Claire and Simon brought a bit of continental sophistication to Wimborne for their mid-May wedding. There was a Tour de France themed seating plan, vintage bicycles, french-numbered tables, crepes cooked to order, and the most exquisite colour scheme and informal blooms. I had no doubt that this big day à la française would be a super-stylish one.
To complement a palette of greys, greens and neutral tones, we went for blousey ivory flowers like roses and peonies, with juicy succulent plants, silvery eucalyptus, lambs ears and ranunculus. A few ‘Quicksand’ roses, with their nude/buff colouring, added a bit of depth.
At the reception, in Deans Court’s beautiful lake-side marquee, we dressed the tables with a collection of jugs, bottles and jars, each with an ‘unarranged’ bundle of flowers. Set on thick slices of oak and hessian cloth runners, these gave an informal effect. We also added some buckets with living succulents and fresh artichokes (LOVED these!).
The cake was just as divine as I’ve come to expect from Jenny B of Miss Ingredient Cake Company. Four fat tiers of naked sponge, dusted with icing sugar and adorned with peonies, ranunculus, roses and blackberries. Delicious!
Oo-la-la! What a beautiful wedding! I reckon you guys might have future careers as wedding stylists. Big congratulations once again; it was great to be part of your day.
