Peaches & Cream Gypsophila wedding flowers at Great Fosters in Surrey
Yesterday we arranged Nicola and Ed’s dreamy, vintage gypsophila wedding flowers at Great Fosters in Surrey and I couldn’t be more pleased with the result! Nicola and Ed had their heart set on an outdoor wedding in the lovely grounds, however, with weather so unsettled, we waited until noon and decided that it was just a bit too risky. Luckily all the wedding flowers were prepared with both Plan A (outside ceremony) and Plan B (Orangery room ceremony) in mind, so it all turned out perfect in the end.
Nicola’s dream was to incorporate dreamy gypsophila wedding flowers throughout all the aspects of her wedding flowers and venue decor. She was so creative and she went to such a lot of trouble to bring together all these lovely touches which made the wedding so special and individual. It was hard not get totally excited and want to go beyond the call of duty to make sure the wedding flowers were a complete reflection of her vision. Gypsophila wedding flowers have made a real comeback as they are perfect for lacey bridal gowns and vintage dreamy weddings.
In the Orangery we created 2 amazing bloomy urn displays, placed on ivory plinth stands, which nicely complemented the soft ivory, creams and peach colour scheme Nicola had chosen. Nicola’s bouquet, finished with lace around the handle, was simply gorgeous, with Peach Avalanche roses, Djoena roses, Avalanche roses, paeonies and dreamy lacey gyposophila wedding flowers – lots and lots of texture and the delicate dainty gypsophila blooms truly complemented the vintage lace dress! Her 4 bridesmaids carried smaller versions of her bouquet, and her 2 young teen flower girls had matching smaller posies.
Along the ceremony table and the top table, we lined up pretty lace filligreed edged pots with posies of gyposohila clouds and posies of roses and gyposphila. These were painstakingly adorned with cream ribbons studded with pearls. In the wall alcove, we placed a matching larger display surrounded by petal scatter and frosted votives and along the ledges of the grand arched windows we reused the guest table centre displays. The overall effect was just dreamy and vintage through and through.
In the conservatory, along the floor to ceiling windows, we hung 5 vintage bird cages overflowing with pretty flowers and dripping with pearl strings and crystal strands. I would have loved to see these in the evening, when the pillar candles inside them could be lit up, it must have looked amazingly romantic.
