Somerset Wedding Flowers – Kate and Pete get wed in Wells
Here are Kate and Pete’s wedding flowers, who got married in a church in Wells with a reception in a marquee. The colour scheme for this wedding was various tones of purples, lilacs, dusky pinks and ivory, with a lovely natural look focusing on country style flowers. Kate’s bouquet was filled with clematis, lisianthus, hydrangea florets, veronica, wax flower with a selection of roses: Avalanche, Cool Water, Dark Hypnose and Memory Lane. The various shades of purples blended beautifully together and was lifted by the addition of the ivory roses and veronica.
The three bridesmaids carried a similar style of bouquet, however I focused on using more of the dusky pinks within their bouquets to match the colour of their dark lavender/grey dresses. Here I used pale pink hydrangea florets, lilac and pink lisianthus, white veronica with the Memory Lane, Avalanche and Dark Hypnose roses. I love the compact nature of the boquets, yet how they still look natural and each flower can be individually picked out.
I decorated the church in Wells with flowers by tying pew ends onto the aisles. I used stocks to provide a heavenly scent within the church, with lisianthus, roses and eucalytpus. The tied bunches work great for pew ends, lining the aisle in a more natural, less conventional kind of way. I also filled two large vintage looking urns with a natural, rustic arrangement of hydrangeas, larkspur, stocks, lisianthus, roses which were placed on pillars to greet the guests at the entrance to the church, and also at the front of the Altar. I always say when it comes to decorating the church to focus on a few key areas that you want to decorate and go for statement peices to create impact, the urns can then be transported to the venue afterwards.
Kate and Pete held their wedding reception at Stoberry House, a fantastic venue with stunning gardens allowing you to have a marquee within the gardens, the views were stunning and I could see right over to Glastonbury Tor, and look down onto Wells Cathedral. I decorated the tables with jam jars full of seasonal flowers in whites, purples, lilacs and dusky pinks. Very fitting decoration for a country style wedding, the tables were names after old apple varieties! Wishing Kate and Pete lots of happiness in their new married life together xx
