We were delighted to create the wedding flowers for Emily and Greg’s wedding back in June at one of our favourite venues, Caswell House.
When we met Emily and Greg at their wedding flower consultation we could not wait to get started on designing their wedding flowers. The brief was English Garden Elegance with little rustic touches. Caswell House provides the perfect back drop for this style. Emily and Greg really wanted to get married outside so it was important to compliment the already lovely gardens at the venue with the wedding flowers. We do lots of weddings at Caswell so we were able to assist Emily in deciding where flowers work best.
We produced an initial mood board for the couple to give them a feel for what we were proposing for designs and also flower types.
We always get excited when we see the flowers for a wedding arrive in the work room, and we can start to see how its going to come together to fulfill the brief. After lots of careful conditioning and care we are ready to start work on producing the designs.
The weather behaved on the day and we were able to set up for an outdoor ceremony. We always have a wet weather plan for any English wedding and we often have to change to an indoor ceremony at the last minute which is why everything is always movable!
The team love attention to detail and put together little touches like these petal confetti cones and presentation bags for the wedding bouquets .
My favourite moment at any wedding is presenting the bride with her bouquet and sharing the excitement. Emily loved her bouquet full of beautiful roses and scented sweet peas, she could not stop smelling it. It is so lovely to use scented flowers and foliage so that every time you smell these scents in the future it transports you back to your wedding day!
For Emily’s wedding we discussed a mixture of tall and low arrangements on her tables, which are a great idea in a barn setting with tall ceilings, as it takes your eyes up into the room. We chose these very elegant cut glass candle sticks with stunning domes of flowers above eye level for the tall pieces. For the low ones, in a nod to the rustic setting, very pretty pots made from birch bark were filled with mixtures of the wedding flowers.
