I was so excited when Sarah and Lee got in touch about providing wedding flowers for their wedding at Westonbirt Arboretum. It is such a beautiful place, so what a stunning location for a wedding! I arrived to decorate the venue with the sun shining through blue skies, and thought WOW!! Sarah and Lee had a really good vision for their wedding and understood the natural beauty of the Great Oak Hall and the amazing back drop of the woodland of the Arboretum that this venue provided.
Sarah’s bridal bouquet was filled with Cezanne roses, white freesia, and white ranunculus. Sarah and Lee were keen to use seasonal spring flowers within their wedding, however Sarah really wanted to include the most stunning Cezanne rose in her bouquet. A rose with a green and pink tinge, this worked so well with the ivory palette and topped off with using eucalyptus, rosemary foliage, ferns and fountain grass this added the unusual mix of texture witin the bouquet.
The boys had tied buttonholes of ranunculus and freesia with rosemary, fern and eucalytpus sprigs, tied off with natural twine.
Sarah and Lee wanted to carry on the spring woodland wedding theme throughout the day so the reception flowers were loose, spring arrangements filled with narcissi, freesia, ranunculus, lisianthus with a variety of woodland foliage and the added extras on scabiosa seed pods and moss. The moss added the woodland feel to the arrangements and would have looked great on the dark green table runners that were accessorising the tables.
Sarah and Lee wanted fresh flower confetti at their wedding, so I filled three baskets with hydrangea petals. Apparantly they are the best flowers to throw to get good flower confetti shots.
It was lovely to work with a couple who had such a clear idea of what they were looking for from their wedding flowers, and working in such a naturally, beautiful environment such as the Arboretum really topped off the day for me! Great couple.. Great wedding, I am a happy florist! Lots of love to Sarah and Lee xxx
