Hannah and Karl's Wedding

This summer we created wedding flowers for Hannah and Karl who wed at Swallow Oast in Ticehurst. Swallows Oast is a beautiful venue we had not dressed before so it was doubly exciting for us!

Hannah came to us having already chosen her flowers with another florist, but she had lost confidence in their ability to carry out her vision and to fulfil her floral dreams for her big day. Hannah and her mum were very reassured having spoken to us, allowed us to explain how we create the flower arrangements for the day, deliver everything, set the venue and collect hired items the next day. Upon being reassured she chose to book her wedding flowers with us!

Hannah viewed our extensive portfolio of work which helped to finalise her ideas of what she wanted for her wedding day. The main colour theme was bright cerise pink and white and for the bride we created a classic hand tied bouquet of Avalanche Roses studded with Diamantes and finished with a collar of folded Aspidistra leaves and a cream lace ribbon handle also with diamante detailing.

For Hannah's bridesmaids who wore cerise pink dresses, Hannah chose smaller versions of her bouquet with pearl detailing in the lace ribbon handle.

For Karl we created a single cream Avalanche Rose buttonhole with folded Aspidistra and diamante detailing.

At Swallows Oast, Hannah and Karl chose to wed outside and we decorated the area with Bay trees lit with fairy lights and filled with Roses and dressed with cerise pink bows.

Inside the barn, we adorned the top table with a traditional, country style, long and low arrangement that included Roses, Gerbera, Larkspur and Stocks.
