I do miss blogging when I haven’t done a post for a while and with us being in the thick of wedding season it has all got a little bit crazy here at HQ and blogging I’m sad to say has been on the back burner! However today I have managed to find time to share this corker of a wedding with you from back in June. Yellows, whites & blue blooms for a rustic meets retro wedding at The House Meadow in Kent.
Becky and Jay were just the coolest and loveliest couple to work with and had so many fun and quirky touches to their day which was held at the stunning House Meadow. It was also awesome being able to work with the insanely talented Jenny from Bellaboo and Beau, if you have been following our work for a while then you will know that we have had the pleasure of working with Jen on a number of amazing shoots along with Vicky and Paddy’s wedding back in 2014 (my gosh where has that time gone). Right from the off we just totally ‘got’ each other which in the world of creatives is a pretty special thing.
For Becky and Jay’s floral brief they wanted the arrangements to have a just pick meadow vibe in keeping with the venue and we used a plethora of different varieties and textures including splashes of peach to bring a bit of warmth to the ceremony and table centres using exquisite British garden roses which smelt incredible.
Shepard hook arrangements lined the aisle and we added hanging lace ribbon to tie in with the lace back drop which Jenny created for the arbour (always thinking of the details) to which we added fleurs too which tied in nicely with the roses which were already there.
I absolutely adore this image captured by Rachel, pure joy and happiness that feeling of walking back up the aisle as husband and wife, aww I know it well….
Their reception was held in a marquee which Jenny dressed with tall birch tree branches and paper lanterns in peach, yellows and pale blues. To compliment this for their table designs we created an eclectic mix of milk bottles brimming with flowers in yellows, whites, blues and peach some of which included; garden roses, stocks, delphinium, scabious, astilbe, flowring mint and sweet peas so you can imagine they smelt divine!
The gorgeous naked cake was created by the talented Ketta from Flossie Pops Cakery which she decorated with oddles of strawberries and blackberries along with some of our blooms. It’s probably a good thing that I work with flowers and not cakes as I am 99% sure I would be constantly ‘sampling’ the food as I made it! The cake then sat on a vintage record player which tied in perfectly with the envelopes on Becky & Jay’s invites which were made into vinyl covers, I know super cool right!
The biggest congratulations to Mr and Mrs Hodges, thank you for allowing us to flower your special day and I wish you lots of love and happiness for the future.
