I really loved working with Charlie and her mum on plans for this wedding. They were just good people with nice ideas, and some refreshing, unconventional ideas for the day.
It was all a bit cloak-and-dagger at times too, with lovely mum ordering extra flowers to surprise the couple with on the day. It was all rather exciting really!
We went for a mix of flowers in colours to complement the season, as well as both venues; Southampton Art Gallery and The Cromwell Arms in Romsey. Now, Southampton Art Gallery was a new one for me, and I really think more people should get married here. It’s so light and airy and beautiful; a hidden gem tucked away in the back of the civic centre.
The bridal flowers had a fabulous combination of colours and textures, including sunflowers, one of Charlie’s favourites…
The art gallery and reception decor included big naturalistic designs and smaller, fun arrangements in beer and spirit bottles (which the couple’s friends and family had been drinking their way through for months!).
It’s so nice to do something a little less ‘weddingy’ once in a while. I was also lucky enough to witness Charlie’s reaction when she first saw the reception room all set for dinner… that moment is priceless.
Congrats guys! Happy married-ness!
