Annie and Ant | Colour Clash Wedding Flowers

29th May 2012

Saturday was the day Annie and Ant got wed. A stunning, summer’s day, you couldn’t have asked for more from the weather. I was really excited about doing wedding flowers in Devon this past weekend: the ceremony was held in a gorgeous village church, overlooking the sea at Barnstaple, and the reception was held at Castlehill, Filleigh. Look at the gardens below, such a beautiful view,  perfect to wander round with a glass of Pimms celebrating the newly wed’s big day!

Annie had always wanted their wedding to have a fun, laid back feel to the day, with the flowers to be vivid, clashing colours. The bridesmaids wore bright turquoise  dresses so we went for cerise, orange and yellow roses, yellow callas and cerise germini for the bridesmaid’s hand-tied bouquets. This colourful combination was completed by the use of lime green mollis foliage.

I love alchemilla mollis as a filler flower, it is available throughout the summer and looks not only great within vibrant, colourful bouquets, but also sits happily alongside the more neutral bouquets of whites, creams and greens too. Whilst taking photos of the wedding flowers I popped them into these multi coloured garden lanterns. The lanterns could make great table centres for wedding, and filled with flowers take on a completely new meaning!

I massively enjoyed doing wedding flowers for Annie and Ant, such a great couple with the fun loving, laid back attitude to their wedding. Wishing them all the love and happiness for their married life together!!


  • […] In May I did wedding flowers for Annie and Anthony who got married in North Devon. Here are a selection of the beautiful photos from their big day, thanks to wedding photographer Kate Mather. Annie opted for a very elegant and classic hand-tied bouquet of ivory avalanche roses, however the rest of the wedding was certainly a colourful affair! I really enjoyed doing these multi-coloured wedding flowers for Annie, it was lovely to have such a bright colour palette to work with. Read more about their big day in my previous post, here! […]
