I have the most beautiful wedding flowers at Elmore Court to share with you today! Kate and Alex were married this July in the most stunning wedding at Cotswold venue Elmore Court. Kate came to me with amazing ideas to incorporate tropical foliage within the wedding. Yet still keeping the overall look to their day elegant and timeless. These photos from Naomi Kenton are just wonderful! Happy Wedding Day guys, it was an absolute pleasure working with you on your big day! Now feast your eyes on this blog for some serious wedding inspiration!
Kate choose all ivory blooms for the bouquets, so I focused on using seasonal flowers such as roses, dahlias, astilbe and stocks. We wanted to use lots of foliage for texture here within the bouquets. So I added in eucalyptus, trailing ferns, woodland ferns, wigelia and mimosa. The bridesmaids wore mixed beaded dresses so we kept their bouquets slightly more simple and delicate. The bridal bouquet always has to have more impact and Kate really wanted a natural, trailing bouquet. I love working with Noami as she captures the wedding flowers like no one else!
For the ceremony at Elmore Court we created a statement tropical foliage outside in the beautiful gardens. We initially we began creating the arch inside due to weather, but Alex and Kate had always planned to be married outside so we all did a sun dance and stuck with it! The ceremony took place outside in the end luckily! I love working outside it is always so much fun and the flowers and foliage really fit into the outdoor environment, merging into the existing nature. This arch was then moved inside to the Gillyflower and provided the perfect Photo Booth backdrop for guests and family!
The Gilly Flower:
The tables were a mix of tall silver candelabra with a modern yet elegant arrangement of tropical foliage such as monstera leaves, palm leaves and aspidistra. We added ivory seasonal blooms such as hydrangeas and roses to the arrangements to add that luxurious feel. The other half of the tables contained a low foliage arrangement with giant ivory balloons. The Gilly Flower is always such a cool space to dress, with the large airy windows bringing the outside in! Quite often the ceremony flowers can be moved over afterwards, so meadow runners that dress the aisle work well in the low window ledges behind the top table for example.
Absolutely beautiful photos as ever from Naomi Kenton’s preview, I cannot wait to see the rest!
