Hana Venn Wedding Photography

One of the best aspects of being part of the wedding industry is meeting and working with other suppliers and one such supplier is Hana Venn-Richards of Hana Venn Wedding Photography

Hana’s relaxed and natural style of photography makes her a popular choice with couples who wish to have their wedding day captured as it takes place with limited formality

In 2017 we worked with Hana at 10 weddings and as you will see from the photos below her work is truly stunning. Having just returned from maternity leave, Hana still has some free dates for this year and is taking bookings for 2019 and beyond

We would highly recommend Hana so if you still need to find a photographer do get in touch with her via her website

A Memorable Winter Wedding

One year ago today we were deep in preparation for a very special day – the wedding of Sally’s daughter Vicky who married her fiancé Adam at Gate Street Barn, Bramley, Surrey.

Needless to say, there were huge expectations for the flowers which were all chosen to reflect the rustic winter theme of the wedding.

The Bridal bouquet and matching Bridesmaid bouquets consisted of the most beautiful white Anemones we have ever seen along with white Ranunculas, Silver Brunia, Senecio, Eucalyptus Populus foliage and natural pine cones. The bouquets also perfectly complimented the pewter grey dresses worn by the Bridesmaids.

Buttonholes of white Ranunculas, Silver Brunia, Rosemary, Eucalyptus Populus foliage and miniature pine cones were bound with twine to complete the rustic look.

The ceremony barn was decorated with Twisted Willow which was attached to the ends of the chairs together with white Hydrangeas and natural pine cones. Heart shaped pine cone wreaths and sacks of cinnamon scented pine cones were hung around the Barn and mixed foliage and Gypsophila were used to decorate the chandelier wheels. Lit birch trees and hurricane lamps on log slices hired from Streessfree Hire added a final finishing touch and added a warm Winter glow to the barn.

Following the ceremony, the barn was transformed for the wedding reception with tall cylinder vases surrounded by rings of pine cones and filled with arrangements of Pussy Willow, natural Birch and white Hydrangeas being placed in the centre of each table. Napkins were decorated with individual arrangements of Pussy Willow and Rosemary and miniature log slices, made by the Groom, were used to hold place and table names.

The seating plan was created with a wooden step ladder decorated with white Hydrangea filled lace bottles and an additional ladder plus a selection of wooden crates were filled with flowers to match the Bridal bouquet and in The Pheasantry a hot chocolate station created on a barrel table from Stressfree Hire with a macaron tower supplied by Queen Beas provided some welcome Winter warmth later in the day.

Whilst the wedding took place in Surrey, many of the suppliers used are Hampshire based, all having worked with Bridal Flowers Direct on a number of occasions and the day really would mot have been the same without their input.

Summer weddings will always be a popular choice for many couples, but we are definitely seeing an increase in the popularity of Winter weddings and as all the photographs courtesy of Hana Venn Photography show the colder months can be a magical time of year to get married.

Congratulations to Vicky and Adam on their first wedding anniversary this weekend and if you are planning a Winter wedding we hope this post will be inspirational.

Beach Themed Wedding

The Bride and her Mother had spent months making decorations and collecting and decorating various vases and jugs and the end result is stunning

Titchfield Great Barn – Rustic Wedding Setting

We were delighted to take part in a recent photo shoot which took place in the grounds of Titchfield Great Barn, an up and coming wedding venue near Fareham, Hampshire. The photo shoot was a collaboration of local businesses working together to show case their own particular products or services as well as providing inspiration for anyone planning a similar themed wedding or event.

In keeping with the theme of the event – ‘Rustic, Spring, French Style’ we made a selection of bouquets and table arrangements in shades of yellow, cream and white. By combining Spray Roses, Stocks, Tanacetum Daisies, Craspedia and Gypsophila with lovely silver grey Eucalyptus leaves we were able to create arrangements which truly reflected both the theme of the photoshoot and the rustic setting of the Barn. We also supplied the bicycle props which looked stunning decorated with a selection of the same flowers as did all our vintage style bottles which when filled with flowers are always perfect for events at a setting such as this.

We think you will agree the end results are stunning and highlight the talented wedding suppliers this area has to offer.
