Great Fosters wedding flowers – English Summer Tea Party
For me, these Great Fosters wedding flowers embodied the essence of the quintessential English summer on a great-weather day. Combining lovely soft meadow colours of ivory, lilac, pale pinks and purple, with a classic mix of country garden flowers, it was a perfect fit for the tea-party theme that Heather and Jon had chosen.
The bridal bouquet consisted of lots of ivory, blush and pale dusky pink roses, with accents of deep purple lisianthus and freesias. Heather and her flower girls wore pretty circlets and the bridesmaid wore a beautiful wrist corsage.
The wedding ceremony was held outside in the beautiful garden pavilion and the weather was really amazing! Bright sunshine all day, you really couldn’t ask for a better day… We dressed the garden pavilion with hanging tea cups and saucers, and lanterns for tea lights, and dotted posies of flowers in small tea pots and tea cups all along the ceremony table. Two amazing ceremony urn displays packed with beautiful country garden blooms – delphiniums, hydrangeas, roses, astrantia, lisianthus as so on, provided the backdrop to Heather & Jon as they took their vows. The wedding aisle chairs were dressed with pretty posies of flowers with an informal just picked look, kept fresh in little vintage hanging pots, to be later be brought inside and reused.
We continued the tea party theme inside the Tithe Barn for the wedding breakfast. The tables were laid out in a summer party banquet style which looked amazing in the barn, and suited the informal style of the wedding much better. The tables were dressed with our tall silver candelabras with opulent wilder style flowers displays at the top, to draw the eye up as you enter the room, and do justice to the very high ceiling. Blending these together, low down on the tables, we used an interesting array of bouquets and posies and clusters of flowers in various sized tea pots and tea cups, and jars and bottles, to create that just picked laid back look.
For the top table, we used again a line up of informal low centrepieces in a tea set, and the 2 large urn centrepieces from the outdoor ceremony were brought back inside to frame the top table during speeches. For the minstrel gallery, we created a foliage swag decorated with hanging tea cups and rose blooms.
