Well this is what they are known as! Finally I am able to share with you some beautiful photos by the fabulous Anna Hardy from a gorgeous wedding we did last September – I may run out of superlatives at this rate!! I met the lovely Katie through another bride from a few years before and knew from Day One that this wedding was going to be a winner
Katie had very strong ideas about what she wanted but we did manage to include everything from the romantic personal flowers that would be teamed with her STUNNING Vera Wang, yes, Vera Wang dress to the meadowy, light and oh-so-pretty mix of bright summery flowers in the permanent marquee set up at Westwood Park in Essex
At our flower market visit just before the wedding date, Katie fell in love with just about every flower we looked and I almost had to tear her away from some!
But we finally decided on a palette of palest pink and ivory for the church flowers and bouquets using large overblown Hydrangea and pink blushed Snowberries for the bridesmaids with the addition of Sweet Avalanche Roses for Katie herself
The church was so pretty it hardly needed any flowers at all but we added just a touch of extra-pretty with a light Gyp garland and some white Hydrangea and Roses around the entrance arch and delicate Gyp pew ends tied with ribbons
We were blessed with an amazing sunny day which brought to life the bright mix of flowers on the tables in the marquee – Sunflowers (Katie’s favourite), Roseberry Roses, Blue Bee Delphinium, Astrantia, pale pink Freesia, Sedum, Alchemilla Mollis and a variety of fragrant herbs
Finally a mix of low and tall displays broke up the view across the tables, although the tall vases gave us a little challenge with the wind coming through the very necessary open side of the marquee!
