We were delighted when Swinton Park’s wedding co-ordinator Rebecca chose Twisted Willow as the florist for her own wedding day.

We already knew Rebecca well and she was a real pleasure to work with as we developed a soft and fresh country style theme using seasonal flowers in a classic summer colour palette of blue, white and ivory.

Cottage garden favourites including sweet peas, delphiniums, peonies, roses and larkspur were styled informally for a hand-picked effect.

Trailing soft green amaranthus, silvery grey eucalyptus and dark green foliage added interest and depth.

The bride’s bouquet was a tumbling shower of seasonal garden flowers and foliage arranged to give a natural look with ivy trails and fern adding softness.

The bridesmaids carried softly rounded hand-tied bouquets dressed with pale silver ribbon to match the colour of their dresses.

The Hospitium is a beautiful building and we made the most of its pillar features, decorating them with spirals of seasonal foliage.

The top of each pillar was decorated with a ring of lush foliage and flowers, creating a fabulous space for the wedding celebrations.

A low rounded arrangement in a clear glass bowl was used to decorate the registrar’s table and replicated for the table centres for the guests’ tables at the reception.

A tall arrangement on a stone plinth was placed behind the registrar’s table and later moved to decorate the main staircase.

Blue thistle heads were used for the male buttonholes.

Tall elegant martini vases, lined with dark green aspidistra leaves, were filled with seasonal flowers in blues and white to decorate the reception area for the wedding breakfast.

After the wedding Rebecca moved away to be with Rob on his latest posting and we wish them both well as they settle into married military life.
