Romantic roses for Frankie and Tom
When I first met Frankie and Tom I just knew we were on the same wave length. Frankie was such a pleasure to work with and each consultation resulted in us having a really good giggle.
So, when the photographs from Frankie and Tom’s beautiful May wedding at the stunning Colshaw Hall in Cheshire landed in my inbox, it was like a present I couldn’t wait to open.
With the very talented Naomi Kenton wielding the camera, the wedding embodied everything Frankie and Tom wanted to achieve. It was ethereal, romantic and dreamy and the flowers played a huge part in creating that effect.
At the first consultation, between giggles, Frankie had said she wanted a predominantly white and green palette with a very soft peach/blush accent. After sneaking a peek at her stunning lace wedding dress from Love Bridal in Cheshire I knew the flowers had to be romantic.
With its delicate, silvery green colour and beautiful scent, eucalyptus was a must and featured in abundance across bouquets, button holes, ceremony designs and table centres.
The bouquets were a joy to create, bursting with garden roses including white O’Hara roses, cream Yves Piaget roses, Snow Ballet spray roses, as well as ranunculus, sweet peas and eucalyptus populous, arranged in a loose, textured, romantic style. I particularly loved the trailing, white silk ribbon tie used to secure the bouquets. It moved so dramatically, creating a dreamy effect that the photographer captured perfectly.
When I delivered the bouquet to Frankie on the morning of her wedding she gave me the biggest hug ever and I knew she was over the moon with the end result. When I see a client react like that it makes all our hard work worthwhile and I think I have the best job in the world!
Frankie and Tom chose to have statement floral pieces interspersed with smaller displays to create an abundant effect. The garland, above the entrance of their ceremony venue, the stables at Colshaw Hall, contained masses of foliage with seasonal white and blush roses and hydrangea. This was a real wow feature and made a stunning impact as the bride and groom left the venue as a married couple.
Loose flowers and candles created a soft and ethereal aisle for Frankie to walk down, with a beautiful rose arch perfectly framing the couple as they said their vows.
Day moved effortlessly into night with tall, clear vases holding large table displays packed with foliage and white hydrangea to create volume and colour. The top table had an abundant eucalyptus garland interspersed with candles and textured vases containing single flowers.
The overall effect of Frankie and Tom’s wedding was simply stunning, and we were honoured to work with such a warm and happy couple. Their photographs prove how a simple and clean colour palette can have a really dramatic effect. If you’re planning your flowers and fancy something similar, please get in touch!
