Ivory and nude wedding florals

White, ivory and green is a sophisticated colour palette that never goes out of fashion ​and the addition of touches of nude and soft blue added a stylish twist to the flowers for Eilis and Callum's September wedding. 

The ceremony was held at St Leonard's Church in Malton and was followed by a reception at The Orangery, Settrington, where we always love working. 

This unique venue is a very special place to celebrate a wedding and a real pleasure to dress with flowers. 

The Orangery's tranquil grounds and stunning architectural features, which include the Rose Colonnade and Tempietto​, offer ample photo opportunities and our loose, natural arrangements complemented the surroundings perfectly. 

We used a beautiful selection of ivory and cream roses and dahlia with vibernum pom pom and delicate foliage adding a hint of green throughout. 

Eryngium thistles,​ hypericum berries, achillea and delphinium added texture and structure, 

the delphinium picking out the  jewel toned teal blue dresses​ of the eight bridesmaids. 

Eilis was keen to have a real tree inside the church during their ceremony for a natural touch. 

This was decorated with hanging glass candle globes and we moved it to the Orangery after their ceremony to decorate the entrance.  ​

The Orangery is a very light and airy room and we created a mix of tall and low table centrepieces, which helped to fill the space. 

Loose balls of flowers and foliage on tall vases were mixed with co-ordinating low designs using small flowers vases interspersed with candles 

and smaller flower vases for a romantic effect. ​
