The Epitome of Elegance

January 23, 2018

In September last year we had the pleasure of creating the florals for Rosie and James’s beautiful wedding. The ceremony was held at Ripley Church with the reception in a Wills marquee in the grounds of the family home. If you are looking for inspiration for a fresh and elegant, white and green scheme then this wedding is the one for you. There really is something so crisp and beautifully understated about a natural green and white colour palette. The designs expressed a nod to tradition but with the right mix of blooms they also felt incredibly modern and sophisticated.

Belle and Beau photography captured the essence of their elegant day wonderfully with their fine art styled photography.  Cat Johnson did incredible work on the make up and Emily Hawks created utterly gorgeous soft and romantic hair on the day.

The flowers we used were a wonderful mix of Roses, Spray Roses and Garden roses with Hydrangea, Snow ball Viburnum, Stocks, Delphinium, Veronica, Astilbe, Scabious, Hypericum, Dahlia, Freesia, Hellebores and Lisianthus. Many were Yorkshire grown only a matter of miles away.

We think the real triumph in this scheme was the use of fresh green foliage grown locally. The stronger green tone of Hornbeam and Silver Birch really popped against the clean pure white offset by the blooms.

The Bridesmaid’s beautiful dove grey dresses complimented the pure white Hydrangea bouquets to perfection. The cool tone against the fresh greenery really worked here.

The statement in the marquee was the stunning hanging floral chandelier. This was a foliage heavy design with flower heads placed within for a garden feel. The trailing Amaranthus softened the design to give a really romantic feel. This chandelier combined a mass of of British grown flowers and foliage including some stunning Dahlias.
