Pastel Perfect Wedding Flowers

Stunning Pastel Wedding Flowers at Wiston House

This gorgeous pastel blush-pink, lilac and creams wedding at Wiston House was just fantastic to be part of!  Not only were Jemma and Mike a lovely couple, but their wedding venue – Wiston House near Brighton, was a real pleasure to style… and also get to.  Quite a long drive from us, but a  very relaxed one, so it was  totally worth it as soon as I drove through the gate!  As I approached the stunning house set in its own massive grounds (complete with inquisitive sheep), near Steyning in Sussex, I felt miles away in body and spirit, from the hectic M25.

We used a pretty mix of country garden flowers including roses, sweet peas, lisianthus, dahlias, scabiosa, freesia, scented stocks and hydrangeas.  pastel pink, cream and lilac bridal flowers at wiston housepastel pink, cream and lilac bridesmaids bouquetswild rustic country garden bridal bouquet of roses, dahlias, lisianthus, scabiosa, freesias, and sweet peas, in ivory, blush and lilacThe red wedding bus, donning a cute garland of dainty flowers and mixed nicoli and cinerea eucalyptus, took the whole wedding party from Wiston House to St Andrews Church in Steyning, for the wedding ceremony. The pretty church was decorated with high up displays made by the church florists team, to which we added dainty pew end posies of pretty flowers in re-usable hanging silver vases.  red bus garland of foliage and flowerspew end flower posies in hanging pots vases, at st andrews church in steyningst andrews church steyning weddingst andrews church wedding in steyning

Back by red wedding bus at Wiston House, the wedding breakfast room was simply stunning.  In the incredibly light and airy reception room with the tallest and most amazing fireplace I have ever seen, the effect was so amazing – the lovely flowers simply added the icing on the cake.

Jemma and Mike opted for 2 really amazing huge floral displays to frame the beautiful fireplace, and the guest tables were dressed with matching opulent vintage silver candelabras bursting with pretty flowers. The cute pew ends posies of flowers were brought back from the church and used around the base of the candelabra. Pretty pastel macaroons, vintage cut glass and crystal table settings  and gorgeous lace chair sashes finished off this look perfectly.  The top table, backed by the amazing grand fireplace, was styled with bouquets in mercury glass vases and matching vintage votives and candle holders.   I particularly enjoyed styling the wooden rustic table seating plan with rustic flowers and foliage corner garlands.
