Choosing just one or two colours for your wedding doesn’t have to mean that your flowers look flat or lost within your venue. Below is an example of a tablescape in simple modern glassware filled with all pink flowers. Other than the odd splash of green every flower in this design is a different shade of pink, drawing your eye up and down the table showing you pink doesn’t have to mean blush.
From baby soft pinks, too orangey coral pinks, vibrant hot pink and dirty brown toned pinks, each flower has its own subtle shade of pink and when used all together they become an explosion of colour.
Having a mixture of different sized vessels with varied heights adds depth and interest to the display, adding in taller flowers gives your designs movement while the short flowers like perennial gyp or amaranthus bring texture to the table.
Part 03 will be about unusual colour schemes…
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.
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.

Honestly I don't just do pink flowers. It just happens to be my favourite right now, lets says I am stuck in my pink phase.
I feel white might be my next, maybe with a hint of pink...
