Kelly and Adam's Wedding
On a sunny, blustery July afternoon, Kelly and Adam tied the knot in romantic Bartholomew Barn in deepest Sussex.
When we first met for a consultation, Kelly told me that she likes lots of colours and flowers and was thus undecided what to go for in her bouquet. She knew she wanted a beautiful cascading one, and we soon settled on a medley of colours and flowers to ensure she did not have to settle on just one or two varieties!
Her statement bouquet featured Rosa 'Armando', frilly double Lisianthus 'Falda Salmon', double white Lisianthus 'Rosita' as well as deep purple Lisianthus 'Piccolo Violet'. To go with these gorgeous blooms, we added yellow Alstroemeria, lilac Aster (September flower) as well as lacy Gypsophila. To soften the edges, we used Asparagus setaceus as well as Danae racemosa.
Her six bridesmaids had the same flowers in their loose hand ties, while her flower girl had a posy style bouquet.
The buttonholes featured Gypsophila with soft ruscus as well as a sprig of Limonium and the two mums had pretty pink corsages which included Rosa 'Lydia'.
The table centres had a medley of jam jars featuring aforementioned flowers and the wow factor in this pretty barn was provided by the huge floral hoop which hung from the rafters; created with the excellent help of my lovely assistant, Sue Clancy. The final touch were pew ends which featured lacy Gypsophila and which were tied with pink ribbon.
As always, a Floranina heart featured in the proceedings too; this time gracing a surprise arch which Adam had made for his new wife! A picture of this will follow in due course...
This wedding proved quite a challenge flower wise as temperatures nudged plus 35 degrees in the shade for two days of preparations however, happily, everything looked totally magical on the big day.
Here is wishing lovely Kelly and Adam all the very, very best in their future life as husband and wife...
