I was delighted to be chosen as the florist for Victoria and Ben’s mid-summer wedding at our local church in Hampton in Arden followed by a reception at the elegant Hampton Manor
Victoria’s background in interior design meant she had clear views about the look for her wedding and we helped her create a wonderful day filled with an abundance of natural looking flowers in creams, soft blush and peach. She came well prepared to our consultation with plenty of images and her pretty Save The Date as inspiration.
The hand tied bouquets were a soft mixture of peach, cream and blush with highlights of grey eucalyptus.
The bouquets were presented in elegant glass vases as a gift for the bridesmaids. I just love the trailing ribbons of the bouquets.
Hampton in Arden Church is a village church with a gate leading back into the grounds of Hampton Manor. The lichgate is the perfect place for photographs and is perfectly set off with an asymetrical garland of flowers.
Pew ends of blousy hydrangeas and elegant silver lanterns framed the aisle. Duncan always has his congregation in his hands and is such a wonderful vicar, our couples tell us he holds his get togethers with them in the local pub.
The elegant setting of Elizabeth’s Court at Hampton Manor was beautifully set out with a mix of high and low centrepieces. The tall silver candelabra had posy vases, candelsticks and large votives in mercury silver set out around the base to create a timesless look to the tables. The silver footed bowls also had a lush arrangement with posy vases filled with scented roses, elegant candlesticks and votives to surround.
Victoria had created some lovely personal touches with shots as the favours, fun gifts for the children and so much attention to detail.
The flowers really are the icing on the cake and we were thrilled to decorate this wedding cake with an abundant mix of roses and hydrangea.
