Summer wedding on an Essex Island

In August last year we loaded up the van and headed for the Essex coastline, our destination was Osea Island. Osea Island is an island in the River Blackwater that our lovely couple Martha and Ed had hired for the weekend.

Their secret garden ceremony had an aisle lined with bunches of seasonal foliage tied to vintage chairs with silk. A very large statement urn stood at the entrance to the garden filled with large Cafe au Lait Dahlias and trailing mile a minute vines.

Martha and Ed held their wedding breakfast within an old industrial building on the island, the Powerhouse, this was a great space with a blank canvas for us to create a focal point. 
Martha trusted us completely to create a wild installation piece for behind the top table. This large wild and sprawling installation piece bloomed out of the window as if growing through the cracks in the wall, using vines and seasonal foliage we created delicate intertwining gardens that covered the wall behind the top table. 
Their wedding breakfast tables were decorated with simple glass bottles and vessels with small arrangements and single stems, we gathered tiny perfectly coloured apricots that were growing in the secret garden to add to the tablescape. 

Unique Essex Wedding Flowers

The installation piece was filled with tall elegant white Cosmos, fluffy white Scabious, pale delicate pink and cream garden Roses and dainty Japanese Anemones.

Martha carried a bouquet packed full of heady garden Roses, delicate Hydrangeas and evening scented Nicotiana, wrapped in simple cream and pale pink silk ribbons. 

Shout out to Paula & Lily, who made the weekend very memorable. The planner was Charlie from London Bride.

London wedding with hanging foliage

Leonie and Raff were married in July on a beautiful Summer's day at Leonie's family home in London. This Summer wedding had a palette of white, cream and green, using all of the best summer flowers, including tall and airy Ammi and delicate summer Roses.

The ceremony took place outside in front of a gateway style arch that appeared to grow out of the ground. The couple stood above a flower bed which we planted with Ammi, grasses and Orlaya to create a wild meadow feel. We designed and made mini meadows and trailing pew ends to line the aisle.

Unique Dorset wedding with wildflowers

In late August 2017 we headed down to Dorset for Catherine and Thomas' Summer wedding, it was the perfect weather for their outdoor ceremony and marquee wedding.

Catherine's bouquet was filled with blowsy cream and pink Roses, lace like Hydrangeas, delicate caramel Phlox and the most exquisite pale pink Hollyhock, all of the best blooms that late Summer had to offer. 

It was the perfect mixture of dirty pink and cream with just a few hints of gold, finished off with long trailing silk ribbons in ombre pink and white. 

Thomas and his groomsmens' buttonholes were delicate little bunches of dark pink Roses, Nigella seed pods and wild seasonal garden pickings. Each just a little different to the last, and then tied with white silk ribbon.

Catherine and Thomas were married at the groom's family home, opting for an outdoor ceremony. We designed a unique bespoke ceremony backdrop created with arching branches of seasonal foliage and vines, with wild garden inspired meadow footers filled with fluffy tall grasses and seasonal summer blooms.
