A Woodland Wedding with an eco theme, at a gorgeous local Sussex venue...
'Moody pastels' was how Rosie described her colour palette, using wild, natural, seasonal flowers. She wanted us to include berries, seedheads and grasses - and for the bouquets to be exhuberant and flowy. It was important to Rosie and Jon that their Wedding suppliers were local to the venue, and we are situated just a few minutes away.
We cut the flowers fresh from our cutting garden... Dahlias, including the gorgeous Cafe au Lait, Scabious, Eryngium, Lavendar, Rosebuds, Verbena bonariensis, Ammi visnaga, Nigella seedpods, brambles, and Silver Birch to create hand-tied bouquets for her and the two Bridesmaids.
For their hair, we wired little pompom Dahlias and foliage for their hairdresser to weave in.
The wild theme continued through the buttonholes, wrist corsages and little girls' circlet, with brambles, seedpods, Hypericum berries, delicate Dahlias and Rosebuds.
We created a flower cascade for the ceremony area... a delightful crearing in the woods, complete with seating, and a raised platform for the 'arch'. We used Dahlia heads tied on strings to create the effect.
Rosie and Jon collected a lovely range of quirky and vintage vessels for the dining tables, and we filled them with more of the seasonal and wild stems from our cutting garden.
It was a real pleasure to be a part of Rosie and Jon's big day, and we especially love to see our flowers dressing a venue so close to where they have been grown.
Thank you to Emma from Kent Wedding Photography - Epic Love Storyfor the super pics (the first four here).
Love My Dress have featured Rosie and Jon's Wedding on their fabulous blog, with lots of super inspirational ideas as well. ...'Honestly we couldn't have been happier with our flowers, you did the most amazing job. I've managed to press quite a few flowers from my bouquet which I'm going to get framed and the hydrangeas have dried so beautifully, they're in a vase on the mantelpiece!... Rosemary.
