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 groomsmen each wore a small gyp boutonniere with a small bow of the bridal ribbon.
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.
Emily’s mum very kindly sent me this photo of the happy couple.
