Diane’s wedding ceremony took place at St Nicholas Church at Gunby.

St Nicholas Church Gunby

As it is a small church we decided that decorating the pews was sufficient. We kept the colour and flower theme with large burgundy organza bows with a double gerbera flower centre in pink and orange. These were hung an alternative pews along the aisle.

The wedding breakfast was held in The Old Barn (Now The Wyndham Garden Hotel) at Marston near Grantham.

As there were 6 guest tables Diane had opted for two tables of each colour which we kept to for the flower displays. These were 10″ fish bowls with 3 gerberas floating in and bear grass swirls, this was all sat on a round mirror.

The top table was to be decorated with all the bridal posies and I provided the vases for these to be placed into.

The front of the table was also treated to a runner of gerbera petals in all 3 colours.

Diane asked for gerberas for her wedding flowers, which are probably the second most popular flower I use after roses.

This was to be a lovely bright mix in Orange, cerise pink and burgundy blooms.

Diane’s bouquet was a hand tie posy of orange and cerise pink gerberas with burgundy spray roses. A subtle collar of salal foliage gave some support to the gerberas and the sems were bound with burgundy ribbon and held with pink pins.

Vicky initially met me at The Bailgate wedding faye where it was lovely to chat to her about her upcoming wedding being held in The Judge’s Lodgings where I had my stand.

Vicky’s colour scheme was ivory and light blue and she wanted to incorporate these colours in to her flowers at the end of June (2014)

She liked Gerberas and we teamed these up with lovely light blue Nigella and gyp. As the Nigella has quite a bit of foliage nothing else was added to the bouquets except diamante.

A handful of diamante were added to the centre of each gerbera .
