This weekend I delivered the most beautiful wedding flowers to Foxhill Manor in the Cotswolds! It was my first visit here to this beautiful wedding venue, and it was an absolute joy to fill it with summer blooms for Sarah and Tim. Sarah came to me with such a clear vision of how she wanted her wedding flowers to look, and I was so thrilled when she booked me as they couldn’t have been more right up my street! I would love to share with you a few of my phone pictures from the day and send all my love to the happy couple!
Sarah wanted to stick to ivory, soft peach and cream tones for her wedding flowers, and was keen to use more natural, loose looking blooms arranged in a romantic, natural way. It was an absolute pleasure creating these flowers and just look at her bouquet! I used ivory dahlias, David Austin ‘Juliet’ roses, soft peach spray roses, astrantia, asclepias and a mix of various foliage including grasses and peach hypericum spray. The bouquet was finished off with exquisite silk, trailing ribbons, which will be the perfect accompaniment to Sarah’s stunning dress!
Sarah had three bridesmaids and they each carried a bouquet filled with similar blooms. The boys had ivory spray rose buttonholes with rosemary and eucalyptus.
Sarah and Tim were married in the most pretty Cotswolds church in Broadway, I love the Cotswold stone, it has such a soft look to it and funnily enough matched the wedding flowers perfectly! Large stone urns, filled with a natural looking arrangement looked fab. Filled with larkspur, hydrangeas, blowsy roses, stocks and lisianthus they really do add the wow factor to any wedding ceremony.
The reception was held at Foxhill Manor, a beautiful private manor house hotel in the Cotswolds. It was my first visit decorating Foxhill Manor with wedding flowers and it was a real joy, with the most friendly and helpful staff! The tables were dressed with candelabra and bud vases surrounding the base. This added splashes of colour on the table without taking away impact from the candelabra.
The top table was decorated with low, cut glass vases filled with seasonal summer blooms. Behind the top table I dressed the mantel with a wild looking arrangement, providing the perfect backdrop for the main table.
Congratulations Sarah and Tim it is always such an honour to be asked to provide someone’s wedding flowers…working in such a beautiful venue like this.. and they call this work?!
Ps I have a new favourite rose… this darker one here is called cappachino and its the most stunning, soft, muted shade I have seen and works perfectly alongside the peach and ivory, just roughing it up slightly in an every so elegant way of course!
