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.
Raff carried an all foliage bouquet, while Leonie had a bouquet of garden Roses, Phlox and Poppies with pops of gold and red throughout.
For this July wedding a foliage oasis was created in a glass marquee at the family home where slim foliage table garlands complimented the seasonal hanging foliage above.
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.

Jen and Scott had a very specific colour scheme for their summer wedding in London, every flower had to be shades of either red or gold.
Jen's bridal bouquet was filled with vibrant bold garden Roses, flaming red Zinnias and scarlet Dahlias, we added touches of gold with yellow and orange Marigolds and blowsy buttercup coloured garden Roses.
The delicate buttonholes were wrapped in tonal ombre silk ribbons, each buttonhole slightly different to the last and filled with unusual homegrown garden flowers.
Their wedding breakfast centrepieces were filled with bold red and gold flowers, dotted down their long dining tables, intermingled with single flower stems in tiny ceramic red pomegranates. At the end of the evening a few of Jen and Scott's lucky guests were able to take home a centrepiece, to treasure for a few more days.

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.
