Relaxed Country Theme using David Austin Roses
2 Jul 2013
Seasonal summer flowers and lots of mixed green foliage and soft grasses created a charming woodland theme for Victoria and Tom, who were married at Marske Church near Richmond in June.
Peach David Austin ‘Juliette’ roses featured strongly in the floral designs adding elegance to the very natural theme. The roses were particularly spectacular in the bridal bouquets and as buttonholes which Victoria was delighted with when she saw them on the morning of the wedding day.
Scabious seed pods and herbs were used in the arrangements to add further interest and texture.
The lovely little local church looked fabulous when dressed with our tall flower balls which had been specifically designed to suit the compact space. They were such a success that we’ll certainly be creating more of them for future events.
A wider mix of colours was used in the marquee designs for extra impact. The reception was held in a marquee in Victoria’s mum’s superb garden and was built around a tree which was then covered in pretty fairy lights.
The bride wanted this beautiful setting to extend inside so pink, purple and red fuchsia plants, wrapped in hessian with a raffia bow, were placed on the guest tables and around the marquee.
Victoria sourced some fabulous moss covered numbers and other accessories online including table runners, a fabulous wooden cake stand and wooden branch nightlight holders.
A very talented friend created a beautiful etched wood table plan and the bride’s mum made lovely mini topiary balls in pots which were used both as place names and favours.
It was lovely to work with Victoria who had such a clear vision for how everything should look. The end result was fantastic and so full of personality.
