Kirsty’s wedding was a gorgeous rustic affair at The Barn at Elsham Hall. I was asked to provide the bridal party flowers and thank you bouquets.
The colours were to be quite autumnal despite getting married in June (2014).
For Kirsty’s hand tied posy bouquet I included brown roses, deep orange roses.brown germini, Skimmia berries and foliage and gyp along with corn, various grasses and natural ting ting.
As Kirsty had had her wedding dress made we used off cuts of the material to wrap around the bouquet stems.
The two bridesmaids had a similar style bouquet but with brown and cream flowers, so the orange roses were swapped for cream ones.
The stems were bound in twine to tie in with the rustic feel.
The Flower girl carried a gold star wand decorated with a brown rose, grasses and berries with twine bow and trails.
The groomsmen wore gorgeous buttonholes (above) of a single orange rose, skimmia berries and grasses. The stems were bound to match the bridesmaids bouquets with twine.
The ladies each had a corsage to attach to their hand bags of germini, skimmia berries, gyp and grasses and corn.
The 5 thank you’s were all hand tie arrangements in bubbles of water for freshness. These were a mix of the wedding flowers with a few extras and were presented in orange boxes with brown bows.
Kirsty had her bouquet preserved after her wedding and was kind enough to send me a photo. This was sent away to Precious Petals. For more information click on the link.
