Laura’s wedding ceremony was held at St Giles Church (The Church that moved) Lincoln.

The pews were dressed with purple/aubergine organza bows with 2 ivory gerberas in the centre, one with an added diamante broach. These were positioned on opposite pews but on alternative rows.

The wedding breakfast was held at Hemswell Court where the tables were dressed with a mixture of high and low designs.

The colours from the bouquets were carried through along with the flowers. The tall designs were martini vases which had a lilac delphinium, red calla lily, purple/lilac roses, carnations and chrysants and white hydrangeas with mixed foliage. These were made in a container which sits in the vase (which I hire) so the display may be given away to guests after the event. The ‘bowl’ part of the vase was filled with purple sisal. The low designs were in glass cubes and included white and purple dendrobium orchids, lilac roses and alstroemeria, and stallion chrysants with mixed foliage.

Emily contacted me to talk about the 5o’s inspired wedding she was planning. She wanted the flowers to tie in with the three different coloured dresses the bridesmaids were wearing. The brides bouquet was to be a mix of coloured flowers while the bridesmaids were to be neutral.

I came up with coral peonies, raspberry roses and blue/purple hydrangea with lavender with sprigs of asparagus fern. The stems were wrapped in pale blue ribbon with white polka dots to match the underskirt of the brides dress.

The three bridesmaids each carried a simple bouquet of gyp with the stems bound in the pale blue and white spotted ribbon.

The flower girl wore a small wrist corsage of hydrangea florets and gyp attached to the same ribbon for tying on her wrist.

The groom wore a raspberry rose buttonhole with asparagus fern.

The mum’s wore a lapel corsage of flowers from the bridal bouquet. (The green outer guard petals on the peony were removed on delivery. These stop the flowers blooming as quickly)

The ceremony was held at St Paul The Apostle Church at Ashby, Scunthorpe. The pew ends here were treated to bunches of gyp and lavender tied with a bow of the bridal ribbon on opposite and alternate pews.

Emma was married at St John’s Church, Washingborough.

We continued her colour theme of Plum, pink and ivory into the designs and added more scented flowers (which I like to do for churches)

The Blueberry roses are a fabulous colour and these match well with the carnations and peonies.

Emma requested two traditional pedestals on the church steps where the couple would say their vows, These include peonies, roses, eustoma, alstroemeria and chrysants.
