Calla lily bridal bouquet

Nick and Alice Wedding September 2014

Their Floral Style

A lovely vintage wedding with a soft and romantic feel.  Alice wanted flowers with a natural and informal look.  Together we chose a pale, dusky colour palette including beautiful Amnesia roses – my absolute favourite with their beautiful faded look.  She wanted her bouquet to include some stronger colours which I added with gorgeous Vermeer calla lilies.

vintage table centres

The natural style of the table centres worked so well with the rest of the wedding flowers.  Using mis-match cut glass vases helped create a vintage, informal look 

Floral Tips and Advice

I am a big fan of making the most of your flowers on the day.  All the flowers used in the ceremony were re-used for the reception.  The pedestals were moved  so they could be enjoyed all day.  I provided ribboned jam jars which the pew ends were placed in and used as extra decoration for the wedding breakfast.  The wedding and reception took place at the lovely Leigh Court just outside Bristol.  The vintage style of the flowers for this wedding worked so well in the venue.
