I have the most stunning Crowcombe Court Wedding Flowers to share with you today. Nadja and Dan were married in September at this exclusive Somerset wedding venue and I was thrilled to work with Nadja on creating a beautiful natural foliage heavy wedding, yet one that oozed elegance and luxury too. As a Devon wedding florist we get to work in the most beautiful placed and Crowcombe Court is a fabulous wedding venue at the foot of the Quantocks. Growing up in Somerset we spent lots of time walking in the quantocks and I can safely say it is one of my favourite places!
Nadja wanted to focus on a classically elegant ivory colour palette yet add lots of texture and interest with foliage. The bridesmaids dresses were the most amazing olive satin and so lots of the design stemmed from these. By using foliage throughout in various shades we created interest in an all white colour palette. Deep green ruskus and fern, through to the softer more muted greens of the eucalyptus, alongside British grown beech, which really added the natural look to the designs.
The wedding took place in September, which is a great month for wedding flowers. Dahlias are at their best in September so we used a wide range of varieties from the smaller pom pom, to the larger more star shaped dahlias. Again these are British grown, alongside cosmos and dill. I really enjoy adding elements of British grown florals to my weddings. The homegrown flowers tend to be a bit more natural, and add those all important 'twiddly' bits to bouquets that are so important in adding texture and interest.
Nadja and Dan were married at St Mary's Magdalene church in Taunton, which is a super beautiful church with a rather grand interior. We created a full floral arch at the entrance to the church. Floral arches are the most luxurious way to greet your guests and decorate the start of your ceremony. We used huge foliage branches, and flower clusters of beautiful blousy roses and spray roses. I love the photos of Nadja and Dad emerging from the church as Mr and Mrs... the floral arches are the perfect backdrop to your confetti shot too! Just ask your photographer for confetti shot tips... we provide fresh hydrangea petal confetti, which is the best at floating down gently to create the perfect shots.
After the ceremony guests went to the luxurious Somerset wedding venue. We loved providing Crowcombe Court wedding flowers and worked inside the venue and also the Abbas Marquee which was erected on site. The long marquee tables were lined with tall glass vases with a large natural arrangement on the top. The round tables were dressed with a low, elegant urn arrangement filled with seasonal blooms.
A floral arch was arranged at the entrance to the marquee to greet guests and the meadow floral aisle church arrangements sat infant of the top table, which looked incredible. Native British trees such as birch and beech were arranged throughout the edge of the marquee to provide lush green foliage and height to the decoration. If you are looking for truly stylish marquee flowers, then this is the wedding for you. Huge thank you to Amy Sampson Photography for these stunning images.
