Soft Pink Summer Wedding Flowers at Allerton Castle

6 Mar 2016

The abundance of seasonal blooms in early summer offers so much scope for sumptuous bridal flowers.

We really made the most of them in these luxurious designs, created for Laura and Andrew’s wedding at the very elegant Allerton Castle.


This beautiful classic theme used large headed roses, varieties ‘Sweet Avalanche’, ‘Amnesia’ and ‘Quicksand’ combined with lush peonies, spray roses and hydrangea.

Gladioli, freesia, stocks and achillea added scent and texture to the arrangements and were complemented by soft green and silvery grey foliage.

The colour palette was composed of elegant tones of ivory, cream, dusky pink, taupe and very pale blush pink.

These pretty, romantic shades contrasted well against the rich purple of the bridesmaids’ dresses.

Allerton Castle is a stunning venue and we love decorating the fabulous staircase.


For Laura’s big day we dressed it with a mixed foliage garland, offset by delicate placements of roses and peonies, which created a beautiful focal point as the bride made her grand entrance. The effect was completed with a selection of hurricane candle vases lining the stairs.

Two statement pieces were created using large white urns and these were placed at the top of the wedding aisle to frame Laura and Andrew during their I Do’s.

Hydrangea, roses, peonies and gladioli, in various shades of pink added colour and softness to the great hall.

For the wedding breakfast, the ballroom was decorated with a mixture of tall and low designs on the guest tables.

Softly rounded balls of flowers and foliage were placed onto tall glass vases and completed with hanging globe nightlights for a romantic touch.

Hurricane candle vases surrounded by a ring of flowers and foliage complemented the tall designs perfectly.

The scene was set for a fabulous celebration.
