I have the most beautiful Frogmill wedding flowers to share with you today at The Frogmill in the cotswolds. Jess and James were married back in May. The couple choose a tropical foliage theme for their big day. The wedding decor was inspired by their love of houseplants and I loved getting involved in such a different brief! Jess runs her own business as a make up artist Jess Mills MUA, and her sister is Olivia a wedding planner from Host Weddings and Events. So expect to see huge attention to detail on this big day, with lots of beautiful, special touches. Absolutely stunning photos as always from wedding photographer Albert Palmer.
It was my first time providing wedding flowers at The Frogmill. A relatively new venue outside Cheltenham and what a beautiful space! Jess was always keen from the start to focus around tropical foliage such as palm leaves, monstera and aspidistra leaves. For the bouquets I added in pure white orchids, amongst the selection of foliage. The orchids really did stand out and make a real statement within the bouquets. Jess and her two sisters as bridesmaids looked absolutely stunning! As you can see by the amazing photos from Albert Palmer. One of my favourite photographers, his work is second to none and captures each wedding just perfectly.
For the wedding ceremony we used two tall gold stands with a large tropical arrangement sat on the top filled with a variety of tropical leaves in different shapes and sizes. I love the array and variety you can get with this tropical look and it really allows you to be so creative. Again I added in orchids to these arrangements, beautiful drooping white phalaenopsis orchids adding that luxurious, tropical feel to the ceremony.
After the ceremony the beautiful mill room gets transformed with the tables for the wedding breakfast. Half of the tables were filled with the tall gold stand arrangements, offering such impact and drama to the room. The way those giant palm and monstera leaves come out of the stand is amazing! I loved making these! The other half of the tables were filled with low glass vases with a tropical foliage and orchid hand tied. The mix of tall and low tables is a really elegant way to dress a wedding breakfast room. This spreads the colour and interest throughout the whole room and space.
The cake was made by a family friend, who did an excellent job! A simple white cake, we adorned this with a few simple tropical smaller leaves to tie through the whole wedding theme. Sometimes simple is effective and I feel the tropical selection of leaves definitely stands out.
An absolute pleasure working with Jess and James on their wedding flowers at The Frogmill. I have worked with Jess on many weddings as she is a make up artist, so it is even more special when a fellow wedding supplier puts their faith in you for their big day!
