At the end of August I was lucky enough to head up to Priston Mill twice in one weekend delivering beautiful wedding flowers for two lucky couples! Elena came to me asking for natural and rustic looking wedding flowers in coral, peach, cream and ivory tones. I must admit I am a little bit in love with her bouquet, which I filled with Miss Piggy roses, Talea roses, white dahlias, and Vuvuzela roses.
I used nigella, peach lisianthus and white stocks to add texture and help to add the the natural looking bouquet Elena was after. Foliage wise, senecio, eucalyptus and some pale grey sprigs from a bush I have in my garden (sorry no name, not the best gardener here!) finished off the bouquet perfectly! I tied the bouquet with beautiful cotton lace, so pretty don’t you think?
The bridesmaids carried bouquets of all gypsophila, a great alternative to carrying a bouquet of mixed flowers, and as the girls were wearing warm coral coloured dress, the softness of the gyp would have looked fab here.
Priston Mill is such a beautiful stone barn and Elena and Chris chose to get married in the barn, I decorated the ceremony table with a long and low arrangement filled with all of the above flowers. This was then moved to the top table during the reception, which is a great idea to make use of all your wedding flowers throughout the day!
I decorated the chairs with tiny bunches of gyp which were tied to the chair with ivory ribbon. A simple touch, but a really effective way of adding a pretty accent to the chairs running down the aisle.
Dawn was married at Priston Mill on the Sunday and chose a pretty colour palette of ivory, lilac and green for her wedding flowers. Her bouquet contained Avalanche ivory roses, lilac freesia, lilac veronica, green hypericum berries, green bell foliage and eucalyptus foliage. Dawn wanted the bouquets to look neat and compact yet full of texture and interest.
Dawns three bridesmaids carried smaller versions of the bridal bouquet and the boys had ivory rose buttonholes with green bell foliage and hypericum berries. A very pretty wedding in a simple, classic colour combination of ivory and lilac.
It was lovely to see Emily, from Beauty by Emily Faith a great Bristol based make up artist who was setting to work on the girls when I arrived. Such a friendly face it is always nice to bump into fellow wedding professionals when on my travels! Highly recommended and we have worked together on a few weddings this year!
