Charlie and Christopher pulled out all the stops for their stunning wedding at Cain Manor, a gorgeous private venue that combines historical character with luxurious modern touches. The couple got in touch when their original florist told them they would no longer be able to provide the flowers for the big day. I was happy to step in at late notice as it was immediately clear that Charlie had a great eye for detail and beautiful taste. She asked for just the sort of flowers I love to create.
Charlie and her army of eight (and why not eh?) bridesmaids carried neat and moundy bouquets of flowers in whites, creams, blush and pale pinks. The flowers included hydrangeas, scented garden roses, peonies and gypsophila for an uber-pretty ruffly look. They looked like ice-creams ready to be devoured, all lined up on their box ready for delivery…
Hair combs with sprigs of white gypsophila for the bridesmaids and blush pink ‘Sweet Avalanche’ roses for the gents added the finishing touches to the bridal party outfits…
This was the first wedding I had set up in my new van (named ‘Veronica’ after one of my fave flowers of course… everyone names their vehicles right?), and the drive off the main road through woodland to Cain Manor was beautiful on such a warm sunny morning. Also a new venue for me- always exciting to see the space in person!
Nice big luxurious pedestal designs coupled with cute jars of gypsophila for the chairs set the tone for the ceremony. I thought they looked great with the elegant white chairs… good chairs can really make a big difference to the overall look in a room.
And here’s a great shot that I stole (with permission) from one of Charlie’s guests, of the beautiful bride herself… scrumptious!
Big congrats to the new Mr and Mrs Marx. What a fab do.
