Vibrant Colours, Uplifting Summer Meadow Wedding

1 Sep 2014

Brightly coloured meadow flowers were used to create an uplifting theme for Jennifer and Ian’s summer wedding.

The ceremony was held in Swinton Park’s elegant library before the wedding party moved on to the nearby farmhouse at Bivouac to continue their celebrations.

Shades of yellow, red, orange, pink, violet and blue were used for a bold effect with plenty of green foliage.

Delicate spray roses, gypsophila, small headed seasonal varieties, a mix of seasonal foliage, grasses and fragrant herbs created a soft, meadow feel and the flowers were loosely arranged for a natural hand-picked look

The bride carried a bouquet of brightly coloured flowers gathered loosely and incorporating pretty pastel-coloured spray rose buds and delicate white gypsophila.

The bridesmaids carried informal hand-tied posies of mixed flowers and foliage.

They wore mini clusters of brightly coloured mixed flower heads in their hair.

A colourful combination of summer meadow flowers was used for the female buttonholes. Small-headed flowers were combined with sprigs of rosemary and green foliage for the male buttonholes.

The registrar’s table at Swinton Park featured a lovely long & low design using the same bright colours as the bridal flowers, with trails of ivy and fern tumbling down. A collection of jam jars and bottles, decorated by the bride, were scattered down the length of each trestle table for the reception at the Bivouac. We filled these with the same colourful flower mix creating a fun and informal feel.
