flowers once we have them if you’d like.
Below is a selection of photographs taken by photographer Alison Gaudion (www.gaudions.co.uk)
Bridal Flowers Direct supplied flowers to 7 Brides over the Bank Holiday Weekend which resulted in our in house florists creating 7 Bridal Bouquets, 25 Bridesmaid/Flower Girl Bouquets, 73 Buttonholes & 19 corsages plus 8 Table Arrangements, a Flower Girl Hair Circlet, 2 Flower Girl Wands, 2 Cake Top Arrangements, 3 Presentation Bouquets and Hair Decorations for 1 Bride and her 5 Bridesmaids. Thank goodness for our cold storage unit which keeps all the arrangements at peak freshness until they are delivered or collected.
No time for a rest though as we have another 6 weddings booked in for next weekend!
Below is a selection of the bouquets we made for last weekend’s weddings
Rhinefield House in the New Forest was the setting for the wedding of Jason & Katie. The Bride and Groom had selected a Maritime Theme to tie in with their honeymoon of a Mediterranean Cruise. The Bridesmaids were wearing Teal dresses so flowers in shades of cream and pale yellow were chosen to compliment this colour scheme.
On our arrival at Rhinefield House, the Brides Father was busy setting up the rope on the gallery overlooking the ceremony room from which our arrangements were then hung.
Congratulations to the new Mr & Mrs Guidon and we look forward to seeing the official photographs soon
Idsworth Church and Hollybank House, Emsworth were the settings for the wedding of Alastair and Sarah.
As the Bride and Groom were not arriving in the UK from their home in the United States until the week of the wedding, transatlantic emails between the Bride and Bridal Flowers Direct had to suffice for the design and supply of all the arrangements. However, the photographs of the end results prove that modern technology can be successfully used when a face to face consultation is not possible.
Sarah was adamant that she wished all the flowers to reflect the country setting of the wedding location whilst keeping to her white and green theme.
The photographs below show the delivery and set up of all the arrangements at the Church and Marquee.
Our congratulations to the new Mr & Mrs Callender who have promised us more photographs of their wedding day in the near future.
Gate Street Barn, Bramley was the idyllic setting for the wedding of Jemma and Russell and it was a beautiful sunny July morning when Bridal Flowers Direct arrived at the Barn to deliver the Bridal Party and Porch Arrangements.
Jemma had decided she wished all the arrangements to compliment the English country setting of the Barn, in the heart of the Surrey countryside, and meticulous planning had gone into all the flowers with the help of her Auntie Di. Following several consultations with Sally of Bridal Flowers Direct the style and design of all the arrangements were finalised with Jemma even asking us to supply her with a mock up of her Bridal bouquet – such was her attention to every detail.
Jemma and Di wished to make all the venue arrangements themselves but required us to make the Bridal Party and Porch Arrangements.
As you can see from the photos below the finished results were stunning. Jemma and Di were both such a pleasure to work with and we have been promised more photos once Jemma and Russell return from their honeymoon in the Seychelles.
Everyone at Bridal Flowers Direct wishes Jemma & Russell every future happiness
Upper Parsonage Barn, East Meon was the setting for the wedding of Mic & Emma on Friday. The couple had chosen arrangements in vibrant pinks and purples with all their vases filled with LED lights. As you will see from the photographs below the finished results were stunning.
We have already received the following email from Mic and Emma –
“Hi Sally, thank you so much for our beautiful flowers they were amazing.
We will be in contact with you again in a few weeks hopefully with a photo or two.
Mic & Emma”
Later on Friday, saw us setting up at South End Barn, Donnington on the outskirts of Chichester for the Saturday wedding of Gemma and James. In complete contrast to the previous wedding this couple had chosen classic white flowers for their Bridal Party and venue arrangements. The silver candelabras on the tables complimented the spectacular surroundings of the Barn.
Congratulations to Mic & Emma and Gemma & James
