Late Summer September Wedding with White Flowers

In early September with the last burst of summer flowers we travelled to Castle Combe in Wiltshire for Ashley & Rob's elegant wedding. The colour palette was a subtle mix of cream and white with a hint of pastel yellow.

Ashley's bouquet was wrapped in silk ribbon and filled with a beautiful mix of late summer blooms. Margret Merril Roses, Japanese Anemones, highly scented Nicotiana and delicate sweet peas still on the vine.

This picture (captured by Victoria Phipps) of Ashley attaching Rob's buttonholes before the ceremony is one of my favourites, I love the idea of this intimate moment between them just before they said their vows.

Due to the inclement weather, Ashley & Rob opted to change their outdoor ceremony to an indoor one a few days before the wedding. We created two large dramatic urn arrangements to stand either side of the couple as they said their vows, filled with tumbling vines and big blousy Dahlias and Hydrangeas.

For the wedding breakfast tables, we created high all-foliage arrangements as focal points in the room, surrounded by small bottles and vases with single stems and mini arrangements.

Faye & Dan - Pampas Heaven

The wedding of Dan & Faye, September 19th 2015. 

It's an amazing feeling when a Bride gives you free rein, armed with a colour palette of dusky pink, white and the late summer seasons this is what was created. The 10 bridesmaids were a slightly daunting task...
