A late Spring day was set for the wedding of Liz & George in a pretty village near Flore, Northamptonshire. After a beautiful classic church ceremony, guests headed to a may-pole tent in a rustic arable field with views across the countryside and surrounding farms.
When we discussed flowers, Liz explained that the main element for her was the colour palette of her blooms rather than the flower varieties themselves. She wanted spring-like vibrancy and freshness with pinks, lemons, blues and oranges complemented with lime and lichen tones of green. Her other priority was to ensure the flowers were informal and relaxed to tie in with the overall laid back vibe of the whole day.
We loved the responsibility of choosing which flowers we used - deciding on ranunculus, peonies, billy bobs, stocks, sweet peas and marguerite daisies. Delivering her satin-tied bouquet to her mother's cottage was a lovely experience. We were met by her excitable Labrador and a hum of anticipation and happiness. Liz was completely at ease and looked stunning in her wedding gown with the intricate lace back and cut rivalling Pippa Middleton.
Completing their special day, for the church ceremony and traditional canvas tent reception, Liz and George wanted to keep the floral elements bright but simple and chose zinc buckets and old-fashioned milk bottles to hold posies of wild flowers including nigella, cornflowers, sweetpeas and dusky pink menta roses.
