Peachy coral country garden wedding

A Whole Lot of Love and flowers!

This stunning coral wedding at Great Fosters, was thanks to Elena & Martyn.  When we first to talk about their dreams for their wedding flowers, I got a first inkling of just how much the flowers meant to them and how important it was to get this totally perfect! Even more so than normal!  With Martyn being away a lot with his heavy metal band, Elena carried most of the wedding prep work solo, but it was lovely to see how when Martyn was here he was so supportive of all things wedding related. An amazing amount of research, planning and arranging every small detail was done, and redone until it was just perfect.  And boy, did it pay off!…

The theme and caption for this coral wedding at Great Fosters, was ‘A Whole Lot of Love’ and it was palpable in every single detail, not to mention the very much in love look that the lovely couple wore all day. Even the badly behaved English weather didn’t take the edge of it. If anything, it made it even more amazing as it brought everyone together even more.  The flower palette for this coral wedding at Great Fosters involved very romantic bloomy scented flowers in a beautiful blend of ivory, pale cream, pale peach and coral, with showstopping flowers such as David Austin Juliet roses, huge Klooney ranunculus and amazing Coral charm paeonies taking centrestage beside lavender, honey scented wax flowers, wild fennel and many more lovely blooms.

I don’t think it is easy to pick a favourite arrangement from this charming coral wedding at Great Fosters, I simply loved them all! For Elena and her bridesmaids we made up scented bouquets and for the younger flower girl Elena opted for a pretty circlet of spray roses and scented wax flowers.  The men wore rose buttonholes with wax flowers also.

We welcomed guests with a lovely display on the foyer table, besides the ‘A Whole Lot Of Love’ welcome sign.  The chests in the Painted Hall, where Elena displayed her beautiful array of vintage portraits, guests postcards and rock related collection were dressed with clusters of textural flowers in silver vintage pots.

Moving on to the ceremony room, this was dressed beautifully with candelabra centrepieces (which later were moved on to the guest tables), romantic aisle petal scatter and storm vases, and very cute chair back posies on the bride and groom’s chairs.  The ceremony table was styled with yet more pretty candlelight with flower rings around them.
