A gorgeous summer mix of flowers for a May wedding

Laura decided on a gorgeous summer mix of flowers for her May wedding. I was given a brief on colours and certain flowers that must be included and the rest a mix left to me. We also decided on some scented flowers as it was a traditional church wedding and these would be teamed together with flowers given to the local church flower ladies to decorate with.

The bouquet was a hand tie that had a waterfall trailing effect when carried. It consisted of pale pink garden roses, astilbe, eustoma and peonies, lilac stocks, veronica and eustoma, ivory stocks and sweet peas, and lavender with thalaspi, fern and fountain grass foliage. All tied together with ivvory organza ribbon.
