Emma and Paul live in Edinburgh and decided to come back to Emma's childhood home to get married, I was delighted to be asked to supply their flowers, and it was important from the off set to bring both the Scottish and the English theme together for the wedding.
They married at Burleydam Church a beautiful old fashioned church set in the Shropshire country side. I was very excited to be arranging the archway with beautiful blooms, stunning blue Hydrangea, Delphiniums, Roses and Thistles filled the space with delicate hanging ribbons, a lovely feature for the bride and groom to have pictures under.
Emma's bouquet was made in a handtied style including cream Roses, Thistle, Gypsophila and Forget me Nots- a flower close to the couples heart. Emma looked beautiful in a Ivory beaded gown on the day, and the bridesmaids wore a bright blue, they had a smaller version of the bridal bouquet with the addition of blue corn flowers.
Inside the church Gypsophila hearts hung on the pews, long and low arrangements filled the large windows and a pedestal stood at the front as a feature. We used sweet smelling English grown David Austin Roses and Scottish blue Thistle, bringing the theme together nicely, vivid blues, reds and creams were used.
The windows were then moved onto the top table at the reception, a good idea for saving money and making the most of the flowers you've chosen.
The reception took place at Emma's childhood home in a stunning marquee, the marquee looked beautiful set on the front lawn at the family farm. The couple had been collecting Edinburgh gin bottles for me to fill for the tables, a quirky idea that looked fabulous on the tartan table covers, country/casual arrangements were placed in the bottles and were very effective.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
