Wedding inspiration at Elmore Court

I am so excited to share these gorgeous photos from a recent collaboration with the very talented Jen Marino Photography and C D Hair at Elmore Court.

Jen’s brief for the shoot was ‘pretty, pink, bright and delicate’. For the bouquet, I wanted to include lots of textured white lilac with soft pink sweet avalanche roses. The delicate hair flowers were made with a new variety of pale pink lisinathus which has a soft, frilly texture. I love the results!

Many thanks to our gorgeous model, Megan, who looked so effortlessly stunning!

Floral details

I am often asked to make bespoke floral arrangements to adorn unusual spaces or ledges in churches or venues. These usually require extra planning and preparation particularly when there is no obvious ledge for the flowers to rest on or to be attached to. When planning for these types of arrangements a tape measure and camera are invaluable! I often have to think up several possible ways to construct the arrangements and get them attached securely.

Last August I was lucky enough to supply flowers to a beautiful wedding at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons. The wedding flowers were full of large garden roses and hydrangea. Frances, the bride, was keen to include lots of floral accents and details in her wedding including a floral frame for the seating plan and garlands to wrap around the entrance pillars.

Ashmolean Museum wedding flowers

Amber and Edmund got married at Merton College chapel in May last year. The chapel was decorated with tall pedestal arrangements filled with scented stocks, peonies, sweet peas and garden roses. A large cherry blossom tree, which stood outside the chapel, gave inspiration for the colour palette of soft pinks and whites.

Following the ceremony, the reception was held at the Ashmolean Museum. The tables were decorated with tall glass vases filled with arrangements of seasonal scented flowers.

Bodleian library wedding flowers

I am excited to post these beautiful detail shots from a stunning military wedding at the Bodleian Library back in August. The deep red roses and hypericum berries in Lynn’s bouquet complemented the military red uniforms. Lynn’s bridesmaids carried soft ivory bouquets of avalanche roses, freesia and lisinathus.

Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons wedding flowers

Here are some lovely photos from Ceri and Frances’ glamorous Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons wedding in August. The wedding was full of beautiful floral accents and details which made the La Belle Epoque look extra special.

The arrangements were packed full of hydrangea and roses teamed with soft eucalyptus. Spray roses were mixed with larger headed avalanche roses and garden varieties such as white O’Hara. These added a delicate texture and fabulous scent.
