Matt and Sam Wedding June 2014

 

Their Style

A gorgeous Somerset countryside wedding on a farm  in the Mendips.  With this couple wanting a natural, informal style for their flowers this wedding was my cup of tea!  They chose the beautiful colour scheme of blues and yellows with a dash of pink.  Sam was very relaxed about what flowers I used, just wanting seasonal, early summer flowers that would fit in with the rustic, informal feel of their day.

Sam’s lovely bouquet of Delphinium, Cornflower, Nigella, Phlox, flowering Oregano, Flowering Mint, Achillea and Spray Roses.  I just love this colour combination.

Delightful rustic Boutonniere style buttonholes of Achillea, Delphinium buds, Nigella buds, Cornflower, oregano and spray roses

A flower crown for Sam’s Flower-girl.  I think this is so gorgeous in this colour combination.

Lovely table centres in metal jugs.  I kept these very loose to help create a more rustic, informal look. These were placed on long tables for the wedding breakfast.

Tips and advice

I wanted the designs to look as if I had taken a walk through the Somerset countryside grabbing handfuls of flowers although I can promise you I put a lot more effort into them than that! 

If you want a natural, rustic look for your wedding ask for seasonal flowers.  Flowering herbs, buds and seed-heads also really helped created this informal, countryside look.   This colour combination worked so well.   I love bright colours for a wedding!  It really helps create a fun and relaxed atmosphere on the day.
