An English Country Garden

January 12, 2017

As the cold winds blow here in Harrogate, we are reminiscing of summers gone by.

A culmination of our favourite things, a Michelin starred inn and PapaKata TeePees, we were super excited when Lucy and Rhodri asked us to design the florals for their wedding.

Taking place at the fantastic Star Inn, Harome, North Yorkshire, the lovely couples wedding took reference from the idyllic countryside surroundings, and their love of fine food and wine.

We wanted the couple’s florals to reflect this, incorporating lots of british grown blooms and fragrant herbs in a pretty palette of pastel hues.

Lucy’s bouquet was super pretty and fresh, incorporating an abundance of British grown, country garden florals. Fluffy Peonies were framed with Scabious, Astrantia and delicate blue Nigella, while Astilbe and pink Veronica added height and texture. We used Rosemary to add fragrance and keep with the British grown theme

The beautiful bride wore a simple trio of Delphinium, Nigella and Rose heads in her hair, while Rhodri’s button was a lush cluster of ivory Spray Roses, Atrantia and Astilbe with fresh green foliage.

The country garden theme continued into the church, with wooden apples crates flanking the church entrance, these were packed full of a variety of blooms and herbs, including Hydrangeas, blue and white Delphiniums, Stocks and pastel Campanulas, while Mint and and rosemary, provided foliage and fragrance.

Pew ends we’re lined hand tied posies finished with twine.

The reception was held in a PapaKata Teepee, in the grounds of the Star Inn, whose incredible Chef provided the most amazing menu for this foodie couple.

Potted plants and wooden troughs packed with our pastel births grown florals  lined hessian covered tables, in keeping with countryside theme.

Thank you, Lucy and Rhodri, we loved designing these florals for your countryside summer wedding!
