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.

The pew ends were also treated with bunch designs of stocks, sweet peas, roses, eustoma and thalaspi foliage and tied with an ivory bow.

Emma and her mum met me at a wedding fayre I had attended at Belton House and booked a consultation with me.

Emma had quite clear ideas on what she wanted but was open to ideas from my portfolio and which flowers would work best with her colour scheme.

She wanted a shower bouquet and loved a design I had previously made of roses, sweet peas and eustoma.  Was this possible in her plum, pink and ivory colour scheme, yes!!

These roses are called Blueberry and are a stunning colour, teamed with pale pink sweet peas and the ivory eustoma and it really shows the colour up. Bear grass adds to the volume and length of the design without adding to the weight.

Emma’s three bridesmaids carried a hand tie design in the same flowers and colours as the bridal bouquet with added thalaspi foliage.

The ladies of the bridal party were each given a small corsage to wear on their lapels.
