Back in February I was asked by Sheena if I would like to take part in a fashion shoot for her new range of wedding dresses? Would I? Of course, I love Sheena’s style and her dress collections are dream worthy.

This was a studio shoot to catalogue the new collection and was more about the dresses than the flowers but Sheena knows it is easier for brides to see the whole image of how they will look on their day with hair, make up and flowers in place.

Wedding ceremony table with display and bay trees

Branston Hall

Kerry was married at Branston Hall in The Churchill Suite.

Keeping the flowers simple and neutral I provided a long and low design for the ceremony table in a m ix as the bridal bouquet.

The reception was also held in The Churchill Suite and the room is turned around after the ceremony, with me setting up the tables in the bar area, which is why these are a little dark!

The centrepieces are lily vases with a top display of roses, spray roses, freesia, spray carnations, stallion chrysants and gyp with various foliage and trailing ivy.

Once delivered the bridal flowers are generally left in the bar area as it is generally cooler than the guest rooms.

I also provided some ‘Thank you’ flowers to be given during the speeches.

Kerry also married last spring and her theme was very neutral with all flowers either white or ivory.

Her bouquet was a lovely mix of ivory roses, spray roses, white freesia and gyp. Added in was a small amount of asparagus fern to lift the flowers against her dress.

Helen held her ceremony at The White Hart Hotel in Lincoln. The ceremony room is a lovely space, with the overhead dome letting in plenty of light.

We framed the ceremony space with a free standing archway covered in organza and with a front garland of foliage and bunches of various types of small daffodils and narcissus.

Bay trees with ivory roses and organza finished off the look.

The ceremony table was also treated to a long and low display of a mix of ivory roses, narcissus, daffodils and a few sweet peas. This was later transferred to the top table.

My bouquet was absolutely stunning Sandra as were the rest of the bridal parties flowers. Thank you so much, just what I wanted.

Thank you so much for my gorgeous wedding flowers. Everyone commented how nice they were and mine was amazing, thank you.

The flowers were beautiful, thank you – everyone commented on them.

I just wanted to get in touch to say my wedding bouquets were stunning, they matched the vintage, natural theme of our wedding perfectly and I couldn’t have been happy with them. I really appreciated being made to feel at ease straight away and being reminded it was my day so I could make decisions about what I wanted. I truly appreciated all your hard work and what you did to make them perfect. An extra thank you also for arriving early on the morning of the big day, it was great knowing the flowers were ready even if the bridal party wasn’t.

Thank you for such beautiful creations for the day, we had so many compliments on all the flowers. They were absolutely stunning and crowned the day beautifully! The whole day was perfect, shame it went so quickly.
