Rock My Wedding feature

It’s always great seeing the delight on your brides face when you deliver her flowers and that moment that you know what you have created is exactly what the couple wanted is priceless.  We never get to see the whole event, so it’s fantastic to see your work and a very happy bride featured in one of the top wedding blogs Rock My Wedding and to see how the flowers have played a big part of the day.

Rock My Wedding featured one of our favourite venues Gossel Ridding a fabulous country house in the lake district and a wedding we worked on in the summer.

The feature shows the lovely couple Chloe and Micheal in their real weddings section and is full of wonderful photos from the very talented Melissa Beattie.

Chloe and Micheal wanted their flowers to match the pale blue bridesmaids dresses and to give a soft vintage pastel feel.  We used Old English Roses, hydrangea, lisianthus, spray roses and phlox to create  small headed textured look.

Chloe wanted her bouquet to be asymmetrical with soft trails of ribbon from the stems and used a small amount of eucalyptus to follow the vintage theme through.

Absolutely delighted that they had what looks like such a fantastic day and we wish them loads of brilliant things for the future.

Gold wedding centrepieces

We are getting lots of fantastic feedback about the hints of gold that we are using for some of our wedding centrepieces, we’re getting asked for lots of different styles, so here are a few ideas on how to add a hint of gold to inject some lift, colour and glamour into your wedding.

We love this soft gold wooden box filled with pastel flowers and a hint of deep burgundy ranunculus.  Gold doesn’t have to be used just with vases and the hint of deep colour really adds to the luxurious feel of this arrangement.

Gold can also harmonise with lots of colour, it adds an extra tone and extra glamour to a more rustic setting, showing just how versatile it is to use across lots of styles and different colour palettes.

Of course gold adds romance to pastel shades, it lifts the pastels, adding a lovely vintage glamour look to beautiful soft flowers.  These country garden styles work so well, the soft romantic old english roses bringing the romance to the fore.

Gold can also create light and attention to different parts of the room, it bounces light around so added to the area above the reception table creates a beautiful focal  point, taking the eye upwards but links into the table with the small gold vases, so the flowers are highlighted too.

Softer mercury vases can also be used to give a paired down nod to the gold we love so much.  Gold mercury mixes so well with other metallic colours as well and doesn’t have to be used on it’s own and is great for those Gatsby styled weddings.

Gold really can be used in a variety of ways, giving a different look to many styles, so if vintage glam isn’t your thing, don’t think you can’t use gold it works in loads of ways just adding a lift to normal glassware.
