Katharine and Graham's Wedding

When we create floral designs for weddings, we not only make them over the few days before a wedding but we spend a lot of time meeting with our brides, grooms and families to discuss their vision for the day, their likes as well as their dislikes, favourite flowers and the colour scheme for the day. Over consultations, emails and phone calls we plan with the couple their wedding flowers. Then we put all the ideas and thoughts together and work our magic with our knowledge and experience of flowers.

We really enjoyed the whole process of creating Katharine and Graham's wedding flowers from the start all the way through to setting the last flower arrangement in place.

The overarching theme for Katharine and Graham's wedding was to incorporate a country garden feel in their chosen colour scheme, cobalt blue, pale blue, cream and yellow.

Katharine chose a teardrop bouquet in pale shades of cream, pale blue and yellow. We used Avalanche Roses, pale blue Nigella, pale yellow Lisianthus and fragrant cream Freesia with soft, delicate foliages.

For Katharine's bridesmaids, hand tied bouquets were made using yellow Illios Roses, cobalt blue Cornflowers, pale blue Nigella, pale yellow Lisianthus and cream Freesia with delicate foliages interspersed throughout and the bouquets finished with cream satin ribbon handles and pearl detailing. We created larger versions for the adult bridesmaids and smaller versions for the flower girls.

For the flower girls we also created half floral circlets to be worn in their hair that included cream spray Roses, Cornflowers and Nigella.

For Graham we created a single Avalanche Rose buttonhole with pale yellow Lisianthus and pale blue Nigella and foliage to match with Katharine's bouquet.

For the groomsmen, we created buttonholes of single Avalanche Roses with foliage. We also created buttonholes for members of the extended bridal party using ivory Carnations with foliages.

The ceremony took place in St Peter and St Paul's in Tonbridge which has the biggest stained glass window I've ever seen!

We created a long and low arrangement for the altar along with pedestal arrangements and pew ends.

The wedding reception was held in The Royal Suite at The Spa Hotel in Tunbridge Wells. We dressed the tables with a mixture of tall and low arrangements using Martini vases and hurricane lamp arrangements.

The tall Martini vases were lined with pale blue fabric and filled with an arrangement of delicate tall blue Delphiniums, yellow Illios Roses, cream Avalanche Roses, pale yellow Stocks, pale yellow Lisianthus, bold blue Cornflowers and pale blue Nigella with foliages. We sourced pale yellow candles to decorate the table to continue the colour theme.

We transported the altar  arrangement from the church after the ceremony (and saw Katharine who looked beautiful in her dress and the flower girls so adorable with their circlets!) and the pedestal arrangements that flanked the top table. We arranged the pew ends in vases for the guests to take home after the reception.

Katharine and Graham looked so happy after the ceremony and we hope they had a wonderful honeymoon. We wish them all the very best for the future!

  1. Ah! Flowers add so much to a place. Even a single rose can make a lot of difference. It does beautify a place a lot. I was also looking for a florist for decorating an event space Atlanta that I have booked for my sister’s surprise anniversary party. I am glad I saw it.
